Review: Begin Again by:Leeana Tankersley

 Begin Again: The Brave Practice of Releasing Hurt and Receiving Rest
**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the publisher. All opinions are my own.

About the Book:
What happens when life begins to trip us up and failure starts creeping in? Many of us just keep on doing the same thing, hoping for different results. Some of us look for escape, to find a way out of the mess we feel that we've created. But neither enduring nor escaping is ultimately what we need.

The answer is to allow ourselves to begin again, every day, in every part of our lives. Through engaging, lyrical prose, Leeana Tankersley shows women how to forgive themselves, develop new and healthier patterns of living, and do away with resentment and regret. Her life-giving words will free women who are feeling stuck and allow them to clear out the debris to make room for what God wants to do in their lives. To begin again is to open the window, even a crack, to let the breeze of grace come in. It is a call to stop running from our fears. To take one small step toward becoming the brave women we were made to be.

My Review:
 As you grown older, you realize that your life has definitely not turned out like you had planned. If we are being honest with ourselves, I personally believe that a majority of us can say just that. God knows this for us way before we do and thats why we are to rely on Him during this difficult time of discovery and heartache but also a change in our direction or way of thinking.

 God teaches us to forgive way beyond our wildest expectations. Forgive Him, forgive others, and finally forgive ourselves. It is a struggle sometimes to even keep looking up to Him because we are so depressed over what could of been.

 The author takes us through her own journey and others' journey, as well. to a place of meeting Jesus in the middle and letting Him sort it all out. A great encouragement to women on this life's plane. Inspiring and helpful words that can teach us.
