    Stepping Heavenward by Elizabeth Prentiss.Stepping Heavenward

    The diary began after Katherine received a new desk and writing utensils for her sixteenth birthday. Her journal contained many thoughts about herself, life and God. She came face to face with her own selfishness, weakness and lack of spiritual interest, but struggled onward. Soon married life brought many challenges and reflections. A quote from the book: "And I think some of the best, most contrite, most useful of men and women, whose prayers prevail with God, and bring down blessings into the homes in which they dwell, often possess unlovely traits that furnish them with their best discipline." An important quote from Jean Paul Friedrich Richter is "our course heavenward is like the plan of the zealous pilgrims of old, who for every three steps forward, took one backward." Earnest Christians are sure to be pleased with the wisdom for everyday life contained in this book.

    Aunt Jane's HeroAunt Jane's Hero by Elizabeth Prentiss.

    Aunt Jane was a widow who was rich with wisdom and advice for everyone she knew. Horace was injured in the Civil War which helped turn his soul to God. Because of Aunt Jane's advice, Horace courageously went ahead with his marriage plans while having little means to support a family. Horace and Maggie demonstrated a lifestyle that showed what is important in life: two hearts that loved each other and God. They did not have many material possessions, but they valued their riches in Christ.

    Aunt Jane said to Horace, "The truth is, I want you to set an example to the hosts of young men who are living unsatisfactory, bachelor, boarding-house lives. In nine cases out of ten pride lies at the bottom of these lives. Because they can't begin where their fathers and mothers left off, they won't begin at all. They dry up and stagnate for want of an object."

  • The Home at Greylock

    The Home at GreylockThe Home at Greylock by Elizabeth Prentiss.

    When the large family came together for Christmas at Greylock there was much discussion about children and how to raise them. Mrs. Grey left a legacy of wisdom and comfort to all who knew her. "To follow in the footsteps of that venerated and beloved one [Mrs. Grey], was ambition enough for her; to serve God as she had served Him, to lend herself to every human soul that needed her, as she had done; this was her choice. The humble pathway was little heeded by a world that, struggling for the honors of life, cannot conceive of their being deliberately put by. But it was watched by the eye of God, and how often He met her upon and blessed her in it, is known only to Him." Paperback 6X9, 236 pages. ISBN 9781941281031; Amazon.com link

    Relious PoemsReligious Poems by Elizabeth Prentiss.

    Elizabeth Prentiss wrote 122 poems that “depict some of the deepest experiences of her Christian life . . . they are her tears of joy or of sorrow, her cries of anguish, and her songs of love and triumph.” The epigraph states: “The testimony of one soul is the experience of thousands.” As Harper’s Magazine (1874) wrote: “These poems . . . will give strength to many that feel the weariness, and faint under it, and that need just this cry of a labored trust as a means of conduct to the higher experience of joyous trust.”
