By Searching (Isobel Kuhn)
Isobel Miller gave up God for worldly pursuits. But as graduation approached and her engagement was broken, she questioned that decision. "If You will prove to me that You are, and if You will give me peace, I will give You my whole life." God heard Isobel's prayers and responded. Her search ended, and He gave her a whole new life of fruitful missionary service in China.

J.B. Phillips paraphrases Hebrews 6:1,3, "Let us not lay over and over again the foundation truths... no, if God allows, let us go on."

In 1928, Isobel traveled to China to serve among the Lisu people. The hallmark of her life was searching out the knowledge of an infinite God. This book is the story of the first 26 years of that life.
Isobel Kuhn and her husband John served as missionaries in south-west China. Ministering among the Lisu people, they continued the work begun by pioneer missionary, James Fraser. (Behind the Ranges: biography of J. O. Fraser of Lisuland, Southwest China) By Searching is Kuhn’s candid account of how she sought and found the Lord.

I've enjoyed all of her books so far. This would be a great read for anyone but espcially for a struggling college students or young adults. Anyone who is struggling with his or her faith can find hope and encouragement through the experiences of Isobel Kuhn.
