On Monday, Kristin shared a quote about Elizabeth Prentiss’ faithful discipline of her children. Many of you are probably familiar with her classic book, Stepping Heavenward or maybe her hymn, “More Love to Thee.” Her writings have been encouraging women for almost a century and a half.
But now, we have a chance to get to know the woman behind these well-known works. That’s right—the next installment of the girltalk book club is a new biography of Elizabeth Prentiss by Sharon James entitled: Elizabeth Prentiss: 'More Love to Thee.'
The back matter asks:
“Do you sometimes feel that you would be able to grow in love for God and others—if only your circumstances were different? Maybe you find that the sheer demands of everyday life squeeze out time for God? Perhaps a terrible tragedy has made you doubt the goodness of God?”
“Read this true story to find out how one woman discovered that:
-The most difficult circumstances are ‘God’s school’ to teach us more about his grace.
-The very busy times are precisely those times when we need—and can find—God’s strength.
-The worst of tragedies can draw us closer to God.”
I know I can’t wait to learn from the lessons God taught this godly woman!
