Jesus lived small moments well, slow moments fully, and all moments free. He lives with us still, on all our ordinary days, creating and redeeming the world both in us and through us, one small moment at a time. It's time to take back Tuesday, to release our obsession with building a life, and believe in the life Christ is building in us--every day.

Mandy Farmer5 Stars Out Of 5Never Despise Small BeginningsMay 28, 2016Mandy FarmerQuality: 0Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I picked up this book because I had enjoyed some of the author's blog writings. LIttle did I know that I would connect with her immediately because we are both in a similar time in life. We are both the wife of a pastor who has recently resigned his position and still in the "waiting on God" moments in life.
In this world of everything in the speed of fast, Emily Freeman, encourages us to enjoy the small things, to slow down and enjoy life. She says, "Small is an invitation to participate in something greater than ourselves." When we take time to sit and watch and listen we find the beautiful again. We are refreshed and we see what God is doing ... in our own lives and in the world. We see how our small part is significant in the whole wide scheme of things.
"Never despise small beginnings". Start by picking up this book and be encouraged!
Alison4 Stars Out Of 5A breath of fresh air.November 20, 2015AlisonQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Simply Tuesday:
My introverted heart breathed a sigh of relief as I sat with Emily Freeman, reading her words. She speaks of what it means to follow Jesus in the season youre in, slowing down, stopping the hustle and believing truth. I fully resonated with her words on being small. So often being and seeming small sounds like a bad thing. But she offers the perspective that it isnt always bad.
As I begin to slow, I see smallness is not a punishment but a gift. Rather than something to fear or run from, my smallness can be a celebration, an invitation for me to lie on my back on the wide, green earth, and let the world spin the sun right up above me. I can breathe a sigh of sweet relief as I realize I had nothing to do with it. The effort is in believing thats true, not in controlling the outcome. I have to remember this. I must. When I dont, when I try to live big, I get tired. (72)
She gives permission to be ordinary, to live well in the small moments. She speaks of taking moments to slow down and enjoy what is true today, not what she wishes were true. There is much grace and courage in between the lines of her writing. I found her vulnerability refreshing and sighed me too with her words on the loneliness of a new season, and the mess of figuring our relationships in light of change. I appreciated her invitation to see what Jesus has done in her own life to transform her. My heart felt full as I finished the last chapter.
Fitzysmom4 Stars Out Of 5Review from Rambles of a SAHMOctober 19, 2015FitzysmomQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Small-moment living in a fast-moving world. To be honest I'm not even sure I know what that looks like. But after reading Simply Tuesday I want to figure it out. Emily Freeman has a grasp on something that so many of us long for.
Chapter by chapter she leads you along the path of slowing your life down and making the most of the moments before you. I love the title, Simply Tuesday. To me it encapsulates what the whole book is about. (Probably why it was chosen as the title!) In a world where it seems we run from one big event to the next Emily encourages us to slow down and enjoy the simple things that happen on an ordinary day like Tuesday.
If you're like me and just tired of being tired or maybe you already know that you are never going to keep up with the Jones' pick up this book and begin the steps to slowing down and tuning in to all that is in front of you. By the closing chapter I believe you will receive the gift of learning how important it is to be present wherever God places you.
I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
Seasons of GraceAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Appreciate the Small MomentsSeptember 25, 2015Seasons of GraceAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I took my time reading this book during my few small moments. I really enjoyed it. I understand how it feels to be homesick, at times unfulfilled, to long for more, bigger, better, or just different. I forget to appreciate the small simple moments, that at times seem to happen to often. At times, I dream of adventure. Nothing wrong with that... But...
Emily reminds us that it's the simple, small moments that really matter. Those mundane days when we feel like we are really not accomplishing anything BIG. Those quiet times in our lives when we seem to be living slow. But oh, how precious those times are.
She talks about our desires, big and small, what God is calling us to do. Being ok with our place in our homes and communities, even if it isn't the idea of success in the eyes of the looming world around us. How to be all God wants us to be, while not necessarily driving down the fast lane of life, or keeping up with the Jones'. How to build benches instead of cities. Stop! and smell the roses. How important community is, smallness, little moments in time. How to trust God's best for us.
In today's day and age, with all the technology, and fast paced life, sometimes being small seems so insignificant. We struggle to find our worth, our place in the world. I love this quote from her book.
"Home is wherever I am because Christ has made his home in me."
"I received this book from Revell in exchange for my honest review."
