“We can find rest for our ‘inner souls’—a place of true, Christ-centered peace and joy. It really is possible.” 
   Today’s guest is Shaunti Feldhahn. Shaunti is a popular speaker, best-selling author, and groundbreaking social researcher. Her findings have been featured in media as diverse as Focus on the Family, FamilyLife Today, the New York Times and Cosmo. With a master’s degree from Harvard University, Shaunti has worked on Wall Street and Capitol Hill. Now she applies her analytical skills to helping people and relationships thrive. She and her husband, Jeff, live in Atlanta with their two children.   Shaunti’s journey with the Lord has inspired her research over many years. Recently, she’s been studying both what the Bible says and what science says about finding true rest as it relates to the stress and worry we face as women.   We know that being “busy” has become a status symbol in American life, but the fact is that for women there’s no avoiding it.  How can we manage to rest well amidst all of our roles and responsibilities? Shaunti teamed up with iDisciple to create Find Rest: A Women’s Devotional For Lasting Peace In a Busy Life, one of the most important and stunningly beautiful devotionals I’ve ever read. It’s a cross between a devotional, journal, bible study and a simple resource that covers the topic of rest. The devotional contains eight essential elements for rest. Build only on Rock

 Set aside superwoman

 Shift your perspective 
 Create life-giving relationships 
 Walk in obedience 
 Have no fear
