Do you mean to say you have no food for tomorrow?" the Egyptian man sputtered. "Well, yes," Lillian replied. The man exclaimed, "How awful! Will you be able to sleep tonight?" One of the orphan girls laughed out loud and said, "Why, Mama never has any food for tomorrow, and she never loses sleep over it!" "When Lillian Trasher founded Egypt's first orphanage, others though Do you mean to say you have no food for tomorrow?" the Egyptian man sputtered. "Well, yes," Lillian replied. The man exclaimed, "How awful! Will you be able to sleep tonight?" One of the orphan girls laughed out loud and said, "Why, Mama never has any food for tomorrow, and she never loses sleep over it!" "When Lillian Trasher founded Egypt's first orphanage, others thought that a lone American woman with no means of support would surely be killed or starve to death. But Lillian - certain of God's guidance - stood by her earlier promise to Him, 'If ever I can do anything for You, just let me know - and I'll do it.' In the midst of poverty, war, and deadly epidemics, Lillian faced each day with a heart of trust, modeling the life she hoped her children would someday live in their own homes. During fifty tumultuous years, the Mother of the Nile cared for thousands of desperate children, with unwavering faith that God does indeed look after the orphans.

    A great biography that encouraged me to walk by faith. The book goes perfectly with our ancient egypt homeschool curriculum this semester. I plan to have my 10 year read the book next week.

    I found the premise of this biography intriguing. All in all -- What a story of faith and miracles! Powerful. At first I found Lillian's story a little too much. I couldn't believe after praying over getting and married and believing it God's will that she'd then decide it was actually God's will to drop the wedding 2 weeks out. It made me question whether she really loved the guy. She didn't seem that upset. It made me wonder if it was one of those life choices where she would have been blessed I found the premise of this biography intriguing. All in all -- What a story of faith and miracles! Powerful.

But we will never know as we can only know the path she did take. The path she took was a powerful story and you can see how happy and blessed she was. Definitely an uplifting read overall and one I needed after the last book I read.

    Moving biography of a woman who followed God’s call despite the cost, learned to trust him in the very smallest (and biggest) of things, and gave her life serving the most vulnerable members of society in Egypt.

    I still really liked this book, but I didn’t connect with it as much as I did with the Isobel Kuhn biography. Still a beautiful story and message!

    Some friends in Kansas put this in our hands for the drive home from Colorado. We started reading it aloud in the car and couldn't put it down. The hard part was trying to listen to my wife read it through her constantly breaking voice (it's an emotional read!). It's the story of a woman who gave her life to an orphanage in Egypt - and all the ways God provides. Reminds of George Meuller's story.

"not long before she was hospitalized, a news reporter asked Lillian,....'what is the secret of your missionary success? What is the greatest thing you ever did?' 'There isn't any secret,' Lilian answered. 'I just stayed! I did not quit. I stayed with the work God gave me to do.'" Great book to grab and read aloud to the children. I would have rated it a 5/5, but the writing is so-so at best. But the story is worth it!

    Inspiring book from equally inspiring authors of the inspiring series "Christian Heroes: Then & Now". Reading this book at a younger age introduced my younger self to the concept of missions, which eventually lead to a calling to the mission field. Needless to say, this book holds a spot in my life and relationship with Christ. At an objective angle, this book has a way of keeping you hooked until the end, only strengthened by the knowledge that it relates the life of a real human being.

Overall, I'd say this was one of the most memorable books of the series, important highlights including; miracles still occur to this day, taking risks for God is worth the eternal rewards, and that faith can move the hardest stone not of a mountain but of human hearts. Really makes the reader think deeply about meaning in life and how temporary everything really is.

    I enjoyed this biography on Lillian Thrasher. I love this series and have read 15+ titles in the Christian Heroes: Then & Now set. I will say this book focused a lot on the financial aspect of the work (as one might expect in a “faith mission”), but did not emphasize as much about Thrasher’s personal faith. I would have like to have known more about her prayer life/life in the Spirit and less about the specific costs of food staples in Egypt in 1920.

Still, I feel that this book was a good introduction to Sister Thrasher’s fifty years of living by faith. I did not know much about faith missions (apart from George Müller’s work), and this book has stirred me to dig further. The final quotation on the last page was worth the whole journey through 74 years of her life. Be blessed. When asked the secret of her missionary success, Thrasher replied, “I just stayed! I did not quit. I stayed with the work God gave me to do.”

    This is an amazing story of what God can do when we surrender our lives completely to Him. I'd never heard of Lillian Trasher but she lived a life surrendered to God and saw many miracles of deliverance in her ministry to the orphans and widows of Egypt. I am looking forward to meeting her in Heaven! The answers to her prayers of faith are inspiring. Rebecca Gallagher did a wonderful job of narrating this story, which made for an interesting listening experience.

    This was such an amazing book. Lillian's faith is so inspiring and seeing God care and provide for her was so encouraging, but also how he also loved the orphans and the widow of Egypt by provided such a remarkable woman to be there for them was so uplifting and inspiring. I highly recommend. It is a very quick read as it is written for younger people, but is packed full of nuggets for older people too. This was such an amazing book.

    After the first few chapters I saw Lillian as impulsive and one that changes courses quickly. Yet the more I read the more and more I was amazed at her ability to trust God. Her faith that God will provide for the orphaned was amazing. The dedication she spent in Egypt saving thousands of lives was amazing to read about. What a legacy and example to follow. When God calls it might seem impulsive to others yet God rarely works in frames built by man's rational. After the first few chapters I saw Lillian as impulsive and one that changes courses quickly.

    I had never heard of Lillian Trasher until I saw this book in my church library. I was going to study Egypt with the kids, so I borrowed it. If you have never read this book, go read it. Lillian is a female George Mueller. She cared for orphans and widows in Egypt for 50 years. The stories about how God had answered prayer are wonderful to hear and are a good reminder constantly be praying.

    Wow, the kids and I loved this book! We listened to the audiobook, and found it fascinating and so moving as we read about God's love and miraculous work on behalf of the poor and orphaned in Egypt. I can't believe I'd never heard of Lillian Trasher. Highly recommended! Wow, the kids and I loved this book!

    Incredible story! I had never heard of her before. Led to some great conversations with my daughter about the power of prayer. I only thought the particular book in the series had a lot of choppy sentences that were not written very well.

    I read an audio book version of this one. I love that these books are available on so many faithful, godly people throughout history, some that I have never known about! It was wonderful to hear Lillian's story serving the precious Muslim children and communities in Egypt. I read an audio book version of this one.

    Loved this book! I listened to the audiobook and it was a fun, fast listen. The accounts of bubonic plague and cholera were especially encouraging in our present moment. I really appreciated Lillian's dependence on the Lord and the way the book detailed how He led her step by step. Loved this book! I listened to the audiobook and it was a fun, fast listen.

    I almost DNF'ed this book at the beginning and I'm SO glad I held out. This was an AMAZING biography of a woman who put her faith in Christ and patiently waited for Him to show His faithfulness in providing for orphans and widows. I am so excited to read more of these biographies to my girls!!! I almost DNF'ed this book at the beginning and I'm SO glad I held out.

    Inspiring story of an amazing woman who followed God's call for her life. I had never heard of Lillian Trasher before reading this book, but I will never forget! Note: I researched and found that the Lillian Trasher Orphanage still exists today in Assiut, Egypt. What a legacy that Lillian left behind; she truly was an impactful worker for her Lord during her time on earth. Inspiring story of an amazing woman who followed God's call for her life.

    Lilian Thrasher reminded me a lot of Amy Carmichael. She was so good at trusting God and doing what he wanted her to do even if it seemed impossible. It was sweet to see how God always provided for her and her needs. This was an amazing story!
