Stepping heavenward by E Prentiss( Book )

2 editions published in 1871 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Stepping Heavenward" by Elizabeth Prentiss (first published in 1869), tells the story of Kate and her quest to live a better life. By watching her godly mother (with whom she becomes easily irritated at times), Kate learns about striving for excellence. A no-nonsense approach to Christian living, "Stepping Heavenward" employs good humor, all the while leading the reader to ponder deeper, eternal matters. The diary of Kate reveals innocence coupled with an acute awareness of her naturally human tendencies to selfishness. Through "Stepping Heavenward," we learn that small things really do matter, as Kate matures into a young woman with true depth of character. While Kate's freckle-faced candor is truly refreshing, the artfully penned expressions woven throughout "Stepping Heavenward" also provide great reading. There is humor, seriousness, and some sadness as Kate progresses through the stages of life. Through it all, author Elizabeth Prentiss displays an astounding ability to put the struggles faced by all men and women who desire to live for Christ yet are confronted by their flawed humanity, into words. "Stepping Heavenward" is an elevating, and interesting, book that both mothers and daughters will enjoy. - Amazon
