Weekend Words from Amy Carmichael

 

 

you cannot love without giving. Amy Carmichael

 

Amy Carmichael (1867-1951) was an Irish woman who moved to India to serve God.

Her work there involved rescuing young girls  forced into prostitution, even though doing so put her  at risk of arrest and imprisonment. She established an orphanage for them.

Her health declined in her later years, and she became essentially bedridden; but she continued to direct the mission she founded and wrote prolifically.

Weekend words is a regular feature of watercress words. At the end of the work week we take a break from exploring strictly medical topics to read words of faith, hope and love from the Bible and other carefully selected sources.

I am a family physician who loves to write about the HEART of HEALTH. On my blog, Watercress Words, I inform and inspire us in healthy living. My ideas come from my training, experiences, medical practice, personal life, and medicine in the media. There's always something new and interesting to explore in the world of health and medicine.
