Description
Smoke and Mirrors is the sobering account of LaKesha Boddy's membership in a cult. For 5 years in both Glendale and Peoria Arizona, a charismatic leader used biblical scriptures to seduce the author and his followers into blind obedience and servitude. While cut off from family and friends, LaKesha found herself residing in her vehicle to finance the vision of the "church." Ignoring red flags, her inner voice and God himself, the members of the ministry accepted abuse and humiliation under the guise of correction and love. A run in with the law, for falling asleep behind the wheel still hadn't awaken LaKesha from her slumber. After years of mental and physical exhaustion, LaKesha took one day off from service. While still before the Lord, she came to herself and knew it was time to leave. It would be a decade before LaKesha would find herself in the house of the Lord. After serving faithfully in her new house of worship a church leader's actions, triggered the memories she tried desperately to forget. No longer after, she found herself having no choice but to confront the cult practices that have fallen into the church. LaKesha's testimony will help you identify the atmospheres where deception and manipulation thrive. Smoke and Mirrors is the writing debut of Leadership expert, LaKesha Boddy.
