Revell Presents Breathing Room by Leeana Tankersley

Breathing Room by Leeana Tankersley

INVITATION TO BREATHE

Catastrophe or no catastrophe, if you are unhinged, disoriented, suffocating, or otherwise generally dragging, I’m inviting you to pull up a chair at this table . . .

Breathing Room is a beautiful release of self-condemnation, a discovery of the rest that comes when we offer ourselves some space to breathe. Vulnerable and winsome, Leeana Tankersley shows you how to stop beating yourself up, how to be radically on your own team, and how to truly experience grace. If you’ve been putting on a strong front and yet are secretly coming apart, you’ll find in these pages a trusted friend.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

Breathing Room is a really wonderful book for those who find themselves into so many things in life that you just don’t have time to breath! So many women do this, with being a wife, mom, working, volunteering at church and school, its very easy to put your name in too many pots and using up too much time , so that you have no time just for you! I like the way Ms. Tankersley leads us to let go of some of the unnecessary things on our schedule and having time to do things just for ourselves. And she tells it in such a way that you can understand easily what she is trying to teach! If you are one of these ladies, I would encourage you to pick up a copy of this book and read it, study it, and take the advise of this wonderful author!

I received this book from Revell to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55.

Endorsements

“Leeana says out loud the things we all feel, and she says it with grace and eloquence. I’m so thankful for her honesty and her wisdom. Reading these pages is like sitting with a friend, and that’s the best thing I can think of.”

Shauna Niequist, author of Bread & Wine

“A new lyrical voice in a crowded world, Tankersley tells a tale of hope, reality, and everything in between.”

Claire Díaz-Ortiz, author, speaker, and innovator at Twitter, Inc.

“In Breathing Room, Leeana Tankersley speaks the kind of soul language I’m always looking for but rarely find, the kind that comes from thoughtful silence, faithful waiting, and long, dark nights. She refuses to reach for easy answers, instead leading the reader on a journey of accepting our own humanity–to turn toward Christ and grieve fully, celebrate wildly, breathe deeply in his presence–and begin again. Quite simply, this is one of the most thoughtful books I’ve read all year.”

Emily P. Freeman, author of A Million Little Ways
