“I feel so overwhelmed.”

Do you race from one thing to the next, unable to keep up with all the demands of your ever-growing to-do list? Are you overcommitted and overstretched, but don’t know how to slow down when the world just says to speed up? Is there any hope for rest in a world of never-ending demands?

Many women don’t realize they’re running at an unsustainable pace until it hurts them physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Drawing on many years of counseling and their own experiences of burnout, wife and husband team Shona and David Murray want to help you slow down to a more grace-paced life—enabling you to avoid the pitfall of burnout, cultivate sustainable habits for the future, and experience the rest of body and soul that God intends for you.

My rating:  4 stars

My review:

I previously reviewed David Murray’s book, Reset, and enjoyed it very much. My “complaint”, if you could call it that, was that that book was really geared toward men, and pastors in particular.  So I was glad to hear that he and his wife had written a companion book for women.

The Murrays speak from experience, and that experience adds a great deal of credibility to their advice and comments regarding the pace of life most of us find ourselves living in these 21st century years.  While you might not find anything earth shattering or life changingly new, this book is biblical, practical, easy to read and follow, and helpful for those who are just feeling a bit out of control – which is almost everyone I know.

While I prefer the Reset book’s content, much of it is duplicated here and also really good.  I encourage you to give this book a read.

I received a Kindle copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own.
