Some of my most cherished things are two postcards handwritten to me by Elisabeth Elliot with comforting words on them as I was carrying our last little baby girl, Rebecca now 17. Elisabeth told me God was already with me.
I was on bedrest with complications and a threat of premature delivery at 5 months; I was a bit frightened and apprehensive with something new to me at the time...a birth center delivery. Do you know Dr. Ron Paul would have delivered my baby girl if I were transported to the hospital?
Our baby girl was delivered at the birth center by a praying team of midwives, a robust nine pound healthy sweet baby girl!
Elisabeth Elliot would also later read a letter I wrote to her over the air, I cannot tell you what a blessing she was and still is to me. I'll never forget that morning putting my makeup on and out of the blue, I hear Elisabeth Elliot reading my letter over the radio... Sometimes we need things like that. Encouragement goes a long, long way.

Series: A Conversation with Elisabeth Elliot
Leslie Basham: Elisabeth Elliot says, “If a woman gets married she is going to marry . . .
Elisabeth Elliot: . . . sinful person. There isn’t anything else to marry. I say that to women all the time. You’ve got to remember, whomever you marry, he’s a sinner. There isn’t anything else to marry.
