This is our 5th and final episode on the Barrier of Busyness. Today we are talking about the importance of weekly rest: what Sabbath means and how to do it. If you are a mom, you DO actually get a day off. Let me show you how.

1. Sabbath means literally "Stop, rest." God introduced a rhythm of life when He worked for 6 days and rested on the 7th. It is one of the 10 commandments (Ex 20 and Deut 5). It's a gift. We are FREE to rest.

2. Suggestions for how to do this as a mom

  • Prepare.
  • Pick a day that works for you.
  • Stop working.
  • Rest your body.
  • Rest your mind.
  • Rest your soul.
  • Replenish your soul.
  • Practice.
