I bought this book on a whim while grabbing some other items. I read it cover to cover and it was truly life changing. The book itself is beautiful with thick pages and is a very easy read. Emily shares her moments of vulnerability and her challenges that resonate in such a profound way. She simply and articulates her approach to creating a more meaningful life that is based on the things that really matter. The book includes space to write down your reflections and inspires you to really think about how to focus your time and energy on the things that truly matter. I am an avid reader and this book is one that I will go back to over and over again. In a world where women are trying to do it all and achieve an unattainable level of perfection, Emily provides simple, yet often overlooked strategies and guidance for making your life more meaningful. I rarely write reviews, but I felt compelled to do so for this book. I wish I had the wisdom and self-awareness at her age to live with more focus and intention and to approach my efforts with more grace and less perfection. I plan on buying this book for many of my friends who struggle every day with the daily demands that compromise our relationships and our ultimate happiness. There is nothing utterly groundbreaking in this book, but it is written in a simple and beautiful way that truly helps adjust your lens and deeply evaluate how your time and priorities are aligned. It is a perfect reset button when life gets utterly overwhelming and you need to adopt a new and sustainable approach for managing the accumulating chaos that inevitably punches us all in the gut and takes our breath away at some point in our lives. I wouldn’t call this a self-help book, but rather a poignant and beautifully written reminder about making time for the things that truly make and define our lives.
I received this book as a gift from my daughter. Very practical and scripture based. I felt like the author knew just what I needed to hear and the experiences she talked about rang true to me. I've bought copies to give to two expectant mothers at my church.
