A new release from Revell Publishers written by Kay Wills Wyma holds a very timely message for practically everyone living in the fast-paced world of our modern day and age. “Not the Boss of Us: Putting Overwhelmed In It’s Place In A Do-All, Be-All World” is the response to the questions so many of us feel deep down, sometimes even subconsciously: “Too much to manage and not enough time or energy to do it? What if instead of being overwhelmed with life you could be overwhelmed by Truth with all its grace, hope, peace, and love?”
“Not the Boss of Us” was written in part due to a tragic story that Ms. Wyma shares at the beginning of her book… This is a story of a young girl who made a devastating decision because somehow along the way, a lie about the overwhelmingness of life clouded her vision of Truth. Her death “wasn’t cancer. It wasn’t physical illness. It wasn’t a car wreck or drive-by shooting. No, in large part life pressures and the perceived inability to live in the midst of them shattered that January day.”
As Kay Wyma asserts, feeling overwhelmed is the new normal of our lives. But it doesn’t have to be that way. This book is a reminder that we can combat the negative experience of constantly feeling overwhelmed by life, simply by replacing the lies and pressures with God’s Truth. When we are anchored in this Truth, our entire outlook changes – and our lives will change along with it.
Through warm, relatable, and often humorous stories, Kay Wyma’s “Not the Boss of Us” challenges us to put the overwhelmed feelings that so often threaten to strangle us in their place – and take hold of the freedom that comes from God’s Truth. I recommend this book, not only for women to read for themselves but also for parents, to help them initiate critical conversations with their children about not letting Life’s Overwhelmed get the best of them.
