If you look up the book Breaking Busy by Alli Worthington here is the description you will find: Breaking Busy helps women get unstuck and live with confident calm. Even though our lives are packed full of more: doing more, achieving more, acquiring more, why do we still feel like we’re missing something? Discover how “the more” might be the very thing that keeps us from living out our true purpose.
I LOVE that brief description. It really is a great summary of the book. However, if I were telling a friend about this book in casual conversation, I would tell them it's a book for women that feel as if they are striving to do it all yet making it nowhere (so basically all women, right?). I would tell them that this book will bring some peace to that nagging need inside of us that tell us we always have to be doing more, more, more. I would tell that friend this book is for them, regardless of their life stage, age, relationship status, religion, or political affiliation. If you haven't caught on already, I really enjoyed this book.
I appreciated Alli's writing style the most. I can sometimes get tired of christian female writers because they tend to be too fluffy, but Alli is really a breath of fresh air. She is relatable, humorous, and real. She's also no-nonsense which I appreciate. Alli encourages her readers to first seek God instead of the other things that are constantly pulling for our attention, and that's a message I can always get behind. She offers advice for the times when we know that's what we should be doing yet are struggling to do it. Her advice is practical, helpful, loving, and biblically-based. She also throws some research in, which I love.
All of that to say, go read this if you haven't already. You can find me and more of my favorite books over on Goodreads!
