How do we experience rest? Our new book explores this question and its qualities for our lives, rhythms, and conventions today. 

God rests. From the very beginning, rest is marked with sacred significance among all of creation. God calls individuals and communities alike into lives, rhythms, and conventions of rest. More than a mere afternoon nap, rest is a holy orientation and divine chronology that completes life as we know it. Just as God rests, we rest with God.

This book is meant to move us towards rest, into recovering its wisdom and consequence in our lives. As we contemplate and practice these many qualities of rest, may our personal lives be rejuvenated, our families strengthened, and our communities reoriented towards justice and peace. And may we rest with God. Amen.

Towards Rest

I love this book - I am very much on a journey to slow down my day-to-day. I really connected with the narrative of this book and at the same time felt a stronger connection to God and His true intentions for our lives. I found it very easy to read and it was something I looked forward to every evening as part of my wind down time at night.

I really appreciated the scriptural emphasis and thoughtful exploration of the woman with the alabaster box. I didn't feel that any of the insights were a "stretch" so to speak. I found the discussion to be both convicting and inspiring, and something I'm sure I'll find myself revisiting in the months and years to come.

All That Is Made Review

Absolutely wonderful! I’m reading it and rereading it. I look at my creative process differently now, on a much deeper and connected level. The design is beautiful. The writing, outstanding. Thank you for your faith and dedication to inspire others.

Perfect Summer Read

This book is both beautiful and filled with abundant peace. It brought new insights and thoughts, Biblically based, around the subject of rest. Our culture has steeped us into productivity and hustle; this book calls us to know the Good Shepherd and rest in His way.

Deep connection to inner truths

So impressed with this small yet powerful publication! The truths hit hard and deep and let me know it was ok to think and feel the way I do Because I am not alone! Creativity is part of all our spirits! And creating connects us to the Almighty and is one of the most natural things we can do! I had to read and meditate on these truth in small bites, like eating a rich decadent dessert or sipping a fine glass of wine. To truly appreciate what this book brought to me it needed to be savored!
