Esther Emery was lost: her marriage was a mess, her career had stalled out, and she didn’t know what to do. So she decided to go off of the internet for a year. A YEAR.
Then she wrote a book about that experience, and it’s gorgeous, thoughtful, and challenging. Her book is called What Falls from the Sky: How I Disconnected from the Internet and Reconnected with the God Who Made the Clouds. It’s so good.
Here’s what Sarah Bessey has to say about Esther’s book:
You’ve never read a book like this one: frankly self-deprecating, boldly complex, intense, joyfully honest, devastatingly beautiful, heartbreakingly funny. What Falls From the Sky is about so much more than one woman’s year without the internet, it’s about marriage and choices, faith and rest, community and family, grief and hope, food and dirt, all the thigns that make our lives worth living. It is impossible to live an unexamined life with Esther as your friend. She is completely herself and so her story sings of freedom within the silence and even within the noise.
I loved my conversation with Esther, and I think you will, too. Get in touch with Esther and all she does by visiting her website.
