Wholeheartedness: Busyness, Exhaustion, and Healing the Divided Self

A way of living and being that can transform us from the inside out

Eerdmans Summary

“I’m being pulled in a thousand different directions.”

As a therapist, Chuck DeGroat hears that line all the time. “I hear it from students and software developers,” he says. “I hear it from spiritual leaders and coffee baristas. And I hear it from my own inner self.”

We all feel that nasty pull to and fro, the frantic busyness that exhausts us and threatens to undo us. And we all think we know the solution—more downtime, more relaxation, more rest. And we’re all wrong.

As DeGroat himself has discovered, the real solution to what pulls us apart is wholeheartedness, a way of living and being that can transform us from the inside out. And that’s what listeners of this book will discover too.

Praise for Wholeheartedness

John Ortberg
— senior pastor at Menlo Church, and author of All The Places to Go
“Chuck has a deep commitment to living a life of wholeness. If that sounds appealing to you, there is life in his words.”

Steve Brown
— author of Three Free Sins: God Isn’t Mad at You
“Chuck DeGroat has done it again! He’s written another great book. This time, however, I needed it badly! His other books have made a difference in my life — this one came just in time to salvage this old cynical preacher from almost giving up on ever finding healing in this busy world. It will do the same for you. Read it and rejoice!”

Micha Boyett
— author of Found: A Story of Questions, Grace, and Everyday Prayer
“Chuck DeGroat blends psychology, theology, and poetry in a way that embraces the wisdom of both ancient and contemporary spiritual teachers. I believe his writing will do for you what it has done for me: provoke and encourage and push you past the scarcity of anxiety and performance, and into a fuller, more beautiful life of faith.”
