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!
