Publisher's Summary

What will you do when the unthinkable happens in your life?

Her parents called her Lenya Lion because of her ferocious personality and hair that had been wild and manelike since birth. But they never expected that five days before Christmas, their five-year-old daughter would suddenly go to heaven after an asthma attack. How do you walk out of an emergency room without your daughter?

In Through the Eyes of a Lion, Pastor Levi Lusko shares the eye-opening truth of the power of hope in a world that is often filled with pain, suffering, and loss. He says, "This book isn't a manual for grieving but a manifesto for high-octane living, and through it I want you to see that God made you for a purpose. There is a wild and wonderful calling on your life, a microphone in your hands. Jesus wants you to look at the adventure of your life through His eyes, the eyes of a Lion."

Part memoir but all overtly instructive and deeply inspirational, Through the Eyes of a Lion gives listeners the tools they need to face their fears and turn their journeys into roar stories.

Chapter themes include:

  • Don't rely on the naked eye
  • Run toward the roar
  • There's no such thing as a wireless anchor
  • Let God use your pain
  • Cue the eagle

What we do in life really does echo in eternity. You are destined for impact, and there's not a moment to lose!

Hurting with hope

I love the gripping honesty of this book. It's amazing for me as a believer to hear the faithfulness of God when it's painful, and encourages me to have faith! If you're wondering why God allows pain in your life, I encourage you to listen to this audiobook or buy the physical copy, you'll be so glad you did.

Awesome read for any season of life.

This was exactly what I needed. After unexpectedly losing my wife of 10 years last May, this book hit home. Lusko's life examples helped me feel normal in a season where I have a million question. It reaffirmed things I already knew but needed to be reminded of. We serve a loving God, who has the big picture, his will, in mind. Mr. Lusko, thank you. I needed this.

Heavy

This is a heavy listen. I often found myself having to stop to collect my thoughts and wipe away tears. I would walk around with headphones on and hoping nobody could see me crying. Truly a moving story and lesson for all. Thank you Levi for having the courage to share something so personal with us.

AMAZING

I lost my dad 5 years ago at 15 and I wish I had this book. Now I am 20 and this book is such a good book and has helped me. I love seeing Levi at Fresh Life and happy that this Montana native got to share the experience of Montana and his church with him.
