Move beyond Surviving to a Rejuvenating Place of Soul Rest

Finding Spiritual Whitespace
Bonnie Gray

*** Special THANK YOU to the publisher for providing me with a review copy.*** My review is my own personal opinion.***


How many of us find ourselves running on empty with no time for rest, no time for ourselves, no time for God?

Bonnie Gray knows what that’s like. On the brink of fulfilling a lifelong dream, she saw her plans shatter into a journey through painful memories and anxiety. In her search for answers, she made an important discovery: we all need spiritual whitespace.

Whitespace. It’s the space on a page left unmarked. Untouched. Whitespace makes art beautiful. It gives the eye a place to rest. Just like beautiful art, our souls need balance and beauty.

With heartbreaking honesty, Bonnie guides you to discover a better story for yourself, one that feeds your soul and makes room for rest. Infused with biblical encouragement and thought-provoking prompts, this book shows us how to create space in the everyday for God, refreshment, and faith–right in the midst of our stress-frayed lives.

This book is like a vacation for the soul!
It’s about finding time to rest, to listen for God’s voice in the craziness of our daily routine.
The author shares from her own experience dealing with insomnia and stress in general. She shows readers how to look for Whitespace killers and Whitespace refreshers. She really digs down in an open and honest and real way that readers will appreciate. Some of her personal stories are heart-wrenching!
I think anyone dealing with stress, anxiety, brokenness…any one who’s ready to awaken to what resting in God is all about- should absolutely pick up a copy of FINDING SPIRITUAL WHITESPACE.
I really enjoyed the Whitespace Prompts and discussion questions at the end of the chapters. This is a book I will not only recommend but keep on my shelf to refer to again and again.
