    short & sweet

    It was a short read. I read it as I was travelling and it was a good way to pass the time in between waiting to switch bus rides. When I received it, it was much smaller than I expected. It was originally a gift but it felt too short of a read to gift to someone on its own so I kept it. Delivery was quick [5 business days to Canada] The book is sweet and speaks of Mimosa finding out about God's love as a child from Amy Carmichael and through this love/devotion being able to endure persecution, trials and afflictions as she refuses to partake in pagan worship of the gods of India. She also faces loss as she refuses to go to her nationw's gods for help in times of sickness. Its beautiful to see how even as she lacks biblical knowledge and understanding, God still leads her by His Holy Spirit in righteousness.

    I really liked two quotes from this book: (paraphrasing)

    "You have learned of Him through knowledge but I know Him through suffering"

    "God will lead you wonderfully, even in the small things He will lead you"

    It is worth reading.

    One of the best little books I have ever read. The story is to the point and written in the exquisite and vivid Amy Carmichael style which allows you to "walk into the story" with your heart. There are so many lessons to be learned for Christians everywhere through the testimony of Mimosa.

    We should never underestimate the power of God's Word and the transforming work of the Holy Spirit. We are prideful when we think that someone else's encounter with God is hanging on the line because of us. Get tissues!!

    I would recommend this book for anyone who is struggling to remain faithful to God through trials and years of adversity. This true story about a Hindu child illustrates how responding to difficult situations with praise and trust brings one to greater faith and joy in the Lord.

    This is one of my all time favorite biographies. It displays the power, glory and love of God in an incredible way. Amy Carmichael writes somewhat poetically rather than straight forward, but the story is told very powerfully.

    The book is written in an almost poetic style, partly after the fashion of people in India. It tells the story of a girl who learns a very little about God, and clings to Him in faith for many years in the face of adversity and without the fellowship of other believers.

    A great gift item, especially to those in need of encouragement.
