Description of Grace for the Good Girl: Letting Go of the Try-Hard Life by Emily Freeman

Many of us believe that we are saved by grace--but for too many, that's the last time grace defines our life. Instead of clinging to grace, we strive for good and believe that the Christian life means hard work and a sweet disposition. As good girls, we focus on the things we can handle, our disciplined lives, and our unshakable good moods. When we fail to measure up to our own impossible standards, we hide behind our good girl masks, determined to keep our weakness a secret.
In "Grace for the Good Girl," Emily Freeman invites women to let go of the try-hard life and realize that in Christ we are free to receive from him rather than constantly try to achieve for him. With an open hand and a whimsical style, Emily uncovers the truth about the hiding, encouraging women to move from hiding behind girl-made masks and do-good performances to a life hidden with Christ in God.

5 StarsLike a Breath of Fresh Air
Simply put, I loved this book. Emily Freeman's writing is as beautiful as it is challenging and revealing. Her exploration into the topic of grace revealed truths I had never before seen in Scripture. I didn't even realize until reading this book that I measure my own value and righteousness by my works - the epitome of a "good girl" who hasn't found freedom in the awesome gift of grace. Every woman should read this book as a reminder that if we measure our value by how hard we work, how well we mother, how much we volunteer in our church, or how much time we spend in daily devotions, we are just as lost and oblivious to grace as the unbeliever. Emily made me remember once again that grace is a gift that brings freedom, not a burden that comes with requirements. I will be giving away many copies of this book!
