Spread Too Thin

As you navigate through the joys and challenges of the summer, are you attempting “to be all things to all people?” or “all things to a few people?”

Is guilt nipping at your heels? 

Male or female, this week’s article (from Today’s Christian Woman October, 2010) may offer some words of Life for a soul spread too thin.

No Guilt for Saying No.

Is This Your First Time Here?


Run hard. Rest well. launched in March 2013. If this topic grabs your heart, we’d like to encourage you to subscribe to this weekly blog. The information to do so is located on the right hand side of this page. Along the way, we’ve encouraged folks to read the first 12-weeks of posts found in the archives. (But no rush. Go slow.) Start with Week 1. Each post is numbered and lays an important foundational insight into the life-giving rhythm Run hard. Rest well.

  • The feedback from the first 12-weeks of posts has been strong and encouraging. Because of this, the material is being compiled into an e-book, a free resource for current and new subscribers. It will be available this summer and will include reflection questions for personal and small group use. I pray it will be a valuable tool in the lives of many.

  • The site is under construction for a few weeks right now to compile the e-book, re-vamp the site and prepare to launch out into a broader spectrum of people. During this time I am going to send out links to articles I’ve written for various Christianity Today print and on-line publications over the last few years. With their permission (and handy links), I pray these articles bless and encourage.

run hard. rest well.

      These are Truths we need to be reminded of again and again (all of us!) as we cheer each other on to run a guilt-free race.
      May your rest be sweet this week.

      • Finding it hard to find the rest this week my wonderful friend, and guilt is following….looking forward to a Sunday of pot roast and hopefully digging in the dirt… 🙂 I know you can relate…
