Still | Book Review


Do you worry a lot? Is it common for you to dread upcoming events? Does pressure or stress trigger outbursts of anger, isolation, depression, or feelings of failure? Do you have a hard time finishing what you start? Do you find it impossible to work in the middle of chaos? Do you wonder if God is really going to come through for you in difficult times?

In Still, Jenny Donnelly teaches you how to experience true, life-giving rest even in the midst of chaos. While most of us think of rest as something we do, Jenny shares how rest is a place from which we live and work. Sharing her own personal story of struggling with life's pressures and spiritual exhaustion, she introduces you to the source of peace and rest: Jesus. She shows you the steps to take to access rest anytime, anyplace, under any conditions. And she reveals how operating from a place of stillness powers your identity, creativity, relationships, and so much more.

If you've been stressed and anxious, operating on autopilot as life whizzes by, it's time you discovered the resting place God designed for you.

As the world delivers message after message of doing and working and striving, Jenny L. Donnelly offers a necessary reprieve in Still: 7 Ways to Find Calm in the Chaos. This book is a gentle, heartfelt reminder to rest. It may be difficult to do—and Donnelly does not shy from sharing her experience with the topic—but it proves a worthwhile pursuit when approached with intentionality.

Still offered me a lot on which to reflect, and I know I will continue to do so for weeks to come. There are plenty of times when I need more calm in my life, so I am glad to have this book as a helpful starting point.

I received a complimentary copy of this book and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
