  • Burned Out : Trusting God With Your To Do List

Do you find yourself saying yes to activities you don’t have time for? Have you ever said, If I don’t do it, who will? An overloaded schedule and an inability to rest are signs of approaching burnout.

Smith helps you to look at what drives your busyness and points you to the rest and peace that comes from a deeper trust in God. You will learn how to build rest into your life and break free from the things that keep you from peace.
