For ME, the Sacred Slow has become a place of refuge. I sink my teeth deep into this book and find myself slowing down. I hit the pause button and sink deep into my chair and my breathing isn't as heavy any more. I take in every single word that Alice offers and I find through her writing that I am getting to know Jesus better through the art of slowing down.
It's a place where we all say as humans we've allowed sin of busyness to steal joy, where we look at our lives and stop making excuses for why we are so busy and start seeing ourselves as taking a step back.
Our Father wants to be in every day moments with us. He is speaking to us, but if we are so busy, we aren't able to hear him. I want to hear him, so I am learning to slow down, show up and take a deep look at my life. Now, if I am being real, this isn't easy. I don't do it perfect and somedays I am better than others.
However, "The Sacred Slow" has brought an awareness that I didn't know existed! This is a fantastic book. If you struggle with slowing down, I think you should take a read. I give this book 4.5/ 5 stars. A favorable review was not required.
