"Excellent. I've been searching for a guide to Biblical womanhood, and I would definitely say this is the best one I've read recently. I would put it up with Elisabeth Elliot's "Let Me Be a Woman." Carolyn Mahaney has a simple, refined writing styl..." Read more of this review »

God's Wisdom for Little Boys by Jim George

Elisabeth Elliot
“It is in our acceptance of what is given that God gives Himself.”
Elisabeth Elliot, These Strange Ashes

Elisabeth Elliot
“Faith does not eliminate questions. But faith knows where to take them.”
Elisabeth Elliot, A Chance to Die: The Life and Legacy of Amy Carmichael

Elisabeth Elliot
“But the question to precede all others, which finally determines the course of our lives is What do I really want? Was it to love what God commands, in the words of the collect, and to desire what He promises? Did I want what I wanted, or did I want what He wanted, no matter what it might cost?”
Elisabeth Elliot, Passion and Purity: Learning to Bring Your Love Life Under Christ's Control

Elisabeth Elliot
“Often a Christian man or woman falls prey to that cruel and vexatious spirit, wondering how to find marriage, who, when, where? It is on God that we should wait, as a waiter waits--not for but on the customer--alert, watchful, attentive, with no agenda of his own, ready to do whatever is wanted. 'My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him.' (Ps. 62:5 KJV) In Him alone lie our security, our confidence, our trust. A spirit of restlessness and resistance can never wait, but one who believes he is loved with an everlasting love, and knows that underneath are the everlasting arms, will find strength and peace.”
Elisabeth Elliot, Quest for Love: True Stories of Passion and Purity

Elisabeth Elliot
“God is God. Because he is God, He is worthy of my trust and obedience. I will find rest nowhere but in His holy will that is unspeakably beyond my largest notions of what he is up to.”
Elisabeth Elliot
