Publisher's Summary

I will hold myself to a standard of grace, not perfection.

As a busy wife, new mother, business owner, and designer, Emily Ley came to a point when she suddenly realized she couldn't do it all. She needed to simplify her life, organize her days, and prioritize the priorities. She decided to hold herself to a standard of grace rather than perfection. This mantra led to the creation of her best-selling Simplified Planner®, a favorite among busy women everywhere - from mamas to executives and everywhere in between.

Grace Not Perfection takes this message from a daily planner to an inspirational book that encourages women to simplify and prioritize. Designed with Emily Ley's signature aesthetic, this book gives women tangible ways to simplify their lives to give space to what matters most. With a focus on faith, Emily reminds listeners that God abundantly pours out grace on us - and that surely we can extend grace to ourselves.

Have you been told you can have it all, only to end up exhausted and occasionally out of sorts with the people you love? Are you ready for a new way of seeing your time? Learn to live a little more simply. Hold yourself and those you love to a more life-giving standard in Grace Not Perfection, and allow that grace to seep in to your days, your family, and your heart. Ideas include:

  • List making 101 - tips to create effective to-do lists and get through them one step at a time
  • Simplify your life by simplifying the three major areas: your space, your time, and your mind
  • Strategies to center your day around an intentionally slower rhythm of life

    "I laughed, I cried, and I walked away a better person"

    Emily does a wonderful job of story telling and making you feel like you are listening to a good friend. She is honest and open and you walk away from her book with practical action items to organize your life as well as encouraging words for life's difficult moments. I high recommend this book to anyone who's a momprenuer trying to do it all, you are not alone!

    "Love it!"

    This book has an important message. It's a message about giving yourself grace and that it's ok to not be perfect.

    "Good book but..."

    I loved the idea of this book. Once I started listening to it, it seemed like a billboard for the Simplified Planner that the author created and sells. I honestly was tired of feeling like I needed to buy this planner.
    I also feel the book is geared more for mothers with younger children.

    "A bit of everything"

    I really didn't know what to expect going into this book. I found Emily Lay after following Lara Casey on social media. I still can't tell you exactly how it impacted me most, but I can certainly say it made an impact. It's what I needed at the moment in so many ways. It's a short read and well worth it. No matter what your situation is at this moment.

    "Fabulous!!!"

    I enjoyed this book so much! Every last detail. It takes a lot to keep my attention, and I finished this book in a day. I related to so much in Emily's words and in her heartaches and triumphs! Wonderful book! Thank you for sharing your story, Emily Ley!
