Running from the Heart By Jeannie Long Feature

Running from the Heart” – is a devotional to inspire and encourage women to live strong and courageous lives for Christ. It’s a legacy to their daughter Rebecca (32) who went home to heaven on May 8th 2014.

“I want you to know that I am reading Running from the Heart and I am so moved by it. I can think of so many people I want to share it with. I am going to go on the website and purchase 25 to give away. Thank you for writing this. I have fallen in love with your daughter. What a treasure. I have cried for your loss. I just, just, just LOVE the way you structured the book. It will be a blessing to so many. Thank you Jeannie.”  Marsha, OH

“Running from the Heart is an authentic and real picture of what it looks like to follow Jesus. Rebecca's beautiful life and walk with Christ will inspire you to run after God with faith and perseverance. The book shares how Rebecca overcame pain, suffering, struggles, and trials in her life through her faith in God. This is a great gift for any young person seeking after the Lord and longing to live for something that will last forever. It is a book that is a blessing as an individual devotion and in group discussions in small groups as well.

I can't wait for my two young daughters to read this powerful book that I know will have a huge impact on their faith walk with God. Rebecca lived liked Jesus and I hope that one day my girls choose to follow Jesus and grow up to become a Rebecca to this lost and hurting world.

 “Running from the Heart”(published by Xlibris) was birthed from the broken heart of Jeannie Long. Long’s heart was first broken when her 17-year-old son, Alex, committed suicide, following cyber-bullying and drug taking. Unbelievably, eight years later, her daughter, Rebecca, drowned in a terrible accident in Lake Michigan. Unable to go on, Long decided to end her life. At the last moment, the presence of God filled the room and she was transformed in a divine encounter.

Discovering Rebecca’s journals and encouraged by hundreds of messages, Long was moved to share the legacy of her daughter’s courageous and triumphant life. “Running from the Heart” is a unique devotional based on the last eight years of Rebecca’s life told through her journal entries, with messages from the broken heart of her mother. Dealing with matters of the heart, Rebecca transferred what she learned as a champion athlete to her journey through life.

She wrote: “What I learned as an athlete prepared me for such a time as this.” “Women (and people in general) are facing unprecedented challenges to live full and abundant lives.  Depression, suicide and addiction are all on the rise and, possibly more than anything else, they are looking for authentic and honest guidance to help them navigate through the struggles and challenges they are facing.” Through the example of girl, who had the world at her feet and yet still chose to follow God's plan for her life, the author’s hope and prayer is that “Running from the Heart” will encourage women to stay strong to what is true and right, whatever pressure, struggles or challenges they may face.
