About Me I am a retired librarian and I now support books and authors through my reviews.

I have always loved to read and I was able to share that love through my work as a public librarian for 22 1/2 years. I now promote literacy by reading, and then writing reviews. I love to support authors by sharing my reviews with others!

Rest, Girl: A Journey from Exhausted and Stressed to Entirely Blessed by Jami Amerine

Rest, Girl: A Journey from Exhausted and Stressed to Entirely Blessed

If you’re overwhelmed and exhausted. . .
If you’ve ever thought that all you need to do is try harder. . .
If you’ve ever felt unappreciated or overlooked. . .
If you’ve found Jesus or you’re still searching. . .
Your Heavenly Father Invites You to Rest, Girl.

Female readers of all ages will find a sassy, funny, authentic, and encouraging friend in master word weaver Jami Amerine, as she comes alongside you to share God’s overwhelming grace and peace in an inside-out journey to true, life-sustaining rest. In a climate that is steeped in stress and worries, this book offers a priceless opportunity to walk in faith to experience the overwhelming blessing of a mind, spirit, and body at rest. Jami will lead you on a humorous, engaging and life-altering journey from restrictions and unrealistic expectations to the unconditional love of the Father. 


Author Jami Amerine offers practical advice and spiritual insights in her newest book, and she uses humor and personal experiences to share her journey of discovery. In her introduction to Rest, Girl, she admits that even though she believed that God could, she often had doubts that He would. As a young mother, Amerine struggled with stress and fatigue until she realized that "fear is the ultimate thief of real rest". Freedom from fear granted her peace and joy, but first she had to encounter true Grace and fully understand that there was nothing she could do to earn God's love.

Stress, fatigue, and fear certainly have no age limits, and Rest, Girl is perfect for women in all stages of life. I recommend this enlightening and encouraging book!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review. These are my own thoughts.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars 


I am a wife to Justin, and mother to Maggie, John, Luke, Sophie, Sam, and Charlie. We are on a reprieve from foster care as we recover from the removal of a long-term placement. My husband Justin and I have a ranch near our home and we love to travel and “just be.” However, we recently relocated to the North Houston.

I have a Master’s Degree in Education, Counseling, and Human Development, but don’t let that fool you, I am not sure how I pulled that off. I also have an undergraduate degree in Family and Consumer Sciences (yeah, Home Ec.). I can cook anything, but don’t ask me to sew.

I love sharing the stories that take place in these halls where I fully embrace the Lord’s presence… He wanders around, stepping in juice puddles and stepping over laundry. I love Him, but more, I like Him. I also believe the GOOD NEWS is just Jesus. I am not here to explain Him to you. He wants to know you – but that is between you and Him. I tell tales of my adventures with Him, as He is mine.
