    Book details


We all want to know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, what we were made for. Yet a calling feels like something held for the exclusive few. In You Are Free, Rebekah Lyons dismantles that idea to remind us that God has specific plans for each one of us if we have ears to hear the still small voice of a Father that beckons.  

Rebekah has traveled the country vulnerably sharing her struggles to hear God and follow Him. “I have prayed with hands laid for deliverance on women considering suicide, experiencing trauma, fighting cancer, holding off divorce, or overcoming addiction. These women, battle weary and wounded, are saying, ‘I’m done with the life I’ve created. I want to expect more from a passionate and relentless God. Please set me free’”

Abiding in God’s presence will bring us answers and sustain our life from a new place of freedom. You Are Free is a prophetic call for women to be who they’ve been designed to be, and to truly run free.

Rebekah and I have been friends for years. I’ve always been impressed with both the clarity of her message and the vulnerability and courage with which she delivers it. This book is no exception. It’s not the story of her life, it’s about what she’s learned watching Jesus invade her life. She doesn’t tell you what to do; she talks about who to trust. (BOB GOFF, author of Love Does)We consider Rebekah and Gabe to be a Godsend in our lives. Many times after sharing a warm-hearted meal, we leave inspired to take yet another step and deeper stride into our own stories of freedom. In reading Rebekah's gracious and honest words, you will be inspired to take your own steps with him in freedom. May you find the sweet space where he tends to your heart, bringing life to places you can't currently fathom. May he surprise you with each turn of the page. (CHRIS AND LAUREN TOMLIN, songwriter and worship leader)You Are Free sent me to my knees pleading with God to show me where I have missed the freedom he intended for me. It opened my eyes to places I was holding on to self, to doubt, to worry, and sent me in search of more intimacy and a deeper, fuller trust in him. Rebekah tells the truth about her journey as a child of God; a wife, mother, daughter, and friend. She invites us to a place where full reliance on him is the only way to truly be free. (KORIE ROBERTSON, Duck Dynasty)When we first met Rebekah, we felt known and loved immediately. That's what reading You Are Free is like. Rebekah invites you to peek into her journey as she finds freedom in Christ and invites us to do the same. This book is an anthem for healing, freedom, and hope in your life. (JEFF AND ALYSSA BETHKE, authors of Jesus > Religion and Spoken For)Rebekah is a sister who fights for the freedom of others. We talked in the early stages of her dreaming about this message and I told her, “You have to write this.” The anthem of freedom isn’t for a distant future, but for here and now. This book declares, as long as there is a beat in our heart, we are called to be free. (CHRISTINE CAINE, founder of Propel Women & A21)The first time I met Rebekah, I left feeling nearer to Jesus, because I knew her intimacy with him could not be staged or put on. This book won’t leave you with a to-do list or an ache in your soul to improve, but simply an invitation from someone who lives free. You'll be drawn to the foot of the cross, to worship outside the empty grave, and to embrace your freedom and the freedom of others. (JESS CONNOLLY, founder of the Influence Network and Amen Paper Company and author of Wild and Free)I wasn’t but a few pages in and wanted to shout for joy because of the power of this message. Rebekah opens up her life with refreshing authenticity and a deep commitment to Scripture. She brilliantly points out that true freedom is found when God is enough in our lives and when he has become our all. You Are Free is a call for every believer to experience the strength of God in our weakness, the beauty of God in our ashes, and the confidence of God in our insecurities. (BANNING LIEBSCHER, Jesus Culture founder and pastor)My favorite teachers teach from the trenches. Rebekah has done the work and fought for her own freedom and now is fighting for ours. I have seen my friend cry tears for your freedom. Prepare to enjoy being fought for by God through these words. (JENNIE ALLEN, founder and visionary, IF:Gathering and author of Nothing to Prove)The freedom to be exactly who God created is something we all search for. With hope, beauty, and the expertise of a skillful guide, Rebekah takes us on a journey back to living each day in the joy of being our truest self. A truly remarkable book! (MIKE FOSTER, author of People of the Second Chance: A Guide to Bringing Life-Saving Love to the World)Scripture boldly declares, 'It is for freedom that Christ has set us free,' and yet many of us cannot hear clearly, let alone enter into this truth amid the clutter of our distractions, anxieties, sorrows, fatigue, regrets, loneliness, shame, and other freedom-inhibiting realities. After reading this book in a single sitting, I felt more known, more forgiven, more loved, and more hopeful in Jesus. (SCOTT SAULS, pastor of Christ Presbyterian Church in Nashville, Tennessee, and author of Jesus Outside the Lines and Befriend.) --This text refers to the Paperback edition. Rebekah Lyons is the author of Freefall to Fly: A Breathtaking Journey Toward a Life of Meaning and Founder of Q Women. She is the mother of three, wife of one and a dog walker of two living in Nashville. Rebekah is an old soul with a contemporary, honest voice who puts a new face on the struggles women face as they seek to live a life of meaning.

Review Text

  • By Lindsey Smith on February 21, 2017

    Y'all this book it's amazing! Every chapter has spoken to my heart in some way. If you are broken, hurting, struggling in any way or just feel like you are being called to something more - then you will want to read this book! I have cried, laugh, and written through most of this book.

  • By Sarah E. Koontz on February 21, 2017

    The premise of this book is not “how to get free” it is “how to embrace the freedom you already have.” God sent His Son Jesus Christ to die on the cross for our freedom, yet many Christians struggle to break free from the burdens and bondage of their past. Rebekah Lyons is not preaching from a pulpit, she’s raw and real and ready to walk alongside you as you learn to live in freedom. Her life is messy and complex and relatable. God helped to set her free from anxiety, the performance trap, and her expectations of the picture perfect life. And once she broke free, she discovered that freedom is worth sharing. Her writing style is very much like the cover of this book—clear and easy to understand with a few decorative flourishes.A few of my favorite quotes from the book are:The life of the believer hangs in the balance between the now and the not yet.God cares more about our presence than our performance.The secret to strength is weakness.Freedom is contagious. Freedom helps us set others free.This was the first book of Rebekah’s I have read. I enjoyed getting to know her through her writing and look forward to reading more of her work in the future. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand the freedom that we have in Christ.

    "You Are Free" is simply one of the best books I've ever read, and it was the perfect follow-up to "The Broken Way" by Ann Voskamp. God used this message of freedom to speak straight into the season that I'm in right now. I'm in awe of Him and how He does that! Rebekah's real-life stories are woven together with truth from Scripture and the result is this beautiful book.

    I just finished reading You Are Free. Usually when I finish a book I will look for my next great read, but I will be reading this one again (and maybe again!) It's pages are packed with truth and hope. It will cause you to examine your life at any age (64 anyone?) and realize that when you seek Him, God will never stop pursuing you until you are free. But it's not all about you. We are set free to go and set other captives free, just as Jesus did. Thank you Rebekah Lyons, your honesty and vulnerability in telling your story of deliverance through Christ makes me hunger and thirst for the same. It's never too late to be set free and watch your life be used by God to go do the same.

    Rebekah Lyons shares her heart in a vulnerable way as she describes being rescued from bondage and delivered into FREEDOM in Christ. Absolutely loved this book and highly recommend it!

  • By Ashton Dugger on February 21, 2017

    I cannot recommend this book highly enough. There are few books that I am willing to go out on a limb and say READ THIS BOOK. This is one. If you read it with an open heart and surrender--it will change your life. Not because it is filled with new information, but because it is filled with truth in love and challenging courage from a woman that very clearly sought the heart of our Father when she wrote these words. Her bravery is on display in these pages and she invites you to come alongside her in seeking the Lord in the journey to true freedom.

  • By why on January 16, 2018

    I was drawn to the title and subtitle of this book, which is why I purchased it. Why I'm giving if 2 stars is that it wasn't what I expected. I think my hopes were very high based on the description. There wasn't much biblical reference or some kind of reference to God's truth to stand on. I was able to take away small bits and pieces of insight, but I wanted so much more out of this book than what I was able to get. Finally, I wasn't able to personally relate to the stories shared very much, although I tried. I'm a work a pretty typically 8 to 5 job, come home to my husband, and am involved in church and extra curricular activities. The examples about being able to stop and journal in the middle of the day or meet a girlfriend for a workout and a meal on a weekday just would never happen for me. I hope that this book can help someone or get them a little closer to the truth they seek!

  • By Counting On Grace on March 4, 2017

    Let me start out by saying that I am a slow reader. I like to take my time with hi-lighting, flagging, underlining, making notes, etc. With You Are Free I was able to do the same but I finished the book in three days because I could not put it down! As someone who has personally battled mental illness while inn ministry, I found her words to be solid and balanced while being backed up with scripture. The way she invites the reader in to her own personal life only made it that much more appealing and easy to receive. I texted a friend and told her if I had the money I would buy as many copies as I could and hand them out to any and everyone. I think it should be in every Christian's [and non-Christian] hand. We ALL crave freedom and through Christ we are free. Rebekah's book You Are Free just breaks it all down in such a tangible way. It may also help you to know that I never (maybe two other times) write reviews but I felt so compelled to write this one. If you are sitting on the fence, get off and order this life-changing book.
