A Standard of Grace: a guided journal

See the source imageI first discovered Emily Ley when I received Grace Not Perfection before its release from her publisher! I was immediately hooked and LOVED her…we both have an older son and boy/girl twins!! How cool is that! Anyway, If her name sounds familiar but you haven’t read her books you probably know her from her HUGHLY popular Simplified Planner {Its AMAZING!} But today we are here to talk about her newest creation A Standard of Grace a guided journal!

Not only is it STUNNINGLY gorgeous but it is awesome…more about my thoughts in a sec, but first lets hear from the publisher!

Are you standing in the middle of opportunity and being overwhelmed of crazy when you really need calm? Not sure where to start to simplify and bring grace and peace to your home?

A Standard of Grace is a gorgeous four-color, joy-inspiring guided journal designed to help you nurture your dreams, discover your hopes, and pay attention to those things you hold dearest to your heart.  With quotes, journaling prompts, and Scripture, bestselling author of Grace, Not Perfection and A Simplified Life Emily Ley, encourages you to reach for the life of you want—all while holding to a standard of grace.

Both gorgeous and useful, A Standard of Grace will make a lovely gift and keepsake as well as be a powerful tool for both embracing where you are while reaching for your goals and dreams. Through practical, easy-to-follow prompts for journaling and reflection, Scriptures, and inspiring imagery, you’ll find an accessible, inspirational journal that to enjoy personally and to share with friends.

There have been quite a few “Guided” journals out recently and honestly most have fallen flat, but A Standard of Grace is not like all the others. It’s perfect for this busy mom who has very little time to herself. A Standard of Grace is broken down in 52 weeks, each week focuses on one or two journaling prompts…I LOVE this aspect, some times I find daily prompt journals to be a bit overwhelming or underwhelming, the fact that this one focuses on less means that we are really able to mull over what you are writing in your journal!! Each week starts with a VERY meaningful Bible verse {LOVE} and a little paragraph where Emily shares her thought, feelings or just an observation {again LOVE} It truly feels like you are journaling with your friend who cares and deeply loves you!

Lets just talk a moment about the prompts, so are way easier than others, some you can probably write with your eye closed, other prompts however may truly take the week to do, invoking emotions that you maybe didn’t know were right there. This journal just came out so of course I haven’t finished it but I have thumbed ahead and I feel like Week 10  “Surrendering Control” and Week 32 “Grace for the Guilt” may be a bit difficult and emotional.

I LOVE this Journal so so so much and I cannot wait for you to get it too! I want to get this for my sweet BFF Sara who is also a twin mom with not much time on her hands, but I know would LOVE it! 

I HIGHLY recommend A Standard of Grace and all other Emily Ley books, I will be ordering her newest planner soon so keep an eye out for that review!
