An Unhurried Life

Here is a book that affirms that our work is a God-given gift. Productivity is not the enemy―it is the attitudes behind our work that can be our undoing. So how do we find balance between our sense of calling and the call to rest? An Unhurried Life offers a way.

Unhurried Living


Rest Deeper. Live Fuller. Lead Better.

Great leadership begins on the inside, in your soul. Learning healthy patterns of rest and work can transform your leadership—your daily influence.

Genuine productivity is doing the good work God actually prepares for you in a given day. Slow down and envision a life of rich fruitfulness, of true productivity.

Alan is clearly more than just a writer, theologian, or speaker. He is truly a practitioner equipping leaders to slow down to order their hearts and minds to be more thoughtful and effective. Unhurried Living is rooted in scriptural truth and practical simplicity and Alan, as a speaker and a facilitator on this topic, is not only one of the best, but he is an important pioneer in this area of getting our lives into a Christ-like rhythm of rest and kingdom impact.

Retreats with Alan & Gem Fadling have provided a sacred space to pull away and step into a facilitated solitude of “unhurried” time to listen and reflect in God’s presence with a blank agenda. I inevitably emerge with a refreshed soul, a gladness of heart, deeper love for the One who invites us to ever deeper intimacy, and a clarity of vision for what I need to do next in providing leadership in my place of vocational calling.

The thing about Gem is that she is what she teaches. Present, attentive, an amazing listener. She doesn’t talk at us, but speaks as a fellow traveler with us and she has the kind of wisdom and humility of one familiar with rocky paths. I love how deeply she sees and loves every single woman in the room, and is so naturally intentional about affirming each and every one. It’s crystal clear that her life has prepared her for this work.

I know the title of this post is a bit stark, but those were the words that came to mind as I reflected on this passage: Though the fig tree does not blossom, and no fruit is on the vines; though the produce of the olive fails and the fields yield no food; though the... read more

Maturity: My Deep Self

“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through... read more

Psalm 84: The Presence of God

Psalm 84 is one of my favorite Psalms. I’m inspired by verse 10: “Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere.” (See the entire Psalm below). A thousand days in one of the greatest places I’ve ever been does not compare to the value of a simple day in... read more
