Editorial Reviews

Review

Elizabeth Bristol uses candor, humor, and a conversational-style to tell her unconventional story: she was a young party girl addicted to travel, always seeking something bigger than herself until she realized the hole inside of her was God-sized. That's when the self-proclaimed agnostic's real struggles began.
 -Holly Lorincz, Bestselling Author of Crown Heights 

I met Elizabeth on one of her drives south. We became fast friends and worked together on several of Habitat's builds. She always has a story or three and she's not afraid to share the pain from her past with a level of honesty that takes guts.
 -Linda C. Fuller, Co-Founder of Habitat for Humanity International 

This entertaining pilgrimage is full of quirky stories. It's deeply personal, but resonates with familiar spiritual wonderings we can all identify with. The "aha" moments are simple yet profound, dished out appropriately in a way that makes me shake my head and smile.
 -Chip MacGregor, MacGregor Literary Inc. 

Mary Me: One Woman's Incredible Adventure with God by Elizabeth B. Bristol is a non-fiction memoir that follows the author as she lays bare her own path to God. Bristol begins with a genuine, bonafide adventure, traipsing across continents with a group of fellow travelers looking for absolutely everything and nothing at all. As Bristol immerses herself in a nomadic African existence, she begins to hear God as he speaks to her with protective messages that save her life several times. On her stateside return, she continues to bounce around without much thought, and even when she decides she wants to walk in the light, it always seems like a bad day to be a good girl, until finally . . . "I'm looking for a church . . ."
 
That wasn't exactly the end of the story and is actually where Mary Me truly begins, at least in the context of Elizabeth B. Bristol vocalizing a commitment that is not usually considered an easy one to make. As an outsider looking into Bristol's life, not the Big Guy Upstairs--it's the conversational narrative style that makes the memoir so engaging. Bristol is the type of person who invites readers to hang out. She's funny and adventurous; she's authentic. She's real. She colors outside the lines and is upfront about it not being as easy as people make it out to be, a "fisher of men", something clarified as an entirely different style of discipleship a bit down the line. At the same time, she makes some incredibly heartbreaking revelations that take courage to share. This is an excellent book and I'm so glad to have come across it.
-Reviewed By Asher Syed for Readers' Favorite 

Mary Me: One Woman's Incredible Adventure with God by Elizabeth B. Bristol takes readers through her spiritual quest, which she terms as weird because she did not fit into any church with her perception of God. She shares her experiences and stories through this memoir and shows what exactly took her closer to God and her unique adventures with Him. The memoir gives readers different ways of looking at God and His role in their lives. The author studied chakras, walked labyrinths, searched for a sweat lodge, made pilgrimages to Jim Morrison's grave, Loch Ness, and the Shrine of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The author's words put God in a different light than what He is usually perceived to be. God is cool, and He is packaged in another way. He is gentle, never hurried, always present, and not judgmental or mean, but He is the ultimate friend one seeks.
 
Mary Me is all about finding the meaning and purpose of life, healing, redemption, and achieving incredible peace after hanging out with God. The author's different style of living, not fitting into any organized religion, and finally understanding the mysterious ways of God make this book interesting to read. Elizabeth B. Bristol is honest and straightforward while sharing her story about what made her take the spiritual path and use it differently. She shares her moments of frustration, challenges, adventure, toxic behavior and lifestyle unapologetically, while giving readers hope to make positive changes when they are facing adversities in their lives. I found the book engaging and the author's honesty is heartwarming. Her writing style is simple and neat, making the story tangible to readers and thereby making it easy to connect. I found myself looking at God in a different way after reading this book. The author made it so simple and uncomplicated.

From the Author

ELIZABETH B. BRISTOL received a counseling degree from Mars Hill Graduate School in Seattle, then studied at Jerusalem University College. As a missionary, she found purpose for her wanderlust serving with Living Bread International Church in Jericho where they fed people, hitchhiked through the West Bank, and spent a night each week on top of the Mount of Temptation fasting and praying. With Iris Ministries in Mozambique, she saw miracles and healings on a regular basis even though she often wondered, Will I live through this? She has driven across the United States forty-eight times to work as a camp counselor, a keynote speaker, and to throw on a hoop skirt and dance the Virginia Reel at a Civil War reenactment. Today she lives on the Oregon Coast with her dog, Malachi. You can see pictures of the stories in this book and join her spiritual adventure team on her website at elizabethbbristol.com.
