There are a lot of things that can take us out of the right frame of mind and focusing on the wrong things. In his new book, Take Back Your Life by Levi Lusko, we take a 40-day journey to confront outside circumstances and internal battles and get our focus back on God and taking our lives back.
What It Is
Take Back Your Life is a hardcover book that covers 40 days of study to help you get your life back in the way and order of God. Each day is actually a chapter in the book. It starts off with a title (the main theme of the chapter) and a bible verse. The chapter ends with a prayer and a Breathe, Think, and Live. The Breathe, Think, and Live section asks questions about what was talked about. It also makes you dig deeper into what you have just learned. They are simple questions, and they would seem to be easy to answer until you think about them!
At the end of the book, there is an appendix that includes scripture to memorize. This is a great way to help enforce what we are talking about through the 40 days that we work on this journey.
How We Used It
I had intended to use this with my husband. While I will still use this with him, for this review, I went ahead and used this for myself. This is not only broken down by days but also by weeks. This is a full 40-day journey. This is not 5 days a week, this is daily. Just as Jesus was tempted for 40 days straight, so are we. And since we are, why take a day off?
At one chapter a day, it was easy to do. The reading was deep but easy. Levi wrote to us, the readers. Because of this, it makes what we read that much more interesting. We are able to really dig into the readings as if we were sitting down with a friend and talking about what life is giving us. As much as I wanted to take notes in the book, I know that I wanted to keep this book available for my husband, so I took notes in a separate notebook as well as writing my answers to the Breathe, Think, Live questions.
What We Thought Of It
I didn’t know what to think when I first decided to do this review. From the sounds of it, this was something that would be of use to my husband. When I started pre-reading it, I couldn’t put it down. I didn’t realize how much I needed something like this as much as my husband would need it as well. I thought that I had my life figured out. I knew that God and Jesus are our way to eternal life, what I didn’t know was the little things that I needed to work on in my life.
I really loved the simple and easy to read style of this book. It allows for anyone to read this book and benefit from the information within it. The way this is written as though talking to a friend allows anyone to benefit from this book. You are able to read it simply and take away just what you need.
If you feel as though you are struggling (and really who isn’t) and need to get your life back in your control (with help from God), this is a book you want to have in your house! Take the 40 days to change your way of thinking and get your life right.
