I received a copy of ”Grace not Perfection for Young Readers: Believing You’re Enough in a World of Impossible Expectations ” ($15.29 Amazon value) in exchange for this post. Any opinions expressed here are honest and my own.
Perfection! A blessing or a curse?
Lots of young ladies this day and age are fighting with perfection in their schoolwork, projects, friends, and life in general. As we all know, perfection isn’t possible, but it is a persona that many struggle with. In adulthood, some still struggle to feel they need the “perfect” life, the “perfect” husband, home, kids, etc.
Grace not Perfection for Young Readers: Believing You’re Enough in a World of Impossible Expectations by Emily Ley is a great book for girls struggling with having the mindset of a perfect life and the stress that goes along with it. With teens and tweens being in such a technology-driven society, it is understandable for the pull of being perfect.
Emily gives great examples of her life and her struggles and how she took a step back from perfection….by having grace. “Throughout these pages, we’ll explore what it means to give grace to yourself and to the people in your life.”
“Grace is a gift. It is a gift from God and it’s a gift you can give yourself.”

*Simply life by simplifying your space, your time, and your mind

You deserve a grace-filled life and Emily is ready to guide you through it.
