Elizabeth traveled the globe looking for God.
She just didn't know it at the time.
She needed healing from brokenness and clarity for ponderings. She craved fulfillment, but most of all, she just wanted to be happy.
At twenty-six she had peered inside a smoking volcano, patted a silverback gorilla in the jungle, and slept under the African skies. Not long after that she'd sailed off to the Carribbean seas and then moved from Cape Cod to Alaska. Along the way, Elizabeth found the adventure she was looking for.
It was more than she'd imagined.
God was more than she'd imagined.
He was way cooler than anyone said.
And more colorful.
There is so much more beyond what we can see.
There is so much right in front of our eyes!
This discussion is real and raw and so full of joy, but there are tears too.
Someone needs to hear this.
