book review: almost there

411WciZ5ICL._AC_US218_I was next to positive I had already reviewed this book, but it turns out I hadn’t… I wish I had written this earlier so that I could have done the book full justice. It’s been a while since I read it. But all of that said, I’ll try to give you a decent idea of what it’s like with just a few bullet points.

  • I could really identify with the premise of author Bekah DiFelice’s writing, because I understand what it’s like to feel transient, like you’re always on the move and have no place to put down roots. Bekah is a military wife, so her situation isn’t just like mine, but there were many years in our lives where it felt like I was packing boxes and moving us around all the time… and so reading about someone else’s similar experience was refreshing.
  • I appreciated the way that Bekah paralleled these vagabond experiences with spiritual lessons. There are so many!
  • Almost There pointed me toward Home. Our times of feeling homeless here on earth always increase my longing for the never-ending Heaven we’re headed towards, and I’m thankful for that.

Almost There is all about interacting with your surroundings – attaching, un-attaching, moving, and the growth that takes place through it all. The autobiographical aspect of Bekah’s book was educational, and the spiritual aspect of it was very encouraging. I’d highly recommend Almost There – in fact, I already bought a copy for someone else! 🙂

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my review.
