Free e-book copy of Breathe

Many of you remember my 2005 book Breathe. I know some of you continue to use it as a resource for small group discussions or your moms’ ministries, or just to remind yourself to slow down and well, breathe! It’s about slowing down, simplicity, and Sabbath–topics still just as relevant as when the book originally released almost a decade (what?!) ago. It’s got a ton of great information on how to practice Sabbath with your kids, how to simplify your life, and more. It used to look like this:

It was re-released under another title, Making Room for God in Your Hectic Life, a few years ago, with a cover I really didn’t like, so I’m not putting up a photo of it.

But I’ve just (today!) re-released Breathe with a new cover and a few updates. I absolutely love the cover, which features a photo taken by my amazing daughter, Melanie, of her roommate Bekah, in Yosemite National Park. Take a look:

So it has a new amazon page, etc. I would love to get some reviews posted on that page.

So if you’ve read Breathe and want to just write a quick “I love this book, it changed my life!” type review, please do so. If you would like to have a free copy of an ebook version (PDF) so that you can skim and write a review, please let me know in the comments section below. I’m giving a free ebook copy to the first ten people who request one in the comments.

If you’ve used Breathe in a small group setting, I’d be particularly interested in hearing about your experience. I’m going to release a study guide tomorrow that will be free here on my site.

So leave a comment, and I’ll send you a free book. All I ask is that you post an honest review of the book. Okay, ready? Who wants a free book? Comment below!



  1. I’ve been wanting to read this book since the first edition! Thanks, Keri!

  2. Thanks for the early christmas treat. Would love to receive your book.

  3. I’d love a copy, and I’m a quick reader.

  4. No need to send a free e-book, but I did want to say congrats on the new cover and being able to direct more people to your great resource here, Keri!

    • Thanks, Tim, and thanks for leaving a review on the amazon page!

  5. Eden, Heidi and Kirsten, I’ve sent you a copy of the PDF so you can write a review and post on amazon. Feel free to talk it up on Facebook or whatever as well. Thanks!

  6. Hi Keri!
    I would love to read and review an ebook of Breathe. I read your book “God’s Whisper in a Mother’s Chaos” at a time when I was struggling in my earthly and spiritual walk. I also read “Garden of the Soul” . I love the way you write! It was a real pleasure meeting you many years later (what?) in Arkansas at the women’s retreat (and spending quality time with you afterwards at Deb Gulbranson’s house) I am now a Mom Mentor at a MOPS group and I think this may be a good small group study for them. πŸ™‚ Love the picture, by the way!


    • Sarah, So glad to see you here. I will email a PDF of Breathe to you. I have a study guide that will hopefully be up here soon as well.

  7. I have just been sinking deeply into your book “rest” and it is changing the way my family spends our weekends. God gives me every one of my inhales and exhales and He is the core of my being. I would love to read how His breath has impacted your life in this book. Thank you!

  8. I would love to review your PDF ebook Breathe! I really like the new cover too! I have read re-read and am reading again God’s whisper in a Mother’s Chaos. I have bought and passed out at least 5 copies to some of the younger women in our church with small kids. I am an older woman with small kids (48 almost 49 and I have a 7 year old and an 11 year old with Autism). I need to Breathe!! πŸ™‚ Thank you and keep up the great work! God bless you!

  9. Would love to read your snook
