Elizabeth Prentiss: More Love to Thee
About: Elizabeth Prentiss.
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 to teach us more about his grace; the very busy times are precisely those times when we need God's strength; the worst of tragedies can draw us closer to God.
Elizabeth Prentiss is best known as the author of the popular novel Stepping Heavenward (first published 1869) and the well-loved hymn,More Love to Thee; The difficult things she experienced equipped her to minister to others through her letters, books, and poetry. To grow in love for God was the one great passion of her life: many have testified that her writings continue to inspire them with that same passion. I am grateful to Sharon James for sharing the story of this choice soul with us; a gripping, marvelous, and moving biography.
