This is an excellent biography of Ann Judson, Adoniram Judson's wife. It was full of excerpts from letters and firsthand accounts, but it was also cohesively written. Ann's faith and endurance are truly inspiring and this is by far one of the most engaging biographies I have ever read.

My Heart in His Hands is a biography on Ann Judson, wife of Adoniram Judson one of the first four missionaries sent out by America. Ann and Adoniram left America in 1812 to evangelize to the heathen in Burma, a cruel, arrogant people. The history of this amazingly faithful couple is truly an example of God’s mercy and grace as He preserved Ann and Adoniram from succumbing to many a frightful trial and doubt.
Ann truly was, and always will be, a faithful follower of God. As she faced many a faith

This is a powerful biography that caused me to treasure Christ in a deeper way. He is worthy of giving up all.
Whenever I am tempted to feel sorry for myself, I think of Ann Judson. After reading her incredibly moving story, I began to realize just how much many women have suffered in order to help their husbands bring the gospel to distant lands. It's not only a beautiful story, but also a reality check that will hopefully spur each of it's readers on to cheerfully "take up your cross".
It is a Christian classic - - she was the first American woman to be a missionary.
Job was her husband's favorite book of the Bible - - very much like their life.
I really enjoy reading about the Judsons. Very inspiring lives. The Judsons, George Mueller and Keith Green are my favorite biographies to read!
