Move beyond coping and surviving to a rejuvenating place of soul rest. How many of us find ourselves exhausted, running on empty with no time for rest, no time for ourselves, no time for God? Bonnie Gray knows exactly what that's like. On the brink of fulfilling a lifelong dream, Bonnie's plans suddenly went off script. Her life shattered into a debilitating journey through anxiety, panic attacks and insomnia. But as she struggled to make sense of it all, she made an important discovery: we all need "spiritual whitespace."

Finding Spiritual Whitespace: Awakening Your Soul to Rest makes room-- room in one's heart for a deep relationship with God, room in one's life for rest, room in one's soul for rejuvenation. With soul-stirring vulnerability and heartbreaking honesty, Bonnie takes readers on a personal journey to feed their souls and uncover the deeper story of rest. Lyrical writing draws readers into Gray's intimate journey through overwhelming stress to find God in a broken story and celebrate the beauty of faith.

Finding Spiritual Whitespace is a beautiful, heart wrenching story about one woman's journey to rest through PTSD. As someone who has struggled with anxiety I could relate. As someone who survived her parent's divorce I could relate. As a woman trying to make sense of my past I could relate. As someone longing to understand the fullness of God's love for me I could relate. I found this book incredibly relatable and also incredibly hopeful. Because as I saw the hope and trust and faith in Bonnie's story I was more able to see it in mine.

Rest and refreshment.

Finding Spiritual Whitespace holds truths that root deeper than typical books about seeking rest. Bonnie approaches the idea of "whitespace", a term used used to describe absence in creative expressions like art, photography, or graphic design, and applies it to our lives as women. She uses her own story, shared in unique glimpses and heartfelt revelations, to draw a connection between women of all backgrounds and lifestyles.

Her premise is simple: We all need whitespace. She draws out this conclusion through a series of though provoking chapters that delve into issues that trap and bind us as women. The prompts at the end of each chapter are also a gold-mind of soul-searching goodness! Bonnie approaches introspection with an original flair that will leave you with realizations, both at times painful and freeing.
I wasn't sure what to expect with Finding Spiritual Whitespace. Living a busy and sometimes overly-full life, I loved the tag line, "Awakening your soul to rest" and was not disappointed. I appreciated Bonnie's approach and raw honesty. I found myself feeling relieved knowing that I wasn't the "only one" who felt a certain way by her straightforward admissions.

I also loved the challenges and intriguing questions she left at the end of each chapter. They weren't the typical, "how did this make you feel" queries but instead aimed deeper--soul deeper. They touched a gentle part in my heart that opened me up to embrace a different kind of rest. A rest free from guilt, free from restrictions, and free to be genuine in my brokenness if necessary.

If you are a woman, you are in need of this book. Though Bonnie's experiences are unique, she creates a bridge to close the gap between women of all ages and circumstances. I highly recommend this and would suggest reading it with a partner or a small group. Accountability in scheduling in whitespace would be extremely helpful.

In our busy world today we all need rest and we could all use a little (or a lot) more whitespace.
