Publisher's Summary

Have you ever felt like a fraud or failure as you struggle to find balance in life? Do you find yourself juggling everything in mediocrity and feeling like you're succeeding at very little? In her no-nonsense way, Alli Worthington tackles the big questions about finding happiness and one's God-given purpose.
Breaking Busy marries popular secular research with solid biblical principles, instilling confidence that you, too, can move from crazy busy to confident calm. With refreshing candor, uproarious true stories, and a Christian worldview, Alli delivers truths that dismantle common happiness myths. Then she empowers you to get unstuck, to let go of the good to make way for the great, to know yourself and your creator, and ultimately to find peace and purpose in this world of crazy. You will:


Learn how to stop chasing what leaves you empty and start doing what you were created to do.
Identify the common lies you believe and how to strip their power from your life.
Recognize how what you say no to determines what you can say yes to.

With relatable anecdotes, Alli models real-life guidance on boundaries, relationships, and self-care, humbly examining her own mistakes and walking through how she learned from her missteps and found peace in a world of busyness. If you long to find real connection with both your loved ones and your creator, Alli Worthington deftly balances intelligent humility and heartwarming humor to help you rediscover your path.

Great, faith filled advise.

This is the first ever "self help" type book I have read. Usually I just check out blogs in secret and try to deny that I really need help. But the truth is, I DO! I work so hard! Give so much! But...I am not happy. My family is not happy. This book has given light to many places that can be improved. It does not restate the obvious. It does not over simplify or make you feel inferior for needing improvement. It does not give generic "magic 8 ball" style assistance. It gently tells the truth from the Bible with real life experience.

Great book for a small group!

I took my small group through this book. We focused each week on one topic and dove deep into what God was trying to tell us. It was a great book and applied directly to where each of us were. Women are often so busy we don't know where to find the time to read. I used this audiobook as my way to learn how to break busy without adding anything extra to my plate.
