Shaunti Feldhahn: Finding Rest
“We can find rest for our ‘inner souls’—a place of true, Christ-centered peace and joy. It really is possible.”
Today’s guest is Shaunti Feldhahn. Shaunti is a popular speaker, best-selling author, and groundbreaking social researcher. Her findings have been featured in media as diverse as Focus on the Family, FamilyLife Today, the New York Times and Cosmo. With a master’s degree from Harvard University, Shaunti has worked on Wall Street and Capitol Hill. Now she applies her analytical skills to helping people and relationships thrive. She and her husband, Jeff, live in Atlanta with their two children.
Shaunti’s journey with the Lord has inspired her research over many years. Recently, she’s been studying both what the Bible says and what science says about finding true rest as it relates to the stress and worry we face as women.
We know that being “busy” has become a status symbol in American life, but the fact is that for women there’s no avoiding it. How can we manage to rest well amidst all of our roles and responsibilities?
Shaunti teamed up with iDisciple to create Find Rest: A Women’s Devotional For Lasting Peace In a Busy Life, one of the most important and stunningly beautiful devotionals I’ve ever read. It’s a cross between a devotional, journal, bible study and a simple resource that covers the topic of rest.
The devotional contains eight essential elements for rest.
- Build only on Rock
- Live according to your design
- Set aside superwoman
- Connect with God
- Shift your perspective
- Create life-giving relationships
- Walk in obedience
- Have no fear
I loved my conversation with Shaunti today and I know you will too.
Thank you Erin for bringing to light these amazing women and their life stories for us to relate to and make discerning choices with understanding and community of women and sisters in Christ. I loved Shaunti’s talk today.
