Book Description

"A Million Little Ways will capture your mind and your imagination with a bold, fresh vision of the life you were created to live."--Mark Batterson, New York Times bestselling author of The Circle Maker

Do you desperately fear you have nothing to offer the world but secretly hope you're wrong?

You were born to make art. You were made to live art. You might not see yourself as an artist, but you are--in so many unexpected ways. In what you create, whether poetry or pie, sculpture or sand castle, calligraphy or conversation. It's time to uncover the shape of your soul, turn down the voice of the inner critic, and move into the world with the courage to be who you most deeply are.

Creating a life of meaning is not about finding that one great thing you were made to do, it's about knowing the one great God you were made to glorify--in a million little ways.

"Emily Freeman's luminous words hand you your rightful birthright. Read them and exhale. These pages just might wow you awake to who you are meant to be."--Ann Voskamp, New York Times bestselling author of One Thousand Gifts

"I read this book during a time where my art, my writing, felt more like wrestling with lions than soaring with creativity. Emily's words ignited something new and fresh and invaluable deep within me."--Lysa TerKeurst, New York Times bestselling author; president of Proverbs 31 Ministries

"Enjoy your last day of wondering if what you do really matters, because this book will forever change the way you see everything you do, from the mundane nightly dishes to your most risky creative endeavor."--Myquillyn Smith, The Nester, author of The Nesting Place

5.0 out of 5 stars Million Little Ways: Uncover the Art You Were Made to Live 2 Oct. 2013
By Ann in Canada - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I found myself shaking my head, yes yes yes through Emily's book. It's fresh. It's needed. It's purposeful. It rekindles the inner artist in all of us --- children of our Creative Father. It's long overdue. I pray this book goes far and wide for the glory of God and the saving of souls! I will be returning to 'A Million LIttle Ways' again and again. God-prints all over this. Only. God.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Life-Changing Perspective 3 Oct. 2013
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Emily P. Freeman knows how to speak to hearts in ways we all need to hear. She challenges the myth that there are "artists" and then there are, well, the rest of us. Instead she shares the life-changing truth that we ARE art. All of us. And when we offer who we are to the world, we touch others, glorify God, and discover what it truly means to fully be alive. If you want more joy, purpose and beauty in your life then Emily will be your courage-giving guide on that journey....starting now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Christian Book I Have Read in Years 2 Oct. 2013
By Jessica Turner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book inspired me in a million unexpected ways. It is very readable, yet beautiful too. I found myself reading it slowly, wanting to really digest the words. Every page has notes and underlinings on it.

Anyone, not just someone who has a natural affinity for art will love this book. I see the world differently. I see the way God has made me with fresh eyes. I wish I could better put into words how fantastic this book is. All I know is that I will be giving it to everyone that I know.

You will not be disappointed by Emily's words. Five stars. Must read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Is the art in you alive? 11 Nov. 2013
By Renee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This weekend I soaked in Emily P. Freeman’s A Million Little Ways: Uncover the Art You Were Made to Live.

I had eagerly signed up to review this book. However, once it arrived, I approached the content warily, thinking I’d find it filled with popular advice about how to find your voice and make it heard and rise above the crowd . . . you know, the things people who get paid for their art tell the rest of us.

But Emily’s insightful take on art encompasses all expressions of God’s beauty and includes all of us who bear His image.
Here’s one of my favorite parts . . .

“The song lyric.
The exchange between actors on the screen.
The image of Paris in the snow.
The tuning of the strings before the show.

Art coming from honest hands shows us beauty, stirs up longing, and touches us deeply.

But what about this:

The extra care the cashier takes with your order,
The way she looks you in the eye,
Asks how you are,
If you need help or a price check,
As if her work is important
And she knows it.

Or . . .

The teacher who makes history come alive,
Telling stories filled with facts and truth and background,
While students learn without even realizing.

Cashiers and cellists are capable of making art because they both have the power to influence, to be fully awake to their Maker, and fully aware of His making them.

What about your own influence? What about the conviction of your true self, pointed out, accepted, and poured out as an offering?

It is my intention to introduce practices to help you uncover the art already alive within you.”

MY TAKE: Emily’s words resonated with me. An image that lingers is her description of showing up at the church nursery to find a violinist—a talented professional musician—playing for the toddlers. As the man passionately poured out his music, the kids continued playing, seemingly oblivious to his song.

Yet his efforts were not a waste—no matter the reception of the audience.

THE BOTTOM LINE: This nonfiction work strengthened and inspired me. I give it my highest recommendation and encourage you to grab a copy for yourself. ***Thanks to Revell for providing a copy for me to review.

5.0 out of 5 stars You are an Artist 2 Oct. 2013
By Kristen Welch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I would never consider myself an artist. Actually after one day in art class in the 7th grade, I realized I'd made a grave mistake when the teacher asked us to draw the proverbial fruit in the bowl and mine looked more like an assortment of minions. But after reading Emily's book, I'm convinced I'm an artist. I still shy away from sketching, but I'm living daily art. We all are, a daily living sacrifice. This book is for the person who wonders if what they do matters. It's an important book. It changes the way you see your everyday living. It reminds you of your purpose and of our ultimate goal: to glorify God. The world is a canvas and this book is your guide to make art right where you are.
