Mary Elliott was adopted and raised by two wonderful parents. She was raised in northern Illinois and took over the family farm at age 21 when her father passed away. For many years she was involved in the rodeo circuit. She is currently a divorced mother of two grown children, Brent and KC
"Mary Elliott has written a book of encouraging counsel to struggling women from one who has been there. She offers a personal perspective thats generously sprinkled with Scripture and tender references to the many facets of our loving God and Redeemer. Her insight comes from painful experiences that drove her to the steadfast, unfailing love of her Savior, the source of all things. She urges wounded souls, both married and single, to embrace forgiveness and to serve others from the heart." Marilyn Gregory, former assistant manager with LifeWay Christian Stores and author of the novel Warming Trends.

Mary Elliott explores the unrelenting love of God for his people as described by Isaiah in the 54th chapter of his writing. Elliott draws a parallel of the weary, defeated, children of Israel who felt they had been forgotten with individuals today who may feel those same thoughts of being passed over by God.
In a beautiful way Elliott helps the reader grasp the concept that the heavenly Father is looking for a passionate, loving, relationship with his children. She offers hope to those who fell abandoned, the frail, and the disheartened. She leads the reader to an understanding of God unfailing love, forgiveness, and faithfulness.
I found the "Prayer Nuggets" to be powerful examples of worship and intimacy with the father. The format of the book includes a page for notes or journal entries at the end of each chapter. These personal entries can become important reminders of an important phase of your spiritual journey. An interactive study guide is included for adaptation in small group learning sessions or for individual study.
"Living Isaiah 54" presents a verse by verse study of an often overlooked Biblical principal. The book is filled with insight from the heart of one who has experienced the feeling of abandonment of which she writes. The personal lessons Mary speaks of have been assimilated with life changing results in her life, providing her with the opportunity to counsel with others who are looking for this same passionate, loving relationship, between God and his sons and daughters.
"Living Isaiah 54" introduces an important concept for anyone wanting to discover the many faceted expressions of an intimate relationship with God
