The life of Jim Elliot

He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep
“He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep, in order to gain what he cannot lose.”

I stumbled on a quote today that struck me pretty good. So much so that it lead me to look into this man the quote came from. I certainly was not expecting to get lost in a heart racing story about this man, Jim Elliot, and the five men who lost their life in the jungles of Ecuador.

I would not do their story justice, so I just direct you to the unbelievable account of their life, which has left a mark on me, and surely thousands of others. (Obviously enough to get me dipping in ink and writing out quotes…just look past the 47 mistakes;)) The quote aboe will make all the more sense after you read.

Feeling a renewed conviction to dedicate more time to growing in my own faith….so that maybe one day I will have the conviction like Jim Elliot. Enough to be willing to die for it!

I know, deep thoughts for a Thursday…

Summer seems to be a pivotal changing point in people’s life. I high point and turning point of the year.

Each one has been drastically different for me. Growing up they seemed ages long, but since college they fly with flaming colors, and each has had its own tale to tell.

This summer, I know will have its own story. My main goal? To have this baby…. and then enjoy that baby with Gabe and my children. I think the rest of the adventures that will come will be side effects of this life event.

What about you? What do you hope your summer story will be?
