Publisher Description

We're raising our kids in a high-speed, high-pressured, 24/7 world. Pushing children to get ahead, we cram everything possible into our days to maximize their chance at success. We're overloaded, overextended, overcommitted, and over-caffeinated. And we're paying a price: Our relationships are anemic; our health, in jeopardy. Half-awake and half-hearted, we can't sustain this pace. But how can we possibly downshift without missing out?

Not So Fast: Slow-Down Solutions for Frenzied Families explores the jarring effects of our over committed culture and offers refreshing alternatives. Author Ann Kroeker relates her own story of how embracing a slower everyday pace resulted in a more meaningful family and spiritual life. Practical ideas and insight will spark creativity and personal reflection. Plus, ponder real-life stories from parents who chucked the high-speed lifestyle and reaped the rewards of richer relationships. Not So Fast offers hope that families struggling with hurried hearts and frantic souls can discover the rejuvenating power of an unrushed life.

Adapted From <i>Not So Fast</i>

What’s behind all this rushing around? Why do we haul our families hither and yon, cramming as much as possible into each day? What compels us to keep up the pace?

Our answers may be all over the place. Some are reasonable motivations; others are questionable. In any case, it’s enlightening, if at times a bit sobering, to dig a little and understand why we’re making these choices. Do our choices glorify God?

Take a deep breath and join me for some self-examination. See if any of these motivations ring true as we ask, Why do we fill up the kids’ schedules?

  • Because it’s safe
  • Because it gives them a competitive edge
  • Because we’re afraid of being seen as sluggards
  • Because it’s the only way to relate
  • Because it sure looks—and feels—good
  • Because it’s all I know

(see Chapter 3 for further explanation of each of these motivations)
