Emily Freeman’s latest book, A Million Little Ways, is a work of art. Rather, she declares that YOU are a work of art, a poem breathed out by our Creator to live as that masterpiece everyday. Throughout, the reader is encouraged to examine self and “uncover the art you were made to live”. Notice that she does not implore us to find the art we were meant to make.

By looking within, back, up around and beneath we begin to discover our art so that we may release it into the world for the benefit of others, and ourselves but ultimately to reflect the glory of the One who made us. Just as a tree grows up strong, with deep roots and reaching branches, it does not shy away from its form, coloring or changes through seasons. It is always what it was meant to be and eventually becomes more than just a tree.
I wasn’t sure if I would finish the book for stopping every sentence to ponder or pray. Once I did make it to the end, I immediately turned back to the beginning to start again. I think you may be inclined to do the same.
