What happened to Elisabeth Hasselbeck from “Survivor”?

Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who became known from being one of the contestants of the competitive reality TV show “Survivor”, was active in the entertainment industry from 2001 to 2015, when she decided to withdraw from public life to spend more time with her lovely husband and kids.

This one is *not* about gluten or my gut- It is about God and my heart. Decided on a cover with the help of the kids and sweet creative friends!!! I Have been blessed with a foreword written by the courageous and beautiful soul @candacecbure – I don’t deserve your words girl!!! And though it does not release officially until April- the Pre order this week startled me!!! And it feels a little scary to share so much (lessons learned the hard way/ big mistakes/ graceless moments ) – So: I pray for His courage to work through me. And- when that “who cares anyway/ what does my story matter!?!” moment… sneaks in- I pray for the confidence that glorifying Him ALWAYS matters. It matters to Him. If nothing else- writing this pointed my eyes to Him. Praying thanks to all those on the journey who taught me such lessons on mercy and pursuit and grit and grace!!! #pointofview #untilISeeitGODSwayImNotSeeingAtAll (photo credit: Wiff Harmer Photography – she makes me smile ) ??
