One of the foremost women leaders in the history of the Assemblies of God is Alice Reynolds Flower (1890-1991). She touched countless lives through her preaching, teaching, and writing, but most of all by her exemplary daily Christian living. She affectionately was called "Mother Flower." Alice accepted Christ at an early age and was baptized in the Holy Spirit in Indianapolis on Easter Sunday in 1907 at the age of 16. She married J. Roswell Flower, and together they started the Christian Evangel in 1913, which later became the Pentecostal Evangel. She wrote Sunday school lessons for children, poetry, and books on Christian living. In addition to speaking and writing, she taught a Sunday school class and led a weekly prayer and Bible study group at Central Assembly of God in Springfield for more than 45 years. She remained active until her death in 1991 at age 100.
In this featured audio, Dr. Delbert H. Tarr interviews "Mother" Alice Reynolds Flower, widow of J. Roswell Flower, at the Assemblies of God Graduate School, Springfield, Missouri, May 7, 1980. She tells about the early Pentecostal movement and the founding of the Assemblies of God.
