About the Book:

"“But I have stilled and quieted my soul; like a weaned child with its mother, like a weaned child is my soul within me.” Psalm 131:2
"Life is chaotic. Schedules, stress and strife can quickly spiral out of control leaving you frustrated, exhausted and angry. But God wants more for you. He wants you to be content.

With her easy-to-read style and biblically founded truths, Cathy helps you discern contentment in your life even in the midst of the chaos, helping you cultivate A Still and Quiet Soul"" (Amazon)
