Book Review: The Next Right Thing by Emily P. Freeman

To be honest, I have known of Emily P. Freeman for a few years now but I had never read anything from her. Not even her blog for some reason. Then I was offered to review her newest book, The Next Right Thing. And honestly? I can’t believe I haven’t read anything from her before because this was pure gold.

The Next Right Thing by Emily P. Freeman

More often than not, we find ourselves in a season where we need to make a decision. Some seasons, there are a series of small decisions to make. Some seasons, we have to make these decisions that feel so big, huge, life changing really. Either way, we make a lot of decisions daily. Sometimes we can get decision fatigued, just plain weary of needing to make yet another decision. Well, at least I know I do. And then there are those seasons when we want to make a choice but no matter how hard we seek the Lord’s guidance and ask guidance from others too, we just don’t know what is the right thing to do.

In The Next Right thing, Emily P. Freeman helps you process through this season. She helps to create space for your soul to breathe so you can discern the next right thing in life. Whether you are in the midst of a major life transition or just weary of the daily decision making, this book is for you. If you are wondering what the next thing to do is or if you fear choosing wrong, this book is for you.

Though I’m not in a season where I need to make a major life decision, I found this book so good. I know I can at times be afraid of making the right choice, though I know the Lord will guide me. But I also know the feeling of getting decision fatigue with all the decisions I need to make about everything. And this book spoke right into those situations, and to a thousand others as well.

So no matter what kind of a season you are in? I’m sure you still have decisions to make every day — from what you are going to wear and eat, to the major life changing decisions. And this book is the best companion to all those seasons and situations. Emily P. Freeman’s style of writing is so full of grace, you will feel the grace washing over you as you read this book. I can’t recommend this book enough, honestly. Please read it. And then buy it for all your friends, too. They will thank you. 

If you are interested in this book, I highly recommend also checking out her website and beautiful blog. I also recommend listening to her podcast called The Next Right Thing Podcast. That podcast is one of the very few I listen to and enjoy, as I am very picky when it comes to podcasts. Emily P. Freeman is such a sweet and gracious soul. I think we all would profit from listening to her wisdom.

I was provided a free copy from Revell Reads in exchange for a review. However, I was not required to write a positive review and these are all my own opinions.
