The Power of Pause
Becoming More by Doing Less
In The Power of Pause, Hershey uses powerful stories and meditations, inspiring quotes, and a specific call to action at the end of each chapter to help us understand the profound value of slowing down in our daily lives and taking time for the truly important things. Over the course of 52 brief chapters, we learn how to take back the life God always intended for us to have by letting go of the things that keep getting in our way.
