Work and Rest God’s Way and the accompanying Family Guide are available in paperback! The Family Guide is a FREE ebook.
We spend an average of 90,000 hours, or about ten years, working. Hopefully, we find such a large investment of time and energy enjoyable and fulfilling, but for many people, work is the worst part of their day and of their life:
—Find the blessings God has for you in your labor
—Learn how to put off laziness and put on diligence (both physically and spiritually)
—Discover the quiet, restful life that’s pleasing in God’s sight
Enjoy both work and rest as God intended. Families will benefit from reading together.
Learn the remarkable parallels! Chapter questions make this perfect for personal use or small group studies.
