I realized that the deepest spiritual lessons are not learned by His letting us have our way in the end, but by His making us wait, bearing with us in love and patience until we are able to honestly to pray what He taught His disciples to pray: Thy will be done. Elisabeth Elliot

I absolutely love this book. The gospel is presented from all the angles as the only hope for both children and parents. Excellent.

Have read this book once a year for about 10 yrs now (2014).

Grace is outrageous and scandalous when God, the only Holy One, calls, forgives, and welcomes sinners like us into His family. When two sinners welcome each other into more sinning... that is something else.

El verbo leer, como el verbo amar y el verbo soñar, no soporta ‘el modo imperativo’. Yo siempre les aconsejé a mis estudiantes que si un libro los aburre lo dejen; que no lo lean porque es famoso, que no lean un libro porque es moderno, que no lean un libro porque es antiguo. La lectura debe ser una de las formas de la felicidad y no se puede obligar a nadie a ser feliz.


The verb reading, like the verb to love and the verb dreaming, doesn't bear the imperative mode. I always advised to my students that if a book bores them leave it; That they don't read it because it's famous, that they don't read a book because it's modern, that they don't read a book because it's antique. The reading should be one of the ways of happiness and nobody can be obliged to be happy.

Note to self: There should always be an Elizabeth Elliot's book on my nightstand. Her words are always timely and encouraging. I am so grateful for her writings.
