Item Description...
Miss Carmichael was inspired to write this book by reflecting that most books of comfort for sick people are written by the well and so miss their mark.

Thus, from her own personal experiences she has gathered a priceless treasury of helpful thoughts for those who are ill. This is why it "speaks to our condition" and why I have sent it again and again to ones who are hurting. As pain is not always physical, it is a book for all who suffer.

More About Carmichael Amy

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Amy Carmichael (1867- 1951) was a Protestant Christian missionary in India, who opened an orphanage and founded a mission in Dohnavur. She was born in the small village of Millisle in Northern Ireland to devout Presbyterians, David and Catherine Carmichael and was the oldest of seven children. After her father's death, she was adopted and tutored by Robert Wilson, cofounder of the Keswick Convention. In many ways she was an unlikely candidate for missionary work. She suffered neuralgia, a disease of the nerves that made her whole body weak and achy and often put her in bed for weeks on end. It was at the Keswick Convention of 1887 that she heard Hudson Taylor speak about missionary life. Soon afterward, she became convinced of her calling to the same labour. Initially Amy travelled to Japan for fifteen months, but she later found her lifelong vocation in India. She was commissioned by the Church of England Zenana Missionary Society. Much of her work was with young ladies, some of whom were saved from forced prostitution. The organization she founded was known as the Dohnavur Fellowship. Dohnavur is situated in Tamil Nadu, just thirty miles from the southern tip of India. Under her loving guidance, the fellowship would become a place of sanctuary for more than one thousand children who would otherwise have faced a bleak future. In an effort to respect Indian culture, members of the organization wore Indian dress and the children were given Indian names. She herself dressed in Indian clothes, dyed her skin with coffee, and often travelled long distances on India's hot, dusty roads to save just one child from suffering. In 1931, Carmichael was badly injured in a fall, which left her bedridden much of the time until her death. Amy Carmichael died in India in 1951 at the age of 83. She asked that no stone be put over her grave; instead, the children she had cared for put a bird bath over it with the single inscription "Amma," which means mother in the Tamil. Amy Carmichael's work also extended to the printed page. She was a prolific writer, producing thirty-five published books including His Thoughts Said . . . His Father Said (1951), If (1953), and Edges of His Ways (1955). Best known, perhaps, is an early historical account, Things as They Are: Mission Work in Southern India (1903).

Amy Carmichael was born in 1867 and died in 1951.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Touched my heart like nothing else  May 19, 2005
I have been quite ill for several years, and have read many many christian books about illness, etc. Nothing, however, has touched my heart and encouraged my faithfulness like this little book. I cannot recommend it highly enough for anyone who is physically or emotionally struggling.
A treasure and a blessing for the hurting   Dec 11, 2004
If you or anyone you know have a debilitating condition (cancer, disability, lupus, ms, etc.), PLEASE get this book to them right away! The emotions that no one else understands will be mirrored back to them in a way that will challenge them to depend on God.

I've never heard a more realistic picture of suffering. This little book has had a profound influence on my life. Amy spoke encouraging words to me and expressed my deepest feelings in such a poetic way.

Amy Carmichael, a missionary to young girls in India, suffered a debilitating injury/ illness that confined her to bed. This book grew out of the pain, restless nights, struggles, and frustrations that ensued. She compiled the devotionals (written for the staff and children in her orphanage), correspondence, musings, and journal entries, and poems from that thorny period in the hopes that God would use them to minister to others in similar situations. In other words, she prayed that a rose-- this book-- would grow from the briar patch of her life.

As she experiences the ups and downs of attitude, faith, and energy, honest and poignant observations about the disheartening affects of pain are mixed with metaphors and excerpts of hymns that brightened her day. Each 1-2 page section can be read in any order depending on your current physical and mental state.

This is strong medicine-- meant to be taken in small doses. You will be touched.
