Book Summary

(Nacogdoches, TX) Sleep Clinics. Sleeping Pills. Sleep Systems. With all the focus on sleep, it’s obvious to anyone breathing (or not—in the case of sleep apnea) that sleep disorders are on everyone’s minds. Can’t fall asleep. Can’t stay asleep. So many problems, but so few zzzs.
 
Dr. Charles W. Page has been plagued with sleep deprivation his entire adult life. Whether from the rigorous unpredictable lifestyle of a general surgeon or dealing with obstructive sleep apnea, Dr. Page sees sleep as a precious commodity. Many of his surgical patients also report sleep problems on their medical histories. It’s certainly a widespread problem.
 
Although there is extensive medical literature regarding sleep, insomnia and sleep disorders, there is little instruction about these issues from a Christian worldview. Sleep was God’s idea—why shouldn’t we go to the One who created rest in the first place for answers to our sleep problems. One of the reasons Dr. Page wrote Surrendered Sleep was to heighten people’s awareness of the spiritual side of sleep issues, which often goes neglected in health and medical literature.
 
 
BONUS FEATURE: Balin Jam
(chapter 17 from Surrendered Sleep)
Balin jam (“may you pass your night in peace”)—it’s how the Fulani people of western Africa say goodbye. This Fulani expression best captures the message of Surrendered Sleep. Passing your night in peace, from a biblical perspective, involves a whole lot more than sleeping well. It encompasses surrendering every aspect of sleep to God. The prerequisite for having peace as we lay down to sleep is a growing, vibrant relationship with God. Everything in our lives, including sleep, flows out of our pursuit of our loving Father in Heaven. The ability to sleep is a multifaceted gift given by God, who likewise pursues a love relationship with every individual on this planet.... MORE

Books to the Rescue' Apple iPad 2 Giveaway

I was so excited to work with Shana at  The Writer's Lair Books again and to promote this fabulous giveaway in order to promote reading and to be able to donate a book to our local school library.  Many of you may remember my review of The Flightless Goose a while back which is a fabulous book published by The Writer's Lair Books. I have always loved to read and have felt that reading is an essential part of childhood.  My daughter inherited my love of books multiplied many times over.  She was always a child that preferred books to toys.  People were amazed that even as a toddler she would bring you book after book to read and listen for as long as you would read to her.  When she learned how to read she was unstoppable!  She read everything from billboards, food packages, even her grandparents senior citizens magazines!  I love to see children reading and to encourage their love of books.  While I know most of you won't read past "ipad 2 giveaway" I hope that I'm wrong and the true message to promote literacy is heard.
