Jim and Lois Ann AndersonFor God's Sake, Rest! Discovering the Pleasure of His Rest is dedicated to my wife, Lois Ann Anderson. Lois has stood with me through ministry journeys, bouts of depression, and my whole "Sabbath Rest" discovery. More than anyone else she has urged me to take rest, "Sabbath Rest". When I was stuck in workaholic ruts and Sabbath resistance, Lois nudged me out the door and on my way to my meeting place with God. We now offer Sabbath-retreats to pastors, missionaries, and church leaders. She is at my side helping me tell my story and tenderly encouraging others as she once encouraged me.
