Christian perfection Christian perfection is the name given to various teachings within Christianity that describe the process of achieving spiritual maturity or perfection The ultimate goal of this process is union with God characterized by pure love of God and other people as well as personal holiness or sanctification.Various terms have been used to describe the concept, such as Christian holiness, entire Grace in Christianity In Western Christian theology, grace has been defined, not as a created substance of any kind, but as the love and mercy given to us by God because God desires us to have it, not necessarily because of anything we have done to earn it, Grace is favour, the free and undeserved help that God gives us to respond to his call to become children of God, adoptive sons, partakers of the divine Simplified by Emily Ley Planners and organizational tools for women The Simplified Planner is an easy to use, simple agenda created to help you achieve balance in your busy life.

    One Reply to “Grace, Not Perfection: Embracing Simplicity, Celebrating Joy”

    1. I actually feel a little bad rating this book as just "OK," because the author seems so sweet, loving, kind, and grounded in her priorities. I think that for people in the right demographic, this book might scratch them just where they itch, and really resonate. That demographic would include as many of the following traits as possible:femaleChristianmarriedmom of very young childrenfinancially comfortable or well-offa big fan of blogsI daresay that the fewer of these things describe a person, t [...]

    2. I really, really, wanted to like this book given that I like planners, bought one of Emily Ley’s planners, and that we graduated from the same Alma Mater. However, within the first couple of chapters Ms. Ley seemed a little entitled and privileged, not an ideal person to write a self-help book. Rather, I became incredibly annoyed, and felt like this woman should not have access to Pinterest…like serious how many time does she have to mention something being “pinterest-perfect”. Therefore [...]

    3. I was given an advance copy of this book from the publisher.Each time I thought the text was going somewhere, it tended to fall flat with Emily letting us know she has things under control, but here are some tips we might want to try. She offered tidbits like making lists for chores and taking out the trash each morning, but virtually nothing practical on how to release the strongholds of perfectionism and allow ourselves grace when these things don't get done. I also found the contradiction of [...]

    4. This is a beautiful book - in its encouraging words and crisp layout. It is a mix of memoir, inspiration, and practical self-help written for moms, though I think women who don't have children could appreciate it as well. It certainly spoke to me. Grace not perfection. I love that. I need to put signs that say that everywhere I look.I give it 4.5 stars. At times I felt like the author was trying to sell me one of her (admittedly beautiful!) planners. But maybe I'm being overly critical and that [...]

    5. Cannot express enough how much I loved this book! It is such a treasure, it's beautiful but the wisdom within its pages are such a gift. This is a book I'll refer back to so many times in this season of life. Ladies you need this book in your life! If you only read one book this year make it this one!!

    6. How can you not love a book that comes with it's own ribbon book mark? The attention to detail in this book is exquisite. This book's focus is for women with busy lives which include careers, motherhood, relationships and the thought that everything should be done perfectly. I'm not there anymore yet I still thought this book holds great value. A woven thread throughout is her belief system in a God who truly wants you to live life gracefully. She writes honestly and helps all of us to know life [...]

    7. I snagged this one before its release date thanks to all the books we get delivered at work, and I plowed through it one evening after the kiddos I was watching went to sleep. If you're an Emily Ley fan, a mama, someone who has a dream that you're hustling after while trying to find a balance in life, you'll love this one. It didn't really resonate much with me overall, but it sounded exactly like Emily (I follow her on social media and read her posts a lot) and was really a fun book, super femi [...]

    8. This is a lovely book that would be perfect for yourself or to give as a gift. The pictures included of the author and her home and family are beautifully done and add sweetness to the wonderful words inside. I like that there are questions for the reader to answer and go deeper into their own lives with. There are many Scripture verses and bullet points as well that really hit home for the reader. I had not heard of Emily Ley before but her simple wisdom is encouraging and enlightening.I receiv [...]

    9. If this doesn't make my Top 10 Books of 2017, I'll be very surprise. This book had a profound effect on me. It affected my heart and all of the thoughts I had going on in the beginning of the year. While she does promote her planner, she doesn't try to get you to buy it. You really can apply the important part of her planner to any planner.Her ideas and solutions really sparked my own ideas for a better life. This book is well recommended by me. I know of at least three people I will be purchasi [...]

    10. What can I say I loved this book. This book is stunning – not just visually (I mean who doesn’t love a hot pink book with a gold pineapple), but the content….It is full of encouragement, practical advice and exercises (and ones that don’t require special equipment or taking a year out of your life to travel the world) to help you find what is important to you, where you want to be and places you can simplify (Hello word of 2017) your life and appreciate the joy in the everyday. It provid [...]

    11. I think that this book did not appeal to me very much because I'm simply not the person that the author had it mind when she wrote this. I'm sure that mothers of young children - harried and trying to do it all and be it all - would lap this up. For me, it was not a difficult read, but there was little to be gleaned for me, an empty nester still struggling with multiple responsibilities. A nice book - just not for me.One quote I liked:The joy is in the journey, even the hard ones.

    12. I was so excited to find this book on the new shelf at my library. It is designed beautifully and it was a pleasure to read. There are strong references to religion, but overall the book captures enjoying your passions, seasons, and simplicity of life. If nothing else, read pages 197-218. "The peace of contentment is just as valuable as the confetti that comes with achievement." -Emily Ley 209

    13. I enjoyed the practicality of this book, however as a single 21 year old who is not married, no kids etc it was hard to relate to at times. Most of her struggles came from being a mom with a business. Most of her suggestions for improving grace in her life were things that I found myself already doing. I would say this books is definitely geared toward those who are married and have kids. Overall it's a practical book but for a specific audience.

    14. I think I would have loved this book more if I was a Momma. I find this book pretty unrelatable as this is not the stage of life that I am at. I would revisit this book when I am a Mom to give it another shot. If you are a mom, someone struggling with infertility, a stay at home Mom, entrepreneur, and Christian you would probably really enjoy this book. The author is clearly extremely sweet and caring as she shares her life and advice so if that is not your style you will not enjoy this book.

    15. 3.5 stars - I picked up this book because the title caught me - who doesn't want to embrace simplicity and let go of perfection? I like that she has a lot of different exercises you can do, but after a while it seems repetitive. I also feel this book is more for married women and women with families. Overall, I'm glad I did read this.

    16. I picked this up because it's a pretty self help book, but I'm not exactly the target audience for it. Parts were irrelevant to me, but it's a nice book.

    17. This book was essentially written for me: the stressed out, tired working mom of young children. But I really struggled with relating to author because her social media accounts and planners are exactly what I cannot relate to at this stage in my life. The perfect Instagram life doesn't exist and who has time to plan out their life in a planner that is so pretty you almost don't want to write in it? I can barely remember all my children's bags when dropping them off at daycare. So I definitely d [...]

    18. I got this book as a Christmas gift, and am so glad I did. Even though I would never have suspected I would fit in the target audience (I'm not a mom, don't obssess over Pinterest, and don't have Instagram) based on the cover, I found so many parts of this book relatable and insightful. Emily's vulnerability made the book authentic and freeing, and the times for reflection and action steps in the book made it helpful on a practical level. It's so easy for us to get wrapped up in things like comp [...]

    19. Humans do grow weary in doing good. If we do not give up we will reap a harvest. The reading of Grace not Perfection can be likened to an effort in doing good ( for oneself). Continuing past the first few chapters takes some resolve. This book does not offer the fleeting appeal of a suspense thriller nor the lure of an erotic romance, but gut response that there is something in this for me. The knowledge of Grace is often shrouded in too much information. Grace not Perfection paints it beautiful [...]

    20. This was a perfect audiobook for my January get-rid-of-everything-in-this-house haul. I started this book a few months ago, but it wasn't the right time. It hit perfectly, now. Emily's methods aren't revolutionary but they are necessary.

    21. I liked this book more then I expected. A quick read. Relatable for my current season of life. It felt refreshing for me to read her story and relate it to my own life.

    22. Needed this book 30 years ago, but surely derived benefit from some of the "get rid of technology" solutions and clutter suggestions. Great read for young moms!

    23. This was a good book! An easy read too which I liked. I definitely related to a lot of what she talked about and felt inspired.

    24. Oh my goodness !! I just love this book! Not only has the beautiful design and look given me so much pleasure every time I pick it up but I also loved all the wonderful insights gained that pertained to me, my life and my standards.' I hold myself too a standard of grace not perfection.' Genius, right!?
