Cheryl Abram was at the end of her rope: her life was falling apart on every level and she had “succeeded” in making herself unworthy, incomplete and separate. Then, one day this practicing Christian took a “leap of doubt” and fired God, or at least the God she had created.
Cheryl’s outward circumstances did not miraculously improve—this is not a fairy-tale story of allowing abundance into her life. Rather, as she puts it: I’m no longer afraid, anxious or expectant. It’s still about me, but the “me” is not the “me” that I thought it was. It’s not a little limited human being that was born and will die. I am not that. As a human being, I can see that I am connected to everything around me. I am a whole part of the tapestry of this world. We are all here for and as each other. To read how that came about and what it means in an everyday life for Cheryl and the implications for you and me, dive into the pages of this book.
A last word from Cheryl: “I’ve just added a little sexy, brown-sugary southern Louisiana sweetness to the enlightenment pool.”
Cheryl Abram is a mother of four living in Northern Virginia. She is aggressively sarcastic, whimsical, and always wondering, “Why does my back hurt?” She is an author, blogger, public speaker and is currently working toward an MBA with an emphasis in naps. Her website is www.CherylAbram.com.
“Firing God is a story of transcending spiritual consumerism (of life-long shopping for the ‘right’ church and the ‘right’ set of beliefs) to finding the church within; a story of embodying the Ordinary Perfection of the Present; a story of fearless liberation from dependence on a cultural narrative; a story of apostatic self-re-creation in the image of What Eternally Is. Firing God is a story of letting go of stories we tell ourselves and learning to just live.” —Pavel Somov, PhD, author of Present Perfect and The Lotus Effect
“Cheryl Abram—currently facing debt, foreclosure, a divorce, and the displacement of her children—has written a book as timeless as her childhood in Pecan Grove and as relevant as what's happening this moment in your own life. At the end of the book, Abram is still facing debt, foreclosure, divorce, and the displacement of her children. Yet something has shifted. How Cheryl Abram writes about that shift is what makes this one of the most important books in the spirituality genre in the last twenty years. It is likely that upon finishing this book you'll take a deep breath, relieved that you don't have to improve yourself or become a better person, because now you've seen something else, something wholly different, and it's that seeing that matters.” —Jerry Katz, Nonduality.com
