- Poems And Prayers Of Helen Steiner Rice, The
by Virginia J. Ruehlmann (Compiler)
The first, largest, and most complete Rice collection ever.
Helen Steiner Rice rose beyond tragedy and disappointment to inspire millions. Over eight decades, she penned thousands of poems and prayers to give comfort and hope through some of history's darkest moments. In the process, she became one of the first American women to introduce faith into the workplace and popular culture.
This beautifully crafted collection includes nearly four hundred poems-sixteen of them rare and previously uncollected, and one never-before-published prayer discovered in the Helen Steiner Rice Foundation archives. Organized by topic, this book features subjects Helen returned to again and again--from musings on heaven and the beauty in nature to odes of love for friends and family. It's a definitive volume packed with love for generations past and a hope for those to come.
- Verses of Virtue: The Poetry and Prose of Christian Womanhood
by Elizabeth Beall Phillips
From the Psalms of David, to the poetry of Isaiah, to the verses of Deborah, to the songs of Solomon, and even the divinely inspired prose of John foretelling the return of the bridegroom, our Lord uses the beauty of language to motivate and to inspire. These are God's verses of virtue, and they served as the inspiration for untold hundreds of books and poems dedicated to a Christian vision for motherhood and home which once defined the landscape of American family life.
Beall Phillips seeks to revive this vision. In Verses of Virtue she draws from some of the most heart-warming and inspirational verses from Scripture, America's illustrious past, and even antiquity to provide women with a volume brimming with encouragement. Compiled and Edited by Elizabeth Beall Phillips.
