Faith/Christian Living


Disclosure: I received a copy of “Take The Day Off” from FaithWords to conduct this review. All Opinions shared in this post are mine.

I have always wanted to be apart of a Book Club so when I heard about the FaithWords Book Club I had to join. I have friends who are a part of Book Clubs but none of them aligned with books that I enjoyed reading. Plus it’s a on-line Book Club which totally aligns with my busy life.

Take The Day Off

Take the Day Off by Robert Morris

Needless to say that I was excited about this month’s featured book Take the Day Off by Robert Morris. I will be the first to admit that I have my own personal bouts with feeling super stressed out, sometimes burned out and weary. Even with these feelings I have managed to train myself to keep going. These are all common concerns that many of us deal with a some moment(s) in our life. This book allows you to 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. As a believer so many times we forget that taking a day of rest is one of the Ten Commandments! I AM guilty as charged! 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.

Pastor Morris, author of In Take the Day Off 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.

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.

For October and November we will be studying Take the Day Off by Pastor Robert Morris with special “guest visits” from other FaithWords authors as well!

“I discovered a deep revelation of the importance of Sabbath from Pastor Robert’s teaching years ago.

“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
