Our church recently did a study on this book. The focus on living is not on perfection or business, but enjoying life as it is one breath at a time. No more worries to work faster, push harder and produce more. This year more than ever I have felt overwhelmed and exhausted trying to work to produce all the time. Rest, read and be inspired!
