Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to Me. Get away with Me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me - watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with Me and you'll learn to live freely and lightly. — Matthew 11:28-30 (The Message)
Are you living with the stress of an overwhelmed schedule and aching with the sadness of an underwhelmed soul?
I am the worst blogger! And, Lysa's right... it's mostly because I am overwhelmed with all the busyness of being a full-time single mom (the hardest-BEST job in the world!) with a full-time job! I should have posted this blog a month ago, but I've let my little blog gather dust over here instead. The other day I picked up The Best Yes again and remembered this great conversation we had that I'd love to share with you!
It was such a treat to chat with author Lysa Terkeurst of Proverbs 31 Ministries on FaithGatewayLIVE. If you don't know Lysa, she is a wife to Art and mother of five like me, including two adopted sons from Liberia, Africa. She’s a teacher, a preacher, and she serves and encourages women all over the globe through P31. Among many titles, she’s the author of Becoming More Than a Good Bible Study Girl, What Happens When Women Say Yes to God, Leading Women to the Heart of God, and one of my personal favorites Unglued: Making Wise Choices in the Midst of Raw Emotions.

- The 3 steps to unrush your schedule
