Anna LeBaron grew up in a religious, polygamist cult. Before 12, she had experienced many middle-of-the-night, chaotic moves, inquiries by social services and law enforcement, had been dropped off in Mexico by her mother with strangers for a year, forced to sell rocks and slices of cake for money, dumpster dived for food and clothing, and a myriad of other incredibly oppressive and depressive things a child should not have to suffer. You can hear her story on this moving Feathers episode or in her fascinating memoir.
Incredibly, she escaped the cult, met Jesus, and has been on a healing journey since. As you might imagine, part of her journey included a time of depression. She shared with me a quote from Bob Hamp that helped her and has stuck with me since.
