Though None Go With Me--Review

      Though None Go with Me begins at the turn of the twentieth century and spans World War I and II, The Great Depression and considerable personal loss. Elisabeth Grace LeRoy wants what all of us want—to love and be loved. When she discovers her deepest longings can only be met by our Lord, she makes a commitment that will shape the rest of her life—to make her life an experiment in obedience to Christ, regardless of the cost.

      As a wife, I learned from Elisabeth to cherish each moment with my husband, even in suffering. As a mother, I related to how she taught her children to love God and how she never stopped loving them and praying for them. I joyfully shared her love story and cried through every loss with her, amazed at her strength. It was hard for me not to pray for her as I read through the novel. I carried the book with me everywhere and read it while I waited for my kids or grandkids.

     The story of Elisabeth's extravagant faith was made into a Hallmark channel movie. Like other books by Jerry Jenkins, it is heart-moving and life changing. Though None Go With Me is one of my favorite books and I've chosen to publish this review for a second time. It is available in paperback, Kindle, audio and DVD here.

Sue, I agree that this is one of Jerry Jenkins' best. I read it years ago. I think I have the first print, as the copyright is 2002. I have to say the story had a great deal of impact on me. Would my faith be strong enough to make a commitment like Elizabeth?

Correction! The copyright date is 2000 and it's a hardback. The jacket cover has an image of an autumn leaf on what looks like a stream or puddle of water.

Sounds like a great book to have on hand for my upcoming "rest." I'm heading over to Amazon.com now.

Thank you, Peggy, for your comments. I had the same question as you about my faith after I read the book. Elisabeth inspired me to a new standard. :)

Thank you for your comment, Beth. I was thinking of purchasing the DVD. Mabye we could watch it together while you're recuperating.

I absolutely LOVE this book! The Lord used it to comfort, encourage, and even somewhat guide/inspire me during a rough time for my family!

Thank you for your comments, Miss Katie. I love this book too and it inspired me to a greater faith.
