    1. I have been a fan of Patsy Clairmont, since hearing her on Focus on the Family years ago. I have read her previous books, NORMAL IS JUST A SETTING ON YOUR DRYER and GOD USES CRACKED POTS. It was awesome to learn more of her background in this book and see just what led to the agoraphobia she often talks about.This book is a memoir. Each of the sixteen chapters gives us a snapshot of a significant person in Patsy's life and how they shaped her character. There is nothing mean or hurtful in this b [...]

    2. I had the privilege of learning about Patsy Clairmont when I saw her at a Women of Faith conference a few years ago. What a fireball of wit and energy! She had me laughing while connecting real life stories to a great God. I even got the privilege to meet her in person and get her autograph. So, when this book showed up in my donations for a yard sale pile, I snagged it, eager to read it and learn more about her story. I was surprised to learn she was an agoraphobic struggling with fear and anxi [...]

    3. "I didn't realize the Lord would use my failures to teach me compassion for other strugglers, my fears to teach me about courage that goes beyond feelings, or my foibles to teach me of my limitations and his limitlessness. I viewed my agoraphobic years as wasted and forever lost, but God never wastes anything. Instead, he chooses to rebuild ruins."--p. 157I have always LOVED Patsy Clairmont. After listening to her famous message, "God Uses Cracked Pots", I have often repeated phrases from her me [...]

    4. This book is by one of the "Women of Faith" gals. I went to two of those conferences, and that was enough for me, but several of the speakers were hilarious and really inspirationalPatsy Clairmont was really goodis story of her life will probably make you realize your own life is amazingd might inspire you to achieve things you thought you couldn't. I definitely did not get in to this book for the religious aspectbut instead for the inspirational story part.d she's funny :))

    5. I liked this book. It was nothing like I thought it would be, but I liked it nonetheless. A very quick read, this book is an autobiography about Clairmont's life. I think the primary intended purpose was to demonstrate her struggles with agoraphobia, and God's help to emerge through these difficult times. However, I didn't feel her difficulty in the writing. To me, she seemed like any ordinary person who struggles. I enjoyed her writing style, and respect the way she came to trust in God and bec [...]

What a fireball of with and energy! She had me laughing while connecting real life stories to a great God. Love to read anything she writes.

    7. An enjoyable, easy, inspirational read. I would have likes it to be a little longer so as to have has the chance to go a little deeper. Her struggles were real, but her treatment of them were a little superficial.Enjoyed it though!

    8. It is in regards to her issues with fear - agoraphobic but as long as it took me to read it I finally finished it while riding on a plane home from TN and while I find it frightening to ride a plane on this particular trip - turbulence on all I was not afraid. POWERFUL and FRAGILE the mind!

    9. Bio/Rel/Insp. all wrapped up in one book! Patsy talks about growing up, how small she was & she eventually overcame her fears & phobias. It was a long journey but with God, nothing is impossible. Made me cry and think the best biography I have read over the past few years.

    10. This is an autobiography of Patsy Clairmont's life. I found this book to be inspirational. This lady dealt with alot of fears in her life that she eventually overcame. She is now a well known author and speaker for Women of Faith Conferences.

    11. That the Lord is full of irrepresible hope and love for us! Every chapter of this book spoke to me where I am at this time in my life.

    12. I liked it. I like chronological chapters in autobiographies as opposed to topical. She is a good writer-very funny at times.

    13. I loved this book. Patsy is one of my favorite humorous Christian authors. This is her life story and how God got her through her agoraphobia and turned her into a Women of Faith Ministry speaker.

    14. Patsy came to a point where fear had her in bed full time but God released her from that bondage one baby step at a time. This is a story of her life and a book you will not want to put down!

    15. It's amazing what people can overcome in life! Patsy Clarimont is an excellent example of this. She is also quite funny. This is a quick, easy read.
