Non-Fiction option: rhythms of renewal

Are you ready to trade stress & anxiety for a life of peace and purpose? 

In Rhythms of Renewal, beloved author Rebekah Lyons draws from her own battle with depression and anxiety and shares a pathway to establish four life-giving rhythms modeled for us by Jesus that quiet inner chaos and make room for a flourishing life.

With stories, research and practical steps to take action, Rebekah charts a path through four profound rhythms to cultivate the vibrant, abundant life that Jesus offers us.

By taking time to REST, RESTORE, CONNECT, and CREATE, you will discover how to:

  • Take charge of your emotional, physical, mental and spiritual health and inspire your loved ones to do the same
  • Overcome anxiety by establishing daily habits that keep you mentally and physically strong
  • Find joy through restored relationships in your family and community
  • Walk in confidence with the unique God given gifts you have to offer the world

 

This is an hands on interactive study, so we will take June and July to read about the rhythms and put them into practice. This book has a bible study component that will be provided bi-weekly as well.

*Group Discussion will take place in the Book Club Facebook Group and through a Weekly Online Zoom meeting Tuesdays at 10:00am. Online discussions will be recorded so you can view them at a later date.
