“Oh friends, this is what we need. Be Refreshed is a drink of cool water to those who are parched and weary. But much more importantly, it is an opportunity to pause our busy lives and come before the King of Kings. Let Him speak life to you, each day.” – Shaunti Feldhahn, social researcher and best-selling author of For Women Only
“As the founder of Sseko Designs, my work is not just my day job–the Lord is inviting me to be a co-creator of a brighter and more just world. I am so grateful for this book that recognizes and validates women who are pursuing their calling in the workplace. I am refreshed and energized by the voices of women I deeply admire for using their gifts, passions and skills to bring light and restoration in the world for their daily work. For many of us, following Jesus means saying YES to the marketplace and I am so grateful for resources that help us stay grounded and energized in Jesus’ love while we pursue our vocations.” – Liz Bohannon, Founder, Sseko Designs, appeared on “Shark Tank”
“Be Refreshed” Devotions for Women in the Workplace is a glimpse into the heart of everyday women who are living full lives, caring for their families, work and communities while putting God first. These devotions are their moments, stories, and history with God. How scripture has been an anchor and their foundation in the midst of juggling what can sometimes be just too much. “Be refreshed” is a fresh wind in your sails, steering you to connect with God and live the full life you are so beautifully call to!” – Laura Stafford, Designer at Magnolia Homes and on HGTV’s Fixer Upper
“Christian women today are running businesses, leading nonprofits, raising children, volunteering at church, and serving as devoted wives and friends. I have no doubt God is using these women powerfully for his purposes. But all this easily brings with it exhaustion and depletion–which is why this deep yet digestible devotional from Diane Paddison is a key resource for today’s professional women. Short daily reflections from a variety of leaders are a great way to start each busy day.” – Katelyn Beaty, Christianity Today editor at large, author of A Woman’s Place: A Christian Vision for Your Calling in the Office, the Home, and the World
