it was amazing

This book caught me from the introduction, I found myself sharing pictures of quotes. It is a much-needed book, a combination of recovery and Christianity, Leeana Tankersley has reached out to a population that is often ignored. Most Christian living books offer helpful advice, yet many come from a perspective of having it all together. This book is different in the fact that it approaches things from a recovery standpoint. What I mean by recovery isn’t just a recovery from addictions, although it may help with that, but a recovery from the times that life has sapped you of everything you have to give and you simply have nothing left. This book is for those that have been there and need to understand that life goes on and it gets better. This book is for those people who feel like they are the only ones who have ever felt THIS way. She talks about coming apart and how hard it is, and the questions we may have about ourselves and our faith as we go through this struggle. This is not a typical book about rest, or even about falling apart or getting yourself together. This is a refreshing view of doing life while giving yourself grace, taking responsibility and giving yourself permission to be human and have feelings that might not line up with everyone else’s view of reality.

This is the perfect book for that person who feels like they just don’t know how to go on, or they don’t understand how they got in this mess to begin with. She gives you practical steps and principals for processing things and for reclaiming your life.
