The Power of Rest: How to Stop Doing, Start Being and Soar Through Life
The purpose of this campaign is to raise the funds necessary to cover the professional costs of publishing and distributing a quality book. I know, from first hand experience, that the power of rest is such that it will truly transforms lives. On April 15, 2011, I committed to living an intentional life full of joy and peace. I didn’t know exactly what that meant or how to get there but I knew that I was embarking on a journey that would forever change me. In the process, my worlds would collide. No longer would my professional life, personal life, and community life be separate entities. Likewise, my faith would come crashing into the marketplace. Throughout all the change and the ups and down, a critical habit – what I call rest – emerged. Before this journey, I didn’t truly understand what rest was or why it mattered. In fact, I would’ve thought of rest as laziness or as a lack of passion or motivation. However, my journey taught me otherwise. Different aspects of that journey are shared in this book as we explore the concept of rest in more detail and learn why its a critical habit for every person in every walk of life.
So, why the campaign? It’s really simple: I need the upfront capital to engage a handful of professionals to give this book the polished finished that it deserves. The book has a compelling message and I don’t want that to get lost in subpar artwork or unprofessional editing or hastily put together jacket copy. I want to make sure that this book gets into the hands of all that could benefit. While I could try to do it all myself, I’ve come to appreciate my limits and I’m getting a lot better at asking for help. So, I thank you for helping to make this dream a reality.
