Piety was grounded in obedience, humility, patience and silence. Advice books enjoined women from all forms of public speech, whether preaching, public writing or forms of gossip. Yet, in what is surely an extreme case, Collings wished that his own ‘tongue were so sanctified’ as Simpson’s. Moreover, as in the case of Denison and Juxon, Collings’s text incorporates Simpson’s words, giving her a platform to exhort the godly, a task in which she willingly engaged. She describes her struggle with scriptures, finally apprehended through God’s grace, and her understanding of justification.

Disparaging her own zeal and spiritual needs, ‘she was brought to plain nothing in her own eyes’. Nonetheless, we learn that Juxon fashioned her own spiritual role. She questioned Denison about theology, consulted with several godly ministers, used her deathbed to exhort family and friends, chose her own text for her funeral sermon, and wrote devotional pieces, some of which Denison included in his published sermon for the edification of his readers. Gender distinctions at such moments become blurred in the sermon.
