An Inspiration Without End!

"Bringing Elizabeth Home" was an inspirational story of how a family was able to end up making the best out of a situation, even when it was one of the toughest decisions the parents (Lois and Ed Smart) have ever had to make. Elizabeth was kidnapped on June 5, 2002 but with their willingness to stay true to their beliefs, through prayer, faith, and love, they were blessed to have Elizabeth Smart returned. The family's dedication in searching for Elizabeth was unwaivering, with their faith put into God's hands. Elizabeth herself said, "You have to live life every day knowing how precious God's gifts are." This means to never take anything for granted and always be grateful for what you alredy have. It was inspiring to know that a girl just like me, my same age, had to go through all of that horror. With a bit more detail on the kidnapping, this book would have been "that" much harder to put down. I recommend everyone to read this book to inspire them to live every day to its fullest and never let your faith unwaiver. Anyone who does not read this book would surely be missing out!

As a person who was in attendance at the White Houses Conference for Missing and Exploited Children in October of 2002 I was rather disturbed by the lie the Smarts told implying they had met with President Bush on that day. Perhaps Bush brushed by them and said 'God Bless you,' but I know for a fact they did not meet with him. This book implied that they met with him and it was because of them the National Amber Alert was put into place. This is a total lie, there are many other parents who lost children and many children who died to make the Child Protection Act a reality. It was not all because the Smarts were in attendance and it makes me wonder if they lied about that what else they are hiding. Hmmmmmmmm??????

    Bringing Elizabeth Home: A Journey of Faith and Hope

    This book really made me sick to my stomach. I suppose if you are a Mormon and wish to pad Ed and Lois' growing bank account buy this book otherwise stay away. This is way less about Elizabeth Smart and more about converting people to the LDS church. YUCK!!!
