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.

As a family physician, I explore the HEART of HEALTH in my work, recreation, community, and through writing. My blog, Watercress Words, informs and inspires us to live in health. I believe we can turn our health challenges into healthy opportunities. When we do, we can share the HEART of health with our families, communities, and the world. Come explore and share with me.
