They say timing is everything, right? Well, today was the day I hoped to have some free sample chapters of my new book Lean on Me (it comes out in October) for you.
I’m speaking over at the (in)RL conference this weekend (Saturday, specifically) and sharing a bit of the story behind Lean on Me.
However, (wah-wah!) the samples won’t be ready for another couple weeks or so (I’m sorry!) but…
I’d love to send them to you as a free PDF as soon as I get my grubby little hands on them.
How do you get them? Easy, peasy. Put your email address in the little form below (if you don’t see a form and you’re reading this from an email, just click here!) and viola!
You can find out more about the book (and pre-order it if you’re feeling sassy) here or you can read the little nugget below.
Have you ever found yourself in what feels like your darkest hour desperately seeking a lifeline?
Life has a way of throwing unexpected obstacles in our path, tripping us up, and bringing us to our knees. When these crises hit, who do you call? Who do you lean on? Anne Marie Miller found herself in one of these valleys on the floor of a hotel bathroom while on a business trip. Months of stress accumulated and took its toll. In a moment of desperation, she picked up the phone and called a friend for guidance. That simple phone call was the first step in a transforming journey of evaluating what community truly meant and looked like in her life.
We live in a world and a generation where the word “community” is often discussed. But how genuine and authentic are your relationships really? Anne Marie noticed an important tension all of us must recognize in order to have life-giving friendships: “We desperately want to belong yet at the same time, we yearn for independence.”
In Lean On Me, Anne Marie Miller takes us along as she sets out to dig below the superficial and explore what choices are necessary to find intentional, vulnerable, and consistent community. Jesus was passionate about truth-speaking relationships. And with Anne Marie’s narrative and practical insights interwoven together, you will feel more equipped in your quest for these types of relationships as you seek people to lean on and as you pour love into those around you.
Have a great weekend!
