Greenville College is pleased to announce that Rebekah Lyons will visit campus on Thursday, Mar. 20 and Friday, Mar. 21. A celebrated author and speaker, Lyons is best known for her work on topics including: womanhood, faith, mental health, leadership and calling. 

Freefall to Fly Book CoverLyons' first book, Freefall to Fly: A Breathtaking Journey Toward a Life of Meaning, published in 2013, (Tyndale) is a chronicle of her own struggles and triumphs along a path to discover purpose and overcome the difficulties that she faces as a woman, wife, mother and Christian. Through vulnerable and honest reflections about her story, Lyons invites readers to surrender their burdens and fall into the grace and love of God; to find their identity in Christ instead of the expectations assigned to women in Western society.
