A Million Little Ways by Emily Freeman

After I read, "Grace For The Good Girl", I couldn't wait to hear from Emily again. I was excited to receive my copy of, "A Million Little Ways". I can tell you this is a gem of blessings. Emily has a unique gift of writing. She's honest and pure. 

"Maybe you think it isn't the right time to show up. I'm not ready to write that book, try for a baby, take that job, quit the one I've got. There can be a real frustration for those who long to move but believe it isn't the right time. Showing up where you are with what you have is all you can do. You have your two hands, your sick parents, the items on your to-do list. You have your extra deadlines, your diagnosis, the children at your table. You have been given your life, what you hold in your hands, the ground beneath your feet. You have been asked to show up. How do I know? You were born."

Going through the motions? Has fear trampled your dreams? Don't quite know how to live out your life in God's will? This book is for you. I found this book to be simply amazing. Emily stretches you. She's been there. She has walked the journey and is still walking. We gotta show up. We must be ready. When we seek God He will deliver. This is one of those books that helps you get up off the couch, turn the television off, and start writing that book. Emily helps us come to the place where we no longer allow fear to overtake our dreams. She brings us to the place where we are ready to bloom where we are planted.

Emily shares many great quotes that inspire.

"Creativity is not about me. It is not about you. It is not us somehow acting like little gods, creating on our own in the same way God creates...The most we can hope for is to respond appropriately and creatively to who God is and what he means. Creativity is response." Michael Card

"This spiritual life is not native to us, nor can it be developed out of anything we have or are by nature. It must be given to us. So God has given us eternal life, "and this life is in His Son," through whose possession of us when we believed on Him we were born from above. The life of a Christian, therefore, is the life of Christ within us through the Holy Spirit. It is not a life similar to His, it is His life." J. E. Conant

I love how Emily says, "It's time to uncover the shape of your soul, turn down he voice of the inner critic, and move into the world with the courage to be who you most deeply are." Get ready to be blessed, friends. I loved this beautifully written book. Each and every day we can glorify God, as Emily says, in a million different ways. You will not be disappointed by this purchase. It's one that will guide you to knowing a deeper you and finding purpose in every single move. 

This book was a gift from Revell for sharing my review with you.
