Dr. Evonne Thompson’s Can You Sleep Like This? In the Rest of God brings to light what many of us struggle with daily. The ability to find rest in a world that tends to see “rest” as being unproductive instead of healing and restoring. Dr. Thompson lets us journey with her as she herself struggles at times to find the rest that was decreed by God. From beginning to end, you connect quickly to her words because she is us and we are her. Balance at times seems to be the “holy grail” that we seek. And it’s not always there to be found which tends to destroy relationships and jobs. Can You Sleep Like This? provides readers with thought-provoking questions and the tools to help them find the rest that is needed and that God intended for His children at the end of each chapter with the three R’s: Reflect, Response, and Rest.

Can You Sleep Like This? opened my eyes to another specific facet of the Bible that I didn’t know much about. Not having been a churchgoer, but still a powerful believer in God, I eagerly look forward to books written about religion. They are like gifts, and everything is new and exciting. On page 106, Dr. Thompson writes: “God wants to speak to you. He wants to speak to you about your work, your burdens, your pains, and your fears.” Dr. Evonne Thompson writes with a conviction that instills in you even more belief than you had before. Her words are gifts to be opened and enjoyed. But above all, her words let me know even more that God is there. And He encourages rest. He commands it for us.
