"Bill does a fantastic job of helping people understand how to live relaxed, yet empowered lives in the Father's world."
Pastor of Hour of Power in Garden Grove, CA
"Eventually our well runs dry. Perhaps we dug into the arid ground of perfectionism, anxiety, overwork, or self-promotion. Here's a map to show us where to dig deeply into the well-spring of God's sustaining grace. I am so grateful for Bill Gaultiere, who lived Easy Yoke before he wrote it. He's helped countless harried leaders -- like me! -- drink from the life-giving waters of Jesus."
CEO of Provision Ministries in Irvine, CA
"I took my pastoral staff and elders through Easy Yoke."
Lead Pastor of The Journey Church in Irvine, CA
"Bill has taught me how to rest in Jesus' grace-filled, easy yoke. I've been sharing these insights and practices with my therapy clients and with the pastors and leaders I help in Cloud and Townsend's Ultimate Leadership intensives. We're participating in the emotional healing that God brings!"
Psychotherapist in Newport Beach, CA
"Your Best Life In Jesus' Easy Yoke came to me when I felt stressed out. Jesus was relaxed, why was I anxious? I couldn't put it down! From the opening 'Apprentice Prayer' I was hooked! I needed to come to Christ and learn from Him -- Bill pointed the way. The clear teaching with engaging Scripture meditations showed me that it was possible to actually walk in the peace and power of the Lord -- not by trying harder, but by training in His easy yoke and light burden."
Executive Pastor of Grace Church in Cleveland, OH
"I'm a business guy and I love this book! Learning to abide in the presence of Christ has made me more effective in my leadership on the job and in ministry."
Tax Partner of PwC in Irvine, CA
"I used to think the Christian life was hard work till Bill showed me that Jesus' easy yoke for me is joyful and peaceful. Now I'm teaching this to all of our Bible study leaders and they're sharing it in their groups."
Teacher for Community Bible Study in Seattle, WA
"Your Best Life In Jesus' Easy Yoke has been a field manual for me to learn how to live in the Kingdom of God as a disciple of Jesus and as a pastor to others. Bill's theological, spiritual, and psychological insights have helped me to win the battle with unhealthy emotional patterns. I've discovered how to delight in Christ even in stressful circumstances!"
Rector of Immanuel Anglican Church in Chicago, IL
"We used Your Best Life In Jesus' Easy Yoke to introduce apprenticeship to Jesus at our church. The content is rich with a vision of new life in the kingdom of the heavens! It gives a spiritual formation pattern for overcoming false narratives and daily stressors to step into the heavenly reality. The spiritual experiments and prayers have helped us integrate abiding in Christ into daily life."
Leroy and Mildred Gerner
Care Pastors at King of Kings Church in Omaha, NE
"This book is so rich and practical. I identified with the personal stories from Bill and Kristi and clients they've helped. Being Jesus' apprentice is helping me not to be stressed out in ministry and to overcome my anxiety and hurt from the past."
Children's Pastor in Riverside, CA
"I love The Apprentice Prayer! It's helped me release my anxiety over the day to God's loving control and given me courage. I've shared it with many people."
Lead Pastor of Twin Cities Church in Grass Valley, CA
"What a treasure Easy Yoke is! I'm experiencing steady healing from anxiety, fear, control and worry as I apply the lessons in this very practical book. I'm thankful and amazed at how I'm learning to relax in God's care and protection."
Business Leader in San Diego, CA
From the Author
My inspiration to write this book came from a lunch meeting I had with Dallas Willard. He asked me, "If you had only one word to describe Jesus what would it be?"
"Love... Holy... Lord..."
Dallas told me that his word for Jesus was "Relaxed."
That's what I needed! I wasn't very relaxed in my life and ministry! So I began to study, meditate, and practice being in Jesus' easy yoke -- his rhythms of grace -- and I was amazed to see how I grew in God's peace and power.
For over ten years I've been sharing this with family and friends, pastors and leaders, and all kinds of people. We're all experiencing our best life is in Jesus' easy yoke!

A friend recommended Soul Shepherding website 5 years ago when I opened my business. I Love everything about it. One day I would love to be able to go on the TLC retreat. I am not a pastor, I own a business called Becoming you, it is a hair salon, but my aspiration for it is much more. I feel as though with this book my vision could actually come true!
Mother went home to glory and I needed some insight on dealing with the stress of her death and next steps for dealing with work overload in and out of the ministry.
Easy Yokes provided that insight and some. Wonderfully written with compassion and thoughtfulness. I thoroughly enjoyed the rhythms of grace articulated in this gem.
Thank you and God bless.
