A Million Little Ways by Emily P. Freeman - REVIEWED

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:
There is only one way, one truth, and one life.  One way for the many of us.  One divine nature reflected through the lives of millions of image bearer’s.

God comes down to come in.  And then?   He comes out in a million little ways.”  (p. 77)

This is the most encouraging book I’ve read it quite some time!  This is not a “feel good” book, but an honest evaluation of God’s presence in your life and the way He creates His children to reflect His love and glory for which they were created.  This book will encourage readers to look for God’s fingerprint on their lives, despite life circumstance, and begin to follow His unique plan for their lives.

This is not a “how-to” book.  This is not a theological study.  This is an honest, open-faced look into God’s design for a full-filling life.  The author talks about the doubts and insecurities that are often used as an excuse not to fulfill the purpose that God has designed us for…and she also reminds readers not to place a time limit on God’s purposes.  There is SO MUCH that goes into our artful design!  God uses everything for our good and His glory…and the end result is SO WORTH it!

Please, read this book.  Share this book.  Re-read this book and praise GOD for His grace and mercy! This is a fabulous book!  A book to be read with a highlighter in hand!  This was a true God appointment for me!
