Product Details


“Is your soul tired and worn out? Do you need a new way to live? Christy Nockels is a gentle, strong voice shepherding us into a fuller life with Jesus at the very center. This book will restore your weary soul.”—Jennie Allen, New York Times bestselling author of Get Out of Your Head and founder and visionary of IF:Gathering

“I have waited and waited for Christy Nockels to write a book. It was worth the wait!”—Beth Moore, speaker, Bible teacher, and bestselling author

“This must-read book is a lovely invitation to lean more fully into the unconditional love of Jesus Christ and to lean with more authentic compassion into the lives of other image bearers.”—Lisa Harper, author and speaker

“Christy Nockels has spurred us on for years through her music and now does so through her own story, and I believe it’s right on time. For all of us who know the tension between what’s expected of us and what we really long for, Christy gently leads us into true freedom.”—Ruth Chou Simons, mom to six boys and bestselling author of Beholding and Becoming

“As I was reading The Life You Long For, I felt like I was having coffee with a sweet friend who was constantly reminding me and my heart to rest—not just any sort of rest, but resting in God’s love for me and His plans for me.”—Jamie Ivey, bestselling author and host of The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey podcast

“Christy Nockels is a deep, deep well, and I so appreciate the honesty and vulnerability in her book, The Life You Long For. I know it will help you discover the intimacy with God that we all crave and were made for.”—Chris Tomlin, singer and songwriter

“In the hustle and grind of life, we can mistakenly believe that our good works and effort curry favor with God. The Life You Long For is a song for us to learn and sing in our own harmony so our souls can be set free.”—Bianca Juarez Olthoff, speaker, teacher, and bestselling author of How to Have Your Life Not Suck

“Before I met Christy Nockels, I was shaped by her songs and ministry. Once I got to know her personally, I was more deeply affected by her life and friendship, especially her intimate relationship with the Lord. The Life You Long For is a compilation of all our coffee dates, late-night chats, long-distance phone calls, and heartfelt emails. If you’ve ever wanted to sit across from her and glean wisdom from her years of faithful adoration of and intimacy with Jesus, read this book.”—Lauren Chandler, author, worship leader, and songwriter

“As a friend, I’ve watched Christy Nockels live this message in real time, pouring truth into these pages. This book will help you recover your life!”—Rebekah Lyons, bestselling author of Rhythms of Renewal
