This week in Free Book Friday we have two offers that will help you get some margin in your life.
First, the fabulous book 24/6: A Prescription for a Healthier, Happier Life by Matthew Sleeth is offered as a free ebook. I paid full price for this book and it was well worth it. Get it now for free while you still can!
From the back cover of 24/6:
“Remember the Sabbath and keep it holy.” It’s the only commandment that begins with the word remember—almost as if God knew we would forget. Well, guess what? We did. And is it any wonder? Look around. Thanks to ever-improving technology, we now feel the pressure to be “on” twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Sure, things like smart phones, the Internet, Facebook, Twitter, and Skype help us stay connected with coworkers, family, and friends—but what about God? How can we possibly have “ears to hear” when we are plugged in 24/7? If we never take time to “be still and know” God, how can we grow into mature spiritual beings? The solution is simple. And it is endorsed by the Great Physician himself. In fact, he invented it. It’s called rest. And like all good things, rest is a gift from God. Rest doesn’t just happen. It takes intentionality, commitment, and restraint. Yet the rewards are indescribably amazing. In 24/6, Dr. Matthew Sleeth provides a life-giving prescription for a healthier, more God-centered life amidst a digitally crazed, always-on world and helps us better understand how our lives can be radically transformed—physically, emotionally, relationally, and spiritually—by adopting a 24/6 lifestyle.
Second, I have a print copy of Margin: Restoring Emotional, Physical, Financial, and Time Reserves to Overloaded Lives by Richard Swenson to give away. In this book, Dr. Swenson helps us find some much-needed margin in our overloaded lives.
From the back cover:
Overload is not having time to finish the book you’re reading on stress. Margin is having time to read it twice. Overload is fatigue. Margin is energy. Overload is red ink. Margin is black ink. Overload is hurry. Margin is calm. Overload is anxiety. Margin is security. Overload is the disease of the 90’s. Margin is the cure. Margin is the space that once existed between ourselves and our limits. It’s something held in reserve for contingencies or unanticipated situations. Dr. Swenson provides a prescription against the danger of overloaded lives. Focusing on margin in four key areas-emotional energy, physical energy, time, and finances-he offers an overall picture of health that employs contentment, simplicity, balance, and rest.
