From the back of the book.
This book is incredible. it tells the story of a girl named Chrissy, whose parents are pastors of the Tabernacle. it basically talks about her life’s ups and downs. I think this book is really relatable for anybody who grew up in church. She obviously centers on being a pastor kid, and how hard it is. The pressure they are in, and the fact that people sometimes forget that they are normal human’s whit same problems as anyone else, or same battles.
I’m not a Pastor kid and this book blew my mind. It’s really easy to follow. You see the many stages of the battles we all have in our minds.
Sometimes the biggest battles are fought in your mind. In this amazing true story of a girl who literally grew up in church you will find that everyone no matter their status or appearance goes through the same battles. Life can be hard and if you don’t fortify your mind you’re in for a lot of self-destruction. There is no bigger enemy than yourself.
