Are you a fan of hurry?  Distraction?  Depletion?  Being overwhelmed or plum-tuckered?

If the answer is No, you are in the right place.
We need places to refuel.
To rest. To pay attention.
To breathe. To just be.

Hi, I’m Terry Hershey.
Pause. Peruse. Enjoy. We all need the permission to be gentle with ourselves.
I write Sabbath Moment because I want to live with a soft heart;
to create a place for sanctuary, empathy, inclusion, compassion and kindness…
a space where we are refueled to make a difference.
Here you will find resources to step back from a driven and stressed pace of life,
and learn to celebrate presence, mindfulness, finding grace, gratitude, permission, sanctuary and delight.

“Terry Hershey is the real thing. Warm, humorous and right on target with issues
that allow us to focus our lives on the few things that matter.”

Alan Loy McGinnis, Author, “The Friendship Factor”

New Book Release

Terry Hershey’s new book, Sanctuary – Creating a Space for Grace in Your Life, not only defines what sanctuary is but why we need it, where we can find it, and how we can create it as space and habit. With practical ideas and his signature conversational tone, Hershey illustrates that sanctuary is not a new-age fad or lifestyle upheaval; rather it’s a way to approach and embrace your daily life through a lens of grace, freedom, and contentedness.
