Publisher's summary

A beautiful invitation to discover your place in God's heart and let him set the pace for your life - from a wife and mother, singer-songwriter, and worship leader for Passion Conferences and IF:Gathering

“Christy Nockels is a gentle, strong voice shepherding us into a fuller life with Jesus at the very center. This book will restore your weary soul.” (Jennie Allen, New York Times best-selling author of Get Out of Your Head and founder and visionary of IF:Gathering)

Christy Nockels knows firsthand how easily our desire to serve God - even when using the gifts he has given us - can overshadow our delight in simply being with him. When God called her to lay down her ministry for a season, Christy was forced to confront how her sense of purpose and worth had become tangled up in her work. God then lovingly invited her to discover true rest in his presence as she learned to live as the Beloved.

In The Life You Long For, Christy shows us how to let go of hustle and achievement and instead find our identity in the quiet center of God’s love. As we delight in being with him, we are filled to overflowing with contentment and love that propel us into an entirely new way of being, one in which every act of service and every encounter with the people around us arise from a heart at rest.

With irresistible warmth and grace, this book calls you to step fully into the life you didn’t even realize you’ve been seeking, as you find your highest calling not in a duty to uphold but in a beautiful identity to live out.

This audiobook features original music by Nathan Nockels and is used with permission of the artist.

Critic reviews

“Christians looking to slow down and form more intimate relationships will enjoy Nockels’ impassioned reminder that God provides a community and love to those who ask.” (Publishers Weekly)

“In the hustle and grind of life, we can mistakenly believe that our good works and effort curry favor with God. The Life You Long For is a song for us to learn and sing in our own harmony so our souls can be set free.” (Bianca Juarez Olthoff, speaker, teacher, and best-selling author of How to Have Your Life Not Suck)

“As I was reading The Life You Long For, I felt like I was having coffee with a sweet friend who was constantly reminding me and my heart to rest - not just any sort of rest, but resting in God’s love for me and His plans for me.” (Jamie Ivey, best-selling author and host of The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey podcast)
