One was the greatest rock band of all time, another was a misunderstood poet and Christian convert, and the latter is called, “America’s Pastor.” The Beatles, Bob Dylan, and Billy Graham were the three forces of artistic and spiritual expression in Archer’s childhood, and the trio of figures in her father’s conversion to Christianity and life’s work.

A tidy and sweeping story of a girl growing up all over the world, traveling as part of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. I connected with her feelings of praying and witnessing to the lost.

A friend of a friend wrote this memoir and it is a great read about her life and growing up.
I love stories of people coming to faith and how it impacts them. I love that her family didn't kick out all 'secular' influences while working for Billy Graham.
This book would especially be good for those who struggle with anxiety or grew up moving a lot.
I am excited to get to meet the author because the book does leave me with some questions!

This memoire is an incredibly refreshing and insightful read for those of us who are afraid of change. Archer opens the door into her own personal and unique journey through childhood while simultaneously compelling her readers to challenge the comfort of their complacent definitions of the word "home."
