Caroline Fry, later Mrs. Caroline Wilson can rightfully be considered a church theologian, a writer, a poet and a Christian educator. Fry has produced an impressive list of publications over her life. She began her professional writing career in 1823 by writing a monthly periodical called the Assistant of Education, Religious and Literary, which she intended for the education of children. In addition to writing church theology, she wrote devotional meditations, prayers, poetry and recounted moral lessons one might learn from the life stories of people she encountered in her travels throughout the English countryside published in two volumes entitled, The Listener.
