Great book written by Elisabeth Elliot to her daughter. Chapters are short and topics are varied leading one from a personal relationship with Christ thru life experiences as her daughter was anticipating marriage.
I'd say this book was amazing, but it was written by Elisabeth Elliot, so that is kinda obvious. The book consists of many letters written from Mrs. Elliot to her daughter containing everything she wanted her daughter to know before she got married. The letters are brief, which makes it easy to read a few minutes each day, and the topics are well chosen.
One of Elisabeth Elliot's most famous quotes is from this book, but most of us have not read the whole quote. She says, "We are called to be women. The fact that I am a woman does not make me a different kind of Christian, but the fact that I am a Christian does make me a different kind of woman. For I have accepted God's idea of me, and my whole life is an offering back to Him of all that I am and all that He wants me to be."
Through her lifelong study of the Bible and using her own personal experiences as a single woman, a married woman, and a widow, she gives advice to women about womanhood, love, marriage, serving God, and many other things. I really enjoyed this book and I learned a lot from her gentle and wise words. I will be reading this again and then I will have my daughters read it when they get a little older. I wish I'd had this book 20 years ago!
This books is wonderful for any women. You may have a hard time with it if you are not a Christian. If you are a Christian it will really help you understand yourself and the ones you love more and threw God's eyes. I really enjoyed it and only posted it so someone else could enjoy it too. I hope this book will bless your life and touch you like it has for me and my household.
