Family Looking Up

Feb 5, 2019

If you are anything like me you are exhausted.  Parents finding rest is an impossible dream. I honestly don’t remember the last time I really had enough rest.

Having said that, there is more to rest than just sleep.  Shaunti Feldhahn is here to talk with us about finding rest, peace, and balance in the busy world that we live in. 

Shaunti received her graduate degree from Harvard University and was an analyst on Wall Street before unexpectedly becoming a social researcher, best-selling author and popular speaker.  Shaunti’s findings are regularly featured in media as diverse as The Today Show and Focus on the Family, The New York Times and Cosmo.  She (often with her husband, Jeff) speaks at 50 events a year around the world. Shaunti and Jeff live in Atlanta with their teenage daughter and son, and two cats who think they are dogs.  Today we are going to be focusing on Shaunti’s book Find Rest: A Women's Devotional for Lasting Peace in a Busy Life.

Being a social researcher led Shaunti to look to science to help fill in the blanks of how to actually find the rest (if the answer wasn’t to stop).  

Being a woman of faith led her to look to God.  

As she started actively looking to both of these sources for guidance she began to see some very interesting correlations between the answers they were each giving.  She ultimately found that patterns in science and scripture boiled down to the same 8 elements of finding rest.

Tune in to hear the 8 elements of finding rest and how they can help you too!
