Our current culture is producing anxiety-ridden and stressed-out people. The busyness of our lives, as well as certain strongholds and thinking patterns, can prevent us from connecting with God and finding His peace. Living in God's Rest is a guide to letting go of the tensions and worries that chain us down and relaxing in His love and redemption. When we know how to enter into that divine place of rest, we can find ourselves at peace, no matter what is happening all around us.
"Thank you, Nancy, for this powerful book. God will use this to lift the heavy yokes of stress, fear, and anxiety off of people's hearts and find rest in Him. Living in God's Rest is an amazing book."--Dale Walker, author, Kissing the Face of God and pastor, Heart for the World Church and Ministries
"Living in God's Rest is a practical guide to learning to relax into God's loving arms. Nancy LaPointe's personal story combined with usable information brings 'letting go and letting God' so much closer. This book is indeed a blessing for us all." --Sandi Browne, author, Touch the Sky ... the Story of a Mom, a Wife, an Airshow Pilot and Wingrider
"Living in God's Rest is a powerful book about biblical rest, a book that all of us involved in caring for a broken world need to read. Not so that we will stop working, God forbid; on the contrary, as we rest in Him, we become all the more productive at advancing the Kingdom of God on this earth. Nancy offers an enormous gift of encouragement to those of us 'spending ourselves on behalf of the hungry' and I treasure her words of wisdom."--Vicki Penwell, author, Down Mercy Road and founder of Mercy In Action-Philippines

Tell us a little about yourself. I am a retired Christian counselor and pastor, living in the beautiful mountains of New Mexico.
What was your motivation behind this project? Through some very difficult trials, the Lord continually impressed upon me to 'rest in Him'. This message caused me to research and study what resting really means, when in the context of resting in Him. It was a life changing experience.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I have already received some wonderful testimonies of those who have read the book and begun to put the principles into practice. My prayer is that we would all learn to be at peace no matter how stressful life is all around us. It is possible!
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? Step by step, as I studied, prayed and wrote about my journey, my tension and stress began to leave and my ability to give my worries to God and leave them there became apparent.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I love books on prayer, especially from writers such as Francis Frangipane, Andrew Murray and E. M. Bounds, to name just a few.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: My work with healing prayer ministry has taught me much about people's struggles and how the Lord works in a unique way with each individual. I hope the book is a blessing and also that some would leave a review. SO appreciate my readers!
