Overview

"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.

Read this book only if you truly desire to be challenged, convicted and encouraged. It will mean nothing unless you're totally committed to Christ. Elizabeth Prentiss learned what the crucified life is, through each act of service to her family, and in doing so showed us all the path of Love.

Great book. Love the story. In my opinion it should be a must read for all Christians. My only complaint is there were a few words you have to figure out yourself because of the digital reproduction. Some of the words I could never figure out and just had to skip them But it was not a big deal for me. It did not change the meaning or message of the book. Love the book!

I've read this book 7 times already and I will never get tired of reading it. It is definately an inspiration! I'd recommend this book to anyone, especially to teenage girls that aren't sure yet what living a Christ-centered life is, but want to find out. This story starts when Katy is 16, and shows how she grows in the knowledge of God.
