Rhythms of Grace: Discover God’s Tempo for Your Life
By Kerri V. Weems / Zondervan
Burned out and exhausted, Kerri Weems discovered that keeping in step with
the Holy Spirit, rather than the world’s pressures, means being led, rather than driven. In Rhythms of Grace, Weems draws from her own story and Jesus’s encouragement to rest as she helps readers ask:
- How do both work and rest lead to wholeness?
- How do I set boundaries in relationships and time?
- Is my schedule a pacesetter or a Sabbath stealer?
- How is rest connected with God’s purpose for me?
- What would a year of sacred rhythms look like?
Speaking to women who want to know God’s peace but feel caught in busyness and fatigue, Weems gives readers the tools they need to establish sacred rhythms in their day. In the end, their schedules will reflect not worry and ambition but the true priorities of their hearts.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through BookLook Bloggers [Harpercollins Publishers] book review bloggers program.

Rhythms of Grace teaches and helps the reader find the rest which God meant for them to experience. Through the content the reader will discover what kind of rest God wants us to have and how we can obtain that rest. By examples and simple steps the way to finding our own life’s rhythm can be found in the reader’s own busy life.
Once again, I have discovered a book that speaks to my current situation. I have learned new things about the kind of rest we are to have according to God’s examples. By giving things up to God and allowing Him to do His part, instead of doing it all myself enables me to find rest. Setting a pace for myself throughout my tasks and deadlines will help eliminate stress and burn out.
Rhythms of Grace is a very interesting read. It has shown me new ways to approach moments in my life. Kerri writes in a style which propels me along through the book’s pages. The author, Kerri, also used Biblical verses and references to support her suggestions and findings.
I would highly recommend Rhythms of Grace to all.
