"Book Three in the Gutsy Girls: Strong Christian Women Who Impacted the World series introduces readers to real-life hymn writer and steadfast advocate, Fanny Crosby. Shortly after birth, Fanny Crosby became blind. However, Fanny didn't let blindness, or any obstacle, stop her from living out God's plan for her life. Even though Fanny was known for being a gifted hymn writer, she spent much of her time serving others. Fanny created pills to help fight cholera, insisted on living in one of New York City's worst tenements, gave away almost all the money she earned, knitted mittens for soldiers, counseled prisoners, and constantly spoke of God's great love."--Amazon.
