Busy Lives and Restless Souls: How Prayer Can Help You Find the Missing Peace in Your Life
Author Becky Eldredge is a busy wife, mother, spiritual director, retreat facilitator, and writer with fifteen years of ministry experience. In short, she’s a busy woman. But she has written this book to share how even people with busy lives can find God every day, in any moment.
Eldredge has a deep affinity for Ignatian spirituality and offers readers an outline of how to apply those principles to daily life. She doesn’t suggest setting aside time for prayer; rather, she recommends seeing God in the midst of your day continuously. Doing a mindless task like dishes or commuting? Why not take the opportunity to seek God in prayer. Taking a walk or going for a run? Recognize God in the beauty of the natural world around you. Once you start, you’ll feel more connected to God than ever as you let Him be part of your daily routine.
This book is written in a conversational and very accessible way, like having a talk with a good friend. If you’ve been yearning for a stronger relationship with God, this book might be a great first step to help you transform your way of thinking to find the peace of God everywhere and anywhere.
Chris Hayden been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
