1: My name is John Knox one of the greatest reformers of all time. I have worked as a slave, a bodyguard and I even married a 17 year old young girl when I was 50. Who gave me three beautiful daughters. Well that is the over view now let's go into detail.

2: I was born 1513 in Haddington Scotland. This is also where I grew up. As soon as I was born I was destined for priesthood. I enrolled at the University of Glasgow in 1522. I was learning from John Major. He was in my opinion the

9: I even wrote a famous book on the history of the reformation in which it took me years to finish.I even made a to do list in which I fulfilled all the tasks.

10: The To Do List: 1. Met a religious founder. 2.Become a founder of something. 3. Work in a big church. 4. Learn from the best farmer I know(my dad) 5. Learn a lot about my mom who die when I was at a very young age.

11: I met Calvin who was the founder of Calvinism, and by many I am considered the founder of the Presbyterian denomination. My favorite part of my life was working in the Church of England. I learned how to farm, especially corn, and I found out I get my

12: intelligence from my mom who's maiden name was Sinclair. Therefore, I didn't get to learn as much about her as I would have liked. But hey, you take what you can get. After my exciting life I died on...
