In addition to the difficult adjustments all missionaries face in a new culture, women serving in the Muslim world often have other challenges: new roles and identities quite different from their old lives. In an effort to support and encourage women entering or already on the mission field, Through Her Eyes shares the personal experiences of two dozen women as they reveal the nuances of their everyday lives as missionaries in a foreign culture. Some are single, many are married, and a number of them have children, but all provide a candid look at issues associated with living cross-culturally: dealing with loneliness, learning a new language, helping children adjust to the new culture, maintaining healthy marriages, and balancing ministry and family roles. With this book, author Marti Smith offers an honest and insightful look at the challenges of being a woman in missions, providing much-needed encouragement from those who have stepped out in faith and found that God is indeed enough to meet all their needs.

Women must try to do things as men have tried. When they fail, their failure must be a challenge to others. Letter to her husband George P. Putnam, on the eve of her last flight.

Very good, very useful. I finished it, then went back to the start to read it again. It has a very specific audience, but if that is you, this will be helpful.

Reviewed by Heather Merrill: If you are a western woman planning to live in a remote Muslim culture or are already there, take this incredible opportunity to learn from many women who have gone before you. This book is chock-full of rich personal experiences, wise advice and practical tips from women choosing to adopt a local lifestyle and language. It's a resource that can be read several ways...pick a topic, read it from cover to cover or follow each woman through different aspects of her life. Either way, you'll gain insight from the cross-cultural ups, downs, struggles and success of their lives. There are no black and white answers, and this book doesn't try to provide them. It's simply hearing from real people talking about life, children, marriage, singleness, adjustment, perseverance, handling pressure and more.

I gained a lot from these diverse and inspiring stories of ex-pat women working in Muslim countries. Each chapter is a new woman with a new story, and each has a lesson that I personally was able to apply to my own over-sees experience. Highly recommended!
