In this episode of Poets of the Restoration we learn about the life of Ruth May Fox. She was born November 16th, 1853, in Westbury, Wiltshire, England. Although her family is unsympathetic towards Latter-day Saints, Ruth’s father highly encourages her to join the Church at a young age, and her faith remains strong throughout her entire lifetime. Ruth travels to America in 1865 and makes her way to Utah two years later to become one of the most influential women’s rights advocates of her time. Her poetry is used as an expression of the goodness in life and her deep faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
