She was the proverbial good girl, obeying all the rules
and expectations of others—until she took control and
changed the rules.

Gaye was an optimistic college music major when she agreed to marry a senior music major after his graduation. She never expected that before their wedding, he would alter his career and toss her unprepared into the role of a minister’s wife at age eighteen. Yikes!

The people-pleaser in Gaye is compelled to stand by his side, even though it means living in a fishbowl where the expectations of others disrupt her sense of self. Gaye walks this path that isn’t hers for fifteen years before beginning to realize that only by reclaiming her identity can she unleash her inner power and become the unstoppable force she was meant to be.

In a relatable and moving account of overcoming obstacles, Gaye Kick provides an eye-opening peek into the ups and downs of a clergy wife who yearns to break free and find a spiritual path that resonates with her soul. Her story has inspired many seekers to examine and release beliefs that have hindered them from living the life they desire.

Releasing Religion is an honest, heartfelt memoir. If you like engaging narratives, funny self-reflection, and journeys of self-discovery,  then you’ll love this uplifting search for freedom and identity.
