ARC Arrival: Not So Fast by Ann Kroeker

Not So Fast: Slow-Down Solutions for Frenzied Families by Ann Kroeker

Publisher: David C. Cook

I received this for a First Wild Card Tour in August.

About the book: Is every hour rush hour at your house?

We're raising our kids in a high-speed, high-pressured, 24-7 world. Pushing children to get ahead, we cram everything possible into our days to maximize their chance at success. We're overloaded, overextended, and overcaffeinated. And we're paying a price. But how can we possibly downshift without missing out?

Not So Fast: Slow-Down Solutions for Frenzied Families explores the jarring effects of our overcommitted culture and offers refreshing alternatives with a Christian perspective. Author Ann Kroeker relates her own story of how embracing a slower everyday pace resulted in a more meaningful family and spiritual life. Practical ideas and insights will spark creativity and personal reflection. Plus, ponder real-life stories from parents reaping the riches of a simpler, slower lifestyle. Not So Fast offers hope that families struggling with hurried hearts and frantic souls can discover the rejuvenating power of an unrushed life. (from the book cover)

About the author: Ann Kroeker is an acclaimed writer and speaker committed to encouraging and inspiring families as they face the demands of daily living. She is the author of The Contemplative Mom and has contributed to the award-winning Experiencing the Passion of Jesus. (from the back cover)
