unofficial book trailer



Is anyone a fan of feeling overwhelmed? Life’s pressures, expectations and circumstances steal more than they give. When “overwhelmed” went too far, desperately hurting someone they knew, Kay Wyma and her family called it out and called it quits. Because, even though feeling overwhelmed has become the new normal – it does not have to own us. What if you could take the negative nature of being overwhelmed and diffuse it or, better yet, flip it to good and be overwhelmed by Truth instead?

“This book is a breath of fresh air. Kay Wyma’s humor, honesty, and insight will inspire and encourage you to make some very good trades. Rather than allowing yourself to be overwhelmed by the trappings and pressures that seem chronic in this fast-paced world, Kay will show you how to slow down and lean into your Heavenly Father–who, by the way, made you for so much more.”

“Again and again whether in carpool line or school hallways or parking lots, Kay has been a fellow journeyer and guide. Walking with me, reminding me to be more overwhelmed with Christ more than my circumstances. With this book, “Not the Boss of Us”, you get the same privilege to grasp Kay’s ‘hand’, follow her lead and chose a better way of living.

“As I interact with women in the workplace, I see so many getting caught up in material trappings, titles, accomplishments, etc. Sometimes God interrupts when our perspective gets out of whack. He did with me. Not the Boss of Us is a must-read for everyone.”

All of us have times when life feels like a rat race–and the rats are winning! The chaotic pace of modern life can wreak havoc on our health, our families, and our sanity. But Kay Wills Wyma offers an encouraging and uplifting reminder that there’s a better way. We don’t have to let the tyranny of the urgent rob us of our joy.
