Good morning readers!

Rest: Living in Sabbath SimplicityAs a gift to say thank you for reading my blog,  my publisher is giving away a free chapter from Rest: Living in Sabbath Simplicity. Just click here to go to my product page on the Zondervan website. You’ll see a picture of the cover on the left side of the page, and below it, there is a button that says “Read Sample.”  From there,  you’ll be able to download a PDF file of the chapter.

Also, don’t forget to visit Karen Robbins blog today to read a review and another chance to win a free book.

And if you are in the Chicago area, we have several events planned for the next two weeks. This Friday, we’ll be at Regular Joe coffee house on Algonquin Road in Hoffman Estates, at 7 p.m. And next Wednesday, Jan. 14, we are having a very fun event at Spa Avalon in Deer Park (at Rand and Long Grove Road) with food, drinks, samples of spa treatments, and more. I’ll be giving a talk on simplicity and signing books. The event is from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Hope to see you there!!
