Rhythms of Rest: A Book Review

About The Book:

This book is for anyone who is weary--who longs for rest but doesn't know how to make it a reality. Shelly Miller, a sought-after mentor on Sabbath-keeping, shows how even busy people can implement a rhythm of rest into their lives--from small windows of time to a whole morning or day. With encouraging stories from people in different stages in life, Miller shares practical advice for not only finding physical refreshment but also restoring your soul. You will learn:

· Simple ways to be intentional about rest
· Ideas for tuning out distractions and tuning in to God
· How meals and other times with friends and family can be Sabbath experiences

Sabbath is a gift from God to be embraced, not a spiritual hoop to jump through. Discover how genuine rest is possible today.

Her writing has been featured in publications internationally. Shelly and her husband recently moved from the U.S. to London, England, where they resource church planting efforts.

My Review:

Rest. Sabbath. Peace.

These words and actions do not honestly come that easily to most of us. Yet it is exactly what we need. We need to get past the idea of constantly doing and grasp the idea of rest and renewal that can only come from resting in Him. Sabbath is not just once a week, it can happen, and should happen, daily. This book was incredibly encouraging as I read it and was reminded just how desperate I was for true Sabbath. As a result of reading it, I have become far more in tune of when my soul and body need that Sabbath and am far more apt to take that rest, more than I did before. Its so good for me to focus on Him and what is truly important, even if its only a few minutes a day. 

I give this book a huge thumbs up and highly recommend it!
