Whether it’s the TV or radio continually playing in the background or the persistent pinging on our phones, the constant noise and frenetic pace of modern life can be overwhelming. The cacophony of cultural messages that permeate the air produces an inner restlessness that says, “You should be doing more, saying more, posting more, and sharing more.”

More than ever, we need sanctuary, not only as a refuge from the noise around us but also as a place where God’s truth can be clearly heard.

This 31-day devotional explores what it means, and what it looks like in very practical ways, to lead the “quiet life” Paul speaks of in 1 Thessalonians 4:11-12. Readers will come to see that a quiet life doesn’t mean escaping from the world around them but centering their hearts on Christ so that they can live with a clear focus, a quiet confidence, and a steady peace.

This book is for those who…
• feel overwhelmed and long for quieter spaces that allow for thoughtful reflections and honest conversations.
• want to balance time spent online with non-digital activities and invest in real-life relationships.
• desire a deeper quality of life beyond the online culture of noise, outrage, and self-promotion.


A former English teacher, Denise is the author of three devotionals, two books, and one gift book. She’s also the General Editor of two multi-author works, including the CSB (in)courage Devotional Bible for Women (B&H, 2018). She currently enjoys writing for the First 5 app by Proverbs 31 Ministries and speaking at retreats, conferences, and other women’s events. Denise lives with her husband and three kids in North Carolina, where she always finds time for old books, peach tea, and a good football game.


My head is so busy and my heart is often so heavy that Denise’s book was a gift to me. Who doesn’t yearn for a true sanctuary from all the noise and expectations? I appreciate her commitment to all of Scripture, her engaging stories, and her warmth in coming alongside those who read. In a culture that tells us to seek rest anywhere else but in Christ, Sanctuary is a helpful guide for the restless heart. -Kristen Wetherell, Ministry Content Manager, Unlocking the Bible, and co-author of Hope When It Hurts
