Ella is woman who has known more than her share of heartaches, rejections and disappointments. Growing up as the great-granddaughter of sharecroppers in Mississippi, she was used to moving. But abandonment and eviction by family members-that was something else. For many years, she searched for a place to finally put down roots-"where nobody could put me out." This is an account of that journey. Jean Robertson is an aspiring writer who has written over twenty articles for The Gospel Journal, a local Bay Area Christian newspaper. She is also the writer and editor of her church newsletter, NRS Views and News. Currently serving as the Ministry leader for Women of Purpose, the women's ministry at her church, she resides in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, with her husband.
