    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, the l [...]

    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, this book se [...]

    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 th [...]

    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 is just what [...]

    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 any 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 is reall [...]

    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 feminine [...]

    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 received t [...]

    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 purchasing thi [...]

    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 provides a reminder that [...]

    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 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 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 don t [...]

    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 compariso [...]

    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 beautifully in an [...]

    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 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
