really liked it
bookshelves: purity, dating

This book was alot different than I expected, but was good overall. Elliot teaches us principles on waiting on the Lord and trusting in His timing, His promises and His plan from a very "girly" perspective. She shares her own dating/waiting, "already-not-yet" story of her relationship with Jim Elliot.

The book is filled with stories, letters and her own personal journals. It's a fast, interesting and intriguing read-- and whoever reads this (well, girls mostly) will grow to really be encouraged and refreshed by their story.

This book reminded me of my God-given, God-ordained role as a "woman" (haha, sounds weird) and how I should embrace the time of my singlehood to grow in an ever-growing devotion to the Lord, a submission to His Lordship, His timing and His plans/purposes for my life-- and how that will ultimately manifest itself in other areas in my life (my future, my marriage, etc.)

An encouraging read. All girls should read it!
You will get owned. and humbled. but its good.
