She was kidnapped then beaten and raped for 9 months by a psychotic wannabe religious zealot and his brainwashed wife.
This woman is my hero.
She turned all of her darkness into light. I don't think I have ever read a story that has made me cry so much. She has more strength than most people have in a freaking lifetime. I don't know how she did it. I will forever be floored and her story will forever be my inspiration.
Do not wait, do not pass go. Just go out and read her story.

"Where There's Hope: Healing, Moving Forward, and Never Giving Up" by Elizabeth Smart was an
assortment of stories/interviews with people who like Elizabeth Smart have managed to survive a horrific event. Very inspirational book filled with faith and grace. She is a remarkable young woman as are the people included in her book. It is an easy read and something you can read as chapters and walk away as each chapter is a stand alone.
I struggled with writing a review of this book because it is aimed at the general public as an audience.

Elizabeth Smart interweaves supportive statements, examples and instances fr ...more

I received this book from goodreads. Thank you for picking my name. I really enjoyed the first part of this book where Elizabeth Smart was telling her experience about being kidnapped and then her time after where she had to come to terms with finding forgiveness of her captives,. The rest of the book was about other people who has survived tragedys a nd had to come to terms with them and find their way to move forward .
"We all leave this earth. We all die, and we don't get to know what comes next. It takes a lot of courage just to live life."
In "My Story", Elizabeth Smart put into words the account of her kidnapping and captivity. This book doesn't rehash that experience, other than a few paragraphs here and there. Mostly, this book is about how Elizabeth Smart was able to keep her faith and heal from the trauma she experienced. In each section, Elizabeth explores a different aspect of her faith and how her ex ...more
