I can confidently say that “Get Your Life Back” by John Eldredge was the most nourishing and impactful book I’ve read this year. There are far too many reasons to get into why…so I’ll let the sketchnotes that follow take care of that (with credit to our daughter Ella for her artistic prowess in creating these sketchnotes, pulling from the many highlights and notes I’ve marked in the book).
I discovered John Eldredge, and the wide range of his (and his team’s) work over at Wild at Heart, at a critical time when I needed it most. My soul was frayed around the edges, I was captive to the false self which was keeping me from the joy and freedom that God had always intended for me.
John’s “Pause” app, and the many podcasts and content on the Wild at Heart app, are now in heavy rotation as part of my daily soul awakening and restoration. I highly recommend “Get Your Life Back” — I know my copy will continue to be a constant companion, especially when I need a reminder of how to live freely and lightly.
