How Many Skinny Rabbits Are You Chasing After?  Oct 16, 2009
Have you ever chased a Skinny Rabbit? No, not a real rabbit, but have you chased something you've longed for, like a promotion, a new mate, a new you? Only to find out that the path to that "success" led you to depression, exhaustion, no friends, and almost dying?

Dr. John Trent has studied the issue chasing after a skinny rabbit. He begins with a very enlightening story of the Wise Hunters hunting the Great Stag and one of the members of the group veers off because of an illusion they see and just have to chase. After they catch the illusion, it's nothing but a skinny rabbit.

The book is easy reading and I finished it very quickly. It isn't hard to figure out what may lead us down Rabbit Trails...the idea is to find the courage to get off of it while you can. Dr. John Trent threw out some scriptures to keep in our hearts to help us not go down a path of doom and gloom.

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart"- Proverbs 3:5

"In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps"-Proverbs 16:9

The most enjoyment I got from this book were the scenarios. The different people who have been led down a path to Skinny Rabbit Brides (hilarious!), Promotions where you just work all day and spend no time with family, chasing financial success, and even being too active in church!

Yes, it is possible to be very active in church doing "good" things but not God things as Trent says.

Read the book and be blessed!
 
Entertaining self-help  Aug 4, 2008
I don't read very many self-help or inspirational books that are as entertaining as they are helpful. This book was an exception. His writing was very clever and witty. He caught my attention from the first page and kept it to the very end. Highly recommended!!
 
Clever and well written, a must-read  Jul 15, 2008
The treadmill of modern life can wear anyone down. Between work, family and financial responsibilities, it's easy to see why exhaustion is becoming a way of life for countless people. Yet running yourself ragged doesn't have to be a way of life. According to Dr. John Trent, president of Encouraging Words and StrongFamilies.com, there are a number of reasons why people are wearing themselves out. They are known as "skinny rabbits."

In his latest book, CHASING SKINNY RABBITS, Trent identifies the rabbits and their bunny trails that distract and lead people to negative places that sap their time, energy and resources.

"Beware! There are Skinny Rabbits all around you. They lurk at work and hide in the bushes all along your career path. They can lure you away from anything worthy --- a great marriage, a career goal, a lifelong friendship. They can wreak havoc in small groups, workplace teams, and even churches. Chasing a Skinny Rabbit does worse than just get you off track: it will lead you further and further down a path that will drain the very life from you --- killing your excitement, your creativity, your drive." Trent believes that all too often Skinny Rabbits leave people physically, mentally, spiritually and financially bankrupt. Worst of all, most individuals don't realize that they're chasing a Skinny Rabbit until it's too late and they've lost precious time, relationships or even their life.

So what do these dangerous creatures look like? Trent compares them to popular rabbits from literature, television and culture. Among other bunnies, The Magician's White Rabbit looks appealing but disappears in a moment's notice. The White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland is always late, and if you follow him you'll find the door already locked. Peter Rabbit looks cute, but if you're not careful you'll end up on Mr. McGregor's trophy wall. Bugs Bunny will outwit you --- and raise your debt, blood pressure and frustration level. The Playboy Bunny is seductive and will lead your imagination astray. And the Energizer Bunny keeps going and going, but you never know where.

Basically, a Skinny Rabbit is "anything that pulls you away from a path of purpose and life and leads you into a wilderness of exhaustion and regret."

So how do you know if you're chasing a Skinny Rabbit? Trent says that it's important to pay attention to the trail. He identifies some of the most common trails as well as the pits, swamps and caves you may find yourself living in if you follow a trail too long. They include the "All-take-and-no-give-trail," whereby a relationship leaves you tapped and spent, or the "Possessions that possess us trail," whereby materialism fuels our decisions and life. On the "Perfect Body Trail," the desire for beauty taps our time, energy and money. One of the more surprising trails is the "Big Family Event Trail," whereby organizing a family event leads to more stress and hassle than celebration and joy.

The solution to avoid chasing Skinny Rabbits is to become a wise hunter and pursue the Great Stag --- a relationship with God --- instead. Trent provides practical tips on how to get off of a Skinny Rabbit trail and follow a better trail entirely: the path of peace.

CHASING SKINNY RABBITS is an easy-to-read, thought-provoking book that forces readers to examine where their time and energy are being spent. Though the idea is simple, the implications for change are enormous if placed into practice.
