I brush lettered this free printable Elisabeth Elliot quote with my favorite vibrant pink liquid watercolor: “I have one desire now – to live a life of reckless abandon for the Lord.” Elisabeth Elliot.
Elisabeth Elliot was a model of exactly that – reckless abandon for the Lord. She lost her first husband, Jim, to a hostile tribe in Ecuador. They killed him when he was attempting to bring the gospel to them. Instead of becoming embittered, Elisabeth took her daughter to live among the very people who had killed Jim. Many later came to know Christ (including the one responsible for killing Jim Elliot).
Elisabeth died a little over a year ago after a faithful life of ministry and writing books. I love Elisabeth Elliot’s books, and have especially benefited from Passion and Purity and Let Me Be a Woman.
