Do you feel like you have a lopsided life? Good. You’re normal! Instead of constantly trying to "fix" our lives by achieving some perfect balance that doesn’t exist, let’s dump the guilt and admit that we need to lean into God. His perfect plan for us includes seasons of life when we may be more focused on caring for our children or our elderly parents, working for pay, or volunteering at church. Free to Lean gives you permission to recognize the season you're in and live in harmony with it.

vics495485 Stars Out Of 5Free to Lean!July 14, 2017vics49548Quality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Balance can be such a struggle for us as women. Many of us work full time. Care for a home and family. Volunteer. Run kids to soccer practice. Take the dog to the vet. So many good things pulling on our time but yet we're afraid to say "no". Guilt piles up and life is affected.
Author Joselyn Green shows us that it's okay to say "no". But more than that, it's okay to lean. Lean into God and embrace the season you're in right now. With refreshing honesty about her life, we discover that we're not alone. You'll feel welcomed and invited to join her in this lopsided life. You'll laugh, and maybe cry, as truth sinks in.
I used this as a devotional and so much of it has been highlighted so I can go back and reread what struck me the most. Such as the fact that our purpose is not our identity. Refreshing! I strongly encourage you to read Free to Lean. It really will be life changing.
I received a complimentary copy of this book but was not required to leave a review.
Beantown Buckeye5 Stars Out Of 5Encouragement for All WomenJune 9, 2017Beantown BuckeyeQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Wow! At a time when there are an abundance of books for women addressing issues of "Shoulda, Coulda, Woulda," and "how to truly have it all" - this book is a welcome relief. Jocelyn doesn't try to help her reader figure out "God's plan for their life" or how to have "work/life balance." Rather she seeks to provide critical encouragement to those who believe they are living out their purpose in life and understand that obedience to God's calling and challenges go hand in hand. Unfortunately, literature can be all to rare in affirming women in any walks of life. Jocelyn doesn't paint the picture of an ideal life that comes to terms with "beautiful messes." She also doesn't encourage her readers to take mediation breaks or go on personal retreats to climb 1,000 foot rock faces with their bare hands.
Rather she tells all women that their lives have purpose no matter where they are. Readers will discover thoughtful, unique and creative ways to receive the necessary encouragement they need to keep going despite the struggles. If you are looking for a book to make life easier - this is not it! If you are looking for a book where the author resoundingly says "Keep Going - You Can Do It!" - this is your book!
Jeanette5 Stars Out Of 5Great book!April 4, 2017JeanetteQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0This book was exactly what I needed right now. I recommend this to every woman out there. Are you feeling insignificant, like you're not doing enough or constantly comparing yourself and your gifts to others? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you have to read this book. I was so encouraged and motivated to really lean on God. Thanks Jocelyn Green for writing this book and also for including real life women that we can relate to!
