Desperate Rest with border.png


Desperate Rest, set in the context of Laura Demetrician’s healing journey, is a helpful and peaceful guide to taking a sabbatical. This book is an invitation to journey with the Good Shepherd as you create space, plan your sabbatical, and surrender to the path the Lord leads. Go from exhaustion to peace and from scattered living to intentional purpose. 

Enter sabbatical as you are. Start with rest. Walk out the other side refreshed and restored.
