The Next Right Thing by Emily P. Freeman Book Review


The Next Right Thing: A Simple Soulful Practice for Making Life Decisions by Emily P. Freeman is a delightful and heartfelt read from a popular podcast presenter.  Her vision is simple, do the next right thing.  If you struggle with "decision fatigue" as Emily refers to it, this book will show steps to "create space for your soul to breathe."  Each chapter begins with a timely quote on the topic of the chapter.  Emily weaves her story along with inspiring actions and new ways of thinking to address the topic.  She ends the chapter with a short and hopeful prayer along with a simple practice to guide the reader to give life to the actions outlined in the chapter.  Emily is a master in keeping the attention of her readers as she shares her thoughts and musings.  The ideas presented are shared in quiet expectation.  She is inviting her readers on a magical journey by just choosing the next right  

Last summer a friend of mine who knows I listen to podcasts asked if I had heard of Emily P. Freeman's The Next Right Thing Podcast.  I had not, but as soon as I heard the title I knew I had to check it out.  I started at the beginning and devoured the words I heard through my ear buds.  Emily's sweet voice floated through my mind and caused me to unearth some hidden thoughts and ideas that I never knew existed.  I was so excited to read this companion book and I could almost hear Emily's voice reading it to me as I devoured it too.   I crave the simple and quiet spaces in my soul where I can breathe and connect with who I really am.  Emily's book is just the right pace to spur me to make decisions with ease and confidence.
