Publisher's Description

"How dreadfully old I am getting! Sixteen!" So begins 'Stepping Heavenward' by Elizabeth Prentiss, the journal-like account of a nineteenth century girl who learns, on the path to womanhood, that true happiness can be found in giving oneself for others. "This book is a treasure of both Godly and womanly wisdom told with disarming candor and humility, yet revealing a deep heart's desire to know God," says noted Christian speaker Elisabeth Elliot. "I do not hesitate to recommend it to men, who need to understand the wives they live with, and to any woman who wants to walk with God."

    This review was written for Stepping Heavenward.
    I had had this book on my shelf for years before I finally picked it up and decided to read it. Being a lover of classic Christian literature, I was immediately pulled into this story of a young, self-serving woman becoming a blossoming, mature Christian who learned the value of a true relationship with the Lord. As this young woman writes in her journal, she is painfully honest about her own feelings, struggles, and desires. Some have suggested that this is Elizabeth Prentiss's own journal. The way it is written does indicate that possibility. A life-changing book that I would highly recommend to anyone who loves reading the older works and who enjoys the vocabulary and richness of language used by authors of past centuries.

    This book is good for all ladies , esp young ladies that might be feeling some of the conflict Katherine writes about.

    She writes in total honesty. Good reading.

    I discovered this book several years ago and bought a copy for myself. The journalistic style of the story made it seem so realistic. It spoke to my heart. Since then I have bought copies for all the special girls in my life, most recently my future daughter-in-law. The book itself is the bargain copy and in paperback form, but has held up well. The picture on the front is attractive.

    While driving in the car, I heard a chapter read from 'Stepping Heavenward' on Christian radio. The passage read spoke of balancing our study & meditation of the Word with the enjoyment of art & music. We're made for both. It was beautifully written & I fell in love with the book....Went home & ordered it. Even tho it was written so long ago, it is amazingly relevant.

    A timeless book that reaches right to the heart of the Christian. I read it often and it always inspires me in my walk to draw closer to the Lord. A refreshing Biblical view of children as well :)
