In this quasi-autobiographical account, he relates how God is actively working in his world, orchestrating the events in our lives for his glory.

Through the Eyes of a Lion: Facing Impossible Pain, Finding Incredible Power
by: Thomas Nelson
Product rating: 4.9 with 45 reviews
What will you do when the unthinkable happens in your life?
Her parents called her Lenya Lion because of her ferocious personality and hair that had been wild and mane-like since birth. But they never expected that, five days before Christmas, their five-year-old daughter would suddenly go to heaven after an asthma attack. How do you walk out of an emergency room without your daughter?
In Through the Eyes of a Lion, Pastor Levi Lusko shares the eye-opening truth of the power of hope in a world that is often filled with pain, suffering, and loss. He says, “This book isn’t a manual for grieving, but a manifesto for high-octane living, and through it I want you to see that God made you for a purpose. There is a wild and wonderful calling on your life, a microphone in your hands. Jesus wants you to look at the adventure of your life through His eyes, the eyes of a Lion.”
Part memoir but all overtly instructive and deeply inspirational, Through the Eyes of a Lion gives readers the tools they need to face their fears and turn their journey into a roar story.
Chapter themes include:
- Don’t rely on the naked eye
- Run towards the roar
- There’s no such thing as a wireless anchor
- Let God use your pain
- Cue the eagle
What we do in life really does echo in eternity. You are destined for impact, and there’s not a moment to lose!
