Book Nook: Whispers of Rest

There's no doubt about it - today's world is pretty crazy, pretty intense, and often times it can be hard to keep up. When we're juggling all of our different roles, or even all of the tasks that fall within one role, it's easy to let some things slide - and often, that's time for our own relaxation, our own time to recharge.

Whispers of Rest: 40 Days of God's Love to Revitalize Your Soul helps break that habit. This 40-day devotional, encourages readers to listen to God's still, small voice, recognizing that it's hard to find Him in the chatter and noise of life, but easier in the pause.

Even if you don't feel like you have time for a devotional, this one can fit into any busy life. The readings aren't terribly long and take only a few  minutes. But to encourage the message to really sink in, there are journaling prompts for reflection, tips to reduce stress and revitalize mind and spirit, challenges to help create a fresh mindset, and prayer prompts to spark a conversation with God.

I like that this book isn't just reading. It's too easy to skim quickly through a reading and be done, without really letting things sink in. By encouraging action, focused prayer, and reflection, this book really helps get the reader into a restful mindset, a mood that carries throughout the whole day.
