Product Description

It's often difficult to see beauty in chaos and confusion. But what if God is busy creating something enduring from life's scraps? Looking through the lens of Ecclesiates 3, Tankersley opens our eyes to glimpses of God amidst life's trials. Her insights reveal that sometimes we must let something go if we're to be born again.

Publisher's Description

Found Art is a memoir of the year author Leeana Tankersley lived in the Middle East with her Navy SEAL husband during the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. After a whirlwind courtship, a move across the world, and the unexpectedly difficult re-entry from a year overseas, Leeana finds her life (and her soul) has been changed forever. With an artist’s eye, Tankersley uses each chapter to piece together moments and memories from her journey—a handwritten note from Kuwait, a braid of fringe from a Persian rug, an original poem, a bit of basting thread, a swatch of black silk from a borrowed abaya, a mesquite leaf, a Navy SEAL trident, a receipt from the Russian-Georgian restaurant on Louisiana Street—to create a work of unexpected beauty. Found art emerges … a literary collage created from salvaged stories of loss, hope, and belief that just might change your soul, too.

    LT's book, Found Art, is one very dear to my heart!

    She describes her experiences living in Bahrain and how God met her there. The Middle East is not a place you get to read many real life experiences of 'normal' people living and following God there. That she happened to live in a place I have spent time was just icing on the cake.

    While I think those who have a love of other cultures might appreciate this most, it's a great book for anyone to read. And the audio version is great also. I've listened to it multiple times and read the book several times and it's one I continue to return to!

    I look forward to reading more from her!

    Leeanas honest and genuine words have touched the depths of my soul. Although I am not a military wife and had to look at a map to find Bahrain, she put words to the private thoughts and prayers that I could only inadequately express. Her writing is a reminder that God is not the author of injustice in the world, but he is ever present making everything beautiful in his time. This book is a must read!

    Unexpectedly moved, brought to the depths of my own emotional turmoil, and guided by her words, I can almost envision Leeanas moments as she moves from her life before Steve, a U.S. Navy SEAL, to her new married life in Bahrain200 miles from Iraq during Operation Freedom. Found Art explores the concept that life is a collage of experiences. She moves through grief and healing and coralates this to art.Life is most certainly a collage of experience, with all the scraps and secondhand oddments overlaying one another. On a few special occasions we are able to glimpse the art-in-the-makingthe found artthat is created from those throwaway bits. Leeana explains in the Introduction called, A Collage. She goes further and says, To that end, I invite you to look at this entire book as a collage of sorts: A handwritten note from Kuwait; a braid of fringe from a Persian rug; an original poem; a bit of basting thread; a swatch of black silk from a borrowed abaya; a mesquite leaf; and a Navy SEAL Trident; a reciept from the Russian-Georgian restaurant on Louisiana Street.To read more go to: given by publisher to review)Nikole Hahn

    Found Art is so artfully written, it is a masterpiece itself. As a former military wife myself, I appreciate the author's opening her world to the rest of us in this memoir. Not only is the content powerful, but her writing style is so engaging, taking the reader on a rollercoaster ride from laughter to tears. This is not just an ordinary retelling of one's story. This is a literary work, a tapestry of words. The tangle of experiences and emotions are woven into something absolutely beautiful, and transformative.
