Book Review - a million little things: Uncover The Art You Were Made To Live by Emily P. Freeman

About The Book:

Do you desperately fear you have nothing to offer the world but secretly hope you're wrong?

You were born to make art. You were made to live art. You might not see yourself as an artist, but you are—in so many unexpected ways. In what you create, whether poetry or pie, sculpture or sand castle, calligraphy or conversation. It's time to uncover the shape of your soul, turn down the voice of the inner critic, and move into the world with the courage to be who you most deeply are.
Creating a life of meaning is not about finding that one great thing you were made to do, it's about knowing the one great God you were made to glorify—in a million little ways.

My Thoughts:

I found Emily Freeman's thoughts and ideas of how we can create art, whether by painting, writing, or any other creative means, can reflect our relationship with God and show our faith.  Her book, "a million little ways," is filled with wonderful inspirational advice and scripture that will appeal to those who are eager to find a way to further express their love, their understanding, and their complete joy in their faith.

I found Emily's style of writing easy to understand and her thoughts to be filled with wisdom and insightfulness. I highly recommend this book as either a personal study or a group study.

About The Author:

Emily P. Freeman is the author of Grace for the Good Girl and Graceful. Whether in her writing or speaking, Emily's words create space for souls to breathe, offering fresh perspective on the gracefulness of the everyday and the sacredness of our inner lives. She and her husband, John, live in North Carolina with their three children. Connect with Emily online at www.emilypfreeman.com where you'll find her blog, Chatting at the Sky.
