The Emily Ley brand has experienced incredible growth since it was established in 2008, with sales doubling every year. Grace, Not Perfection takes Emily's beloved message from her popular blog, social media feeds, and daily planner to create an inspirational book encouraging women to simplify, prioritize, and allow the grace of God in their lives and the lives of those around them.
As evidenced by the runaway success of books such as The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up and For the Love, women are looking for ways to simplify their space and make time for those they love. Grace, Not Perfection invites readers into an intentionally slower rhythm of life through inspirational writings, tangible tips, creative ideas, and beautiful imagery.
Designed with Emily Ley's signature aesthetic, this book delves into the promises and motivations for pursuing a simpler life -- one that allows you to breathe, to laugh, to enjoy, and to grow -- and gives women tangible ways to simplify their lives to give space to what matters most. With a focus on faith, Emily reminds readers that God abundantly pours out grace on us -- and that surely we can extend grace to ourselves. This book will appeal to women who have been trying to do it all . . . only to burn out. Beautiful and inspirational, Grace, Not Perfection is perfect for self-purchase or for gifting to the special women in your life.
"You don't have to be perfect to embrace grace. Grace is free -- for imperfect and unworthy people like you and me. God wants us to love big and feel deeply alive, free from the traps of perfection and comparison. The truth is, if we take care of ourselves like we're nurturing everyone else, shower love on our people, and pursue the things that make us feel deeply alive, perfection won't sound so necessary, and real-life joy will find us in the beautiful mess of it all."
