ABILENE, Texas, Aug. 21, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ -- Today's Christian women are tired. They battle exhaustion -- physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. After observing firsthand the serious toll taken by Christian women enduring overscheduled lives, Denise George, national speaker and author, realized women needed to be reminded of their God-given right -- the right to rest. Denise now empowers women to discover the life-giving power of Biblical rest in her latest book, "A Woman's Right to Rest: Fourteen Types of Biblical Rest That Will Transform Your Life."
"In a time when we as Christian women feel obligated to run ourselves ragged trying to have it all, Denise George reminds us that God intends for us to find rest in and through Him," says Rebekah R. Land, Ph.D., Marriage and Family Therapy. "She not only gives us practical suggestions for self evaluation, but also for implementing the needed changes in our lives."
"A Woman's Right to Rest" released Aug. 7th and is now available at Family Christian, Lifeway, Mardel and other independent book stores.
In "A Woman's Right to Rest," women will discover the fourteen distinctive types of Biblical rest Scripture teaches and encourages, and that Biblical characters (including Jesus, himself) demonstrate in the Gospels. They will learn how to incorporate each type of Biblical rest into their busy everyday lives and will come to understand how Biblical rest will enhance, empower, and transform their faith, health, work, and relationships.
