S5ep23: Amy Carmichael

Co-hosts Mike Nawrocki and Sarah Humphrey talk this week with author Hunter Beless about her new book, Amy Carmichael: The Brown-Eyed Girl Who Learned to Pray.

At a time when being a single female missionary was extremely costly, Amy Carmichael spent her life sharing Christ’s love with hundreds of women and children in Asia. Along the way, she adapted to fit into cultures very different from her own, learned to depend on God in prayer, and became a mother to many children who had been sold, kidnapped, outcast, or abandoned.

Her inspiring resolve to follow Christ and her sincere commitment to his word make her a great role model for young children and will enthuse them about the great things they can do for God too. This beautiful hardback book features beautiful illustrations and extra facts in the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos. 

Hunter and her husband, Brooks, have four amazing kiddos who love learning and who memorize Scripture way faster than their mama! When they’re not reading, seeing, saying, or singing the Bible, you can find the Beless family camping, riding bikes, or snuggling up with a good book. You can find her on Instagram or on the Journeywomen Podcast.
