What do we do when those we love are no longer able to care for themselves? How are we to face the brokenness and suffering of those to whom we once looked for strength? Elisabeth Elliot wrestled with these difficult questions while watching the steady erosion of her mother's memory - an erosion that seemed to devour every strong and noble attribute that made her mother who she was. This book contains insights Elisabeth gained as she struggled to find perspective. Elisabeth Elliot is one of the most influential Christian women of our time. For a half century, her best selling books, timeless teachings and courageous faith have influenced believers and seekers of Jesus Christ throughout the world. She uses her experiences as a daughter, wife, mother, widow, and missionary to bring the message of Christ to countless women and men around the world. She is the best-selling author of more than twenty books including Passion and Purity, No Graven Image, Be Still My Soul, The Path of Loneliness, Secure in the Everlasting Arms, The Music of His Promises, and Keep a Quiet Heart. She and her husband, Lars Gren, live in Magnolia, Massachusetts. Elliot was born in Brussels, Belgium to a pair of missionaries, Philip and Katherine Howard. However, Elisabeth's time abroad didn't last long; her family moved back to Philadelphia. As Elisabeth grew up, missionaries were regularly visiting the Howard household, having a profound impact on Elisabeth's choice to attend Wheaton College, to study classical Greek so that she could work in the missions field as a Bible translator. There Elisabeth met Jim Elliot, who would become her first husband after the two had served independently as mission workers in Ecuador. Tragically, Jim was brutally murdered by the Aucan Indians-the very tribe Jim was trying to save. Instead of returning to the States, Elisabeth continued to commit her life to Christ and lived with the very tribe that had speared her husband to death for two years.
