Rest doesn't have to be a four-letter word. If you feel like you're going to break from exhaustion, let me invite you to Simply Sabbath, a podcast for the burnt-out Christian mom, who longs to get back to the core of who she is and reclaim the deep joy and stabilizing peace Jesus has for her in her everyday-- without the mom guilt that often accompanies self-care practices.

Each week, we'll dive into all things sabbath. You'll hear some of the host's thoughts on Sabbath and the things she has learned over the past few years, but more importantly, you'll get to meet other women who are practicing Sabbath as well and learn what it looks like in their lives. Our conversations will center around God's original design for the week and how that design can be implemented in a culture that is so enslaved to hustle and hurry. 

What we are talking about in this podcast is not just another thing to add to your to-do list. This is not another expectation for you to live up to. It is a gift outstretched from the hand of your creator. An invitation to press pause on walking alongside Jesus in all the things he's called you to do. And instead, sit down across from him and just be with him. 

It is an invitation to Simply Sabbath.

    Ep 43: The Flexibility of Sabbath with Anna Kettle

    Ep 43: The Flexibility of Sabbath with Anna Kettle

    Because our culture does not practice Sabbath together in a specific way, not even our church culture, we have to approach Sabbath with a very individualist view of it. What rest looks like for one may not be what rest looks like for another. My guest today, Anna Kettle, author of Sand Between Your Toes, shares with us how that flexibility helps us to embrace the heart-posture of Sabbath rather than executing a specific plant. Listen in.

    About My Guest:

    Anna Kettle is an experienced writer, published author, podcaster, and an award-winning marketing professional. Her first book ‘Sand Between Your Toes: Inspirations for a Slower, Simpler & More Soulful Life’ released last year under Tyndale House. Anna is a slow living advocate, a lover of coffee and good conversation, and a big believer in the healing power of words. She is married to husband Andy, and mum to their son, Ben. They live in the beautiful waterfront city of Liverpool in England.

A gentle invitation to rest

I am so excited for this podcast. I think Sabbath is such an important topic that is so often overlooked in the world today, yet it offers so much to our busy lives. Rachel’s kind and gentle words are an invitation as she shares her own experiences and conversations with others to help each of us find our own Sabbath practice.
