"Christy Nockels is a gentle, strong voice shepherding us into a fuller life with Jesus at the very center. This book will restore your weary soul."Jennie Allen, New York Times bestselling author of Get Out of Your Head and founder and visionary of IF:Gathering
Christy Nockels knows firsthand how easily our desire to serve Godeven when using the gifts He has given uscan overshadow our delight in simply being with Him. When God called her to lay down her ministry for a season, Christy was forced to confront how her sense of purpose and worth had become tangled up in her work. God then lovingly invited her to discover true rest in His presence as she learned to live as the Beloved.
In The Life You Long For, Christy shows us how to let go of hustle and achievement and instead find our identity in the quiet center of Gods love. As we delight in being with Him, we are filled to overflowing with contentment and love that propel us into an entirely new way of being, one in which every act of service and every encounter with the people around us arise from a heart at rest.
With irresistible warmth and grace, this book calls you to step fully into the life you didnt even realize youve been seeking, as you find your highest calling not in a duty to uphold but in a beautiful identity to live out.
