Description

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 mane-like 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 readers the tools they need to face their fears and turn their journey into a roar story. Chapter themes include:

  • Don't rely on the naked eye
  • Run towards 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!

        • content: Lusko, the pastor of an evangelical church in Montana, takes a personal approach to this book, aimed at helping listeners cope with severe loss. He speaks from experience--his daughter, Lenya, whose nickname was "Lion," died at the age of 5 from a severe asthma attack just before Christmas in 2012. Lusko's text and delivery are very much in the style of a sermon, which along with its content, may not appeal to some. Still, he's a gifted speaker, and his story does provide insights into how one can cope with the the loss of a child. His pronunciation is clear, and his delivery is passionate without being melodramatic. Several years ago, this reviewer lost a son who was 19 and can quite relate to this discussion of loss and the search for meaning when one's child passes.
