Women today really do feel the weight of the world on their shoulders. Every morning we are greeted with a long list of to-dos: get the kids up and out the door on time, have a meaningful quiet time, put in a full day of work (whether at home or at the office), spend an hour at the gym, prepare a healthy and delicious meal (organic and locally grown, of course), and make sure the sink sparkles before you go to bed. Oh, and don’t forget to look great and smile while you’re doing it.
These are all good things to do, of course. The problem occurs when we start to feel as if our worth is measured by our to-do lists. And the messages we receive at church, on Facebook, and from the media only perpetuate these unrealistic expectations and create a relentless cycle of exhaustion.
There is hope!
God doesn’t judge us by how successful we are with our to-do lists. Instead, He calls us to faith.
As you join Elyse on this journey, you will learn to free yourself from the endless stream of bad advice and discover the true rest God offers.
