Have you bought the lie? Many of us do. We measure our worth by what others think of us. We compare and strive, existing mostly for the approval of You are free. Pressure rises, anxiety creeps in and we hustle to keep up. Jesus whispers, I gave my life to set you free. I gave you purpose. I called you to live in freedom in that purpose. Yet we still hobble through life, afraid to. We continue to grasp for the approval of anyone that will offer it: whether strangers, friends, or community.
Freedom is for everyone who wants it—the lost, the wounded, and those weary from all of the striving. You are the church, the people of God. You were meant to be free.

Rating details. More filters. Sort order. Zondervan is a quality publisher, and I usually enjoy books from them. I can get down with that, but the book still left me, unfortunately, cold. There are a few reasons for that. So what is it? Beats me. I found myself glossing over passages of this book and not really getting personally invested in it. It was a chore to finish. Maybe I should have taken the questions at the end of each chapter more seriously, You are free I may have gotten more out of the book. View 1 comment. I love books.
I love the smell of books. I love the de of books. I love reading, period. As a result, I believe in the sanctity of books, and I would not dare write in, highlight, or dog ear a book. Not even if my worst enemy lent me their favorite book and my worst passive-aggressive tendencies showed themselves would I dare crack the spine of a book.
But I wrote in this book. I highlighted the ink right off the s of this book. I read and reread and read again the words in this book.
Ma I love books. Maybe it's the fact that I have been struggling with anxiety and panic attacks for the past few months. Maybe it's the fact that this book came to me at the right time in my life.
You are free the fact that I've learned to be kinder to myself makes me able to be kinder to others and to appreciate their endeavors and their work more than I have in the past. Or maybe, this was just an amazing book for people struggling to let go of their anxiety, their fear, their inability to believe they are loved and accepted. This is not a cheesy memoir for people who like to keep score. This is not a book that makes me feel left out of a special club, as though my lack of goodness or perfection or inability to understand every part of the Bible make me unable to be accepted.
This is just a book written by a woman who has had the same fears, the same struggles, the same longings that I've had. And knowing that other people have walked through my darkness has set me free. If you don't recognize that song, think Shrek and the dance party featuring Donkey at the mic that comes at the end. I did not hang off the side of my porch shouting "I'm the king of the world" at the top of my lungs when I finished reading this book. Instead, I slowly turned the last. I delicately closed the book. I contemplated. I confessed. I asked for forgiveness and love and healing.
You are free I whispered to myself, "I can be free. View all 3 comments. Not quite a successful mix of an inspirational tome and a memoir, but certainly not a bad book. While the scripture study and references were often first-rate the author's repeat mentions about some parts of her life living with her family in a Manhattan high-rise apartment, seemingly constant national or international jet-setting travel, etc.
This is the kind of book You are free want to read slowly and let the words pour into your heart. I can't wait to read it again. I love that you don't necessarily have to read this from front to back. You can pick a chapter that meets you where you are and start there. Great book! Feb 05, Nikki Kamp rated it it was amazing. Rebekah Lyons is so courageous and honest. I am so thankful she wrote about mental health struggles. This book was a beautiful one for anyone who struggles to stop performing for God.
Perfect timing in my life and I loved it. I read this book as part of a Bible study group at work this year, and I was extremely disappointed in it. While Lyons' message freedom from earthly sin and self-doubt is a much-needed one for myself and many, her execution of that message is severely disted and limited.
The book lacks a strong Biblical foundation, and it is often more stream-of-consciousness than clear, logical writing. Furthermore, I found it difficult to connect You are free Lyons, who le a much different lifestyle than my o I read this book as part of a Bible study group at work this year, and I was extremely disappointed in it.
