Is it really work if I enjoy doing it? Glynnis Whitwer, Author, Director of Compel Training and of She Speaks, explores this question with successful author, Kathi Lipp, along with the motives and challenges that arise and keep us from observing a Sabbath. For ministry workers, we can sometimes not recognize that we are constantly working and not creating important time for rest. To be more productive, ironically we must do less and evaluate what really needs doing in the first place.

Come on in and get your rest on and discover the benefits of the Sabbath rest God has called you to.
