Overextended and loving most of it By: Lisa Harper

Overextended…and loving most of it! By: Lisa Harper

We’ve all been there, the days where we feel so wrung out but still have more to get done. The days where the bad feels like it outweighs the good. We understand that life is busy and some things in life come hurtling at us and we have no control and no way to prepare for the outcome. Lisa Harper’s latest book, Overextended is just about those days. However, this book is not another how-to book on how to handle what life throws at you or another story of someone who has it all together.

In Overextended Lisa Harper has taken a huge step in being transparent in the trials she has faced during one of the most trying times she has gone through, Lisa takes you through her journey of adoption, sick family members and surviving and finding the joy in the little moments when we feel ready to jump. Lisa reminds us that God isn’t expecting us to show up looking perfect but instead

“I think this is what we’re supposed to look like when we stand before Jesus. I don’t think we’re supposed to show up in glory with time to spare, a fresh manicure, and perfect hair. I think if we’re really living the gospel, we’re going to fall at His feet exhausted and messy, with mismatched socks, just plumb worn out from loving people as hard as we can!”

I really enjoyed this book and the transparency that Lisa was willing to share with us, especially when we see her, or other speakers and authors in person and sometimes feel like these people have it all together and that everything seems to go there way, through Lisa’s story we see and understand that she has struggled with the same things we do, from failed adoptions to losing loved ones, that even though life gets overwhelming we can still learn to enjoy most of it!


I received this book complimentary through the Booksneeze program in exchange for an honest review, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
