Devotedly ~ Book Review

I will never forget the first time, as a teenager, hearing about Jim Elloit. I wrote his quote

"He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose." in black Sharpie marker on the wall in my closet so that I would see it everyday. Then the books by his wife Elisabeth Elliot...Woah. 

When I saw this book written by their only child, Valerie Elliot Shepard, I knew that I needed to read it. Valerie takes the letters written between her parents, She so beautifully weaves these words together. The struggle, love, determination to seek the Lord first above all else...And how human they were. I also love that there are photographs sprinkled throughout the entire book. 

What an incredible pair these two were & still are...As their love story lives on in their pages to challenge us.

I received this book from Lifeway for my honest review.
