"Aunt Jane's Hero"


Aunt Jane's Hero
By Elizabeth Prentiss
1871
"A Portrait of a Christ-Centered Home"

A wonderful book by the author of Stepping Heavenward!
This is the story of Aunt Jane's hero, Horace Wheeler, a poor and at first, worldly, young man ; and of Aunt Jane, a prayerful, kind-hearted, Christian widow.  Her prayers continually followed Horace during his life and after he enlisted in the Civil War where he became a different person spiritually and physically. Her godly wisdom had a huge impact on him; she was a true Titus 2 woman. This is a story I've read over many times, and I always come away with new encouragement to be a goldy woman, a deeper understanding of the godly home, and the importance of prayer.
