This week on Fieldstone Common, Marian Pierre-Louis interviews Prof. Ava Chamberlain, author of The Notorious Elizabeth Tuttle: Marriage, Murder, and Madness in the Family of Jonathan Edwards.
Who was Elizabeth Tuttle?
In most histories, she is a footnote, a blip. At best, she is a minor villain in the story of Jonathan Edwards, perhaps the greatest American theologian of the colonial era. Many historians consider Jonathan Edwards a theological genius, wildly ahead of his time, a Puritan hero. Elizabeth Tuttle was Edwards’s “crazy grandmother,” the one whose madness and adultery drove his despairing grandfather to divorce.
In this compelling and meticulously researched work of micro-history, Ava Chamberlain unearths a fuller history of Elizabeth Tuttle. It is a violent and tragic story in which anxious patriarchs struggle to govern their households, unruly women disobey their husbands, mental illness tears families apart, and loved ones die sudden deaths. Through the lens of Elizabeth Tuttle, Chamberlain re-examines the common narrative of Jonathan Edwards’s ancestry, giving his long-ignored paternal grandmother a voice.
The Notorious Elizabeth Tuttle not only brings to light the tragic story of an ordinary woman living in early New England, it also explores the deeper tension between the ideal of Puritan family life and its messy reality, complicating the way America has thought about its Puritan past.
Ava Chamberlain is Associate Professor of Religion at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio. She is the editor of The “Miscellanies,” Nos. 501-832, vol. 18 of The Works of Jonathan Edwards.

Does it feel like a constant fight? Your children drag their feet on cleaning their rooms and nothing's ever tidy.
It doesn't have to be a fight. In fact, you can actually create a scenario where your children want to take care of their space. All it takes is a shift in thinking.

Author Tia Bach has become a very special friend to me since I first 'met' her while doing a Blog Challenge. Her book resonated with me in so many ways, both great and small, that I had to have her on the show this month to talk about the very special relationship that she shares with her mother, and how we all relate to that unique part of our lives. As Tia says: "Writing this novel with my mom was a true gift. Finally I could tap into the creative writing I always yearned to do. As much as I treasure my life as mom and wife, I'm excited to see all the paths I'm still yet to take. If nothing else, I've learned that life is an unpredictable journey."

Most of us were raised to be victims in this world. It's not that we didn't have power over our lives from the time we were young—we were just given a false script. Many of us believed that power over our lives existed outside of ourselves. But the truth is, we've always been in charge of creating our lives. And now that consciousness on the planet is shifting, it's even easier to support your children in knowing the truth and helping them play from a place of being a creator. This show will give you three practical (and fun) tips to help your children consciously practice creating their lives.
Quote of the Day "If I can help parents create harmony, cooperation, and understanding in their family system, I've done more for the planet than if I had tried to bring world peace in some global way."
Caller Questions 1. Becky, Type 2: I feel like I've done a lot of clearing, but my children keep bringing things up. I feel like I'm missing a piece of something I'm supposed to do—how do I find it? (Listen at 31:20) 2. LaurieKae, Type 1: Is there any danger in opening the floodgates with the Law of Attraction? How do we keep a balance (or is there a balance) between the energy we've created for ourselves and what we're trying to achieve? (Listen at 40:56) We can create so much more than just more money in our bank accounts (although that's an important thing to create). The truth is, you and I are meant to create something bigger, more important, and more global than that, just by creating harmony in our individual lives—listen in at 40:56 to hear what it is.

Your child brought new energy to help your family shift… …shift from a lower vibration to a higher level of consciousness. Your child is a gift, a messenger, and if you pay attention, that child will help you see your limiting beliefs and patterns in a way you never could otherwise. Today’s show shares how you know if your child is more highly evolved, and what that means for your family.
Caller Questions 1. Email question: How do I help my Type 2 son who gets nervous about going back to school after the weekend? (Listen at 32:00) Just as children with Type 2 energy often do, you need to ask some questions. The answers to these questions will help you understand where this child is feeling pressure and how you can make this child feel more comfortable. 2. Email question: My daughter, who used to love staying with other people, now cries every time I leave. What do I do? (Listen at 35:13) This child’s stress signals are a huge indicator that something in that environment is contrary to her nature. The way you approach the situation is all dependent on your perceptions. 3. Amanda, Type 2: How do I exercise and get the results I want without going against my natural energy? (Listen at 40:03) This is a great question, and not just for people who express Type 2 energy. Amanda also asks an important question about when your emotional baggage stops weighing down on your life. 4. LaurieKae, Type 1: My child has natural gifts I’ve heard about but don’t understand–how do I approach that? (Listen at 49:30) Her son has some very unique gifts in things he’s able to both sense and see. This is an amazing opportunity to open the whole family up to some beautiful experiences and higher consciousness.
