Rhythms of Rest — Pre-Order and Gifts for You!

by | Sep 7, 2016 | Rhythms of Rest


Nearly three years ago, I took a risk. I decided to try something new and invite people to join me without knowing the outcome. Like being the last one chosen for a dodge ball team, I risked public humiliation. I hoped someone would find the vision compelling enough to say, “Yes, I’m all in.”

A few initial yeses translated as affirmation that I did hear God correctly after all.

When I instigated the Sabbath Society and asked people to join me in making rest a rhythm of life, I learned my expectations were small, God’s perspective is grand, and the outcomes of bravery hold unimaginable beauty.

Though it felt risky at the time, my yes to God on a prayer walk resulted in more than I imagined. That first yes led to a worldwide community of people who long to make rest realistic. I became the keeper of their stories, an intercessor and Sabbath mentor for many people with whom I’ve never met.

I began living what hundreds in the Sabbath Society are experiencing every week – intimacy with God through rest that changes everything.

One yes to God results in more than you can imagine. Countless lives have been changed by Sabbath and some of those stories are published in a book I wrote for youMy prayer is that the pages of this book will make rest realistic and doable no matter your stage of life or circumstance.

Now Rhythms of Rest is available for pre-order! Writing that sentence seems surreal and more than I imagined.

My name is written on the spine in the most perfect font but if that spine were expandable it would hold 1,000 names. I wrote this book because so many people risked saying yes and joined me in Sabbath-keeping.

Sabbath is a risk, a choice resulting in more than you can imagine.

Will you risk saying, “Yes, I’m all in.”

Rhythms of Rest is almost here and I have gifts to celebrate the imminent arrival!

Why Pre-Orders?

Retailors watch pre-orders as a monitor for how many books they will purchase to stock shelves in the future. The larger the number of books purchased before the launch date, the more successful a book often sells. Pre-orders set the trajectory for a successful launch and mean a great deal to authors.

    Shelly, I’ve watched Sabbath unfold up close and personal when you first received your call to write a book, but simply didn’t know what shape it would take. The memoir has translated into an even more meaningful journey, into the Sabbath Society, and ultimately Rhythms of Rest, where others rest and write their stories w/ you. When we rest, God creates story in lives devoted to Him, as we make more space for Him to do so. I’m so excited for this journey you’ve taken, inviting so many along straight to the heart of God. Pre-ordered some time ago!!! Can’t wait to hold my copy and to get it for friends. Love you so much!

    I’m not sure I’ve ever anticipated a book quite as much as this for SO many personal reasons. Thank you, Shelly, for saying yes! ?

    Oh sweet friend, I’ve got mine preordered … I did it the first day it was available on Amazon. It’s my birthday present to myself (my birthday is October 3). And I can’t wait to get it. You are a gift, Shelly, and I’m thankful to know you and call you friend.

    Congratulations and much prayer for you as you navigate all the details of this exciting time!!
