Mini Review and Blog Tour: Graceful

Graceful: Letting Go of Your Try-Hard Life by Emily Freeman

Release Date: September 1, 2012
Publisher: Revell
Genre: Devotional
Pages: 176
Format: Paperback
Buy It: Amazon

For the prom queen, the athlete, the bookworm, and the dreamer.

For the good test taker and the strict list maker. For the rule follower, the fear wallower, the messy, and the misunderstood. For the self-critic, the silent judge, and the girl who feels invisible.

For the girl who is tired of trying and the one afraid to fail.

These words are for you.

You don't have to be perfect. But do you trust the One who is?

The God who came to save you also came to live with you, in you, today.

If you've been struggling with expectations--from your parents, your teachers, your friends, and even yourself--Graceful is for you. Are you trying hard to catch up but aren't sure what it is you're chasing? Read and be set free.
This book was so refreshing to me. I grew up always striving to be a people pleaser, and I still am one. I spend my days making sure everyone is happy, and seeing if there is anyway I can do better for someone. This book helped me to realize that I don't have to do that. I am perfect right now, and I'll be perfect five years from now, simply because God is making me who He wants me to be, and that's all that matters.

If you know anyone who is a people pleaser as well, or is even the type of person who just hates themselves, give them this book. It is an eye opener, and it may even change their life!

I received this book free for review for a Revell blog tour. I was not required to post a positive review, simply an honest one.
