Finding rest in summer
Summer’s here! Time for fun, right? Well … maybe, but work keeps right on going. Kids are home, laundry’s piling up, and that car doesn’t pack itself for vacation. Finding rest in summer might seem out of reach.
It’s hard to carve out time for rest, even in the summer, but God gives us some rich encouragement in His Word. Amy shares a scripture that will feed your soul and an action step that will help create your best, most restful summer yet.
Life is noisy. What would happen if every day – for the next 40 days – you soaked in God’s love as He intimately whispered words of rest just for you?
Kathi talks with Bonnie Gray, author of Whispers of Rest: 40 Days of God’s Love to Revitalize Your Soul . Kathi and Bonnie discuss why it’s difficult for women to carve out time to take care of themselves. From our deep rooted need to take care of everyone else first. Even after everyone else is cared for we resist and hold back from caring for ourselves. We have a sense of guilt about taking care of our own needs.
Bonnie gives us some great suggestions on how to inject pockets time into your life to spend with God and beautiful things in your life.
Bonnie is giving away two books to our listeners. Just leave a comment within the next 7 days and tell us how you are going to inject a pocket of rest into your day.
Two listeners will be selected at random to receive a copy of Whispers of Rest.
Book Giveaway only available for our US listeners.
Kathi talks with guest, Bekah Pogue about her book, Choosing Real, An Invitation to Celebrate When Life Doesn’t Go as Planned. When life isn’t really following the plan, there are beautiful things still happening all around us. These two energetic authors and speakers discuss how to use the 5 senses to discover joy in the simplest of things and celebrate life on a daily basis.
Bekah explains one of the important questions she asks herself when considering an activity or obligation: “Am I sacrificing my sanity or my family to make this happen?” Maybe you can relate. Join in this refreshing conversation and find some beauty in your everyday.
