Five Fall Favorites // Missionary Biographies

Rebekah over at Read Another Page has been hosting a blog party. It's been great hearing of so many new book recommendations. I thought I would post my top five favorite missionary biographies. In no particular orders. 

In the Shadow of the Almighty

This book focuses on the life of missoinary Jim Elliot, who gave his life for the Auca people. 

Through Gates of Splendor

While the aforementioned book focuses on Jim Elliot, this book focuses on all the missionaries who died with Jim Elliot and their work with the Auca's. 

The Triumph of John and Betty Stam

This is the story of a missionary couple who gave their lives in China. 

Missionary Heroism

This book is a compilation of stories about missionaries.

Behind the Ranges

This is the story of another missionary who worked in China.

I hesitate to read any books about Jim Elliot just because it's a hard story! But thank you for sharing! Wasn't the book party fun??!!

Yes, the story about Jim Elliot is a hard story, but for me, also one of a challenge to press on.

Yes, it was very fun. =)

Craft : : Puzzle Hearts

(Sorry for the poor photo)
So here is a tutorial on how to make these cute puzzle hearts.
Materials *Puzzle with missing pieces *Hot glue gun *Heart template (For the heart template just draw a heart shape the size you want or trace around a heart)
Directions 1. Lay puzzle pieces around the outside edge of the heart template until they all lay nicely with no big gaps 2. Lay another layer of puzzle pieces on top and then glue those pieces on one by one 3. Lay two more layers on top and glue them on as before 4. Paint the heart the color that you want and glue a ribbon to the back...if you are giving it as a gift you can add a little gift tag
Helpful Hints Make sure before you start that nobody wants to put the puzzle together :D When you lay out the layers of puzzle pieces lay them on top of each brick style so that all the pieces are connected and it won't fall apart when you pick it up Have fun!! :D
Please comment and tell me if you try it out :D

Meditations // Jeremiah 1:6-8

"Then I said, 'Ah Lord God! Behold I do not know how to speak, for I am only a youth.' But the Lord said to me, 'Do not say "I am only a youth" for to all to whom I send you, you shall go, and whatever I command you, you shall speak. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you to deliver you,' declares the Lord." --Jeremiah 1:6-8 In this passage God commands Jeremiah to speak to the people on His behalf and what does Jeremiah do? "I do not know how to speak, for I am only a youth." This wasn't an easy task, nor would it be a fun task, or a task where the people would love him, it was a difficult, uncomfortable hard task. Jeremiah thought himself too young. Jeremiah didn't think that God could use him because of his age. But what does God say? That HE would be with Jeremiah, give him the words to say, and deliver him. God doesn't just command him to do something, he also gives us promises to go with that command.

How often are …
