JohnnyLafayette, TNAge: 45-54Gender: Male5 Stars Out Of 5Ladies...READ THIS BOOK!!!January 16, 2018JohnnyLafayette, TNAge: 45-54Gender: MaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5So what do you do when you order a book that was written for women only and you are a guy? You read it because you have women in your life. Im married to one, the father of one, and pastor many. Because of this fact I pushed on to read the book Refresh: Embracing a Grace-Paced Life in a World of Endless Demands written by David and Shona Murray and published by Crossway. This book written primarily from the point of view of Shona Murray is a companion to David Murrays earlier book Reset: Living a Grace-Paced Life in a Burnout Culture, which was written primarily to men.
This book was written out of Shonas personal experience with depression and lies heavily on the material that David wrote in his earlier book. In this book Murray speaks out of her experience and shows how she would go on to refresh her own life in what she has coined as the grace-paced life. She invites the reader to come to her Refresh Gym and learn this life.
Murray believes that the life of trying to meet every demand thrown at us is not healthy and leads you down some dark roads. In this book she offers an alternative where you are refreshed along the way. Using the analogy of what she calls the refresh gym she covers different areas that a lady can go down to refresh herself in the grace of God.
The author has given us a well written guide here. Each chapter is extremely practical and is extremely Biblical. You can tell that this author has spent time contemplating the Word and everything she writes is scripturally based. You can also tell that she has spent a great deal of time reading on each subject to which her chapters are based. She doesnt just tell you to rest, but she goes through great lengths to show you the value of it.
Her goal is to get a person back to resurrection life, the place that she found herself at once again. She doesnt shy away from the difficult and controversial subjects either. She bravely gives her opinion on subjects that she knows will rub others the wrong way. I believe that she has done this with great expertise.
Having received this book has made me want to read the companion volume penned by her husband. This is a book that is so desperately needed in our world of fast paced living. I hope to pass this on to the ladies in my life. Although Im a guy I have committed myself to making some needed changes as well.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
