Crazy Busy Week 5

Jim Elmore
Well, I confess...Week 5 should have been posted last week, but Thanksgiving week set me back. I hope you had a great Thanksgiving, celebrating God's abundance in your life. As I read the last two chapters, I will have to say, not only was it a very good book, but It's the best one I've ever read on the subject, and, one I will continue to recommend to people to read. Crazy Busy Week 5 Chapter 9  Embracing the Burdens of Business...You suffer more because you don't expect to suffer at all "The reason we are busy is because we are ...

Crazy Busy Week 4

Jim Elmore
Wow, it's already week 4. Time flies when you're busy. The two chapters this week were particularly convicting. It's amazing how something so useful can become so potentially dangerous to our souls and well being. And, tied into that is a need for "rest," for our own physical and spiritual renewal. Crazy Busy  Week 4 Deep Calls to Deep--  You are Letting the Screen Strangle Your Soul I probably marked more in this chapter than any of the rest, but here are a few restated thoughts for your pondering and/or thoughts.

Crazy Busy--Week Three Feel free to post any thoughts from your readings on either or both of the chapters. Chapter 5  Mission ...

Crazy Busy Week 2

Jim Elmore
Welcome to week two of our Crazy Busy book blog. I know you are probably one of those crazy busy people out there, so I'm hoping the time you are taking to read is beneficial. Personally, I am really enjoying the book. As stated last week, don't feel like you have to rush through the book. We're taking two chapters a week. This week, I especially liked chapter 4. Kevin had some really great things to share about the guilt we may feel for not doing more. Crazy Busy--Week Two Feel free to post any thoughts from your readings on either or ...

Crazy Busy Week 1

Jim Elmore
Welcome to our very first Blog Book Club at Trinity. We are all guinea pigs together in this endeavor, but I hope there will be more to come. Each week I encourage you to read 2 chapters of Crazy Busy (that's enough--I know you are busy). I will post some thoughts and questions related to the chapters. Feel free to post your thoughts, and respond to each other as well. If there is another question you have or something else you wish to share, please do so. If you are really ambitious and want to do a personal study on this book you can find ...
