Simply Tuesday by Emily Freeman

Is your soul being held hostage by hustle? 

If you've grown weary of do more and dream bigger, small-moment living is just what you need. Real life happens in the small moments we find on the most ordinary day of the week. Tuesday holds secrets we can't see in a hurry--secrets not just for our schedules but for our souls. In Simply Tuesday, Emily P. Freeman shows you how to

· embrace today's work
· find contentment in the now
· replace competition with connection
· learn to breathe in a breathless world

It's time to release our obsession with building a life, and believe in the life Christ is building within us--one simple Tuesday at a time.

"I received this book from Revell in exchange for my honest review."

My Thoughts:
I took my time reading this book during my few small moments. I really enjoyed it. I understand how it feels to be homesick, at times unfulfilled, to long for more, bigger, better, or just different. I forget to appreciate the small simple moments, that at times seem to happen to often. At times, I dream of adventure. Nothing wrong with that... But...

Emily reminds us that it's the simple, small moments that really matter. Those mundane days when we feel like we are really not accomplishing anything BIG. Those quiet times in our lives when we seem to be living slow. But oh, how precious those times are.

She talks about our desires, big and small, what God is calling us to do. Being ok with our place in our homes and communities, even if it isn't the idea of success in the eyes of the looming world around us. How to be all God wants us to be, while not necessarily driving down the fast lane of life, or keeping up with the Jones'. How to build benches instead of cities. Stop! and smell the roses. How important community is, smallness, little moments in time. How to trust God's best for us.

In today's day and age, with all the technology, and fast paced life, sometimes being small seems so insignificant. We struggle to find our worth, our place in the world. I love this quote from her book.

"Home is wherever I am because Christ has made his home in me."
