Have you noticed how whenever we ask someone or someone asks us how we are doing. We answer using the word busy. I’m just as guilty of this as anyone! I’m working on it though. I’m in process.
That’s exactly why I am so grateful for Alli Worthington‘s new book Breaking Busy: How to Find Peace And Purpose In A World Of Crazy! Within these pages, she dispels the myths about happiness and having it all together. She leads by example how to live the life that God intended by doing what we were created to do. She teaches us how to live to please God alone and not fall prey to people pleasing and a life of defeat.
Often times, we as women, live a life of busy and striving and trying to be all things to all people. That never ends well. We end up disappointing people and never doing anything well. We become average and complacent. That is most definitely not the life that God intended for us.
I challenge you to allow Alli to guide you in your journey of breaking busy as she reflects on her own mistakes. She discusses topics such as boundaries, relationships and self-care with humor, grace and authenticity. Peace in this busy world is what we are all after.
I pray that Alli and Breaking Busy will serve as a blessings to you as you connect more with God and your loved ones.
