Item description for Finding Your Way: To Things That Really Matter by Tommy Tenney...
Overview Offers advice on how to achieve a simpler and more meaningful life by reprioritizing less important values and embracing faith, drawing on the biblical story of Ruth to demonstrate how her example can help to promote inner peace.
Publishers Description In The Ultimate Comeback Tommy Tenney showed us how we can find restoration and healing after even the most egregious errors and from the most hopeless situations. In Tenny's new book, the pilgrimage of Ruth and Naomi to Bethlehem is the springboard for Tenney's message which teaches that many of the things that go wrong in our lives can be resolved or even avoided by adopting some very basic principles. We desperately need to downsize, reprioritize, and sometimes even sacrifice less important things in order to simplify our lives. In doing so, we become unfettered enough to see more clearly where our priorities should lie. We have the tendency to seek temporary satisfaction through a more convenient or more accommodating value system. We settle on whatever gives us permission to do what we want and to acquire what we desire. Ruth possessed the virtues of wisdom, faith, and trust; and employing these while enduring personal crisis, she realized that the very things she needed for inner strength and support were her family traditions. What we find on this journey is that these foundational tenets lead us down a path to a place of peace and contentment, to the Things that Really Matter.

I first heard Pastor Tommy Tenney speak at a church I visited in Phoenix, AZ. And I have to say I was blown away by his great sense of humor and personal touch to his version of the story of Ruth. I finished the book in a time in my life where I really needed direction on what I wanted to choose career wise. After reading the book, I feel blessed to have read such a refreshing and modern take on the story of Ruth and Naomi. His writing is relatable, and the message in each chapter speaks truth. Get this book if you're in need of finding direction in this crazy life. The author doesn't direct our steps, but encourages us through the story of Ruth that God is here, hope is possible and that all things work out for the good. Be Blessed!!

Personally, I love the story of Ruth and Naomi, so this was an easy book for me to read. Tenney uses this story as a catalyst for his message on simple living and prioritizing our lives in such a way that we tend to first things first. The author is easy to read and his conversational style keeps you wanting to keep turning the page.
If you are having personal struggles in your life, this book will serve a guide to help you come out to the other side. I found it enlightening.
