Set in an accessible prose-poem and style and seasoned with wisdom quotes from many sources, Hutchinson's latest book leads to the rediscovery of vital connections to Jesus (via the Lord's Prayer), ourselves (via holy leisure), wise guides (via inspirational fiction), others (via true relations), and God (via the savored life). Frequent reflection questions draw readers into interior dialogue or discussion with friends.
“Gold-miners find their precious nuggets by sorting through and washing tons of dirt. Gloria Hutchinson is a miner. In this book, she pans through mountains of literature and extracts precious nugget after precious nugget. You will be wonderfully overwhelmed with shining pieces of wisdom from everywhere, not least from Gloria Hutchinson herself. A very creative, insightful, poetically-written book.”
Author of The Holy Longing
“ 'Drop the reins of your driven life.' Gloria Hutchinson helps us do this with a smile or even a big grin. She invites us to the inner places where we can enjoy more fully the life and love that is ours. This is a little book with which we will want to 'waste time'.”
