First-time Authors Ask Christians Are You 2 Busy 2 Serve?
New book inspires and helps Christians find more ways to serve God, family, and country.
By: Brooksedge Publishing
The husband and wife authors say they wrote this book "to reverse the Pareto Principle in the church by liberating Christian citizens from the busyness of life and equipping them to serve God, family, and country while being salt and light in our culture."
The Pareto Principle originally referred to the observation that 80% of Italy's wealth belonged to only 20% of the population. "The Pareto Principle is evident in churches across America today," notes Joe Locetta, "where 80% of the serving is done by 20% and the others just seem to be 2 Busy 2 Serve. We believe God's desire is the other way around - 80% or more should be serving."
The authors' life experiences and observations as Christian citizens, political activists, and life coaches often make them wonder what is holding so many Christians back from stepping up to serve God, family and country? The excuses they hear most often: "I'm too busy." "I don't have the time." "I don't have any talent." "I'm afraid."
This new book provides self-assessments coupled with Bible-based tips and useful resources on how to overcome these daily challenges.
The book will help readers better understand and evaluate their own readiness to serve. 2 Busy 2 Serve? is designed as an introspective and practical book that will help readers answer these questions:
o Why serve?
o How are you sharing the one life you have?
o Why do you serve and what are your serving priorities?
o What is holding you back from serving?
o What is the basis of your choices -- Biblical or worldly lifestyle values?
o Are you successful?
"We pray that readers and all Christians are inspired to become salt and light in our current culture by generously sharing their time, talents, and treasures to serve God, family, and country," says Cathie Locetta. "Whatever may be holding you back or distracting you, it is time to discover a better way. If you are searching for an effective and meaningful way to set yourself free to serve God, family and country, we wrote this book for you."
2 Busy 2 Serve? Set Yourself Free to Serve God, Family and Country is available at Amazon in both paperback and Kindle formats. More information on the book is available at https://www.2busy2serve.com/

Sequels in the future including 2 Busy 2 Vote? and others.
