Item description for The Beautiful Ache: Finding the God Who Satisfies When Life Does Not by Leigh McLeroy...
Overview Description: You've felt it. It's the ache that whispers "There's more."
When the best marriage or job or adventure doesn't fully satisfy, you feel the ache. It infuses every glimpse of beauty or wonder this world can offer and leaves you even hungrier than before. It colors your disappointments and desires with equal intensity, and it should--because you were made for another kind of living in another kind of world.
However the ache touches your heart, it is a good thing. It is meant to entice and unsettle you, and draw you closer to the God who truly satisfies. In The Beautiful Ache, Leigh McLeroy's powerful writing offers the hope you need to embrace the gap between the life you know...and the life you can't help longing for.

The Beautiful Ache Mar 27, 2007
I finished reading this book hopeful about my own story, not because of anything in myself, but because of "the ultimate goodness of the Storyteller". I've already passed along copies to family and friends for their encouragement. I look forward to reading it again!
The Beautiful Ache Mar 24, 2007
This is a lovely, well written book that should be read slowly and with care. Leigh tackles the tug of living here on earth, and the pull of longing to live in heaven. Her style is soothing and comforting from beginning to end. She shares openly about her own walk with God full of blood, sweat and tears. She guides and takes the reader's hand to join her on this mysterious journey towards heaven and into God's presence. Her words are alive and a breath of fresh air for readers who are searching. She makes a good travel companion as you read each new chapter, and you will miss her when the last page of her book is read. Judith Hayes Published Author Los Angeles, CA
A Beautiful Godsend Mar 22, 2007
This book struck so many chords and answered so many questions in my life: Why aren't my heart's desires God's desires for me? How can we listen for God's voice and hear it in everyday, ordinary non-coincidences? How can I relate my faith to others in a more meaningful way? Leigh answers all these questions and more. Most of all, she is not afraid to let her personal experiences speak loudly of her faith, even if they represent the disappointments/embarrassments/failures most of us have trouble talking about, much less writing about. Buy this book for yourself and for your friends. They will thank you.
