Can't stop, won't stop.


We don't rest well. The unlimited opportunities and impossible expectations we are surrounded by are exhausting. Something in us wants to do more, be more and have more. We're addicted to busyness.

In this chaotic world of hustle and bustle, is real rest even possible? Pastor and counsellor William P. Smith invites you to press pause and learn to embrace the way of life God intends. Refreshingly, even in the chaos of modern life, we can have a busy schedule but maintain a quiet soul.

But God created us to need rest. This addition to the Track series walks through the goodness of rest, and why God's people have been commanded to rest. Practical and relatable, Smith unpacks what true, soul nourishing rest could look like for students today. Readers will be encouraged us to live within divinely set boundaries, embracing God's good rhythm and enjoy the peace that He promises.
