• “There’s a big difference between a life that’s a performance, and a life that’s an offering — One holds us captive. The other sets us free.” – Susie Larson

Ada R. Habershon (1861-1918)

 

“Ada was the youngest daughter of Dr. Samuel Osborne Habershon. She was brought up in a Christian home by believing, praying parents, and her whole life was devoted to God’s service. In 1901, she began writing poetry while ill and wrote Apart with Him. She met Dwight Moody andIra Sankey when they visited London in 1884, and visited America at their invitation to deliver lectures on the Old Testament, which were later published. During the 1905 Torrey-Alexander Mission, Charles Alexander asked her to write some Gospel songs; within a year, she supplied him with 200.”
