Product Description

Patty Kirk knows what it's like to try to impress God. It's like beating the air and bruising your soul. In The Easy Burden of Pleasing God she reminds us, through stories and reflections and careful meditation on the Scriptures, that despite what we may have heard or told ourselves, the yoke we take on as we follow Jesus is easy, and the burden of a loving God is light. To all of us who pursue perfection in vain and ache with the defeat that follows, The Easy Burden of Pleasing God will be truly good news.

Publisher's Description

Through personal stories and careful meditation on Scripture, award-winning writer Patty Kirk urges our uncertain and ever-burdened souls back into the awareness of the Lord's gentle yet unceasing demand to live in love.

Editorial Reviews

"Have you ever seen the parent of a wee kindergartner grab the handle atop a heavy backpack and lift the load while the child continues to walk on, weightless? Reading this book is like that. Through Kirk's hand, Another lifts the burden you and I have been hauling around too long. And it feels fantastic."
"Patty Kirk takes us on a journey from the kitchen to the church to the university classroom (with spouses, colleagues, children, families and dogs along) for a series of engaging vignettes built around Scripture that altogether encourage us that following Jesus should be something that emerges naturally as we believe and rest in him. She stirs us on to a faith that she likens to the first few seconds of Peter's incredible walk with Jesus on the water."
"Patty Kirk's Easy Burden is a refreshing and wise mix of deep faith, common sense and excellent writing."
"I adore this little book. It is somehow simultaneously challenging and comforting. Whether you are new in the life of faith, newly again in the life of faith or an old hand, Patty Kirk's wisdom—served up in prose that is the best kind of clear, and served up with humor and personality—will edify. In short, The Easy Burden of Pleasing God is a keeper, by which I mean a book I will keep going back to, and by which I mean a book that will help keep me in the company of God."
