Product Description

By rhythm we dance, sing, clap, walk, breathe, live.
But the Giver of rhythm sometimes calls up past the patterns and habits we have established for ourselves into new understanding, new risk, new faith, hope and love.
In those moments we have to decide where to place our trust: in God or in our precious rhythms.
Spoken word artist Amena Brown has made rhythm her life's work. Read Breaking Old Rhythms and be reminded, and encouraged, that while God has rhythm, God is love, and God's love carries us beyond our rhythms into a fuller, more fulfilling life.

Publisher's Description

"When two fighters of equal ability and speed are matched . . . there is a greater advantage to the one who knows how to break the rhythm." -Bruce Lee Rhythm is a blessing. By rhythm we dance, sing, clap, walk and breathe. Beyond the blessing is the Giver of Rhythm, who sometimes calls us past the patterns and habits we have established for ourselves into new understanding, new risk, new faith, hope and love. In those moments we have to decide where to place our trust: in God or in our precious rhythms. Spoken word poet Amena Brown has made rhythm her life's work. In Breaking Old Rhythms she explores how we discover by rhythm both our God-given limitations and potential, and the ways we limit God's work in our lives. Read this book and be reminded, and encouraged, that while God has rhythm, God is love, and God's love carries us beyond our rhythms into a fuller, more fulfilling life.

Editorial Reviews

"Sculpting and painting words into eloquent and raw poetry seems to be the breath of Amena Brown. Breaking Old Rhythms is a call for all who find themselves stuck in the mundane, drawing us to risk, push and open our full potential--all the while realizing we have and always will be completely seen and completely loved by the One who started the creating."
"Amena Brown uses words to fill the soul like music. In Breaking Old Rhythms she creatively explores the idea that we all have a life rhythm, and that God is often found in the most unexpected places."
" Breaking Old Rhythms reminds us of God's passion to rewrite the soundtracks of our lives with faithful, redemptive love. Warm, poignant and deeply soulful, Amena Brown invites us into her story, showing us how to let go and embrace God. Spoken word indeed."
"Amena Brown's soulful, joyful, beautiful voice is a true gift to anyone who has the privilege of hearing it. This work is no exception, and I found myself so refreshed by the unique way Amena shares her personal journey and passion for Jesus. This book is inspiring, encouraging and challenging--a true wake-up call to the highest end of becoming who God has created you to be. Amena is not willing to settle for old rhythms or worn-out, hopeless patterns, and refuses to let anyone else to settle either. Poetry, song lyrics, stories, photos, ideas, joy, sadness and deep imagery make for a beautiful work written, so that by the end you feel as if you know both Amena and yourself that much better. This book was a joy to read!"
"Through her beautiful style and thoughtful expression, Amena artfully fractured my structured rhythm to challenge me to consider a new perspective of God's work in my life and faith."
Amena fuses God's truth with the reality of the rhythms of life. . . . [She] challenges us to not settle for less than the beauty of what God creates us each to be.
"Amena Brown is a gift--a breathtaking blend of poet, prophet and pioneer. Her life and words will bless your soul."
