Women’s Author Discovers Spiritual Oasis of Hope and Rest in "Breathe"

Share Article

In a world of multitasking, Keri Wyatt Kent asks, Â?Why are we in such a hurry?"

Keri Wyatt Kent challenges the lie that a mother's value is found in what she does rather than who she is. She offers "Breathe: Creating Space for God in a Hectic Life" (Revell, May, $12.99) as a response to the hurried lives many women find themselves trapped in.

A MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) book, "Breathe" explores how life often rockets to such a hurried and worried pace—and how that affects us spiritually. "So much emphasis has been put on getting everything done so fast," Kent says, "it's to the point where slowing down has become very countercultural."

Kent challenges women to slow down, simplify and discover true rest. "Jesus promised rest for those who come to him," Kent says. "We experience that rest through an intimate relationship with God." Kent has also studied how to honor the Sabbath in a world that never stops.

Her vision for "Breathe"? "I'm hoping my readers will embrace the vision of a slower, saner life and be empowered to say no to things that keep them from saying yes to God."

"Slow down. Find a comfortable chair. Fix a (decaffeinated) beverage and learn how to live one moment at a time," John Ortberg, best-selling author and pastor, said about "Breathe." It's about making time for what really matters.

Keri Wyatt Kent writes and speaks often on spiritual formation and is an active member of Willow Creek Community Church. She lives with her husband and two children. Visit http://www.revellbooks.com for more information about "Breathe".
