Summary

A refreshingly simple guide to recover your life.

In Get Your Life Back, New York Times best-selling author John Eldredge provides a practical, simple, and refreshing guide to taking your life back.

By practicing a few wonder­fully simple practices - or what John calls “graces” - you can begin to recover your soul, disentangle from the tragedies of this broken world, and discover the restorative power of beauty.

Ask yourself: 

  • Are you happy most of the time?
  • Do you feel deeply loved?                                            
  • Are you excited about your future? 
  • How often do you feel lighthearted?

After listening to this book you will:

  • Learn how to insert the One Minute Pause into your day
  • Begin practicing “benevolent detachment” and truly let it all go
  • Offer kindness toward yourself in the choices you make
  • Drink in the simple beauty available to you every day
  • Take realistic steps to unplug from technology overload

These simple practices and others are ready for the taking. You don’t need to abandon your life to get it back. Begin restoring your life here and now. Your soul will thank you for it.

Includes audiobook-exclusive commentary from John Eldredge after select chapters.

Just what I needed

Having read one of John’s books many years ago I knew I would benefit from this one. I didn’t expect it to benefit it me so much! Thanks for sharing these wisdom bits with us. I am implementing these one step at a time and I also highly recommend the dvd and study guide!

Get your life back John Eldredge

This beautiful book gives us a rare opportunity to reflect on our lives considering all that we experience, endure & enjoy in each season in this frantic world.In those reflections we are encouraged to pay attention to the state of our soul, our relationship with God, our relationships with family, friends, nature, our mobile phones, social media, internet use & even time itself. John Eldredge gently offers us advice & tools to help us navigate our way back to joy & peace filled living, at a slower pace, giving ourselves opportunities to be kinder to ourselves & others, and most importantly giving ourselves the ability to deepen our walk with God. I wholeheartedly recommend this book.
