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.
Gem Fadling is a Certified Spiritual Director who shares and teaches authentically from her own life and relationship with God. She loves to help open the windows of women’s lives to let in a fresh breeze, encouraging them to find their voice, get in touch with their longings, and take that next step.
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.
Gem is the perfect guide for weary souls seeking refreshment with the Lord. Her welcoming, cheerful, and gentle presence helps us to put our guards down and feel safe. She also has a wealth of experience to share from her own journey with God that helps newbies or experienced seekers discern the movements of the Spirit.

I love acorns. I found one a few weeks ago during some Unhurried Time with God up in the mountains. I am always amazed by a beautiful little acorn, especially when it has a cap on it. So cute. It is amazing to me that an oak tree grows from something so small. As I...read more
