Surviving Religious Burnout Part 1

Are You Being A Christian or Doing Christianity?

My newest mini-book, Surviving Religious Burnout, launches Tuesday, August 4. You can pre-order now on Amazon, Kindle, Apple Books, and Barnes and Noble Nook.

Why I Wrote This Book

I realized over the years a certain theme developed in my writing. Out of that, a mission emerged. I want to help people discover an enjoyable, meaningful Christianity through sharing God’s truth in a refreshing vulnerable way. This book is an expression of that idea.

Working on Being

There is a difference between doing Christianity and being a Christian. Let me explain.

I became a follower of Christ at a young age. I loved going to church, reading the bible, and sharing my faith. As I grew older, so did my boldness and excitement about Jesus. 

My “doer mentality” motivated me to accomplish many good things. It also made it hard to find security in being a Christian without working towards a spiritual goal. Resting, relaxing, and enjoying being a child of God were foreign to me. 

Repeated Burnout

This approach to Christianity caused me to burnout repeatedly. I was always happy to do more than others up to the point I was no longer able to do anything at all. 

Burnout is not typically a symptom of a half-hearted Christian. It takes a committed follower of Christ to perform good works to the point of exhaustion. This is who I want to help with this book.

I hope Surviving Religious Burnout helps you find a more enjoyable, meaningful Christianity.
