Praise for Elizabeth Grace Saunders andDivine Time Management
“Making God the priority in your life is the primary challenge for all people of faith—Saunders’ new book DIVINE TIME MANAGEMENT is essential reading for making this goal a reality.”

—Cal Newport, Wall Street Journal bestselling author of Deep Work
“I strongly believe that the most creative people in the world should be those who know the creator. I love the creativity of this book. While most time management is about getting control by putting our plans first and our plans at the center, this book teaches us to give up control by putting God first and His plans at the center. Talk about creative. I’m proud to recommend this book and its author. The principles and challenges it presents will challenge all of us, and, if applied, make us better.”
—Brad Powell, Senior Pastor, NorthRidge Church, and author of Change Your Church for Good

How I Got a Book Contract With One of the Big-Five Publishers–By Doing Less and Trusting God More
So, it all started last summer of 2015 when God put on my heart that I was supposed to share more openly about my faith in my work. As you can imagine, that created a lot of vulnerability and uncertainty for me. My faith in God has always been a big part of my life, and I wasn’t ashamed to say that I was a Christian if the topic happened to come up.

He inspired me to start a Divine Time Management group coaching program and put on my heart in September that I wanted to write a book on the same topic. The only hold up is that I was already committed to doing some training that occupied the work time when I wasn’t coaching. So my plan was to really give my book proposal (essentially the business plan for your book that you prepare for publishers) my all in January of 2016 once the training was done.
