Getting Back Up When Life Knocks You Down By Jeremy Kingsley Book Review

In Getting Back Up When Life Knocks You Down, Jeremy Kingsley provides readers with valuable information to get back up when we fall and fail in life. We all go through tough times and we will sometimes feel as if we can't keep going on. Our hearts gets heavy with the trials of this life. Kingsley teaches that you have to forgive one another and why forgiveness is very important to our well being. We can't play the blame game and expect to win. We also must learn to control our anger and let it go.

Jeremy has had to endure tough times in his beginning of his speaking career and his marriage. He wasn't even making enough money to afford a decent meal. He had to go to the pastor and be vulnerable with their struggling financial times. The church started helping them out. Kingsley wrote this book in order to encourage us to persevere when life knocks us down. He has been down and out and he had to choose to stand back up. He gives readers helpful steps to standing back up.

Some of the steps include "Be willing to fail, look for the joy, seek out friends, mentors, and role models", and much more.

I can tell you that the steps have helped me in believing that hope is still very much alive. We are living in tough times but God is still there and he does care! Jeremy Kingsley has a number of great ways to encourage and lead readers down the right path. It has scripture to back up his teachings which I love.

One of my favorite scriptures he included was:

“We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him.” Romans 8:28

I would most definitely recommend this book to anyone who feels alone and depressed. You can lean on God to have the strength to help you stand back up! He is there and he loves you very much! If you have lost your job, dreams, or your hope then read this book! God is still in control and he will help anyone who calls his name. There is healing and wholeness in the Lord!

“I received this book free from the publisher through the Bethany House Publishers book review bloggers program.”
