A Glimpse Into the Past
The cover of the "Stepping Heavenward" Girlhood Home Companion features a lovely photo of living history reenactor, Caitlin Cassin, which was taken by her friend and fellow reenactor, Annette Bethke. Both women specialize in the Civil War Era and we had the privilege of getting to know them during our research for this issue. When we found out their specialties, and the wealth of information they have accumulated from interpreting together in Texas and across the country, we asked if they would consider being interviewed for this issue's companion conversation. They graciously accepted!
I think what I loved the most was hearing these women talk about different aspects of reenacting and how it has affected their outlook on life. Caitlin shared an inspiring message about journaling and how powerful it has been to read the accounts of women who had to rely on the Lord in very difficult circumstances. She has been comforted by the testimonies of God's faithfulness and the fact that He is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
You and your daughter will enjoy the expertise of these talented women and the glimpse they give us into the past from immersing themselves in another time period.
