CLC Publications Mimosa: A True Story

The child of an Indian village, from a Hindu family, heard one afternoon of a God who loved her, and she lived from then on under His influence. Read this remarkable story of the girl who was embraced by the love of God and overcame every kind of opposition and trouble.

One of the best little books I have ever read. The story is to the point and written in the exquisite and vivid Amy Carmichael style which allows you to "walk into the story" with your heart. There are so many lessons to be learned for Christians everywhere through the testimony of Mimosa.
We should never underestimate the power of God's Word and the transforming work of the Holy Spirit. We are prideful when we think that someone else's encounter with God is hanging on the line because of us. Get tissues!!

I would recommend this book for anyone who is struggling to remain faithful to God through trials and years of adversity. This true story about a Hindu child illustrates how responding to difficult situations with praise and trust brings one to greater faith and joy in the Lord.

This is one of my all time favorite biographies. It displays the power, glory and love of God in an incredible way. Amy Carmichael writes somewhat poetically rather than straight forward, but the story is told very powerfully.

The book is written in an almost poetic style, partly after the fashion of people in India. It tells the story of a girl who learns a very little about God, and clings to Him in faith for many years in the face of adversity and without the fellowship of other believers.
A great gift item, especially to those in need of encouragement.

What an incredible story of the awesome power of God working in an Indian womans's life despite adverse and seemingly impossible circumstances! Our God reigns! Nothing, absolutely nothing, is impossible to Him!! I read a borrowed copy from a friend and now must own a copy for myself... to read again!
