About the Author

Frances Ridley Havergal (1836-1879) was an English poet and hymn writer. She began writing verses at the young age of seven. She wrote many hymns including the well know one: "Take My Life and Let It Be." Other hymns written by her include: "Like A River Glorious,""I Gave My Life for Thee,"and "Who Is on the Lord's Side?" as well as others. She published several volumes of poems and hymns. Her book "Kept For the Master's Use is based on her hymn Take My Life and Let It Be, Consecrated, Lord to Thee.

About the book:

In her book Kept For the Masters Use, Miss Havergal encourages the reader to take every aspect of life and consecrate it for the Lord's use. Thought provoking, wonderful book, it really made me examine my heart and want afresh to dedicate my life, and all, for Jesus Christ. He has given His all for me by His death on the cross of Calvary. Praise His name for His grace and mercy! I Highly recommend this book.

It can be purchased for $6.25 through this company.

Emily,
The first time that I had ever heard of Miss Havergal was in a Issacharian Daughter Newsletter 019 witch told her testamony. She really inspired me. She also wrote a devotional book called Royal Bounty that I am reading right now,very good. To read that newsletter go to this website:

P.S. Just a suggestion, it may be helpful for your readers if you created a hyperlink out the price to Keepers of the Faith. If you don't know how to do that email me and I tell you, it is so simple.
