"How dreadfully old I am getting! Sixteen!"
Thus begins the lifelong diary of young Katherine as she pours out her hopes, dreams, and spiritual journey on the pages of her dear. old journal. Whimsical and charming Katherine is engagingly candid about her character flaws and her desire to know God.
As you listen to her share her heart through these journal entries, you will be amazed and delighted by the depth of her character and the womanly wisdom and godliness she develops over the years.
From the agonies of being a teenager to the delicate balancing act between being a wife/mother/daughter/neighbor, it is easy to relate to Katherine's triumphs and trials whether you are 16 or 60. Listen to her unforgettable story set in the early 1800's as you are encouraged to "step heavenward," and don't be surprised if you find yourself recommending it to all of your friends and family!
Stepping Heavenward is one of the most beneficial books I've read to my daughters so far. There is so much depth in this book, even though it is slightly old-fashioned. The biblical principles contained in this book are definitely timeless!
I've also found an accompanying Bible study to go along with reading the book: Stepping Heavenward: A Bible Study Based on the book by Elizabeth Prentiss. Working slowly through this guide as we read the book has definitely had a lot of benefits!
I'm including the printed PDF version of Chapter 1 here, as well as two different audio players containing Chapter 1. Please let me know if you have difficulty accessing any of these.
Also, you'll see a 90-day program for individual use and helps women have daily devotions by doing assignments like prayer, writing in a journal, reading the Bible and reading portions from the book, Stepping Heavenward. It is a neat companion devotional tool that can be used to accompany a reading (or hearing) of Stepping Heavenward.
Thank you, Mrs. White of The Legacy for Home,for allowing us to share your personal Bible study journaling PDF that accompanies Stepping Heavenward.
If you aren't able to get the above player to work, you can listen to and download the audio chapters of Stepping Heavenward here:
