Publisher's Description

Add Zest to Your Family with God’s Rest

Seriously, your schedule is hurried, your expectations are extraordinary, and you and your family’s commitments are too many to count. Your relationships with your friends, your family, and your God are suffering.

Ready for a change of pace? Here’s help. Little House on the Freeway takes a look at the breakneck speed at which we live and reveals how to not only put on the brakes, but how to get off the freeway altogether. With a special section, “101 Ways to Give Rest to Your Family” and a new chapter that addresses the perils of the Internet, this timeless classic about the importance of quality family time has been updated to rescue a whole new generation from hurry.

Don’t let busyness, productivity, or the tempation to “keep up with the Joneses” keep you from the peace and incredible quality of relationships God created for you.

“Hurry and busyness are everyday parts of modern life. True priorities of things that matter most may be lost. Little House on the Freeway offers biblical insights and principles to our hurried existence–help from the Word of God for the life being lived in the fast lane.” -Billy Graham

Editorial Reviews

“The Bible says to ‘be still and know God’–a challenge in our harried culture..  This book will help you achieve relational wellness with God, your spouse, and your children.”
Don M. “Bubba” Cathy, Sr. Vice President, Chick-fil-A, Inc.

“Like learning to breathe, blink, or swallow, we assume we’ll automatically know how to rest. But in the rush of today’s world, what was once an automatic response is now an acquired behavior. Tim Kimmel teaches us how to rest…and, therefore, how to live.”
- Elisa Morgan, MOPS International

    Very thought-provoking. A good book to get you moving in the right direction with your family concerning a godly focus and values. As with all books there are things to take away and things to leave alone. However, there are a lot of positive take-aways in this.
