What is Unhurried Living?

Many leaders feel hurried, and hurry is costing them more than they realize. Unhurried Living provides resources and training to help people learn to lead from fullness rather than leading on empty.

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

Built on more than twenty-five years of experience at the intersection of spiritual formation and leadership development, Unhurried Living seeks to inspire Christian leaders around the world to rest deeper so they can live fuller and lead better.

We seek to respond to questions many are asking:

Rest deeper: Why do I so often feel more drained than energized? Can I find space for my soul to breathe?

Live fuller: I have tried to fill my life with achievements, possessions and notoriety and I feel emptier than ever. Where can I find fullness that lasts?

Lead better: How can I step off the treadmill of mere busyness and make real, meaningful progress in my life and work?

Our purpose is to resource busy people so they can rediscover the genius of Jesus’ unhurried way of life and leadership. We do this by…

Living all that we are learning so we share with others from experience and wisdom.

Developing digital, print and video content that encourages the practices of an unhurried life.

Training people in Jesus’ unhurried way of living and leading.

Rest Deeper. Live Fuller. Lead Better.

Rest Deeper. Live Fuller. Lead Better.

Unhurried living isn’t about being lazy. It isn’t about doing less. It’s about having perspective & resources to work better. Unhurried living isn’t about an empty calendar, it’s about a full soul. 

What if your life and work was an expression of deep and abundant overflow? The work you do might not change very much, but transforming who you are, as you live & work, will change everything.

Rest Deeper

The practice of Unhurried Time with God (solitude & silence), lingering over scripture for transformation (not just information), setting aside one day a week to rest (the world will keep spinning, we promise), enjoying time with friends and family, and caring for your own heart and soul. These are just a few of the ways you can learn to rest deeper. Grapevines do not produce grapes year-round. Letting the soil rest allows it to remain fertile for many seasons of harvest.

Live Fuller

Spiritual maturity is the welcome fruit that comes as a result of lingering with the Father who loves us. Once you have begun the patterns of resting deeper, living fuller is a natural outcome. Who you are informs how you do what you do. There is a sense of peace, of lightness of heart. You aren’t straining to produce. The energy you need to do what you want to do is ready. This only comes from developing a holy rhythm of rest and work. The abundant life that has seemed so elusive happens naturally.

Lead Better

True influence is always given to us by God; it is not something we take for ourselves. 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. You can learn to lead from a place of confident rest in the love of God. Unhurried Living can provide you with the tools you need to lead from a full soul.
