A Standard Of Grace: Guided Journal by Emily Ley – Book Review
Those of you who are familiar with Emily Ley – the creator of the very popular minimalist Simplified Planner and the author of A Simplified Life – know you can expect several things from the books that Emily writes.
Beauty… simplicity… quality… and a knack for getting to the heart of what it is we need to hear.
In A Standard Of Grace: Guided Journal, Emily infuses all of these qualities we’ve come to expect from her into a beautiful book that is part Christian devotional and part personal journal!
The focus of this book is grace: how do we stop holding ourselves up to these impossible standards of imperfection and start living a more peaceful, simple, and joyful life?
Through simple yet powerful weekly guided devotions and journaling prompts and beautiful full-color photographs, Emily encourages us to reflect on and answer questions that can redirect the course of our life.
For instance, Emily asks us:
Where did you get the idea that you had to be “put together”
in every area of your life?
Who defined perfection for you?
What type of standard are you holding yourself to?
What do you expect from yourself on a daily basis?
She also gives us weekly affirmations to help us change our thoughts:
I will hold myself to a standard of grace, not perfection.
What I like about Emily’s book is that it is beautiful, inspiring, and minimalistic in its presentation (this book will not overwhelm you if you’re in a busy season) – yet it is impactful in the questions it asks you to ponder.
An insightful question can change the course of your life. If you’re interesting in a book filled with powerful questions and the space for you to record your personal insights, I encourage you to pick up a copy of A Standard Of Grace and begin your transformative journey through this inspirational journal!
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
