Quick Overview:

If yesterday’s word was “simple,” tomorrow’s word will be “slow.”

52 Experiences in Unhurried Honesty with God

If yesterday’s word was “simple,” tomorrow’s word will be “slow.”

Our culture is shifting from fast food to health food both physically and spiritually. Self-care, soul-care, life coaches, and spiritual retreats all show our dissatisfaction in quick fixes and fast faith. The Sacred Slow is an invitation to unhurried honesty before God. Formatted as 52 experiences, The Sacred Slow reminds readers on every page that God never wanted to use them: He always wanted to love them.

Experienced devotionally or in small groups, each chapter features a short but unexpected reading and two options for application: a thought focus or a heart exercise. The content is the overflow of Dr. Alicia Britt Chole’s thirty+ years as a spiritual mentor to leaders and learners. The tone is personal, practical, and penetrating. The fruit is sustainable (as opposed to event-based) intimacy with God.

About the Contributor(s) Alicia Britt Chole

In person and in print, Dr. Alicia Britt Chole’s words perform grace-filled surgeries. Her voice is soothing and her messages are piercing. She has often been compared to a sword wrapped in velvet.

An intriguing wordsmith, skillful mentor, and award-winning writer, Alicia speaks internationally and has authored several books including Anonymous: Jesus’ Hidden Years and Yours and 40 Days of Decrease: A Different Kind of Hunger. A Different Kind of Fast. Men and women, learners and leaders, across ethnically diverse groups agree: In a culture obsessed with all-things-new, Alicia brings ancient truth to life.

Alicia holds a DMin in leadership and spiritual formation from George Fox Seminary and serves as the founding director of Leadership Investment Intensives (, a nonprofit devoted to providing customized soul-care for leaders in business and ministry.

Alicia lives in the Ozarks of Missouri with her husband, Dr. Barry Jay Chole, their three amazing children (all Choles through the miracle of adoption), two somewhat-less-than-amazing dogs, four truly strange cats, one curiously social guinea pig, and four confused chickens.

Among her favorite things are thunderstorms, jalapenos, wild woods, honest questions, and pianos in empty rooms. To connect with Alicia, visit and @aliciachole.
