On the move . . . again? Wondering when you will arrive?
Sometimes God leads people out of familiar territory so he can tell them who they are. That moment you depart, you experience reinvention, renewal, and freedom. You get a redo on the adjectives associated with your name.
Almost There is for those on the move and those who feel restless right where they are. Its for those who struggle with not belonging, with feeling unsettled, with believing that home is out of their reach, at least for the moment. And Almost There is for those who find themselves in a transient lifestyle they didnt expectsay, moving across the country for a new job or the military or an opportunity to begin again.
With imaginative storytelling and witty, relatable prose, Bekah DiFelice offers wisdom for those struggling to belong in a world where home is constantly shifting. When our hope of home is rooted in an unchangeable God, we are not uprooted, lost, or made homeless by change. We become found ones on the move.
JanetBelton, TXAge: 45-54Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Teaching through TestimonyAugust 5, 2017JanetBelton, TXAge: 45-54Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5In her new book, Almost There: Searching for Home in a Life on the Move, Bekah DiFelice gives her testimony through twelve stories of adjustments she and her husband made upon entering military life. She tells of getting married and moving away from home for the first time, of getting used to new homes and communities, of making friends, finding churches, parenting away from the support of extended family, and of trying to discern what's best for everyone involved. And as she tells her story, her testimony, she shares the lessons she learned along the way: lessons in trusting God through it all, lessons in letting Him be her heart's home.
DiFelice has a subtle sense of humor that makes her stories fun to read, yet her gift for words conveys deep truth as well. I found encouragement and gleaned useful insights from every chapter as I enjoyed reading this book, a gift from Tyndale House Publishers, so I could share my opinion with you. Whether or not you are part of a military family or find yourself moving every few years, DiFelice's stories will have something to teach you. I recommend this read!
Cricket5 Stars Out Of 5Delightful Journey (Especially for Military Wives)June 19, 2017CricketQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Some of us have roots that go deep into where we have established a home. We may live not far from where we grew up as children, but others have known many places. For those folks, the impermanence of home tends to be one of lifes most recurring surprises.
That has been the life of Bekah DiFelice as the wife of a former Marine. It raises questions many of us have never considered such as: Is it possible to build a permanent sense of home in a rootless life? If home is where the heart is what can we love that will quiet the restlessness within?
In Almost Home, Bekahs first book, she invites the reader into her very personal journey of impermanence and how she has discovers resilience along with valuable lessons about love, faith, and relationship that anyone can apply to his or her life whether one that has been rooted in the same place or not.
Treenz4 Stars Out Of 5Some interesting insightsJune 12, 2017TreenzQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3This book caught my eye with the phrase on the cover 'Searching for Home in a Life on the Move'. As someone who has travelled and moved a lot and had a transient life, where I so often feel in limbo, I was interested to hear Bekah's angle on this topic. I haven't really come across other books that deal with this before either.
I read this book cover to cover in an afternoon. While it was nothing too deep, it was interesting enough to maintain my attention. Bekah is a military wife, and myself having never known anyone in that lifestyle, it was definitely good to learn about how things are for them. She had some key insights that I found helpful in my own situation also.
I enjoyed Bekah's style of writing too - creative and
descriptive, some touches of humor here and there, and just easily relatable for me, at least. I think on the whole I would describe this book as an easy, light and enjoyable read. More aimed toward females definitely, but there would be some take aways for guys if they filter through. I wouldn't class this book as a must read however, but it is good.
Please note that I was sent a copy of this book for purposes of review, however all opinions expressed are entirely my own.
