{{Book Review}} Breathing Room: Letting Go So You Can Fully Live by Leeana Tankersley


Catastrophe or no catastrophe, if you are unhinged, disoriented, suffocating, or otherwise generally dragging, I'm inviting you to pull up a chair at this table . . .

Breathing Room is a beautiful release of self-condemnation, a discovery of the rest that comes when we offer ourselves some space to breathe. Vulnerable and winsome, Leeana Tankersley shows you how to stop beating yourself up, how to be radically on your own team, and how to truly experience grace. If you've been putting on a strong front and yet are secretly coming apart, you'll find in these pages a trusted friend.

*My Review*
Leeana, like so many of us, began to feel overwhelmed by life, & like so many of us, she figured she was struggling not because life is difficult but because she was personally failing in some way. She knows all too well what it means to bully yourself, to put yourself down for not being able to keep it all together, to compare yourself to others and to find yourself lacking. But she has also discovered that all of the hurt and hatred and pain all add up to a life of holding your breath. What if we could just exhale and let it all go?
"BREATHING ROOM" is such a beautiful release of self-condemnation and discovery of the rest that comes only when we give ourselves space to breathe. Tankersley draws her readers in through her shared experiences of perfectionism, jealousy, and striving. It shows us how to let go, how to be entirely on our own team, & how to experience the generous grace that Christ has offered to all of us.
I recommend this book to anyone who has been trying to do it all, who has been putting on a front and yet you are secretly struggling. You will find in BREATHING ROOM both a trusted friend and a generous Savior.
