Publisher's Summary

Enter a simpler way of living by unhurrying your heart, embracing the relaxed rhythms of nature, and discovering the meaningful gift of growing slow. 

We long to make a break from the fast pace of life, but if we're honest, we're afraid of what we'll miss if we do. Yet when going big and hustling hard leaves us stressed, empty, and out of sorts, perhaps this can be our cue to step into a far more satisfying, sustainable pace. In this crafted, inspiring listen, beloved author Jennifer Dukes Lee offers a path to unhurried living by returning to the rhythm of the land and learning the ancient art of Growing Slow. 

Jennifer was once at breaking point herself, and tells her story of rude awakening to the ways her chosen lifestyle of running hard, scaling fast, and the never-ending chase for results was taking a toll on her body, heart, and soul. But when she finally gave herself permission to believe it takes time to grow good things, she found a new kind of freedom. With eloquent truths and vivid storytelling, Jennifer reflects on the lessons she learned from living on her fifth-generation family farm and the insights she gathered from the purposeful yet never rushed life of Christ. Growing Slow charts a path out of the pressures of bigger, harder, faster, and into a more rooted way of living where the growth of good things is deep and lasting. 

Following the rhythms of the natural growing season, Growing Slow will help you:

  • Find the true relief that comes when you stop running and start resting in Jesus
  • Learn practices for unhurrying your heart and mind every day
  • Let go of the pressure and embrace the small, good things already bearing fruit in your life
  • And engage slow growth through reflection prompts and simple application steps 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

A timely reminder to slow down in a world of hurry

This was such a beautifully written book reminding all of us to slow down and unhurry our hearts. I don't know if the timing of it coming right on the heels of the worldwide pandemic known as covid - 19 This was what made it so helpful to me, but I know I need Ed to hear these words at this point in my life! Thank you Jennifer for writing these words and for being bold to say them in a world that is all about productivity and accomplishment and multitasking. You have given me permission to say yes to the best things and no to some good things In order to slow down and unhurry. The way you pointed us all to Christ as the chief farmer and one who is helping us take care of the soil that is before us was such an encouragement. Thank you thank you!!

This is a MUST read book for everyone!

Jennifer Dukes Lee narrates her book wonderfully, allowing us to hear her physical voice through her beautiful words! This book impacted me deeply as I navigate how to live a grace-filled-life following Jesus. It challenged me to honestly reflect on choices I make, how I process things around me, and I will be adding this to my “must read every year” book list! The additional download was incredibly helpful in digesting the chapter topics and I’d highly recommend using that as you go through the book. Thank you, Jennifer, for writing this book and for inspiring me to grow slow — I will be forever grateful to you for this!
