This book takes you through a nostalgic stroll of days gone by. The milkman actually put the milk right into your refrigerator and people did not need to lock their doors. It was a simpler time, a slower time and a safer time. This is the autobiography of a teenage girl who rebelled against those times. She wanted more.

Told in sincere truth but not maudlin. This author has lived a lot in her years and is an inspiration. Love her Women of Faith stuff!

A rebellious teenager. A High School dropout. A bridge at seventeen and a mother at twenty. Soon she became a terrified victim of agoraphobia--a prisoner shackled by fear in her own home. Lost in the shadowy darkness of depression, there was little hope for this woman to reemerge into the light, much less excel at life.

But reemerge she did. Excel she has. And how! Standing five feet even, popular speaker, author and humorist Patsy Clairmont laughingly says, "I grew up a little". But this petitie body houses a gigantic, courageous heart. And this amazing little woman evokes gales of laughter and joy from hundreds of thousands of woman every year.

How did she do it? This delightfully written autobiography reveals Patsy's greatest struggles, her biggest failures, and the secret to her ultimate triumphs.

An incredible story of overwhelming fear meeting overcoming faith...this is a story of a little lady who found hope in a big God.

NEED ENCOURAGEMENT?? READ THIS BOOK!

An easy read, a short-and-sweet autobiography of such a neat lady. If you are hungry for more after reading this one I suggest any of her other books or catching her at a Women of Faith conference. She really is a little spark plug and that comes thru in this book. Part of me wishes she would have gone into some more detail about certain events in her life, but the way it is written really lets every woman relate to her struggles.

This book tells Patsy's struggles with agoraphobia. She becomes so entrenched as a young woman in this condition that she can not even leave her home and she is 20 years old with a baby. She inserts humor throughout the book to ease you over the rough spots in her life. She attributes her growing faith in God and the love of her new Christian friends to her success in overcoming this albatross.
