I decided to admit once and for all that I didn't know what I was doing, what I thought, what I believed, even sometimes if I truly believed. I would tell the truth: I wasn't like them; I didn't fit in. I wasn't a proper Christian. I didn't have it all together like they did. Why not, I figured' What in the world did I have to lose' _____ After twenty years of unbelief, estranged from her childhood faith and ultimately from God, Michelle DeRusha unexpectedly found herself wrestling hard with questions of spirituality' and deeply frustrated by the lack of clear answers. Until she realized that the questions themselves paved a way for faith. "Declaring my unbelief," writes DeRusha, "was the first step; declaring my unbelief allowed me to begin to seek authentically." Spiritual Misfit chronicles one woman's journey toward an understanding that belief and doubt can coexist. This poignant and startlingly candid memoir reveals how being honest about our questions, our fears, and our discomfort with black-and-white definitions of faith can move us toward an authentic and a deepening relationship with God.

Michelle DeRusha's memoir lives up to its title as the author tries to find her place in Christianity. She discusses her religious experiences as a child, and then her years of not believing. The book has a very uplifting message as she finds that she doesn't have to be perfect in order to have faith.
