Today's Christian Woman focuses on spiritual disciplines and practices to help you go deeper in your faith

Sabbath

Through the practice of rest, we spend time during the week preparing for a full day of rest, followed by a period of reflection. The practice observes the freedom of the Fourth Commandment, in which we observe a 24-hour period that includes no work, a focus on God, and enjoying the want-tos.
