That something youve been looking for in the empty stress of your mad-dash days? It has a name.
The Psalms call it selahthe pause, rest, or interlude between the notes in a song. More than merely an empty space, selah is a chance to stop and resync with the story and song of God. For all the ways life keeps you running, this word and practice offers a way to re-center yourself on the One who holds all things together and makes all things beautiful.
Stretched beyond her capacity in caring for a large family in the middle of Manhattan, Kristen Kill was exhausted, depressed, and desperate for a change. Then something sparked within her when she read the Psalms, and found that often all that stood between the psalmists cries for help and celebrations of praise was this simple word, selah.
Join Kristen in Finding Selah for a journey that will transform the way you think about work, rest, and the little spaces in between that make all the difference. This book will show you how to tune your ear to the song God is singing over you, embrace the "selah moments" able to transform your daily rhythms, and most of all, encounter the ultimate Selah in Christ, who stands in the gap between heaven and your most hectic of days. There is hope for the dissonance you feel. Finding Selah will show you not only how to sing a new song, but to live a new way.
Kristen Kill is a woman transformed by the delight of God. A contributing editor at The Better Mom, and co-host of At Home, a popular podcast with Sally Clarkson, Kristen is passionate about encouraging women who feel stretched thin with the truth that, even in the tension, God is singing over them with love. After spending the last seven years in the hustle of New York City, Kristen and her husband, Josh, are learning to go slow as they raise their five kids in the Pacific Northwest. Her days are filled with homeschooling, walking her slightly anxious hound dog, and putting off the cleaning for one more day.

AmyL3 Stars Out Of 5Finding SleahMarch 2, 2018AmyLQuality: 5Value: 2Meets Expectations: 1Peace is something I think we all search for. It feels elusive and impossible in a world that says to "go, go, go" all the time. But peace - or as the Bible calls it, Selah - is not as impossible to find as we sometimes believe. Selah is as close as finding ways to center our minds on Christ throughout our day.
In her new book,Finding Selah, Kristen Kill seeks to show the reader how to find peace in the day-to-day of life. Through sharing parts of her story, Kill sought to show the reader how to re-center life on Christ and therefore find peace.
Unfortunately for me, this book fell flat. Going into the book, I thought that I would be shown how to find peace in establishing some specific practices into my life. Instead, Finding Selah was filled with reflective personal stories and moments where Kill was able to find peace in her story.
I can agree with Kill that many of us feel overwhelmed with life, in seasons of depression or are desperate for change. And what I think we truly need is the reminder to add in some pauses to our day. Those true pauses where we stop doing and we sit in the presence of God or take the time to reflect on what God has given us are what will bring us peace.
What I had hoped going into this book would be reminders of places to really stop and pause in my day-to-day. Rather,Finding Selah made me feel a bit more hurried in my life.
If you go into this book looking for the story and not a step-by-step guide, I think you will enjoy this book much more than I did.
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley. This review is my own, honest opinion.
Kristi5 Stars Out Of 5Wonderful for busy momsJanuary 12, 2018KristiQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I was sent a copy of this book free of charge to review it. These opinions are my own.
Have you ever heard of the word Selah? We see it in the Bible, particularly in the book of Psalms. What does it mean? In one definition it means to pause. In this book Finding Selah, Kristen Kill tells a story about her life, her walk with Jesus, and that she learned how important Selah really is in all of these things. Kristen is a super busy mom who's been through some of the toughest things that a mom can go through. Like many of us moms we are constantly faced with a hectic schedule, and the need to get it all done like a superhuman. This causes us moms to burn out, it empties our very souls at times. Learning how to practice Selah helps with this burn out, and if practiced often maybe it will even keep it from happening!
My thoughts on this book
This book is an amazing heart grabber. I feel like Kristen reached into my heart and said "I see you". There's a truth to this story that every mom will say, yep been there.
Reading this book was like being a part of Kristen's life. The ups and downs... It's a story of life, and there is a testimony within that story that all moms should hear. I don't know about you but I love reading stories about other women's lives. It's kind of like living a different life for a moment. Kristen's life story is captivating, and will have you crying at times. You might also cry because you realize that practicing Selah is just what you needed in your life!
Learning how to Selah, is not only going to help me be a better mom, but it will strengthen my walk with God. I recommend this book to all busy moms, and hope they get out of it as much as I did.

As she shares her beautiful testimony of His work in her own life, Kristen helps us apply the lessons she's been given to our own souls. I was often torn between pausing to let the truths simmer or rushing on to discover more of these well-crafted nuggets of truth. Simply a joy to read!
