- Review from Rambles of a SAHM by Fitzysmom on 10/19/2015
Small-moment living in a fast-moving world. To be honest I'm not even sure I know what that looks like. But after reading Simply Tuesday I want to figure it out. Emily Freeman has a grasp on something that so many of us long for.
Chapter by chapter she leads you along the path of slowing your life down and making the most of the moments before you. I love the title, Simply Tuesday. To me it encapsulates what the whole book is about. (Probably why it was chosen as the title!) In a world where it seems we run from one big event to the next Emily encourages us to slow down and enjoy the simple things that happen on an ordinary day like Tuesday.
If you're like me and just tired of being tired or maybe you already know that you are never going to keep up with the Jones' pick up this book and begin the steps to slowing down and tuning in to all that is in front of you. By the closing chapter I believe you will receive the gift of learning how important it is to be present wherever God places you.
I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
- Appreciate the Small Moments by Amy on 9/25/2015
I took my time reading this book during my few small moments. I really enjoyed it. I understand how it feels to be homesick, at times unfulfilled, to long for more, bigger, better, or just different. I forget to appreciate the small simple moments, that at times seem to happen to often. At times, I dream of adventure. Nothing wrong with that... But...
Emily reminds us that it's the simple, small moments that really matter. Those mundane days when we feel like we are really not accomplishing anything BIG. Those quiet times in our lives when we seem to be living slow. But oh, how precious those times are.
She talks about our desires, big and small, what God is calling us to do. Being ok with our place in our homes and communities, even if it isn't the idea of success in the eyes of the looming world around us. How to be all God wants us to be, while not necessarily driving down the fast lane of life, or keeping up with the Jones'. How to build benches instead of cities. Stop! and smell the roses. How important community is, smallness, little moments in time. How to trust God's best for us.
In today's day and age, with all the technology, and fast paced life, sometimes being small seems so insignificant. We struggle to find our worth, our place in the world. I love this quote from her book.
"Home is wherever I am because Christ has made his home in me."
"I received this book from Revell in exchange for my honest review."
