When was the last time you had rest? True rest that allows you to feel relaxed and ready for your next challenge (or ready to referee the next argument between your children)? Do you feel you are an overworked, over busy, overscheduled, and overwhelmed mom? In Rest Assured: A Recovery Plan for Weary Souls, Vicki Courtney will help you understand why you always feel so busy and overwhelmed and offer you practical ideas to stop the overwhelm and get the rest you need.
In Rest Assured: A Recovery Plan for Weary Souls, you will find that you are not alone in your feelings of overwhelm and your desire for rest.
You will learn why you don’t need to feel “busyness” is something to be prized and desired. You will also learn how to disconnect from all your devices that are distracting you and keeping you from rest, why and how to create true leisure time.
Vicki will also show you how we exhaust ourselves pursuing happiness or what we think will make us happy. She will give you a better plan to be happy.
Rest Assured: A Recovery Plan for Weary Souls will help you apply the concepts from each chapter by including reflection questions and applications you can start right away. You don’t want to miss the 30-day restoration guide at the end of the book and my favorite section, “100 Ways to Give It a Rest.”
I enjoyed reading this book and found I connected with many of the examples Vicki shared. Her advice is practical and things I could do even in with my busy schedule. If you feel overwhelmed and tired, Rest Assured: A Recovery Plan for Weary Souls would be a great book for you.
