Amy Carmichael was often quoted to have said, "You can give without loving, but you cannot love without giving." She exemplified that generous gift of love through her courageous work as a missionary in India for 55 years.
When she died in 1951, Amy asked that no stone be put over her grave at Dohnavur. Instead the children she cared for put a bird bath over it with the inscription "Ammai", meaning "true mother" in Tamil.
Serena decided to use the bird bath as the focal point of her project on Amy Carmichael for the SDHL Biography Fair this year.
Serena received many compliments for her very original and creative display this year. With over 30 biography projects to peruse, she enjoyed another great evening of sharing and learning with her homeschool friends!
