Running on Full – Holiness in Rest, Play and Rhythm as Women – Deb Walkemeyer

Most women leaders are exhausted and calling it holiness. Jesus’ brand of holiness is different. It asks – Are you having fun yet? Is ministry improving your life and relationships? Can you maintain your current pace for three more decades? Do “hurried” and “busy” describe your typical week? Are your rhythms effective, restorative and joyful? Do you play well? Holiness calls us to the “light burden” and “easy yoke” of ministry done in the power and the pacing of the Holy Spirit. This workshop teaches key personal and ministry habits related to holiness in rest, play and rhythm. Learn how to “work from rest” instead of having to “rest from work.” Discover how to play in ways that re-create you. Develop delightful and empowering new rhythms.
