Product Description

The impermanence of home tends to be one of life's most recurring surprises. 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?

Take heart. You aren't adrift after all. When our hope of home is rooted in an unchangeable God, we are not uprooted, lost, ot made homeless by change. We become found ones on the move.

Publisher's Description

Recipient of Publisher’s Weekly Starred Review!
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. It’s 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 didn’t expect—say, 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.

Editorial Reviews

Starred review. Military spouse DiFelice writes eloquently about the many difficulties and benefits of moving one’s home from place to place. DiFelice, a former marathon runner, draws frequently on an attitude of endurance and “pushing through the pain” to make the most of wherever she and her Marine husband are stationed. She shares how emotions can become more volatile at the most unexpected times and the ways her poignant memories of family, friends, and key life moments meld together with a sense of loneliness each time she reaches an unfamiliar city. DiFelice is particularly touching when she recalls the Sunday afternoon shopping excursions with her mother and sister that have become fewer and fewer due to how far apart they live. Instead of wallowing in her sorrow, DiFelice calls them every Sunday so she can join with them as they walk. For DiFelice, everyone who longs for a place to call home must make (and keep making) definitive, intentional decisions to create their own haven. This book will appeal broadly to those who have lived a wandering existence, and Christian readers in particular will appreciate DiFelice’s tangents on the lives of biblical characters, which round out this fascinating take on life’s unexpected twists and turns.

    In 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!

    Some 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.

    This 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.
