A Different Kind of Love Story

by Landra Young Hughes

About the book

In this book, you’re going to read about a different kind of love story. It’s a love story each and every one of us is currently playing a role in–whether we’re aware of it or not. And truth be told, it’s scary-critical that we stay tuned-in to this love story. Because outside of a growing relationship with your heavenly Father, no other love (or lack of love) has the potential to improve or implode your life like the love that you have for you.

For anyone who has ever struggled with their identity, Landra Young Hughes has a radically simple message: give up. Specifically, give up your need to be in control of how other people see you. Instead, let God’s words–not yours and not others’–define you. Through her own deeply personal story of trying to control her circumstances and others’ perceptions of her through an eating disorder, Landra points the way toward a life free from self-obsession and self-resentment. She shows you how to listen to God’s voice, let go of the struggle for perfection, and live authentically from your deepest self.

 

My Thoughts

This is a nonfiction read, and is one of those books that really can speak to our innermost being. I so much appreciated the wisdom and story I read in these pages. So much that I’m reading it through again, a second time. This time, reading it out loud to my daughters.

Landra Hughes has opened up herself, her life, and shown us some of the very hard things she faced as she learned more about God, His Love, and herself.

I love her honesty, her openness, her authenticity as she tells about the struggles she faced during some of her darkest times.

If you are looking for a better understanding of God, of His Love for you, and just about how to better live a life for Him, then you won’t want to miss this one!
