Book Review – Falling Free

It’s taken me a while to finish this book, but it was so good. The author writes about when God asked them to do what seems almost unthinkable in today’s society. Her husband had a great job, they were living their dream in the middle of “God’s country”, and everything seemed perfect. But then God asked them to move, away from what they thought they wanted, and to give up their money and “stuff” to live in the city among those who weren’t very well off. They learned to think less of themselves and more than others. They took in people who were in and out of jail, and help strangers on the street. She challenges Christians to take a look at what God really wants us to do with the resources given to us. She says she is constantly reminded that God loves everyone, and sometimes He gives us things for the sole purpose of allowing us to pass them on to someone else. I found this book made some excellent points and encouraged me to look for ways to give to others even when I don’t think I have enough to do so.

I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
