Not the Boss of Us
Too much to manage and not enough time or energy to do it? Join the club. Life is a pressure cooker and, more and more, being overwhelmed is just considered normal. But, truth be told, life's stresses and circumstances aren't the boss of us. What if we could take Overwhelmed and diffuse it--or, better yet, reframe it to good?
Author, blogger, and mother of five Kay Wills Wyma has learned that if we're going to be overwhelmed by anything, let's have it be Truth with all its grace, hope, peace, and love. In this freeing book, she shares how to confront life's pressures we face--at home, online, at work, in our relationships, on our calendars--and replace all those heavy expectations with the liberating truth that we were made for something better. Through her inspiring personal stories sprinkled with a dash of humor, she gives readers permission to step back, let go, and find fulfillment and freedom in a life lived in light of eternity.
My thoughts: This book is excellent! As a mother of two young children, it's so easy to put too much on my plate. This book was so encouraging! I especially appreciated how open Kay is in the chapter about forgiveness. Sometimes it is so easy to get caught up in how things affect me, but the reminder to remember what other people are going through was spot on. I love how the book has quotes, stories from history, and ways to practice rest and peace.
I received this book from Revell. This is my honest review.
