As a busy wife, new mother, business owner, and designer, Emily Ley came to a point when she suddenly realized she couldn't do it all. She needed to simplify her life, organize her days, and prioritize the priorities. She realized that she had been holding herself to a standard of perfection, when what God was really calling her to do was step into his grace.
In this four-session video-based study (DVD/digital video sold separately), Emily describes the journey that led to her pursuing a simpler life-one that allowed her to breathe, laugh, and grow-and provides ways for others to simplify their lives. She reminds each of us that God abundantly pours out grace on us, and because of this, we can surely extend grace to ourselves. This message is for everyone who has been trying to do it all... only to burn out.
As Emily writes, "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."
Designed for use with Grace, Not Perfection Video Study (sold separately).
