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 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 :)

    Stepping Heavenward

    Elizabeth Prentiss

    This is my favorite book of all time. I have given this to many people for it is a story that is worth sharing and a book I have read through many times. It is about a young woman and the life she lived written through her journal and some letters. It is so realistic that it seems real and is easy to forget that it is a work of fiction. It is filled with faith, life, death and family the core elements of what day to day life is. Unlike many stories this one move through a large part of her life, there are ups and downs. A book that feels so real it was as if you were peeking into someone's life.
