Breathing Room, Leeana Tankersley
Motherhood is supposed to be a joyous journey of giggles, hugs, cuddles and memory making. We are supposed to have days filled with clean houses, dishes done, children who obey. Yet that is not how it turns out at all. No mother expects to find herself distraught over loads of laundry undone, or dirty dishes, or children running around....yet the truth of the matter is many of us have found ourselves in just that place. The place where we just want to hide in the furthest corner of our closet. Where we want calgon to take us far far away. Breathing room is a book that brings us back to a place of calm and relaxing. A place where we realize that we are not perfect, we do not always have it all together, and we are often our own worst enemy. Leeana has written a poignant book, a journey in her life, a walk in another's shoes. She has exposed her deepest feelings, her lowest valleys, her worst self-conversations. And in doing so she has offered hope, inspiration and encouragement. This story, this book, takes the reader to a place where they can see God's grace, love and mercy in action. Thanks to Revell for this review copy.
