The Story of With by Allen Arnold

The Story of With: A Better Way to Live, Love, & Create by [Arnold, Allen]

Back Cover Blurb:

You are not alone.

“Whether you’re a free spirit, an office exec, a writer, musician, college student, or tired parent–your soul, like mine, knows life is meant to go beyond rat races and rare applause. This book speaks to that belief. And if you’re not careful, you may find tears warming your eyes as you read because finally someone is naming your weariness, your striving, your questions of why you just can’t quite make it, or the emptiness that hit because maybe you did. It is into those places The Story of With reaches–fusing allegory with application–to offer fresh perspective, restored hope, and a rebirth of creativity.”

–From the Foreword by Mary Weber,                                                                                                          Christy & Carol Award-Winning, Scholastic                                                                                                           Pick Author of the Storm Siren Trilogy

This book combines good storytelling and teaching. It’s a story that will touch you deep within. It will speak to you, wherever you are in life, right now. The teaching enriches the story and the message.

Do you know who you are? Are you aware that what you do does not define who you are? This book includes the story of Mia’s journey, and, at the same time, takes the reader on a journey to discover who he/she really is.

When I first saw this book, I thought, “what kind of title is the story of WITH”? As I read it, I soon discovered just how important the title of the book is, and it couldn’t have a better-fitting title. This book will challenge you. It will make you examine your life, your choices. It might inspire you to make some changes.

This book held me captive and left a very deep impression upon me. It resonates with me, and it challenged me to make a few changes in my life. This book fanned a spark that was already in me and created a flame. I am sure I will read this book again. I have much of it highlighted in green. I, who revere books, even dog-eared a page that I want immediate access to–and I have NEVER dog-eared the page of a book before.

This book CHANGED MY LIFE, and I challenge you to read it and let it change yours.

  1. Oh yeah. I heard Allen last year at ACFW speak on this, and he included Ted Dekker in his discussions. It’s something I’ve always tried to do. Glad to see it’s getting more attention. AND, that you’ve read it. I presume you are part of the Facebook group now? 🙂
