Beloved speaker and radio host Hallie Lord shows how to use unexpected hardships and challenges to build a life that will make you more secure and grounded than ever before.
Hallie Lord understands the upheaval life can bring. From her parents’ divorce when she was a preteen to moving eleven times in fifteen years with her family, the radical changes she faced relentlessly pushed her toward fear and helplessness. Yet by digging into her faith and through much self-reflection, she realized that even though those challenges had left her a bit battered and bruised, they had also equipped her for any difficulty that may arise.
In Falling Home, she describes the four interconnected foundations that now give her strength and security during life’s upheavals:
- committed, supportive friendships,
- healthy family relationships,
- an intimate love affair with God, and
- a compassionate sense of self.
Inviting readers into her hard-fought journey, Lord shows them how they, too, can embrace whatever life brings their way. With lyrical prose and a tender, inviting voice, she shares how hurts and sacrifices are also the groundwork for creating a beautiful life that can catch them whenever they fall.

But over the past year or two, I’ve gained peace and confidence in who I am and what God put me on this earth to do. They have settled into my bones. I am no longer so easily hurt by the opinions of others, and I’m far less impressionable than I once was. Now, when I ask myself why I did that thing or reacted that way or made that choice, I am almost always, after a little self-examination and consultation with God, able to answer.
Hallie's life story is not only interesting but so poignant. Her vulnerability throughout the chapters, is palpable but she also exudes this incredible strength and faith that so many of us only wish we had. She gives us the tools to know how to deal with whatever life throws our way. The battles, the hurt, the grief, everything moves us continually towards our Heavenly home, towards unshakeable faith, and towards living a full, happy life no matter the obstacles in our path.
I learned so much through her journey, and I know that I'll take many of these lessons with me.
