Book Description

23 Mar 2013
Anyone who’s struggled with an addiction of some sort would agree that finding lasting contentment from the actual addiction is much like a dog chasing its tail—only a lot less adorable. Let Me Fall is the love story between God and His dimwitted daughter. I’m the dimwit in case you were wondering. As a grown woman, it pains me to admit that the catalyst for this story was my obsession with Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight saga, and the despair immediately following my reading it. If my despair were merely of the lighthearted, “oh darn I chipped a nail” variety, you wouldn’t be reading this book description. But it wasn’t, and you are. As in most tales of woe, I hit rock-bottom, which meant all my nails got chipped. Fearing the savage state of my cuticles as well as my heart, I finally called out to Father God for help. Spoiler Alert: He showed up with a spiritual defibrillator. Let Me Fall is where my literal world figuratively collides with God as He shows me more of who I am and who He is. My story isn’t a formula for falling in love with God. But I would be thrilled if it is a catalyst for others to do the same.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book changes things in you forever 2 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
If you are like me, you imagine The Holy Spirit like a vapor gravitating somewhere between The Father and The Son, something that I could not understand and therefore relate to. It is no miracle that I pretty much ignored Him for 12 years. At some point Beth Pensinger agreed to be brave enough to go on an adventure and literally crack her heart and life wide open in front of us all. She probably didn't even know where to start when she said "yes". But when she opened her heart we all got to see an Amazing Person, wise and kind and loyal and friendly, with fantastic taste in music and who is absolutely not just vapor.

Thanks, Beth for being brave and fun and just about lovely. Your book made me cry and laugh hysterically and at times check for cameras to make sure no one is spying on me and then writing about it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring Read! 4 April 2013
By Beth J. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I stayed up last night way past my bedtime because I could not put this book down and I HAD to finish it. While everyone's walk with God is unique, Beth Pensinger has written a story that is so relatable, personal, encouraging and inspiring. Let Me Fall helped to remind me that I am not alone in my sin, stumbles and falls (so narcissistic to believe that I am the only one who struggles - ha!), and inspired me to continue my journey and adventure with God with renewed energy. Let Me Fall is a book that I will reread and enjoy over and over. This book has also solved my eternal conundrum of what to give my friends and family for Christmas, birthdays, and other special occasions. I truly believe that all the special women in my life need to read this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved, loved, loved it!!! 13 April 2013
By Renee R. Jordan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This book came at such a timely point in my life. After drifting away from a Christ centered life, I was trying to find my way back and it wasn't at all easy because of my own Theb. (read the book) Immediately before reading this book, I read Heaven Is For Real and The Shack. Let Me Fall is completely different than The Shack YET very much like it in someways in that it took God off the shelf and made Him soooo relatable! God nursed my soul through these books literally! I know now that my own personal relationship with Him can be so much more than I thought possible. I thank Him and Beth Pensinger for the blessing I received!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thought-provoking and entertaining! 9 April 2013
By lhagen - Published on Amazon.com
Let Me Fall is unlike anything I've read before. I truly felt like the author was in the room with me, telling me the story of how she fell in love with God. Pensinger's perspective on God's love is unique and thought-provoking. She has actually changed the way I envision God - no longer the man with the white robes and beard - but a hipper, more relatable God who really wants my friendship and love (and, evidently has some pretty amazing dance moves!)
Thank you, Beth Pensinger, for your honest and open account of your journey with God.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique storytelling sure to move you 9 April 2013
By lreesey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As other reviewers have indicated Let Me Fall is an easy read. I read it over a weekend and trust me I'm not a speed reader. For me the reason is simple - it is so rare in today's world to see so many relatable truths told in such a creative real world fashion. Beth's story is each of our own stories except she was brave enough to share it honestly - all of it. While I think this is a story for all ages I believe it's really important for our youth/young adults who are just starting to live in the 'real' world. This isn't a guide but proof to all of us that it is possible to live out your faith. By tying together a unique combination of popular culture, her own brand of humor, imagination and insight along with biblical references Beth manages to tell the reader's own story by sharing hers. The greatest part of Let Me Fall is that this story is just the beginning...

5.0 out of 5 stars A Sweet Story with Life-altering Promise 6 April 2013
By Rose F - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Read it in a single sitting. I love a good story, and I've read hundreds of books, but none has moved me to submit a review until this one. Beth doesn't know me, but through her words she has managed to shine a light into some rather specific dark places in my life so that I can clearly see this ledge I'm clinging to with my Theb, and she gives me great hope that I can get away. I am revived, inspired, and excited about the next step in my own journey. This book answers all excuses for not seeking God's will in your life.
