3 Day Giveaway!!

I love to give stuff away, so on my blog for 3 days I am going to be giving something away!!

Today the giveaway is a book titled, “Margin” by Richard A. Swenson.  I love this book!!

You can’t give what you don’t have and too many of us end up completely depleted by the time that Christmas rolls around.  You have to learn how to rest and take care of yourself so that you are at a place that you actually have something to give to others! I have been guilty of living a life of complete overload!!

“Overload is not having time to finish the book you’re reading on stress.  Margin is having time to read it twice.  Overload is fatigue.  Margin is energy.  Overload is red ink.  Margin is black ink.  Overload is hurry.  Margin is calm.  Overload is anxiety.  Margin is security.  Overload is the disease of our time.  Margin is the cure.” – Richard A. Swenson, M.D.

I have been on a journey over the past year to have margin in my life.  There are times I still really struggle with it, but I am getting better! I hope this book helps you to leave behind a life of overload and step into a life of MARGIN!!

If you would like to be entered in the giveaway, please leave a comment on THIS BLOG POST ONLY with the word MARGIN!! I would also love to hear from you about how you struggle with overload!!

    Toni, I struggle everyday with overload! I never dreamed I would be the mother of 2 small boys at my age! That plus a full time job with tons of responsibilities, 10 grandchildren, and a heart to serve God and His people keeps me busy and often neglecting caring for myself. I really struggle with guilt if I get sick or simply overwhelmed or tired!! Praying for God’s direction!!
