New Book Teaches Readers How to Trade Our Stress for God’s Rest

Shares message that God's rest is the most important strategy in being able to overcome obstacles and experience victory in our lives


MAITLAND, FL—Ginger Levi’s new book Rest ($15.49, paperback 9781498485746; $7.99, eBook,   9781498485753) asks readers: do you ever find yourself frustrated, stressed-out, at the end of your rope? Would you label yourself a bad “rester”? God has an excellent plan for each of our lives (Jeremiah 29:11) but it often seems like everything is working against us. True excellence in life is achieved by the balance that comes from a life submitted to His agenda and not our own. Are you ready to trade your stress for His rest? This book is for you.


Levi says, “Stress is an ever-present factor of modern life. A large percentage of people are taking medication to treat anxiety, depression and other stress-related illnesses. This book offers a practical strategy aimed at reducing levels of stress and developing a lifestyle of rest in God which is both active and intimate. My desire is to share the insights and experience I've gained in my struggles with resting in order to facilitate spiritual growth and Kingdom purpose in the lives of my readers.”
