The Road Less Traveled: A Story of Love, Pain, Hope and Everything In Between

Genre: Christian, Non Fiction

Book Summary

Life doesn't always work out the way we planned. Things happen that we have no control over, and circumstances seem overwhelming. I never thought I'd marry an abusive man-a man whose mental demons turned him into two different people. I never imagined being a widow at the age of thirty-eight. I never dreamed that one decision could so profoundly change my life and my viewpoint of mental illness. I didn't know how much I still had to learn about myself. Through these circumstances, I now know more about who God is. I also know who he is not. I know more about who I am now, and I know who I will not be anymore. I have always believed in my head God could work everything out for good and that He loved me-now I know in my heart. Head knowledge and heart knowledge is completely different. I invite you to read these pages with an open mind and heart. Allow our story to shed light in dark places. Freedom is within these pages-the freedom to be yourself, to be loved for who you are, and to bring your hurts into the light of God's love where he heals all things. Remember, love is the greatest of all things and it does conquer all. Love has already won.

About the Author

Hello. My name is Elizabeth Billingsley. I am an RN by day and a writer by night. I enjoy a good book, a good movie, travel, time with friends and family and I adore cats.

I wrote the book The Road Less Traveled: A Story of Love, Pain Hope and Everything In Between to give hope and help to people who are loving someone with a mental illness. My late husband was very mentally ill and committed suicide in 2014. Since the, I have learned much about myself, God and his illness. I have also learned what it is to come out of an abusive relationship.

I hope my story will bring encouragment and a way out to anyone who needs to read my God-given words. There is hope after abuse.There is hope for a loved who is mentally ill. Love has already won!

I also ventured into fiction with my 2nd novel, The Great Journey: A Story of Lorolaen, an Allegor.
I wanted to tell a fantasy story with the timeless theme of redemptive love.

I plan to write a poetry book and a follow up to my first book as well as continue to blog on my website.
