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 Not So Fast▼▲
Our answers may be all over the place. Some are reasonable motivations; others are questionable. In any case, its enlightening, if at times a bit sobering, to dig a little and understand why were 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 its safe
- Because it gives them a competitive edge
- Because were afraid of being seen as sluggards
- Because its the only way to relate
- Because it sure looksand feelsgood
- Because its all I know
(see Chapter 3 for further explanation of each of these motivations)
