Book Of The Week – Girl At The End Of The World

Girl At The End Of The World

Growing up in a cult is no laughing matter –
But Elizabeth Esther infuses experiences about being raised as
The granddaughter of a fundamentalist cult leader –
Her eventual escape from her family and the cult – and
The lasting impact it has had on her today – with
Enough wit and humor to make a tragic experience sparkle.

Don’t miss this thought-provoking, heartbreaking yet humorous book!

Inspire Me Monday

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!
