The beloved author of the Little House books was not only one of America's great pioneer storytellers but a woman of vibrant faith.
A Prairie Girl's Faith provides the first extended, in depth discussion of the Christian faith of one of America's most beloved pioneer women--Laura Ingalls Wilder. Although the faith of the Ingalls' family pervades books in the Little House series, the more specific details of Laura's faith have never been fully explored. It took extraordinary pluck for anyone to survive the harshness of frontier life--from the heartbreak of sudden crop losses to murderous storms to unrelenting loneliness. This book reveals how in surviving, the brave Laura drew not just on her character, but found encouragement, strength, and hope in her relationship with God.
I am a huge Little House on the Prairie fan so I was so excited to get this book. One of the things that I love and admire the most about their family is their faith. I was thrilled to get to read more about that part of their lives. This book is written in a way that makes it super easy to pick up, read a bit, and then put it down for the rest of the day. That is what this mom needs in most books! It is written in short little "stories" or examples of how they lived because of their faith. I loved this book and will treasure the ideas and stories in it. I highly recommend this book especially for Little House lovers!
I received this book for free in exchange for my honest opinion.
