Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Genre(s): Self-Help, Nonfiction
Beloved speaker and radio host Hallie Lord shows how to use unexpected hardships and challenges to build a life that will make you more secure and grounded than ever before.
Hallie Lord understands the upheaval life can bring. From her parents’ divorce when she was a preteen to moving eleven times in fifteen years with her family, the radical changes she faced relentlessly pushed her toward fear and helplessness. Yet by digging into her faith and through much self-reflection, she realized that even though those challenges had left her a bit battered and bruised, they had also equipped her for any difficulty that may arise.
In Falling Home, she describes the four interconnected foundations that now give her strength and security during life’s upheavals:
committed, supportive friendships,
healthy family relationships,
an intimate love affair with God, and
a compassionate sense of self.
Inviting readers into her hard-fought journey, Lord shows them how they, too, can embrace whatever life brings their way. With lyrical prose and a tender, inviting voice, she shares how hurts and sacrifices are also the groundwork for creating a beautiful life that can catch them whenever they fall.
Falling Home is a self help book that many of us can relate to. Author Hallie Lord shares stories of her struggles and describes how she found the way to overcome them. She spreads love and hope and that is something I think we can all use during these times. She is able to highlight her struggles and what she has learned to speak and share her wisdom.
Her experiences and stories were interesting and readers will be able to be empathetic and show understanding because we can all relate to struggling. I think the book could have had a little more structure especially when it came to the timeline of her events, but it didn’t prevent me from enjoying the read.
I give Falling Home 4 stars. Hallie Lord was able to go through her experiences and struggles and use them to help motivate and inspire. Because this book is understandable and engaging I feel like Hallie’s whole message of hope and moving forward attitude will have an impact with readers.
