Oh, the restlessness. I feel it as I climb into bed, as I toss and turn, as I sluggishly awaken after a not-so-restful night’s sleep. I feel it as I commute to work, as I travel both domestically and abroad, as I return emails, and as I share coffee or some jalapeno ranch dip with friends and colleagues.

Today I am guest posting on Jennie Allen’s blog. I had the pleasure of spending some time with Jennie several weeks ago as I was finishing up at Thomas Nelson. And I just adore her. She has the kindest spirit. She is fun.
