A Million Little Ways

A Million Little Ways: Uncover the Art You Were Made to Live, Emily P. Freeman writes about finding a way to fit your art into your life.  If you’re in a phase of life where you aren’t already pursuing your art full-time for whatever reason, this book will really resonate with you.

The book tackles subjects like uncovering your art, overcoming your internal arguments against it (like “it’s a waste of time” or fear of criticism), and finding time for it.  I loved how Freeman countered the idea that art is selfish with the perspective that if our goal is to glorify God there are a million ways to do that in our day to day lives.

I found A Million Little Ways encouraging and would recommend it to anyone who is familiar with the push and pull of balancing a dream with daily tasks, finding time to pursue an artistic goal, or who needs inspiration for finding the glory in the everyday.  While it may ring most clearly to the writer mama set, I think the ideas Freeman writes about are far more broadly applicable.
