Stepping Heavenward is one of my top three favorite books of all time. It never fails to inspire me to live more fully for Christ and dedicate myself more totally to the job of raising my children for God's glory. Whenever I find a used copy available, I always pick it up and pass them along to friends, family, and acquaintances.

This was very inspirational. It is a story of a young girl who grows deeper in love with Jesus and you get to watch her faith grow throughout her years of journalling. I found it beautiful and filled with love and truth of the Lord. I think mothers especially would enjoy this story.

Five stars. Amazing journey of one woman's life from her introduction to God to a life of love and service for God. This book was a stepping stone to my receiving Christ as my Saviour a month ago. The first half of the book is a bit dry but please don't give up. The last half of the book is amazing and life changing. Enjoy!

I couldn't put this book down!! I've read it several times, and each time, I get something new out of it. Everyone I've recommended it to has loved it too. In fact when I loan it out, I never get it back, they always ask to keep it. That is why I ordered two copies this time.

This is the story of a young woman just turning 16 in 1831 and follows her into adulthood, through courting, marriage, having a family. It chronicles her Christian life, and how she wishes to only please God in all she does.

From the back cover: "How dreadflly old I am getting" writes Katherine in her brand-new journal on January 15, 1831. Her heartfelt words mark the start of your own unforgettable journey following Katherine as her life unfolds from sweet sixteen to her grown-up later years. As she learns that true happiness is found in giving oneself to others, you, too, will be immeasurably encouraged to step heavenward - to live with greater godliness, humility, tranquillity and hope"

I highly recommend this book.

I have to admit I trudged through the first few chapters thinking I was not going to like this book. However, I suddenly became engrossed in the endearing life of a young woman struggling to overcome the natural selfishness we all share, and learn to live life to its fullest by giving to others. Katherine is an easy girl to relate to, meaning that when she learns a hard lesson, you do as well.

The book starts when Katherine is 16 and decides it is about time she devote herself to writing a journal about her life. Follow Katherine as she grows into womanhood.

A beautifully written book by Elizabeth Prentiss, one that every girl and woman should read.

Incredible book! This is one of my favorite books. I couldn't put it down and actually looked forward to waiting on the doctor's office just so I could read more. I have recommended it to every lady I know who enjoys reading.

A guide for those who desire to leave the dull, indifference of spiritual mediocrity to discover the rick, deep joy of knowing Jesus more fully.

Very good. This is a girl's journal. Written in the early 18oos.

For a fiction work, it was excellent. I'm just a nonfiction/biography kind of gal. :) I think my daughters will really like it because they enjoy reading fiction a lot.
