Publisher's Summary

A refreshingly simple guide to recover your life.

In Get Your Life Back, New York Times best-selling author John Eldredge provides a practical, simple, and refreshing guide to taking your life back.

By practicing a few wonder­fully simple practices - or what John calls “graces” - you can begin to recover your soul, disentangle from the tragedies of this broken world, and discover the restorative power of beauty.

Ask yourself: 

  • Are you happy most of the time?
  • Do you feel deeply loved?                                            
  • Are you excited about your future? 
  • How often do you feel lighthearted?

After listening to this book you will:

  • Learn how to insert the One Minute Pause into your day
  • Begin practicing “benevolent detachment” and truly let it all go
  • Offer kindness toward yourself in the choices you make
  • Drink in the simple beauty available to you every day
  • Take realistic steps to unplug from technology overload

These simple practices and others are ready for the taking. You don’t need to abandon your life to get it back. Begin restoring your life here and now. Your soul will thank you for it.

Includes audiobook-exclusive commentary from John Eldredge after select chapters.

Captivating Adventure

Another wonderfully adventurous and captivating script. I’m just 3 chapters in and I’m finding Gods truth and Johns storytelling voice capturing my every thought.
I am a 32 year old man that has been blessed once again with a story and God honoring book of wisdom, truth and guidance that has turning me into a young boy with his ears and heart open to the next adventure. Thank you again good sir! God bless. Bobby, and tell Sam thanks for the movie, my boss loves it! ;)

Just what the soul needs

This book is wonderfully written. John Eldredge really helps you lean more into the Lord and not into worldly things. It helps you become refreshed and revived. After listening to one chapter I couldn’t put it down. It helped my soul be renewed. I love how much scripture John uses as well. Beautifully written.

Life changing!

This book embodies and puts words to everything my soul has been longing for. It’s a true answer to months of prayer and inner questioning. It’s helped me understand what I need and gave practical steps to help implement it. Every single person in this chaotic culture needs the wisdom inside this book. The relevance of it is astounding. I just finished listening and am starting it again so that I can take notes. It’s truly a wonderful book! God bless you and yours, Mr Eldredge!
