Full Product Description

  • For anyone who is simply too busy
  • Kevin DeYoung takes a deep approach to help you uproot busyness
  • You'll find new ways to live a balanced life

“When we are crazy busy,” says Kevin DeYoung, “we put our souls at risk.” In this book the award winning author and Senior Pastor at University Reformed Church, East Lansing, Michigan, challenges you not to merely to make a few bad habits go away, but to face and overcome the serious danger that you are letting your spiritual life just slip away.

Kevin makes plain that the the biggest dangers with being over busy are not merely temporal and material and temporal - they are seriously spiritual. Yes, a person might work twelve hours a day, six days a week for an entire life and not suffer for it - but the real strain and worst damage is, mental and spiritual.  In the case for most jobs and for most of us the negative effects are huge.

Over busy-ness, demonstrates Kevin is like sin: you have to kill it or it will be killing you. The pattern is predictable. You get overwhelmed by one or two big projects, start to feel crushed and then despair of ever feeling at peace again.

Something has to change. And it can with the help of Kevin’s trademark humor and winsome candor. Kevin De Young helps you find a better way forward with new ways to tackle your schedule, roadmaps to reclaim your sanity and a lot of encouragement to remember your soul.

Crazy Busy lets you restore that desperately needed balance between the guilt of doing nothing and destroying yourself by trying to do it all.

Publisher's Description

"I'M TOO BUSY!" We've all heard it. We've all said it. All too often, busyness gets the best of us.

Just one look at our jam-packed schedules tells us hard it can be to strike a well-reasoned balance between doing nothing and doing it all.

That's why award-winning author and pastor Kevin DeYoung addresses the busyness problem head on in his newest book, Crazy Busy — and not with the typical arsenal of time management tips, but rather with the tools we need to get to the source of the issue and pull the problem out by the roots.

Highly practical and super short, Crazy Busy will help you put an end to "busyness as usual."
