About the Book

Perhaps you are wondering how to get through the pain of divorce or financial hardship. Perhaps you are having trouble sorting out your emotions in a new relationship—or even a relationship of many years. Perhaps you are wondering how to listen for God’s word in your daily life. Twin sisters Daura Jones and Daphne Parker address all this and much more in Sleeping with Holiness.
The Greek word for “sleep” is Koimao, which means to calm, quiet, or be still. Just as our physical bodies need sleep to be restored, our souls need rest so that we can prepare for the Holy Spirit to enter and work in our lives. Each of us fights battles within our minds, bodies, and spirits, and each of us experiences trials. This guide explores what it means to rest in God. It also offers the encouragement you need for cultivating endurance and patience, makes clear the power of prayer and love, and demonstrates the true purpose of fasting.
Jones and Parker speak to those who have misplaced their hearts with God and reach out to those who may not yet know Christ except in the most superficial way. Whether you feel you have drifted away from God, yearn to renew your passion for the Christian life, or want to deepen your walk with him, here are tools that can help. Get ready to experience new joy and confidence as you learn to sleep with holiness!
