Begin Again by Leeana Tankersley - REVIEWED

About the Book:
Always we begin again."--St. Benedict

What do we do when we feel stuck, restless, cornered in our own lives? 
We can shut down. Or we can begin again.

To begin again is to open the window, even an inch, to let the breeze of grace come in. It is a call to open our hands when all we want to do is clench our fists.

Join Leeana Tankersley as she shares a journey of beginning again--in her relationships, in her faith practices, and with herself. Her small, daily shifts dramatically influenced her larger ways of doing and being, allowing her to trade trying for trust, striving for surrender. If you've been feeling stuck, Leeana's life-giving words will show you how to forgive yourself, develop new and healthier patterns of living, and do away with resentment and regret. 

My Thoughts:

I don't exaggerate when I tell you that this book has changed my life.  This book has come to me during a "begin again" season of my life, and it has been the most brutal, challenging, dark, confusing  time in all of my life.  But this book, it has been like talking with a good friend who knows exactly what I'm going through.  

I'm thankful for real live friends who I can share this book with.  Honestly, I've sent photos of the cover to countless friends.  I've underlined and highlighted passages, and am now going through a second time and writing out passages that have spoken powerfully to to me.  This book contains powerful, personal, hard truths about the choice that lies before each of us with every breath we start in that moment and begin again.

I am grateful beyond words for this book and the chance to read it, ingest it and share it.  I cannot recommend this highly enough!  Bless you Leeana Tankersley for writing this book!!
