Perpetua - know God is by your side
This 3rd-century martyr was a nursing mom by the time she faced death in the arena at age 22. She had the foresight to document her imprisonment and feelings towards her impending execution, which are now known as the Passion of Saints Perpetua and Felicity. After being attacked by beasts, she bravely died by the sword for upholding her Christian faith.
