"Leeana Tankersley's Found Art is a brave look at the battle within. . . . Her struggles with her own faith and the meaning of it will strike a chord with anyone who picks up this book. Whether or not your faith in God is strong, it is the journey of looking for faith in yourself that will keep you reading." --Ethos Magazine, a publication of Naval Special Warfare
“Leeana’s story is extraordinary, and so is her storytelling ability. As I finished Found Art, I felt like I had made a friend and that together we had traveled long distances, both around the world and into a deeper understanding of what it means to be a woman of faith---many different kinds of faith. Her story is at once so foreign and so familiar, because the power of her writing is so compelling.” -- Shauna Niequist

Rarely do I pick up a book and read until completion....this was one of them.
It is o.k. and is a bit child like.
More of a diary type and self centered.
I think if you wrote your own diary of your life's travels and journeys it may be more interesting.
I would not recommend anyone buying it.
Borrow a copy from the library instead.
You could clearly see Leeana's love for her husband and her Lord as she continued her journey of self discovery. Every description, interaction and thought let you deeper into her soul and relationship with God. It was almost as if you were sneaking a peak into her very heart and soul. In Found Art she was not only finding the beauty of God around her but in herself. It was as if you were reading the journal of a very personal friend.
But it was that aspect that also led me to a different reaction. If you ever read the journal of a friend you know that there are times in life that seemrather mundane. At times in Found Art...I found myself glazing over the words she had written. While her descriptions were beautiful and sincere they were at times a bit too much. I wanted her to get to the point of her experience and not just the scenery around it.
I think the true beuaty of this book would be wholly appreciated by other wives and mothers of militray men. I applaud Leeana for her truth and desire to grow closer to God but did not feel completely moved or taken in by Found Art.
