Publisher's Summary

You're strong. You're responsible. You're good. But…as day fades to dusk, you begin to feel the familiar fog of anxiety, the weight and pressure of holding it together and of longing left unmet. Good girls sometimes feel the Christian life means doing hard work with a sweet disposition. We tend to focus only on the things we can handle, our disciplined lives, and our unshakable good moods. But what would happen if we let grace pour out boundless acceptance into our worn-out hearts and undo us? If we dared to talk about the ways we hide, our longing to be known, and the fear in the knowing? In Grace for the Good Girl, Emily Freeman invites you to release your tight hold on that familiar, try-hard life and lean your weight heavy into the love of Jesus. With an open hand, a whimsical style, and a heart bent brave toward adventure, Emily encourages you to move from your own impossible expectations toward the God who has graciously, miraculously, and lovingly found you.

    "Wow! Exactly what I needed!"

    I wish I could hug Emily and tell her thank you! I am going to put to practice the things she taught me in this book immediately. I will probably buy a paperback version and put it on my shelf of best and favorite books. Would recommend to everyone even men could learn from this book. Love Love Love!

    "Amazing book!!!"

    This book brought life to my soul. I was that good girl always looking for
    Approval. But I know now I can rest in the arms of my Heavenly Father and not have to strive for acceptance.

    "Wonderful book!!!"

    This was very well written book. It tells us exactly what we are with and without resting in God. One of the best descriptions I have ever read about living in Him and not in ourselves. Love it and would recommend it to anyone looking for a simple explanation to the challenge of living in Christ.
