FaithWords Book Club: Sharing Inspirational Reads #Faithwords #TakeTheDayOff #RobertMorris

**I received a complimentary copy of the book for consideration. All thoughts are 100% my own. 

I love chatting about books.

Reading is such a huge part of my life, so when I come across someone who enjoys the same type of books that I enjoy, it's great to really dig in and share our thoughts. Still finding fellow readers can be tough...and finding fellow readers who read Christian (fiction or nonfiction) can be even tougher. Do you crave those book chats with like-minded readers too? If so, The FaithWords Book Club might be just the group you are looking for!

The FaithWords Book Club is a private Facebook group that is only available to join upon request. We select a new book to discuss each season and we have had authors like Joyce Meyer, Victoria Osteen, T.D. Jakes, and more stop by to answer questions or say hello. We do exclusive giveaways in the group, share unseen videos from our authors, and let bloggers, influencers, and readers connect with one another, our authors, and our FaithWords publishing group.

Sounds great, doesn't it? There's something about discussing a book in depth that can really make you appreciate it even more--- and make you get even more out of the book than you might have otherwise. Right now in my Sunday School class at church, we are reading a book about prayer. Having an eclectic group with various ages and life experiences, it's interesting to see how each of us connected to the words that we are reading. I have so often found that our own personal experiences shape how we interpret things, and by joining together and sharing those thoughts, we pick up on ideas that never would have occurred to us based upon our own experiences. The FaithWords Book Club is an ideal way to do that and connect with others from all over!

During the months of October and November, the FaithWords Book Club has been reading Take the Day Off by Pastor Robert Morris. Take a look:

Rest your mind, body, and spirit and focus on God’s principles for rest with this helpful guide from bestselling author Robert Morris.

A constant stream of busyness can slowly wear away at us over time: physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Yet believers often forget that taking a day of rest is one of the Ten Commandments! When we don’t give our minds and emotions a break, our will to make good choices can often become compromised. Resting is also important to those around you. If you have a weary soul, you can’t pour yourself into others at home, work, or wherever you are. It’s vital-you must take the day off.

In Take the Day Off, Pastor Morris explains why rest is central to your wellbeing, how to do it, and how helpful it can be. You will be inspired to experience true rest and make it a priority in the rhythm of your weekly schedule. Don’t wait and delay God’s blessings in your life. Start implementing the principle of rest in your life and you will see eternal benefits.

What others are saying about it:
“I strongly encourage every believer to read and reread this book. I pray it becomes a staple in every Christian home, where we function at our highest level, and can in turn raise a generation to do the same.”
– Bill Johnson, Bethel Church, Author of The Way of Life and Raising Giant-Killers

“I discovered a deep revelation of the importance of Sabbath from Pastor Robert’s teaching years ago. Applying these principles of rest to my life has greatly impacted me and my family and has allowed us to run the marathon of life well. I encourage you to read and apply the wisdom of this book to your life!”
– Kari Jobe Carnes, Worship Leader, Songwriter

“A must-read if you’re feeling overwhelmed and struggling for a light at the end of the tunnel.”
- Danny Gokey, Grammy-nominated recording artist

“As I work with CEOs and other high performers, overload is one of their biggest issues. The boundaries of time and space have disappeared…You are never safe until you remember that God has commanded us to protect some time to rest. Neuroscience and other fields have proven it to be true, and Robert gives us some practical ways to do it.”
- Dr. Henry Cloud, psychologist and co-author of Boundaries

Doesn't this sound like a GREAT read... and one that so many of us probably need too? You can grab your copy here. And it's not to late to join in the fun. Head on over to Facebook to join the free FaithWords Book Club group now.
