GNP Study Guide
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 downloads 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. Learn to find joy and acceptance in the midst of life’s beautiful messes.
This entire idea of perfection-chasing and how it intermingles with our faith and trust in God always brings me back to one passage in the Bible: Psalm 46:10. As a little girl, my grandmother constantly reminded me, “Emily, be still.” Now, she meant this figuratively and literally. Literally, she meant for me to still my body and quiet my mouth. Difficult, if you were a high-energy little girl like me—always with a story to tell. Figuratively, she was reminding me of her favorite passage: “Be still, and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10. It’s one of the simplest verses, but one of the most profound.
It's amazing! Emily always brings up the things we need the most, but don't know it yet.
