Tug of War: Choosing Between Zion and Babylon (Bookshelf eBook)
Before we were born, we had a choice to make—a choice between happiness and misery. "But the war continues. We're still tugged towards Zion on the one hand ... and Babylon on the other." In Tug of War, Time Out for Women presenter Mary Ellen Edmunds discusses the differences between Zion and Babylon and why we can't "camp out" somewhere between the two. Our choices, including the seemingly small ones we make every day, have consequences that can lead us toward Zion: a place for the pure in heart, or Babylon: the antithesis of Zion.

I LOVE Mary Ellen Edmunds (MEE) I love hearing her speak! I love reading her books! This book is actually taken from one of her presentations at Time Out For Women. Here on earth we really only have 2 choices... Babylon OR Zion It is that simple...not easy...but simple. Filled with great stories this book helps us remember that it all comes down to our "agency" and the "desires of our hearts." Perfect little book for anyone.
