Lady A's Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood have been asked to contribute a song to come alongside Christian author Katy Boatman's new children's book You Can Rest: 100 Devotions to Calm Your Heart and Mind. Preteen girls have lots to be anxious about these days, and Katy Boatman, who has worked with them for 15 years, understands that. With an authentic voice and mentor mindset, Katy wrote You Can Rest to help young readers calm their hearts and minds by focusing on the one who brings true rest: Jesus.
Each day is structured with a Bible verse to open, a devotion to ponder, and a prayer to close. With journaling prompts throughout the book, this 100-day devotional helps readers reflect on their everyday anxieties from a biblical perspective, leading to hope in Christ.
In endorsing the book, Scott writes, "There is no better time than now for our little girls to be told and reminded of how powerful and loving their Creator is. That He is the upmost trustworthy and kind. That He cares about every single one of their thoughts and feelings. That right where they are in their young lives, He loves them unconditionally. Not because of what they know or what they don't know...how well they perform or how much they feel like they come up short. They are loved. They can rest in that. That's what the book You Can Rest: 100 Devotions to Calm Your Heart and Mind does."
Hillary Scott's new song also entitled "You Can Rest" was inspired by Boatman's book. She explains, "Dave Haywood and I were honored to be asked to collaborate on a song to live alongside this book. Being parents to little girls made this all the more timely and special. I pray this song reminds little girls, but also YOU reading this that you are loved infinitely by God and He wants you to rest in Him."
