I'd forgotten to breathe in life and Light in the middle of mothering, marriage, and messy life. Click To Tweet

In a year marked by personal and global change, I’ve been forced to slow down. To stop making excuses and finally consider whether or not I’m stewarding my time and body well. When I read Kelly Balarie’s new book, Rest Now: 7 Ways to Say No, Set Boundaries, and Seize Joy, it was as I though I recognized my reflection in the mirror.

I’d forgotten to breathe in life and Light in the middle of mothering, marriage, and messy life. If you can relate, you may want to pick up a copy of Balarie’s book. It is a guide for getting away with Christ and learning to rest in Him. You’ll discover how to rest in weakness, forgiveness, humility, and more.

To cultivate what is most important is to live a life of great importance. Click To Tweet

Quote: “To cultivate what is most important is to live a life of great importance. Then moments have meaning. We give ourselves permission to be where we are. When we’re with our family, we can truly be with them. And when we’re with God, we’ll really be with God.”

 

Julie Lavender has created a go-to guide for every parent, grandparent, teacher, or any other person who enjoys spending time with little ones. Whether you’re stuck inside, far from home, snuggling, or playing games, you’ll find a variety of ways to engage that special child and brighten his days with moments that will last a lifetime.

This book would be a perfect shower gift or stocking stuffer! I highly recommend it.

Favorite Idea: Go for an outside prayer walk with your child. Pray aloud, thanking God for the provision of a roof over your heads and the love of family.

 

 

 

Practicing the Power of Prayer: Welcoming the Gifts of the Holy Spirit in Your Life by Sam Storms was a thought-provoking year marked by personal and global change, I’ve been forced to slow down, faith-stretching book. It’s the sort of “meaty” book I’ll read again because it isn’t quickly digested. Storms brings depth to topics almost all Christians can agree on, such as prayer, while tackling more controversial subjects, like prophecy.

Whether you agree or disagree with Storms, this book is sure to challenge your views of how the Holy Spirit operates.
