Who could possibly be interested in reading words written by a woman who has been dead for more than one hundred years? Actually, I believe there are many people who, for more than a century, have indeed been interested in not just her words, but her life. In fact, I think there are those, not a few, whose lives have been enriched and touched by God because of this one woman's godly character reflected in all that she has written.
But even if there were not others, I want to start this blog for me. My life has been so impacted by what I have read from the pen of Mrs. Prentiss, that whatever time and effort I put here can only do what her writings have always done--lift my heart heavenward. Now, what can be better than that? ~ mr
