Life doesn’t have to be so complicated.

In Jesus Over Everything, Bible teacher Lisa Whittle gives practical language for our universal difficulties, offering hope and direction for the future.

We all want to live simpler lives and to put Jesus first – and we struggle with both. While we are busy strategizing new ways to streamline our calendars and clean out our closets of the clutter, what really needs attention is what will give us long-term clarity and peace — the priority order of Jesus over everything in our lives.

In Jesus Over Everything, Lisa shares eight statements of choice to help us grow in our understanding of what it means to put Jesus first amid the craziness of our days. Discover the joy of choosing:

· commitment over mood

· real over pretty

· steady over hype

· holiness over freedom

· service over spotlight

· and more

Jesus Over Everything is a practical, compelling picture of what we crave yet struggle to define as we seek to give God his rightful place in our everyday lives.
