Publisher's Summary

How do we hear from God and discern his will when it’s time to make big decisions? Terry Looper shares a four-step process for doing just that - a process he has learned and refined over 30 years as a Christian entrepreneur and founder of a multibillion-dollar company.

At just 36 years old, Terry Looper was a successful Christian businessman who thought he had it all - until managing all he had led to a devastating burnout. Wealthy beyond his wildest dreams but miserable beyond belief, Terry experienced a radical transformation when he discovered how to align himself with God’s will in the years following his crash and burn. 

Sacred Pace is a four-step process that helps Christians in all walks of life learn how to:

  • Slow down their decision-making under the guidance of the Holy Spirit 
  • Sift through their surface desires and sinful patterns in order to receive clear, peace-filled answers from the Lord 
  • Gain the confident assurance that God’s answers are his way of fulfilling the true desires he has placed in their hearts 
  • Grow closer to the one who loves them most and knows them best 

This audiobook is not another example of name-it-and-claim-it materialism in disguise. Instead, it walks listeners through the sometimes-painful process of “dying to self” in their decisions, both big and small, so that they desire God’s will more than their own.

Game Changer

I loved this book. it revolutionized how I looked at my business and I think it may have even changed my husband's heart on how to move forward on day-to-day decisions as well as large decisions. I took my time going through it going back over the chapters multiple times to make sure that I had a handle on each subject matter before moving forward. the idea of dying to self and becoming neutral in my opinions when asking God what direction to move is going to change my life. any self-employed or small business owner should read this

Too much Self- indulgence . Type A crash

The fireball start to his professional life was enough to realize his business acumen was his drive and industry. I couldn't keep listening because I had thought a special help with prayer was to be revealed. Perhaps it is later, but the initial chapters sounded too much like false modesty.

Third dimension Decision Making

I find Terry's work very practical and comprehensive. Partnering with God in decisions is Wisdom and it is time agnostic.

Excellent work

Must read/listen. This is a wonderfully written personal account of how the author came to the end of himself and the steps he took in seeking the Lord Jesus in restoring his life to the Glory of God.

Very Timely

This book was recommended to be my a friend at a time in my life where I needed to make some decisions in my life. I have found it to be very insightful and convicting. If you are truly looking for God to guide your steps, I recommend starting here with Scared Pace.

Following Gods will

Before reading this book I’d never consider the idea of seeking Gods will although I prayed for His will many times. This book has brought me closer to God and will serve me well as I follow the Lord moving forward. Praying and waiting has helped me to be more focused and has given me greater faith in what the Lord is telling me to do. Thank you , Terry for sharing your format for a sacred pace.

The reluctant "self" help, is my kind of help,

What I mean by the title is that it took him almost his whole career to put this advice into a book. Where there are self-help books that are written by authors whose whole writing career is centered on putting out self-help books, Terry wrote this after someone suggested he teach his God-centered decision-making process, not as a means to keep hammering out Terry Looper self-help books (though I'd like to hear about how he sells).
This, to me, leads to his credibility. He lived a whole life, from high-powered, hyper career and success-oriented young man, to highly successful, balanced, and joy-filled, God-centered man. The fact too, that this is in contrast to other Christian, self-help books and ministries that tell you how to name it and claim it, or that you must sow (to them preferably) in order to receive (not that we shouldn't sow, but it isn't just a wealth-building system). Terry simply explains how he leans on God for decision making, allowing God to answer in His timing, in His wisdom, even when it made Terry's trusted friends and partners uncomfortable.
I recommend to anyone in any position (CEO, entrepreneur, sales, manager, or home-maker) is bothered by the fast-paced, high pressure, material/success focused, world that we live in. To me it shows that God loves to show how his wisdom and plans work best, even when truly waiting and praying faithfully tests our (and our world's) patience.

Perfect timing

I was 36 when I picked this book up. I was crashing for the second time. Learning about honour myself, my health, my relationships is to come first before what I can achieve led me to repent, to feel safe that I now have boundaries and my business into supernatural prosperity that I could never have achieved.
