Review: Rest, Girl

Today I’m reviewing Rest, Girl a nonfiction Christian living book for women by Jami Amerine,

Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy from the publisher as part of JustRead Publicity Tours!

My Review

I know I’m not the only one who has struggled with anxiety and worry over the past many months. At times it feels like spiritual oppression because, you know what? …that’s likely exactly what it is.

Having followed Jami Amerine’s blog for a number of years and having read her first book, Stolen Jesus, I was very excited to have the opportunity to review Rest, Girl. Once I delved into it I was even more excited to discover that was exactly what I needed right now.

Jami shares practical tips on how to turn that mental exhaustion over to Jesus to be able to fully partake of His rest. With plenty of scripture, prayers, and journaling prompts I found much encouragement and inspiration.
