Breathing Room is an invitation to take a break and pull our chair up to the table. Leannna Tankersley does not sugarcoat things, she writes the hard core truth about our struggles. She tells us it is time to beating ourselves up over the messes in life and make some room to just breathe. To stop and take a look around the dull brown world around us, experiencing the rare beauty that is there in front of us. It is truly a breath of fresh air in a world filled full of the smog of despair.
This book was given to me for free for exchange of a review by Book Fun Network.
Unplanned by Abby Johnson
Abby Johnson was once a director of a Planned Parenthood clinic in Texas, until one day she had a very eye-opening experience. She tells her story from how she got involved as a young college student volunteer to the moment her life was changed one day in October 2009. Going in as a volunteer, Abby Johnson had a heart for women in crisis; she truly believed she was helping them. Her goal was to educate women on the options they had after finding themselves with an unwanted pregnancy, while diminishing the amount of abortions performed. As the years passed she evolved from being a volunteer to working with the women that came into the clinic as a counselor. When the opportunity came around to become a director of the clinic where she worked at as a counselor, she jumped at the chance to make a difference in the clinic. During these years her deep longing to have connection with God seemed to not be attainable as she experienced rejection from her home church over her job choice. At the same time there was several Coalition for Life volunteers that reached out a hand and just said we are here for you when you are ready to talk. That day in Oct 2009, Abby Johnson walked out of the clinic a changed woman and crossed the fence that divided pro-choice and pro life.
This book is very much a must-read for all.
