Enjoying God’s Gifts of Work and Rest
“I know what it means to have Jesus set me free from stress and striving. If that’s what you long for too, Glynnis is here to help. Her words are a lifeline for the worn-out and weary.”–Holley Gerth, Wall Street Journal bestselling author of You’re Already Amazing
Does this sound familiar? When you’re busy, you feel guilty you aren’t spending time with family or God. Then, when you try to rest, you feel guilty because there’s so much left to do. It’s an endless cycle of overwork and exhaustion.
Enough is enough! In this burden-lifting book, Glynnis Whitwer helps you examine your heart and your schedule in order to seek a healthy, holy, and enjoyable balance between work and rest. She shows you how to prioritize your goals and your time, how to be present in the moment as Jesus was, and how to find the freedom of true soul rest. Most importantly, she shows you that your worth is found not in your accomplishments but in the love of the One who made you for work and for rest.
“There is a good kind of busy that leads to a peaceful, productive, fulfilling life. But there’s also a bad kind of busy that throws you into overdrive and unravels your purpose. Doing Busy Better will help you tell the difference between the two, liberating your schedule and your soul.”–Arlene Pellicane, speaker and author of 31 Days to Becoming a Happy Mom
“Is there a better way to do busy? Yes! Read this book. You’ll be encouraged, validated, and inspired to redeem the time in a way that fits who God made you to be and what He’s called you to do.”–Susie Larson, talk radio host, national speaker, and author of Your Powerful Prayers
