Item description for I Grew Up Little: Finding Hope in a Big God by Patsy Clairmont...
Overview Clairmont reveals how she was transformed from a troubled teenager and an agoraphobic recluse to a confident public speaker--with God's help.
A rebellious teenager Patsy became a high school dropout, a bride at 17, and a parent at 20. Soon she became a terrified vicitim of agoraphobia and became a prisoner in her own home. Lost in the shadowy darkness of depression, there was little hope for this woman to reemerge into the light, much less excel at life. But reemerge she did. Excel she has. And how
Standing five feet even, popular speaker, author, and humorist Patsy Clairmont laughingly says, "I grew up little," But this petite body houses a gigantic, courageous heart. And this amazing "little" woman evokes gales of laughter and joy from hundreds of thousands of women every year as she literally dominates the massive stages of Women of Faith(R) conferences.

gives hope and inspiration Oct 2, 2007
If you come to this book looking for some kind of structured plan of how Patsy worked through her agoraphobia years you are not going to find it. I understand the want for this being a recovering agoraphobic myself and seeking in the past anything that even held the word agoraphobia and hoping it had the "fix". She actually does give the answer to agoraphobia, but it's not an "easy" one and you will miss so much more in this book if that is all you are looking for. Read deeper and you will find hope and inspiration. You will learn to trust more deeply and lean on God through all things. She shows her spunky side that we all know and love, but she also shows a different side as she talks about areas of pain in her life. I just finished it and am going to read it again since I find things after a second reading that I may have missed through the first one...I can't wait.
LITTLE woman with BIG message Aug 6, 2007
I met Patsy last year (2006) at the Women of Faith conference and later bought all books available by her! She knows what it's like to hurt and be fearful big time--yet she knows how to take care of those feelings! A most wonderful person and author.
Growing up Little, but finding a big God Jan 19, 2007
Patsy has such a way with words that you could "hear her speak" through her book. I only wish she had focused more on the "how" she overcame the agoraphobia rather than so much history related to her family. But I loved it nonetheless and have already recommended it to others.
Not what I expected........ Apr 13, 2006
Althought I did enjoy this book, it had so little to do with agoraphobia. Each chapter tells of a different person in her life. Her mother, father, aunts and so on. There was only like 2 chapters that I felt touched on the agoraphobia and then it was like she simply overcame it overnight. I gave it 4 stars because I do love the stories of her Maw Maw etc., but if you are looking for something specifically on agoraphobia, I think you might be disappointed.

This book was a good read. However, I expected to learn more about Ms. Clairmont's agoraphobia. That was the reason I had bought the book. Still, if you enjoy biographies, this one is fun to read.
