Do you secretly think that the harder you work, the more God is pleased with you? You can live like that--for a while. But imagine what it might mean instead to unclench your teeth, loosen your grip, and actually experience God's pleasure in "you"--not just in everything you are "doing" for Him? "The Well-Played Life" is a journey of a life filled with richness, fruitfulness, and creativity of living in God's pleasure. Renowned author Leonard Sweet explores what it means to please God in the nitty-gritty of life; how that changes from the time we are 5 to the time we are 50; and how in every age of our lives, in everything we do, we can experience God's gift of play. "The Well-Played Life" offers a new spiritual direction of enjoying (and being enjoyed by) God. Discover how a Sabbath way of Christian joy is not only possible, but also how we were designed . . . and a core part of God's plan for our lives.
