About:

Are you exhausted? Women today really do feel the weight of the world on their shoulders. Every morning we are greeted with a long list of to-dos: get the kids up and out the door on time, have a meaningful quiet time, put in a full day at the office, spend an hour at the gym, prepare a healthy and delicious meal (organic and locally grown, of course), and make sure the sink sparkles before you go to bed. Oh, and don’t forget to look great and smile while you’re doing it. These are all good things to do, of course. But the bigger problem occurs when we start to feel as if our worth is measured by our to-do lists. And the messages we receive at church, on Facebook, and from the media only perpetuate these unrealistic expectations, creating a relentless cycle of exhaustion. As Elyse Fitzpatrick has traveled this country, she has seen increasing evidence of this weariness epidemic invading our churches and communities. And she has good news for women everywhere: there is hope! God doesn’t judge us by our to-do lists. Instead, He calls us to faith. Free yourself today from the endless stream of bad advice and discover the true rest God offers.

Authors:

Elyse holds a certificate in biblical counseling from CCEF (San Diego) and an M.A. in Biblical Counseling from Trinity Theological Seminary. She has authored over 20 books on daily living and the Christian life.

A frequent speaker at women's conferences, she has been married for over 40 years and has three adult children and six really adorable grandchildren.

Along with her husband, Phil, Elyse is a member of Valley Center Community Church, a reformed congregation in the community of Valley Center where she soaks in truth about Jesus and the great good news of the gospel.

Elyse loves the southern California lifestyle...lived mostly outdoors. During the "winter" (what's that?) you'll probably find her swimming laps indoors at a local gym. But during the summer months, you'll see her squeezing into her wetsuit and riding waves with her grandchildren and friends. She enjoys walking and soaking up the SoCal "Life's a Beach" vibe. Of course, she also loves reading everything she can find and especially enjoys her silly family podcast, "Front Porch with the Fitzes."
