A great book for the stressed-out.

A great book for the stressed-out. DeYoung shows that Jesus was busy and Christians should be busy discipling nations, parenting children, and bearing burdens. He rightly differentiates that from ‘crazy busy,’ a frenzied trying to please some and control others―and he shows how biblical rhythms and trust in God’s providence can keep us sane. Crazy Busy is less than 130 pages and is endorsed by numerous big Christian names, many of whom are authors and musicians that have blessed me. Although Crazy Busy didn't cause me to make radical changes in my life, it did cause me to rethink my priorities in life.

I was gratified that what we found here was not a "Christian" productivity plan. These types of plans can be helpful but the problem goes much deeper. DeYoung addresses the heart issues at the root of our frantic lifestyles and exposes what really matters. Winner of the 2014 ECPA Book of the Year Award.

DeYoung’s books are consistently wise and his prose flows. Chapter 9 takes an unexpected turn. The typically wise DeYoung looks at the other side of the matter: we’re busy because we’re supposed to be busy. This one is no exception. Yet the topic is not a felt need for me. Still, a friend asked me what I thought of it. And I wanted to give him a good answer. He italicized those words like I just did. They’re important.

Kevin DeYoung realized he was out of control busy and that many others are just like him. So he decided to write a book to help himself (and others) better manage time and resources with a look at biblical guidelines. He brings out some great principles to help crazy busy people, focusing on typical Christian pitfalls, such as feeling guilty for not helping with every single need in the world. For example, he points out that there are very real needs in the inner city, Timbuktu, and Capitol Hill, but not everyone is called to work or help with all of those areas. And once you realize that it is ok to not be involved in every good activity, it frees you up to be less busy and focus the time you do have more effectively. DeYoung also takes a good hard look at the role of priorities (or lack of) in time management, social media (don't panic, he doesn't rally for chucking your iPhone into the depths of the sea, just healthy habits), rest, and even that there are seasons when being crazy busy is God's call.

I had seen this book in a couple places recently, decided to order it for the library and then the book club here decided to make it one of their picks. Anyone who knows me will agree that I've been crazy busy for decades now (like DeYoung, it started before graduating from high school). There were even times in the past where just like that scene in 27 Dresses I had a supervisor have me practice saying no. I have been superwoman, and superwoman got very, very tired. Thankfully, I have learned from some of those past mistakes and gotten much better at saying no, but the opportunities to get busier are always there and calling desperately for me to get involved. I felt like this book was a perfect timely reminder at the beginning of the school year that it is ok to say no, to guard times of rest, and to watch out for the good choking out the better. I appreciated DeYoung's humility and honesty. He readily admits he doesn't have it all figured out or put together, but I also feel like the principles he brings forth are sound and helpful. Knowing my own tendencies, I will probably need to read this yearly or even every six months to be reminded of healthy practices. But thankfully, it is a short, easy read so I should be able to squeeze it in.

Prior to this school year, the past four years were the busiest time in my life. I accepted a new job as a divisional principal, completed an M.Ed. in educational administration, moved to a new school building, moved to a couple new apartment complexes, adopted a third child, and tore my ACL for a second time. I read Kevin DeYoung's Crazy Busy in December when I wasn't feeling crazy busy, and it's the second book by Pastor DeYoung I've read. Once again I wasn't disappointed. I found Pastor DeYoung's award-winning book to be a quick and enjoyable read. Crazy Busy is less than 130 pages and is endorsed by numerous big Christian names, many of whom are authors and musicians that have blessed me. Although Crazy Busy didn't cause me to make radical changes in my life, it did cause me to rethink my priorities in life. I'm happy to say life doesn't feel crazy busy now, and I'm thankful our Father has given me this time to slow down and smell the roses. Below are the ten chapter titles.
