Feeling worn thin? Come find rest.


The Blue Ridge Parkway meanders through miles of rolling Virginia mountains. It’s a route made famous by natural beauty and the simple rhythms of rural life.

And it’s in this setting that Hannah Anderson began her exploration of what it means to pursue a life of peace and humility. Fighting back her own sense of restlessness and anxiety, she finds herself immersed in the world outside, discovering a classroom full of forsythia, milkweed, and a failed herb garden. Lessons about soil preparation, sour mulch, and grapevine blights reveal the truth about our dependence on God, finding rest, and fighting discontentment.

Humble Roots is part theology of incarnation and part stroll through the fields and forest. Anchored in the teaching of Jesus, Anderson explores how cultivating humility—not scheduling, strict boundaries, or increased productivity—leads to peace.  “Come unto me, all who labor and are heavy laden,” Jesus invites us, “and you will find rest for your souls.”


So come. Learn humility from the lilies of the field and from the One who is humility Himself. Remember who you are and Who you are not, and rediscover the rest that comes from belonging to Him.

Beautiful metaphors, mission and community are missing
Great illustrations and beautiful quotes. Offered some life changing challenges to trust God. Worth a read but largely silent on the importance of humility to prioritize sharing the message of grace with lost people. Also missing was the importance of living in deep community to hear from others and fail and receive grace from God’s people (2 Tim 4:2, 1 Corinithians 13, Romans 13 and so much of Proverbs)

Love the book, didn’t love the reader.
I love this book, but the reader for the audio version doesn’t know how to pronounce words! Theologian, prelude... Where was the audio editor?

I highly recommend this book!
What a refreshing book! Hannah does a wonderful job explaining how we are dependent on God to reflect God, how pride shows up in so many places and how freedom can be experienced through humility.
The audio version made it feel like I was sitting and listening to Hannah the whole time.
