Best-selling author Elizabeth Gilbert says she wasn't truly stirred by religion until she was 30 years old. While she attended Church growing up, it was a merely "a place you went to be reminded of your duties." Only when her life started to collapse, her marriage began crumbling and all of life's certainties disintegrated did she find a direct path to divinity. In the run-up to OWN's groundbreaking seven-part series Belief, Elizabeth shares the personal revelation that helped her fill what she calls an "eternal black hole of despair."
Tune in for the series premiere of Belief Sunday, October 18, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on OWN.
