Have you ever wondered if God has a destiny for you?
For the longest time, Elizabeth Bristol ran from God—until, out of desperation, she caved. She found out she not only needed God but wanted Him. In what came as a total shock, she found peace, purpose, and incredible healing.
She can’t not share because in this crazy world, who couldn’t use a little more of all that?
There are stories in this book she wasn’t going to tell. Why did she? She had to share her indiscretions in order for people to see the power of redemption.
But the coolest thing about this book isn’t the miraculous story God made out of Elizabeth’s life, it’s that He wants to do the same for everyone else.
When you walk in your destiny, nothing can stop you from influencing your world.
How do you do that? Let this book show you.
Trigger Warnings: Profanity, Rape, Suicide, and Abuse
I met Elizabeth on one of her drives south. We became fast friends and worked together on several of Habitat’s builds. She always has a story or three and she’s not afraid to share the pain from her past with a level of honesty that takes guts.
Elizabeth Bristol uses candor, humor, and a conversational-style to tell her unconventional story: she was a young party girl addicted to travel, always seeking something bigger than herself until she realized the hole inside of her was God-sized. That’s when the self-proclaimed agnostic’s real struggles began.
This entertaining pilgrimage is full of quirky stories. It’s deeply personal, but resonates with familiar spiritual wonderings we can all identify with. The “aha” moments are simple yet profound, dished out appropriately in a way that makes me shake my head and smile.
