Ed Smart Bringing Elizabeth Home: A Journey of Faith and Hope

PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC Bringing Elizabeth Home: A Journey of Faith and Hope At 3:58 in the morning of June 5, 2002, Ed and Lois Smart awoke to the sound of their nine-year-old daughter Mary Katherines frightened voice. Shes gone. Elizabeth is gone. At first they thought she was having a bad dream about her older sister, but Mary Katherines seeming bad dream would quickly become their worst nightmare. Their daughter Elizabeth was gone.They were not sure why the media picked up on Elizabeths story, but after their daughter was kidnapped she became the whole worlds daughter. After nine months of a strange, hard, sometimes rewarding, but mostly painful journey, Elizabeth was miraculously returned to them. Just as millions throughout the world had grieved for her loss, now they celebrated her safe return.In Bringing Elizabeth Home, Ed and Lois share the pain of every parents worst fear: What would I do if my child was taken from me? They also share a story of great hope, strong faith, and trust in God. The Smart family had always been devoted to their Mormon faith, but through their terribly painful experience they gained a tremendous inner strength, which became the key to their survival. They write, Having our daughter back home, in our arms, is nothing short of a miracle. It is the ultimate proof that God answers prayers. Granted, sometimes the answer is not the one we pray for, but still it remains an answer. We feel truly blessed that He answered our prayers the way we had hoped for, although we realize, regretfully, that this is not always the outcome in kidnapping cases. We have met so many families with missing children and weve seen how deep their pain goes . . . But what we hope to convey through our journey of faith and hope is that with a strong belief in God, all things are possible. Miracles do happen.In the end, the Smarts story brings one point poignantly home--nothing is more important in this world than family. Not money. Not work. Not a fancy new car or an expensive, big house. Family, the prayers of so many friends and strangers, and trust in God are what got them through this experience--and having survived, they have no doubt that they can persevere in any situation as long as those three things are in their lives. Though their story is filled with many incredible twists and turns, they never lost focus on what was important: Bringing Elizabeth Home.

In the end, the Smarts story brings one point poignantly home--nothing is more important in this world than family. Not money. Not work. Not a fancy new car or an expensive, big house. Family, the prayers of so many friends and strangers, and trust in God are what got them through this experience--and having survived, they have no doubt that they can persevere in any situation as long as those three things are in their lives. Though their story is filled with many incredible twists and turns, they never lost focus on what was important: Bringing Elizabeth Home., This book is about a group of teenagers, who enjoyed life and the friendship that they had amongst each other. They shared, fun times, their loves and disappointments. For many of these teens, they were not out to find who they were, but they wanted to enjoy life in its fullness. They lived in a time when many of their classmates older brothers and even some sisters were going to war. The draft was something real and as they and their adventurous spirits. This same spirits is what fueled many of the antics they did. The name of the game was to have fun, in and out of school. At school, we believed you could have as much fun at school as could any where else. So often this fun ended up, in them getting into trouble, which in many cases, lead to detention after school and being grounded at home. Never once did they get expelled but they did get licks with the paddle by a teacher or the principle. These antics were often on the spur of the moment. Every once in a while, things did get planned, if they did it was going to be something big, like wrapping the police station. Most of the teens in these stories were 14 to 17 years of agenda they were as close as any family could be. They shared food, clothes, parents, carsand mostof all they shared the deepest feelings in their hearts. As they grew up, each married, and soon they found themselves losing that free spirit and the fun loving time they had in their lives. Those who are still alive sit around and remember the old times. Always talking about putting it on paper, but never finiding the time. I have learned that so much is lost by not taking the time to put it on paper. memories fail and people pass away. This is why the book Young Times has come about. So these time of a few fun loving teens won't be lost, and so people will know, to be young and have a fun loving sprit doesn't mean you have to be violent, distructive, or deadly. For those who buy this book and read about these teens, just remember the stories are true. Some things may have been left out accidentlly or may not be remembered exactly as some of the others would remember it, but they are true to the best of my knowledge. I hope you enjoy this book.
