On the surface Lulu Auger's life looked perfect. She was married to a successful restauranteur, lived in a beautiful house and hobnobbed with the rich and famous. However, inside she was lost and searching for answers. She turned to psychic Jeane Dixon and other New Age practices for relief, but found none until she met Jesus Christ on the very day she planned to take her own life. This powerful memoir will remind you of God's great faithfulness and desire to save.
Lulu Auger's life is what fairy tales are made of: a poor farm girl from rural Minnesota goes to Washington, D.C., to seek her fortune. On the way, she meets a dashing prince who sweeps her into marriage. Wealth and fame eventually follow as they open a successful restaurant visited regularly by the who's-who of the nation's capitol.
Yet any glamour in this fairy tale existence was short-lived. Her prince turned into a domineering and disloyal husband. Success didn't fulfill her and money couldn't buy her happiness. Desperate for acceptance, belonging, and love, Lulu sought comfort in the arms of the New Age occult--a decision she almost paid for with her life.
Heartening yet hopeful, the saga of Lulu's life, her search for fulfillment, and her ultimate decision to accept Christ will captivate readers and become a source of encouragement and hope for anyone walking through the dark valleys of life.
Lulu Auger and her husband created an institution, Blackie's House of Beef, which was the longest privately owned restaurant in the nation's capital, until she decided to close it at the end of 2005 in order to focus on the hotel business. She was married to "Blackie" for 59 years before his death in 2004 and has three grown children and 10 grandchildren. Lulu stays closely involved in the family business while being part of various Christian ministries such as GOD TV and Bill Johnson Ministries. She lives in Washington, D.C.
