Publisher's Description

Women today are fading. In a female culture built on Photoshopped perfection and Pinterest fantasies, we’ve lost the ability to dream our own big dreams. So busy trying to do it all and have it all, we’ve missed the life we were really designed for. And we are paying the price. The rise of loneliness, depression, and anxiety among the female population in Western cultures is at an all-time high. Overall, women are two and a half times more likely to take antidepressants than men. What is it about our culture, the expectations, and our way of life that is breaking women down in unprecedented ways?

In this vulnerable memoir of transformation, Rebekah Lyons shares her journey from Atlanta, Georgia, to the heart of Manhattan, where she found herself blindsided by crippling depression and anxiety. Overwhelmed by the pressure to be domestically efficient, professionally astute, and physically attractive, Rebekah finally realized that freedom can come only by facing our greatest fears and fully surrendering to God’s call on our lives. This book is an invitation for all women to take that first step toward freedom. For it is only when we free-fall that we can truly fly.

    I have struggled with depression/ anxiety and honestly this book was more of a trigger than an encouragement.

    This is the story of Rebekah Lyons, who moves from Atlanta to New York City, and struggles with her new location. Through various circumstances and new friends, she overcomes her anxiety and finds her way. I thought the book was an okay read but I had a hard time staying interested in the story.

    I believe Rebekah Lyon's memoir was candid, authentic and truthful. She didn't hide, she exposed a lot of herself and her experiences, which I appreciated. I also find her to be a talented writer, so on that front, I enjoyed reading her memoir.

    If there was one word I could use to describe her book, it would be surrender.

    "Freefall to Fly" was about Rebekah Lyons journey to find God and herself. In the midst of it, God delivered her from severe and debilitating anxiety attacks.

    I found this aspect of her story to be encouraging, but I do not believe this is common. Most people do not get delivered from anxiety because they cry out to God in desperation. This was the authors experience, which I respect, however, there are many who have to be on medication and that is no indication God loves them any less because they weren't delivered.

    ***I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher to review.

    I was excited to receive "Freefall to Fly" because it sounded like a book I could relate to. Rebekah Lyons did not disappiont. Lyons describes her journey as a woman, a wife and a mother and the struggles and triumphs that go along with it. I appreciate her transparency and honesty as life didn't turn out the way she thought it would. Isn't that true of so many of us? We have big fairy tale dreams as young women, we want to have it all, we think we can have it all and yet the very things we thought we wanted, don't make us happy. Why is that?

    Lyons suffered with debilitating panic attacks and depression and couldn't figure out why or how to make it all stop. She would think she had it under control for a while, but when she least expected it, she would have another panic attack. Many of the points she brought up, I find interesting:

    "Women are 70% more likely than men to experience depression. One in four women will suffer some form of depression in her lifetime...We aren't depressed because we are getting old; we are depressed in the prime of our lives. During the years when we ought to be making some of our greatest contributions to others and to the world, we are stuck. Caught in the quagmire of confusion, hardly able to put one foot in front of the other.."

    "I'm no medical doctor, and I have no degrees in psychology, but I do love to listen to the stories of women. Women who are in the sweet spot of this demographic who are fighting to make sense of their lives. I hear the stories, unpack their pain, and consistently flind a common perpetrator. We don't know who we are. We all feel this self-doubt. The nagging sense that we don't quite have what it takes. The loss of clarity over why on earth we exist. The demands of life are piled on us from every direction - from ambitious husbands with amped-up libidos to screaming kids wanting the crusts cut off their PB and J sandwiches to in-laws demanding their fair share of holiday celebrations. Each of these things in isolation, no big deal. All combined, the weight is too much to bear.

    This is the story many of us live with. But it's not the life we want to live or the legacy we want to follow us for generations. In the still moments we cling to the hope that there must be a better way. A way to live out the purposes God has for each of us. Yet that way is lost on us."

    While I haven't been clinically depressed, I do struggle with knowing who I am and what God is calling me to do. I do struggle with those outside pressures and with wanting things to be just so. I want to make everyone happy and at times make myself miserable in the process. This book was validation for me that we are all in the same boat. Even though women put on a happy face and may look like they have it all together, we share in the same struggles.

    I found Lyons' honesty refreshing and enjoyed this book so incredibly much. I highly recommend this to any woman who needs to stop trying to control all of the details in her life and give up that control to the God who loves us and has plans of each of us.

    I received this book free from Handlebar Publishing in exchange for an honest review. I don't have to give it a favorable review, but I am because I really liked it!
