Finding Spiritual Whitespace Book Review


 About the Book 

Move beyond Surviving to a Rejuvenating Place of Soul Rest

How many of us find ourselves running on empty with no time for rest, no time for ourselves, no time for God?

Bonnie Gray knows what that's like. On the brink of fulfilling a lifelong dream, she saw her plans shatter into a journey through painful memories and anxiety. In her search for answers, she made an important discovery: we all need spiritual whitespace.

Whitespace. It's the space on a page left unmarked. Untouched. Whitespace makes art beautiful. It gives the eye a place to rest. Just like beautiful art, our souls need balance and beauty.

With heartbreaking honesty, Bonnie guides you to discover a better story for yourself, one that feeds your soul and makes room for rest. Infused with biblical encouragement and thought-provoking prompts, this book shows us how to create space in the everyday for God, refreshment, and faith--right in the midst of our stress-frayed lives.

My Review

 I really wanted to love this book. I enjoyed the first few chapters and the cover is beautiful. I found this book to be honest, which I like, and personal. The author made this book to be personal for each person who reads it. After each chapter are questions to ask yourself relating to each topic and then things to talk to God about. 
I wish I could write more about this book but while I enjoyed Bonnie's ideas nothing really stuck out to me aside from the questions at the end of each chapter. In order to really enjoy this book you have to make it personal.

"I received this book from Revell for free in exchange for an honest review."
