Blog: Trusting God with the Sabbath // The twin gods: accumulation & accomplishment

Other Important Days: 

  • Blogs will go out on Thursdays at 10:30 am – to give you plenty of time to prepare for Sunday’s Sabbath 

  • I’ll email you on Fridays letting you know the next blog in the series is live & give your action steps for that week – think small, teeny-tiny, doable baby steps 

  • Sunday – The Sabbath: Rest!

  • Monday, your accountability buddy check in email – I want to hear how it went and will send you an email asking about it! While responses aren’t mandatory, I would highly encourage you to even send in a sentence saying if you did it or if you missed … no guilt here. But what’s the point of an accountability buddy if we don’t have honesty? 

  • The group is always open and available for questions, encouragement, and to share insights & takeaways – I’ll be checking in daily (well, expect for Sundays) 

If you are anything like me, I like to know what I’m getting myself into and have a good lay of the land & a good understanding and game plan before starting. I’m Type A: It’s also why I like listening to books on Audible to get the big overview before diving into the ‘official’ read with a hardcover book and sharpened pencil.  (If it's really good, I'll go back through for a 3rd pass with the workbook -- but that's boarder line obsessive)

Start Studying up on the Sabbath 

I’m excited to cheer you on as you start taking your first 4 sabbaths!! Here’s to slowing down, more time with Jesus & the family, playing, and deep rest for your soul! 

Warmly,
