Leeana Tankersley in her new book, “Breathing Room book coverBreathing Room”  published by Revell teaches us Letting Go So You Can Fully Live.


Catastrophe or no catastrophe, if you are unhinged, disoriented, suffocating, or otherwise generally dragging, I’m inviting you to pull up a chair at this table . . .

Breathing Room is a beautiful release of self-condemnation, a discovery of the rest that comes when we offer ourselves some space to breathe. Vulnerable and winsome, Leeana Tankersley shows you how to stop beating yourself up, how to be radically on your own team, and how to truly experience grace. If you’ve been putting on a strong front and yet are secretly coming apart, you’ll find in these pages a trusted friend.

Who is the biggest bully in your life? You are. Who is the person you bully? You, of course. We compare ourselves to others and continually come up short. We analyze situations we had been in and feel we could have handled things better, we even remember those situations years later and what does that accomplish? Nothing, except it locks us into a box with very little wiggle room. Ms. Tankersley tells us that if we hold our breath eventually our body will start an alarm to warn us that we must breath. According to her what the body is telling us is that we must eliminate Carbon Dioxide before we take a breath. We have to let go of all the bad before we can let in any good. That is what “Breathing Room” is all about. It is a tool to help let go of all the bullying that we give ourselves and allow God in to help heal us and get us going in the right direction.
