Elizabeth was not aware that she had the right to use the word no', especially to adults and those who were older than she. She knew nothing about self worth or self esteem and, therefore, grew up void of any confidence in her own self and any real value equated to her personal worth. Experiencing the horror of rape, rejection and betrayal, she was physically abused and lied to by those whom she trusted the most. Everything around her represented negativity and failure. So many people let her down. Those who would normally be there to support and protect her had obviously abandoned her. Compromised Journey will anger you. It will encourage you and it will captivate you as you travel with the author through the pages of her book. Throughout her story, you will see the mighty hand of God protecting Elizabeth as she struggles through one catastrophe after another. Not until she reaches out to God from the realness of her very core, is she able to experience God's purpose for her life. "
