Rest Assured Review Review


About the Book

Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest (Matt. 11:28

Women are overcommitted, overconnected, overburdened, and overwhelmed. Their lives are full, but oddly, their souls are empty. They are aching for a bold challenge one that will bring rest to their longing souls.Rest Assuredis for the daring women who truly want to disrupt their current patterns and see lasting change.

Divided into two parts, Rest Assuredoffers not just an intervention: The Badge of Busyness The Exhausting Pursuit of Happiness Tethered Souls Worried Sick

But also a recovery plan: Prioritize the One Thing Needed: Time for God Create Room to Breathe: Time for Solitude Give Yourself a Break: Time for Leisure Pay It Forward: Time for Others

If the soul is weary, it s time for an intervention.Rest Assuredis not a quick fix, but rather a bold challenge that aids women in identifying the negative patterns that prevent them from experiencing rest in their souls. Most importantly, it will give them the tools needed to break the cycle.

A Rest Stop challenge is included at the end of each chapter for use in Bible studies and book clubs. Bonus material includes a 30-Day Restitution Plan and 100 Ways to Give It a Rest." (Goodreads)

My Thoughts

I have done a study by Vicki and this book has a similar writing style. She is very honest and shares her own personal stories within the book about her busy life. We all need rest, but more than that we need to not overload our every day lives which is essentially what this book is about. Each chapter has "homework" you can complete to make it more personal to you. The thing that really stood out to me with this book is the huge list in the back. It includes ways in which to "rest" such as watching a sunset or planting a garden. I think this list gives ideas for your own creative thoughts so you can add to it. 
The main thing is while many of us have probably heard about what she is saying in this book before, Vicki makes it applicable to our own lives. 

Four stars.
