John Piper addresses busy moms
Erin asks, “Is Your Girl Drowning in Busyness?“: ”I’m on a quest to inspire young women to live lives of radical faith. But I’ve encountered a bit of a roadblock. What’s the problem? It’s their day planners. In many ways life for the average middle school and high school girl has started to resemble a pressure cooker.”
And Kevin DeYoung answers a question: Am I Still Crazy Busy? In doing so he offers several changes he is working on to make his life less so. Speaking of Kevin’s book. . .
David Murray shares: An Addendum to Crazy Busy? : I thoroughly enjoyed reading Kevin DeYoung’s new little book, Crazy Busy. It’s especially good in diagnosing the spiritual roots of the over-busyness or workaholism that many of us have a tendency to fall into. It’s also well-written – such an enjoyable read. However, Tim Challies, Aaron Armstrong, and others identified a weakness that I didn’t really pick up on when I read it, and it’s the book’s incompleteness. It’s lacking in practical remedies.” Murray then suggests some very practical ideas.
Matthew Hoskinson writes Crazy Busy: A Review “DeYoung’s contribution won’t be the last book you read on the subject. It may not even be the next. But when you do pick it up, you’ll find a helpful guide to identifying some idols in your heart, reminding you of the mercy of Christ to sinners, and resting on God’s grace when you can’t help being crazy busy.”
Adding my voice to the reviews above, let me just say that I think Crazy Busy was a helpful book to me and I really appreciate that I was able to get it for a crazy low price!
