  1. Ruth Darling says:

    Thank you so much for this Podcast. It is the first one I have ever listened to! Yes, the Lord is definitely stirring me to find spiritual whitespace this holiday season. Bonnie so aptly put it into words for me . . . God has been “stirring” me to give myself permission to disconnect from the stressors and pursue Him. I find Him by listening to other peoples’ testimonies that are kindred in spirit and through their words of encouragement. Thanks to you all for being part of my whitespace team. -Ruth Darling

Finding Spiritual Whitespace: Awakening Your Soul to Rest

How many of us find ourselves exhausted, running on empty with no time for rest, no time for ourselves, no time for God? Bonnie Gray knows exactly what that’s like. On the brink of fulfilling a lifelong dream, Bonnie’s plans suddenly went off script. Her life shattered into a debilitating journey through anxiety, panic attacks, and insomnia. But as she struggled to make sense of it all, she made an important discovery: we all need spiritual whitespace.

Spiritual whitespace makes room–room in one’s heart for a deep relationship with God, room in one’s life for rest, room in one’s soul for rejuvenation. With soul-stirring vulnerability and heartbreaking honesty, Bonnie takes readers on a personal journey to feed their souls and uncover the deeper story of rest. Lyrical writing draws readers into Gray’s intimate journey through overwhelming stress to find God in a broken story and celebrate the beauty of faith.
