I read Freefall to Fly by Rebekah Lyons this past weekend in two sittings. And more than my normal feelings of I love this book! or I am learning a lot! I thought: This is perfect timing. I need this message right now. I can’t relate to the being-a-mom aspect, or the living-in-NYC part, but the message of “living a life of meaning” resonated with me in a big OH YES.
I’m not going to summarize it here. Or delve into all my take-aways. Maybe someday, when they take more shape. But I totally recommend that you read it. And I’m going to share one of my favorite quotes with you.
“I’ve found community with people who are living out the calling God has breathed into their hearts… Their treasure isn’t found merely when they use their talents but rather when their talents are deployed to redeem the brokenness in their midst.” (p. 112)
