Acclaim for the main text of "The Rest that Works"
“THE REST THAT WORKS brings substance to the familiar themes of spiritual
direction by applying them to the everyday experiences and the difficult questions we face in the here and now. I think this book will be especially helpful to those who are seeking to deepen and enrich their relationship with God, but who are not necessarily finding all of what they are seeking and yearning for in the traditional experiences of the Church.”
— Hee-Soo Jung, Ph.D.
Bishop, Wisconsin Area, The United Methodist Church
“Revolutionary in its simplicity, THE REST THAT WORKS is both a practical
guidebook for the journey and a wonderfully freeing look at how to live a
spiritually fulfilling life.”
— Aveen Banich, M.D.
author, Expanding Vision
“One of the wonderful things about this book is that the rest that works
is essentially mindfulness approached through a Christian lens. It offers a
path to the present moment through God’s love.”
— Ann Brand, Ph.D.
mindfulness teacher and college educator
ACCLAIM FOR THE REST THAT WORKS CLASSES
"After taking the first series on the rest that works, I wanted to continue studying with pastor Daniels so I joined the second session. It has truly helped me in this way: When I was growing up, I remember being taught a line from St. Augustine - "You have made us for yourself, Oh Lord, and our hearts are restless until the rest in you." I have felt much unrest despite living a life of faith. Listening to Scott and reading his book has brought me closer to resting in God. Scott speaks from experience. He has had dark times in his life and and he has amazing compassion for those who need to find hope and peace. He writes about staying in alignment with God in such a gentle way. Always with self-compassion and humor as he encourages us to spend time each day vacationing with God . . . just being present. I would recommend this class to others. The rest that works has helped me to be more calm and compassionate. It works!"
- Judy Layde, class participant
