Publisher's Description

Are you exhausted? Women today really do feel the weight of the world on their shoulders. Every morning we are greeted with a long list of to-dos: get the kids up and out the door on time, have a meaningful quiet time, put in a full day at the office, spend an hour at the gym, prepare a healthy and delicious meal (organic and locally grown, of course), and make sure the sink sparkles before you go to bed. Oh, and don’t forget to look great and smile while you’re doing it. These are all good things to do, of course. But the bigger problem occurs when we start to feel as if our worth is measured by our to-do lists. And the messages we receive at church, on Facebook, and from the media only perpetuate these unrealistic expectations, creating a relentless cycle of exhaustion. As Elyse Fitzpatrick has traveled this country, she has seen increasing evidence of this weariness epidemic invading our churches and communities. And she has good news for women everywhere: there is hope! God doesn’t judge us by our to-do lists. Instead, He calls us to faith. Free yourself today from the endless stream of bad advice and discover the true rest God offers.

    Review: Over all it was an easy read. I liked the reminder of not working for salvation. My favorite examples were the personal ones. I think that many of the examples were all the same complaint and therefore sometimes repeating things. The part I think that gets forgotten is that there is to be a changed life after Christ came into my life. That the Christian life is more challenging than prior to my conversion. There is no getting around that because while not looking to win more favor I am running a race to finish the Christian life by striving to see Christ more, that can not be done if my thoughts and heart are tied to this world. There is a tension that can not be overcome except by prayer and leaning on Christ

    I would like to thank Net Galley and Tyndale House for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and I was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone.

    If you've been a reader of my blog for any amount of time, you know this past year has been especially hard for me. Weary was a perfect way to explain me. So when I saw this book come up for review, I knew I just had to read it!

    Every woman knows that there are certain expectations of us. Our houses must always be spotless, without any knickknacks out of place, not a speck of dust anywhere, and it must smell of fresh cut flowers. Our meals must be prepared all by hand from only the freshest ingredients. That's tiring just reading it y'all! The expectations aren't realistic but nonetheless, it leaves us feeling incompetent. So how do we overcome these expectations poured on us as women?

    Oh, how this book was needed! Elyse basically says that these expectations do little more than make us feel worthless. Can I get an Amen!! They certainly don't encourage us at all. They take our attention from what really matters, Gods expectations of us. What are His two instructions to us? To Love Him and Love others. He wants us to believe in Him. He didn't say "you're only a good Christian girl if you make all your meals gluten free, wear well put together outfits and clean your house from top to bottom daily".

    This book was so encouraging! I would highly recommend it to all women!

    Thank you to Tyndale Publishers for a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
