Publisher's Summary

Includes an audiobook-exclusive bonus chapter, “Building a Life You Love When It Feels like Everything Is Falling Apart”!

From best-selling author and founder of the Simplified® brand of organizational tools for busy women comes Growing Boldly, a how-to book that inspires us to imagine big, plan well, and then gather the equipment and the courage to go out and do.

In Growing Boldly, Emily will help you:

  • Believe in who you are and Whose you are...and move past the lies and fears holding you back
  • Figure out what makes you tick and own it confidently
  • Gather all your grit, learned lessons, and tools because it's all valuable
  • Imagine the life you dream of and decide how to make it happen
  • Love your people well so that you create a lasting legacy
  • Clear the clutter and cultivate clarity so you can do what matters most
  • Do the hard work without forgetting to feed your soul

Growing Boldly is:

  • A thoughtful gift for a friend or family member
  • Perfect for Mother's Day, birthdays, or holidays
  • A let's-get-rolling encouragement incentive for yourself

Emily Ley has shown us how to give ourselves grace in Grace, Not Perfection, how to simplify our lives in A Simplified Life, and how to replace busyness with true connection in When Less Becomes More. Now for the first time, Emily draws on her own story of creating a highly successful business - and loving the process - as she teaches us how to move forward in our own vocations and serve others at the same time. This is the start of something good. Get ready to build a life you love.

Can’t recommend unfortunately

I wish I could recommend this book. I bought this after hearing Emily being interviewed on a podcast I love. That was great! Parts of the book make me skeptical of taking her advice because it’s said to be taught from a Christian perspective, but the phrase “people who love differently than you” is used several times which leads me to believe that Emily thinks gay marriage is not a sin. I loved several parts of the book that were very encouraging, but I felt in other parts that the author’s story was shared in a way that came across as bragging.

Really boring

I really do not like to write bad reviews, but I feel it’s important for others to know. The storyline is not at all engaging, and seems like a very generic self-help book. Made it about half way through, and couldn’t finish it.

FANTASTIC!!!

This was a great book on learning how to be the best possible version of yourself in a manner that honors who you are and how you were created. It allows you to be gracious to yourself in the process and encourages you to appreciate the journey. Love it!!!

Simply fantastic

What a breath of fresh air. I have followed Emily Ley for years, supporting both her company and her as an author. This book might be my very favorite. What a beautifully written book of encouragement.

Refreshing!

This book of Emily’s was good about identifying ways that we may struggle to “grow boldly” and then tell the reader that it’s “OK” to struggle. Take a deep breath, express grief, reevaluate, put your head up and your shoulders back, and then move forward. She gives practical guidelines for moving forward, being the best that you can be yet understanding that our relationship with Jesus is crucial.

Doesn’t go deep enough

This book is a good start but just stays on the surface. It doesn’t go deep enough. The focus is mostly on god which was challenging to relate to not being religious.

I really wanted to like this

I have all of Emily's other books and thoroughly enjoyed them. I know she is religious and in her other books the mention of God wasn't too much, but with Growing Boldly it's constant. I'm not religious at all so the huge amount of content re God and Jesus is not something I can take anything from or enjoy. Such a shame as I had been waiting on this book's release for a while.

Not a book telling you to be better but a friend cheering you on

The kind of book that you need when you’re not sure what next. When you’re feeling a pull toward something but not sure what. When you need a friend cheering you on. Thanks Emily for writing this.
