Editorial Reviews

“I don’t know when or how busyness became a status symbol, but I am so glad that in Breaking Busy, Alli Worthington is calling us all back to a better way of living!” Jon Acuff, New York Times bestselling author
“Alli Worthington has learned the difference between simply having a full life and truly experiencing life to the full. She shares her secrets in this warm, funny, and wise book that will help all of us finally trade ‘busy’ for God’s very best.” Holley Gerth, Wall Street Journal bestselling author of You’re Already Amazing
Breaking Busy is a great read for women who feel like they don’t have quite enough hours in the day to finish their to-do list—in other words, most of us!

Whether you’re a harried mom with french fries littering the floor boards of your minivan or a high-level executive with more meetings than your iCal can keep up with, this book will help you navigate the next season of your life with significantly less stress and a lot more genuinely relaxed smiles.” Lisa Harper, author of Believing Jesus: Are You Willing to Risk Everything
“No offense to anyone else, but I think Alli Worthington might have written this book just for me. I needed Breaking Busy, but I’m not alone. This book is practical, yes, but it’s also wise and warm, like a good friend who helps us all to find the real way forward into a life less busy and more fulfilling.” Sarah Bessey, author of Out of Sorts
