Made for the Journey by Elisabeth Elliot

In 1952, Elisabeth Elliot stepped into the jungles of Ecuador to serve her first year as a missionary. This is her heartbreaking and inspirational story. Elisabeth literally gave up everything to follow God's calling for her life. Her main goal was to use her training and experience in languages to document the language of the Colorado Indians in order to provide them with Bibles they could understand. Elisabeth was away from her loved ones and living in a strange place with strange people. She didn't waver even throughout devastating circumstances.

It is hard to comprehend the immense hardships people like Elisabeth Elliot have to endure as they seek to completely trust and obey our God. A missionary's life is never easy, but it is always worth it. Elisabeth's story is one to inspire everyone. Her life never went as planned, but she kept going and kept serving. 

This book is one that can be read in one sitting. It's fascinating and heart wrenching and special. It's one that will always be relevant and helpful to its readers. Elisabeth Elliot will be remembered as a wonderful woman of God. Thank you to Revell for the chance to review this book! All of Elisabeth's other books are now on my TBR list. Thank you for inspiring many in your years of life, Mrs. Elliot.
