Sabbatical of the Mind – A Book Review
What is a Sabbatical? It is a rest from work, or a break, often lasting from two months to a year.
Does your life get crazy sometimes? Are you anxious, with no peace inside?
Perhaps, you are in need of a sabbatical as the author of this book. David Winters, the author, was working for a government agency and life was becoming very stressful. He decided he needed a change. He felt it necessary to take time off from his daily crowded routine in life and let the Lord work in Him to nourish, strengthen and heal him. I admire him for being able to do this.

His story is quite interesting and very humorous at times. It definitely holds your interest as well as relaying life lessons along the way. Many of the lessons can be applied to ones own life. Some lessons were learned through painful events. One such event was the loss of his father which he dreaded for years. But God’s healing power rescued him, he experienced the mercies of God and realized that his anchor was in the Lord. He says scars through this taught him that God leaves scars to remind him that all things heal.
All in all he found healing through the Lord. After five months he was able to return to work as a renewed person with new purpose.
