Modern Kids: Marc Chagall, I and the Village, 1911

The Museum of Modern Art has not included the painting with the podcast for Marc Chagall’s I and the Village, perhaps due to copyright law. I’ve included a link to the painting. If at all possible, open two windows on your browser. Use one to listen to the podcast, the other to view the painting at the same time.

Stepping Heavenward by Elizabeth Prentiss

Spring Carl Larsson

Summary: “How dreadfully old I am getting! Sixteen!” Thus begins the lifelong diary of young Katherine as she pours out her hopes, dreams, and spiritual journey on the pages of her dear, old journal. Whimsical and charming Katherine is engagingly candid about her character flaws and her desire to know God. As you listen to her share her heart through these journal entries, you will be amazed and delighted by the depth of her character and the womanly wisdom and godliness she develops over the years. From the agonies of being a teenager to the delicate balancing act between being a wife/mother/daughter/neighbor, it is easy to relate to Katherine’s triumphs and trials whether you are 16 or 60. Listen to her unforgettable story set in the early 1800’s as you are encouraged to “step heavenward,” and don’t be surprised if you find yourself recommending it to all of your friends and family!(Introduction by Theresa Downey for Librivox)
