Overwhelmed is the new normal

Too much to manage and not enough time or energy to do it? What if instead of being overwhelmed with life you could be overwhelmed by Truth with all its grace, hope, peace, and love?

In this perspective-altering book, Kay Wills Wyma shares how to confront the pressures we face--at home, online, at work, in relationships, on our calendars--and replace all those heavy expectations with the liberating truth that we were made for something better. Through relatable stories sprinkled with a dash of humor, Kay gives us permission to step back, put Life's Overwhelmed in its place, and find fulfillment and freedom anchored in Truth.

If you feel tired, like you just can't take it anymore--don't. Because Life's Overwhelmed is not the boss of us!
