An empowering girlfriend’s guide to a purpose-driven life, from the young entrepreneur and rising star behind SoulScripts and the SHE Podcast   

“This book will meet you right where you are with a giant hug while also giving you a little kick in the pants.” (Audrey Roloff, New York Times best-selling coauthor of A Love Letter Life, founder of Always More, cofounder of Beating50Percent)   

Does it ever seem like you still have to find your purpose or that you’re stuck with “unfigured-out dreams”? Do you feel the pressure to prove yourself or worry about what others will think?    

You are not the only one.   

From accidentally starting a small business instead of using her college degree, to embarrassing herself onstage in front of thousands, to wasting time worrying about what others think or say, Jordan Lee Dooley knows exactly how that feels - and she’s learned some important lessons about living a purposeful life along the way.   

An influential millennial widely recognized for her tagline turned international movement, “Your Brokenness is Welcome Here,” Jordan has become a go-to source that women around the world look to for inspiration in their faith, work, relationships, and everyday life.   

Now, in this approachable but actionable listen that’s jam-packed with practical tools, Jordan equips you to   

  • tackle obstacles such as disappointment, perfectionism, comparison, and distraction 
  • remove labels and break out of the box of expectations 
  • identify and eliminate excuses and unnecessary stress about an unknown future 
  • overcome the lie that you can’t live your God-given purpose until you reach a certain goal or milestone  

If you ever feel you need to shift your mindset but don’t know how, this book will help you overcome shame, practice gratitude, and redefine success.   

Praise for Own Your Everyday 

“In a world where we often feel pressured to move forward as quickly as possible, the words that fill these pages shine light on this beautiful truth: there is a fulfilling life to be lived right here, where we are.” (Morgan Harper Nichols, artist and poet)    

“Authentic, intuitive, and compassionate, Jordan clears the clutter from our minds and hearts while enthusiastically guiding us to discover our own authentic purpose.” (Jessica Honegger, author, founder and co-CEO of Noonday Collection)

Not your average self-help book.

From the first time I stumbled across Jordan on Instagram, her words & heart behind all she did captured my attention. Since then her words have provided moments of epiphany, made me laugh & at times even brought tears to my eyes from the unbelievable level of relatability. Her resources and the community she facilitates around them, beginning with the message "your brokenness is welcome here" have helped me to grow and open up in ways I never had before.

Since the launch of her book, Own Your Everyday, I've learned the backstory behind the wide variety of projects she's pursued and shared with the world with greater depth than she's ever shared before; from the very start of lettering and her online shop to everything that followed. Carefully selected stories of her own insecurities and hardships she has personally faced are seamlessly woven into the practical advice offered throughout this book, since as rumor has it, Jordan doesn't put her pants on any differently than the rest of us, she's not some fancy pants lady, she's still figuring life out, but has provided so much value through being open about her life while doing so!

I snagged the audio version on Audible during the week it launched and have been loving it enough that it's on repeat!! I love that the audio book is narrated by Jordan especially knowing that every story is so personal and specifically selected to meet the needs of women in this day and age struggling with comparison, perfectionism and the pressure to prove... even or perhaps especially when the expectation is only set by and for ourselves.

Own Your Everyday is a resource for women of all ages, the kind that you highlight and write notes in the margins, then pass on from one friend to the next. The one you tell your mom she's gotta read, or slip to your boyfriend's little sister after she confides in you. The resource you use as a quick reminder when you're in need of a kick in the pants but also the one you read in full when you're longing for a long warm hug.

Jordan challenges common self-help extremes with some down to earth realtalk and actionable steps. As a new grad, I'll be the first to say this is especially beneficial for anyone going through a transition like graduation. But I know its something I can look to time and time again as I encounter career changes, new friendships, relationship changes, marriage, motherhood and so much more.

Just got my hardcover copy signed last night at the Chicago stop on J's tour. Meeting her in person was almost surreal, yet every word was so very down to earth and practical, but that's 100% J's style and exactly what the book conveys! Whether turning the pages or listening along, I'm confident that women will continue to find a fast friend in Jordan as they experience Own your Everyday.

Like a Cosmo article

I wanted to like it, I really did but there was no substance anywhere. The author shares stories from her life and then add on "advice" to it. And it's very basic advice, like don't hide behind make up. Maybe this works better for young women in their late teens or early 20ies that have yet to discover life but I'd still not recommend it to them. And just because you mention God three times and add one bible verse does not make this a Christian advice book. I'm so disappointed and will try to return it, feels like I wasted good money.

A Book for Every Woman

This book has been a life changer and I'm adding it to my annual reading list. Though I don't struggle with a thousand different passions, I still struggle with having to prove myself. This book teaches young women to stop proving themselves and start pursuing themselves and their purpose or many purposes. Thank you Jordan for changing a life.

Loved it so much, I’m purchasing the hard copy!

I just loved how relatable this book is to ANY HUMAN WOMAN who will listen! If you’re into audiobooks, then Jordan’s voice is super soothing haha! This matters to me, because I will turn an audiobook off if the reader’s voice makes me cringe. I’m headed to Target to buy the hard copy of the book! I loved it so much, and it’s filled with so much valuable information that’s worth marking up and taking notes. I was really able to relate with all her stories. Every feeling she felt is what all women feel, and it all came with solutions. Simple, actionable solutions. I loved it! So inspiring! AND so raw and authentic!

I really wish there was more

I love Jordan and her content is really good for a young audience just starting out in life. I can tell through her advice that she is very wise, disciplined and mature. I will give this book to my young teenage daughter one day, but for a woman, this isn’t it. I’d love to see her give advice to a seasoned woman and not just young women who haven’t experienced much of life. I’d recommend her self-published book to new wives or engaged women. That was insightful!

LIKE THE MOST ENCOURAGING CHAT WITH A BEST FRIEND

A MUST LISTEN. You know that feeling you get after having a pep talk with your best friend? Or that peaceful, grateful heart you have after a Sunday sermon that hit you in all the right ways?! Yeah, I’m talking those kind of feels in one perfect present that is this book.

Truly felt as if the author was sitting in my living room pouring out advice and encouragement like a best friend I’ve known for years

Jordan pours out genuine love, authenticity, and encouragement to help redefine unhealthy notions about what living successfully and purposefully really looks like. Every second was gold!

Completely inspiring

Holy smokes! If you are looking for a booking that motivates, inspires, and gets you moving this is your book! I didn’t really know anything about Jordan and how she came across in the book made me feel like we were old friends. If your ready to start owning your dreams and making them a reality GET THIS BOOK!
