Grace, Not Perfection

Emily Ley’s book, Grace, Not Perfection launches next week, just days before I will meet her in person among the lovely ladies at MTH. She is hosting a virtual book signing tonight at 8 EST, which can be viewed here if you’d like to join in on the fun! You can visit this page to learn more about the book and read a preview here. It has been so fun to watch Emily’s book-writing journey (which included many nights in her local Starbucks after her little ones went to bed!) and see the heart behind her story through the snippets she’s shared on social media (this sweet video is my favorite!).


I share this with y’all because I’m passionate about living a meaningful, intentional, engaged life, and Emily has modeled this well for me. She worked hard to build her dream job one step at a time, from designing monograms on her MacBook Air to launching the Simplified Planner and building a well-loved brand that encourages women to hold themselves to a standard of grace, not perfection. Her book is sure to be a treasured one!
