    No Graven Image by Elisabeth Elliot
    The fictional story of a young single woman missionary who is given the enormous task of starting a work among the Quichuas of the high Andes. As she begins her life as a missionary, she quickly learns that she is supposed to project an image of herself as a successful, spiritual missionary. Then something happens that shatters that image and she learns to put no created image, no matter how "spiritual", in the place of God.

    The 1599 Geneva Bible

    By Searching: My Journey Through Doubt Into Faith
    In this autobiography, Isobel Kuhn documents a journey of faith that will give every hungry soul a vision for the life that God offers. Although she walked this journey almost a century ago, her story of struggle and growth is written with a simplicity and clarity that is timeless.

    Thoughts Concerning the King by Elizabeth Prentiss
    Originally published in 1890, these selections from Elizabeth Prentiss' private papers represent the cream of her thoughts and relationship with the Lord. While simply a collection of quotes and poetry, the depth and insight of these quotations make this book a treasure indeed.

Here are a few interesting links I’ve discovered in the past week:

1. My brother’s car shows up briefly in the show “Storm Chasers” on the Discovery channel. Watch the video clip here and see my brothers’ photos from that day here.

2. Life of the Soul - a poem.

3. Check out this month’s issue of Challenging Femininity!

4. Listen to “Ladylike Dignity” – a short message from Leslie Ludy.
