Practice spirituality in a culture where work has become a religion.

This collection of real-life examples offers refreshing stories of everyday spiritual practices people use to free themselves from the work and worry mindset of our culture.

Drawing from the experiences of others, it shows you how you too can refocus and enrich your daily life with spiritual practice, including:

  • Finding a haven for inspiring reading at a coffeehouse
  • Singing during the morning commute to work
  • Prayerful walking at home and on business trips
  • Mindful eating and other deliberate experiences of God's goodness

Full of insight and inspiration, Finding Time for the Timeless will help empower you to see how even your busiest workweek can include spiritual habits and routine.
