Philip Henry’s advice to his daughter: “If you would keep warm in this cold season (January, 1692), take these four directions:

1. Get into the sun; under his blessed beams there are warmth and comfort.

2. Go near the fire. “Is not my word like a fire?” How many cheering passages are there!

3. Keep in motion and action – stirring up the grace and gift of God that is in you.

4. Seek Christian communion. “How can one be warm alone?”
