Book Review: The In-Between by Jeff Goins

 "Life is one big wait."

I realized this truth over the course of this past year when I found myself waiting for our family's next move. It dawned on me that I lived in between moves. And when I was waiting for the next move to arrive, I was in between cities, friends, and churches. My kids were in between schools, teachers, youth groups, and their own friendships. We are always waiting for the next {whatever}. It's taken some time for me to discover the value of experiencing life to its fullest in the in-between.

Whether you're waiting like I am or you're waiting in line at the grocery store, our life is one big wait. And while we're waiting, we need to live in the moment.

Jeff Goins realized this truth and shared it from his heart in his latest book, The In-Between: Embracing the Tension Between Now and the Next Big Thing. In the process of sharing his testimony of waiting, we come to understand our life is not just a journey. With Jeff's help, we can discover the deeper meaning of our own waiting.

The In-Between is a memoir packed with a lesson we can all learn from.

  1. Hi Alycia! I'm catching up on all by bloggy buddies since I've been on a hiatus of sorts. I see you're moving the kids back to NY, and I can tell that decision wasn't easy. Prayers for you as you head back "home."

    And I loved "In-Between" -- kudos to Jeff for another great read!

    1. Thanks so much for your prayers, Susan! We had a great trip home and are so relieved to be "off road" for awhile.

      Jeff keeps writing great books, doesn't he? I look forward to whatever he has in store for his next one.
