Tell others about Jesus like Fanny Crosby did:

Though we are not all called to a Christian Music ministry, all we who are Christians are called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians.  Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our  web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith). ______________

...writer of more than 10,000 hymns...

This is the amazing biography of the blind hymn writer, Fanny Crosby.  As the writer of more than 10,000 hymns, all penned after the age of forty, she is credited with authoring more verse than any human in history.

...she began to demonstrate an exceptional memory, and memorized several complete books of the Bible...

The tragic mistreatment by a charlatan masquerading as a doctor, blinded fanny shortly after birth.  Nevertheless, she learned to function as a sighted child except for her inability to read.  She was an extraordinary child filled with joy and mischief!  At her grandmother's knee, she began to demonstrate an exceptional memory, and memorized several complete books of the Bible, including Ruth and Proverbs.

...the first woman to address the U.S. Congress.

She left home at age 15 to begin her formal education.  One of the most notable pupils of the New York Institute for Special Education, Fanny was also the first woman to address the U.S. Congress.  Fulfilling the roles of wife, mother, friend, teacher, Nurse to the sick during the cholera epidemic, humanitarian to the poor and disenfranchised, and friend of presidents - Fanny Crosby was an exceptional woman by any standard.

...still sung today.

And her legacy lives on through the thousands of hymns that are still sung today.     ________________________
