Buchrückseite

Emily Wierenga left home at age eighteen with no intention of ever returning.
Broken down by organized religion, a childhood battle with anorexia, and her parents' rigidity, she set out to find God somewhere else--anywhere else. Her travels took her across three continents in buses, cars, and planes, across mountains and over deep blue seas.
What she hadn't realized was that her faith was waiting for her the whole time--in the place she least expected it.
Poignant and passionate, "Atlas Girl" is a deeply personal story of the yearning we all share to be truly known, entirely forgiven, and utterly loved.

"Emily shares the unexpected beauty God has created in her broken places as he's made her heart whole again, and how he can do the same for you."--Holley Gerth, bestselling author of "You're Already Amazing"
"Her honesty is raw, real. Her faith is hard-won. And when it finally pours out, her love--oh, her love soars off the page and makes a nest in our hearts. Brilliant and beautiful."
--Liz Curtis Higgs, bestselling author of "Bad Girls of the Bible"
"This isn't just a book, this is a journey. Of grief and wonder, loss and gain. Emily tells a world-spanning story that this world needs!"--Jon Acuff, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Start"
"I felt like she was giving me an atlas of my own, asking me real, important questions about my own walk through life. Her story about loss, life, and love is worth its telling."--Tsh Oxenreider, author of "Notes from a Blue Bike"

HASH(0x9387cf3c) von 5 Sternen Coming Home. 1. Juli 2014
Von ChooseWisely - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Every single one of us has a story to tell about how we became who we are and who shaped our lives. Emily T. Wierenga tells her story in her new book Atlas Girl. Emily shares her childhood, family, friendships, and travel in this interesting yet melancholy memoir. While it has not been my favorite read this year, I found this book thoughtful and honest. For more on Emily, I highly encourage you to check out her blog at emilywierenga.com.

In Atlas Girl, Emily Wierenga recalls the details in her life, moments far more intriguing and adventurous than most of us have experienced. Emily spent childhood years in Brazzaville, Congo. In later years she traveled as a missionary to the Middle East and even lived awhile in Korea. She traveled to Japan, China, and Thailand with her husband Trent. But, it was in coming home to care for her "Mum," that Emily is able to find home and healing.

What I loved about this book was Emily's raw and bold storytelling. She includes moments and thoughts I would have been tempted to omit. I also loved the quotes she used before each chapter to set the tone of the pages to come. I did find the book long, somber, and sometimes difficult to get through. Because it is helpful to read about another's struggle to get through your own, I recommend this book to anyone who has struggled with parents, relationships, and overcoming personal demons.

I was given a complimentary copy of this book by its publisher in exchange for an honest review.

HASH(0x9387cf90) von 5 Sternen Decent until one point 2. Juli 2014
Von mjkt - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
"Atlas Girl, Finding Home In the Last Place I Thought To Look" by Emily T. Wierenga is a memoir of the author's life. The author gives a very detailed memoir of her life from her childhood all the way to her married life. The author writes about her struggle with her faith and anorexia. I was impressed on how well, in words, she was able to write her feelings of what has happened in life to the point I almost forgot I was reading a non-fiction book. She finds the help she has always needed while she helps cares for her mom as her mom has a brain tumor. All good until the point I am going to talk about now. The main reason I am on the fence of recommending this book. In the chapter she goes into detail about her honeymoon not the so much about the location but what happened that night. I am sorry but I don't need to read her details about it. Call me a prude but I don't care I just don't want to read that. From that point on I had a hard time reading the book. So no recommendation from me.

I was given this book from Baker Publishing for my honest review.

HASH(0x9368f3e4) von 5 Sternen A Spiritual Memoir 17. Juni 2014
Von Linda Chontos - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Emily Wierenga has the heart of a poet. You will know it as you are carried along by her graceful prose and by the way your heart dips and soars. She tells her story, in her memoir Atlas Girl, with honesty and deep humility.

It is the story of a little girl so hungry for love she nearly died from starvation in a desperate attempt to find it. It was a battle she would fight for many years.

As a young woman, she continued to run after love, searching in relationships, Christian service, and far-away places. Her journey took her across continents and ended in the last place she expected - home. Home - to the family she had run away from and to the God whose love she finally understood.

It is a story of redemption, forgiveness, grace and unconditional love. It is our story. Us, with all our faults and failures, finding a way back to God and to the people closest to our hearts.

HASH(0x9368f7b0) von 5 Sternen A life laid bare 28. Juli 2014
Von Joy Lenton - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Some journeys we make are literally life changing and transforming. Here, Emily shares her story with searing honesty and openness, laying bare her family skeletons as they rattle in chains about her feet. The reader journeys with her in distance, space and time, seeing a culture shift here and an emotional shaking up there. We are drawn in to the narrative with her own deeply poetic voice, with the addition of snippets from her mother's journalling to offer a fresh perspective on events.

There is a skipping about in chronological sequence and a tandem skipping toward a greater knowing and self-awareness in this most candid of memoirs. This author's writing is a feast for the senses, even as she literally starves herself of food and the loving acceptance of God she so desires and craves. Until her eyes are finally open to His continual loving presence in her life.

And once she truly sees how beloved she really is (and always has been), her vision widens to include her husband, family and friends. There is a return to the bosom of her loved ones and to her heavenly Father's arms. You will find pain etched across these pages. You will find trauma and tension too. But most of all you will find the Love we are all seeking for and which is ever close at hand.

So take your time, travel with Emily to distant places, watch how understanding and compassion grow and how her heart unfurls in the sun of God's love. Observe her distress and woundedness and see how personally unique yet universal they are, and how you too can be set free to believe you are unconditionally loved by the One who flung stars into space and holds you in His tender embrace.

HASH(0x9368f894) von 5 Sternen Okay Read 3. Juli 2014
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Written by: Emily T. Wierenga
Published by: BakerBooks

I enjoy reading memoirs by various people, detailing various lives, and that is why I decided to read and review this book.

Atlas Girl tells the story of a hurting girl who starved herself to deal with that pain, the woman she became, and the trials that she faced.

Who the book is for:

Those who enjoy memoirs.

What I liked:

The story is written in an interesting way.

The author is open and honest about a lot of things.

What I didn’t like:

I felt like the author never fully shared her feelings toward her parents or the forgiveness that took place toward them, like she hinted at it a lot but didn’t really tell the dirty parts. I would have appreciated more about that, because she made it all seem too simple – and I know that a hurtful relationship between parent and child is never simple.

My conclusion:

Overall, this was an okay book.

I give Atlas Girl 3 out of 5 stars.

I received this book free to review from the publisher. The opinions expressed in this review are my true thoughts and feeling regarding this book. I am disclosing this information in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
