Review: Finding Spiritual Whitespace by:Bonnie Gray
About the Book:
Move beyond Coping and Surviving to a Rejuvenating Place of Soul Rest
How many of us find ourselves exhausted, running on empty with no time for rest, no time for ourselves, no time for God? Bonnie Gray knows exactly what that's like. On the brink of fulfilling a lifelong dream, Bonnie's plans suddenly went off script. Her life shattered into a debilitating journey through anxiety, panic attacks, and insomnia. But as she struggled to make sense of it all, she made an important discovery: we all need "spiritual whitespace."
About the Author:
Bonnie Gray is the soulful writer behind faithbarista.com, serving up shots of faith for the daily grind. Her work is featured on DaySpring (in)courage and nationally syndicated on Crosswalk.com. After graduating from UCLA, Bonnie served as a missionary, ministry entrepreneur, and Silicon Valley high-tech professional. She lives in Northern California with her husband, Eric, and their two sons.
To start this book off on the right note, you have to first come into the realization what "spiritual whitespace" is. Spiritual Whitespace makes room in our hearts for a deeper, more intimate relationship with God, room in our lives for rest, room in our souls for rejuvenation. To me spiritual whitespace would be comparable to just "being", being in the moment of peace, quiet, and reflection. We need times like these to help us face our problems and daily tasks with a renewed sense of well being.
The author upon writing this book, wasn't completely aware of the need she would have for this very idea in her own life. And all too suddenly she was to embark on a journey that was somewhat life altering to the point of literal trauma that she had refused to face. So this book is a very real story of restoration for the author and for us. She also has provided two different types of prompts to get you actively involved in the process of living and letting go.
**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from Revell.
