Elisabeth Elliot (1926-2015)
I didn’t know her but I adored her heart.
Through her books, radio programs and daily devotions delivered to my email inbox she taught me about purposeful living and being a strong woman of integrity and godliness.
A quote by Elisabeth Elliot has encouraged me in this season of life while raising and homeschooling my children.
The routines of housework
and of mothering may be seen as a kind of death,
and it is appropriate
that they should be,
for they offer the chance,
day after day,
to lay down one’s life for others.
Elisabeth Elliot (née Howard; born December 21, 1926) died this morning (June 15, 2015) at the age of 88.
She was a beautiful woman of whom the world was not worthy.
