There is no more room in our lives. Yet every new day brings more commitments demanding to be squeezed in. Overcoming Overload helps frenzied men and women weed out wrong ideas about life and rediscover God’s essential principles of balanced living, including:

· You Need a Sabbath

· You Need Sustenance

· You Need to Simplify

· You Need a Sanctuary

This biblical way of life promises rest, satisfaction, and contentment amidst daily responsibilities. Leave the overwhelmed life and discover the abundant life!

You live a full life—very full.

You’re running on a treadmill, going faster and faster. It’s a push to fit everything in: family, career, friends, fitness, finances—at a pace that never quits.

Add a sudden dose of the unexpected—the heavy things that demand an emotional response—and the stress can be overwhelming.

Is there any relief in sight? Yes! Far from “time management” strategies, Steve and Mary Farrar search through the Scriptures, showing you where to find sanctuary from the demands of modern life. The Farrar’s boldly encourage you to examine the beliefs that drive you to distraction and discover how to trade them for practices that restore your strength and vitality.

For whatever weighs you down, you can offload the excess and prevent burnout. Leave the overwhelmed life and discover the abundant life!

About the Author:

Steve Farrar is the founder of Men’s Leadership Ministries and author of the bestselling Point Man and Finishing Strong, as well as Standing Tall, Gettin’ There, and Tempered Steel. He brings a challenging message on manhood to thousands of conference-goers each year. Mary Farrar, author of Choices, served on the staff of Campus Crusade for Christ and has been active in women’s ministries. The Farrars are alumni of Western Seminary and Dallas Theological Seminary. They have three grown children and live in suburban Dallas

From Publishers Weekly:

People today are overloaded, overextended and exhausted, assert husband-and-wife team Steve (founder and chairman of Men's Leadership Ministries in Bryan/College Station, Tex.) and Mary (former staffer of Campus Crusade for Christ) Farrar. And while it's tempting to think we can have it all and do it all-and that we deserve it all-such beliefs are patently unrealistic. What we can have, the Farrars argue, is a rich and balanced life through faith: "God has provided for each of us an unlimited line of credit in His Word. The Bible is not unlike an ATM, accessible 24/7 for us to draw from its rich resources whenever we have need." The authors outline seven crucial needs that modern-day Christians often ignore-a sovereign, a Sabbath, a sanctuary, sustenance, supplication, simplicity and stewardship-and, in warm tones, weave in scripture and examples from modern life to show how meeting these needs will help readers stop feeling so overwhelmed. Although the authors tread familiar territory (the best-selling Ordering Your Private World, by Gordon MacDonald, comes to mind) and tend to criticize modern culture instead of offer solid solutions, Christians should find this a helpful, if slightly preachy, guide for finding breathing room in their busy lives.
