I started the year with a phrase, a motto, I guess you could say.
My life was plagued by lack of focus and distractions were stealing my time. I felt disconnected and overstimulated. I was wasting time and rushing around till I was crazy.

So I started the year with a plan: simple but so complex.


As I’ve journeyed through the past nine months, I’ve learned more than I thought there was to know. But more than anything, I’ve learned how much I still have to learn. And in spite of the growth I’ve seen, I’m crawling into this month a little broken, a little tender, and a little tired.

So I’m joining in with The Nester to write for 31 days. Everyday for the month of October I’ll be writing on this one topic…

Work Hard + Rest Well: Learning Obedience in the Rhythms of Work and Rest

I’m writing about this because I need it.
I’m writing about work because I still too often try to split my energies and end up fractured and fragmented with very little to show for my strain.
I’m writing about rest because I still too often spend my work times resting in ways that don’t refresh and my rest times worrying that I should be working.

Are you there?
Are you feeling fragmented and fractured?
Are you feeling a little broken, a little tender, and a little tired?
Are you feeling disconnected and overstimulated at the same time?

Join me on this journey.
It will be a little bit of practical work and a whole lot of heart work.
I’m needing it. And I’m excited.
