STAMFORD, Conn., Jan. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In a book to be published next week, Fred Sievert, a former Fortune 100 "workaholic" president, challenges Christian professionals to exercise their faith to balance home life with their career aspirations.
The book, GOD REVEALED: Revisit Your Past to Enrich Your Future, draws on Sievert's rapid rise to president of New York Life Insurance Company and uses "for reflection" questions to guide readers to become attentive to messages from God in their daily working lives.
While millions of Americans struggle with workplace stress and work life balance, a study released earlier this month found that actively religious employees are more likely to report low levels of anxiety, depression and fatigue and more likely to feel that their lives have meaning.

GOD REVEALED reflects these findings and demonstrates that by relying on God's guiding hand, readers can reduce the stress and anxiety that leads to inefficient, unsatisfying work and life habits.
GOD REVEALED guides readers to:
- Reflect on their own experiences for evidence of God's guidance,
- Consider the possibility that their experiences may have been providential rather than serendipitous,
- Become attuned to watching and listening for guidance from God in the future as they learn to balance work, family and spirituality.
About the Author
In 2007, Fred Sievert retired early as president of New York Life Insurance Company, a Fortune 100 corporation. Feeling he had neglected his spiritual education and development, Sievert enrolled in divinity school where he earned a master's degree in religion in May 2011.
Though Sievert was not raised in an overtly Christian family, he found God through various life experiences that started in adolescence. This foundation guided and often moderated his aggressive pursuit of business success and the American Dream. His stories of encounters with God have been published in numerous printed and electronic periodicals, attracting a large audience of believers, many of whom in turn have shared their own realizations triggered by the work.
