Abstract:

"Told in her own words, this book relates her story of a life characterized by great spiritual depth and profuse creativity. Her life was as remarkable as her writing. Blinded as an infant, Fanny Crosby began generating verses while still a young child. Her lifelong passion for God infused her lyrics with evangelistic zeal, pointing all, listeners and singers alike, to a loving and welcoming God. In the recollections, she offers the tender memories and gentles insights of a woman who lived her life not defined by limitations but bursting in creativity--all through God's love."--Inside Cover.
