Aunt Jane's Hero, The Little Preacher, The Home at Greylock & Thoughts Concerning the King
ELIZABETH PAYSON PRENTISS

AUNT JANE'S HERO

Aunt Jane was a widow who was rich with wisdom and advice for everyone she knew. Horace was injured in the Civil War which helped turn his soul to God. Because of Aunt Jane's advice, Horace courageously went ahead with his marriage plans while having little means to support a family. Horace and Maggie demonstrated a lifestyle that showed what is important in life: two hearts that loved each other and God. They did not have many material possessions, but they valued their riches in Christ.

Aunt Jane said to Horace, "The truth is, I want you to set an example to the hosts of young men who are living unsatisfactory, bachelor, boarding-house lives. In nine cases out of ten pride lies at the bottom of these lives. Because they can't begin where their fathers and mothers left off, they won't begin at all. They dry up and stagnate for want of an object."

Paperback 6X9, 186 pages

THE HOME AT GREYLOCK

When the large family came together for Christmas at Greylock there was much discussion about children and how to raise them. Mrs. Grey left a legacy of wisdom and comfort to all who knew her. "To follow in the footsteps of that venerated and beloved one [Mrs. Grey], was ambition enough for her; to serve God as she had served Him, to lend herself to every human soul that needed her, as she had done; this was her choice. The humble pathway was little heeded by a world that, struggling for the honors of life, cannot conceive of their being deliberately put by. But it was watched by the eye of God, and how often He met her upon and blessed her in it, is known only to Him."

Paperback 6X9, 236 pages

THE LITTLE PREACHER

Herman had an unfortunate injury and was forced to lay in bed and think. His grandmother told him to “ask our dear Lord why He spared his life on that terrible night, since surely it was to do something for Him.” Soon after that little Herman received a special gift from God. Herman’s father became very sick and “lay, day after day, night after night, in profound sleep.” Max realized “My long sickness has made me another man.” The story illustrates how God uses affliction to develop spiritual life in people.

THOUGHTS CONCERNING THE KING

Elizabeth Prentiss was a devoted follower of Jesus who wrote down a portion of her life’s accumulated wisdom. The preface states: “These selections were originally made for private use. By permission of Dr. Prentiss they are now published in their present form.” The book is a collection of short but weighty paragraphs of text and poetry.

ELIZABETH PAYSON PRENTISS (1818–1878) was born in Portland, Maine. She had a feeble constitution and often battled sickness. Her writing talent became evident at an early age and she wrote for "The Youth's Companion" magazine. She had a natural gift for teaching and taught in a school in Richmond, Virginia. She had a religious life, but it wasn't until 1840 that the love of Christ became alive in her soul. She married Rev. George Lewis Prentiss in 1845, who was a pastor and became a professor of pastoral theology at Union Theological Seminary in New York. She published "Stepping Heavenward" in 1869 and it became very popular all over the world, having been translated into dozens of languages. She also wrote hymns, such as MORE LOVE TO THEE which is still popular in churches everywhere.
