When we were on fire ~ Addie Zierman

This is the true story of Addie Zierman and how she started as a Christian and then life got in the way.  Addie talks of in the 1990's and how she was all in for Jesus and talks about all the details of her years of how she served for GOD.  As the years go on she tells of how she lost the drive to keep living for GOD and how she over came the feelings.  This is a very easy read and I feel it reaches out to the 90's generation teenager.  If you did not live in the 90's then you will not be as touched as those of us that did. Doesn't mean you will not enjoy the book, it means you may not get as much feeling from her story as those that have lived through those years.

Addie goes through the Meet you at the pole campaign, WWJD bracelets, true love waits rings and many more.  I lived through these years and was touched by how true her feeling were.  When Addie goes through depression and tells how she felt so alone with no church members to help, even though she tries to get them to reach out to her.  Her story is heart felt and if you have ever felt these feelings, this story will make you realize at the time you feel alone but you really are not alone.
