Frances Ridley Havergal was a 19th century English religious poet and hymn writer. Havergal wrote Little Pillows a short book of children's stories for bedtime. She then decided to write a book for morning. In the beginning of this book she wrote: But in the morning we want something to arouse us, and to help us to go brightly and bravely through the day. So here are Morning Bells to waken up the little hearts, and to remind them that we must t only rest in Jesus, but walk in Him. If the motto of Little Pillows might be Come to Jesus, the motto of Morning Bells might be 'Follow Jesus.'
