A while back, I began contemplating a decision regarding an upcoming long-term recommitment. During this same time I was dreaming about what I wanted to do professionally once my son graduated. I came across a podcast called The Next Right Thing hosted by Emily P Freeman. As I began listening to her narratives of encouragement on my daily fall walks, her soothing voice penetrated my heart and soul about contemplating my choices.
Her book with the matching name delivers the same soulful content about making decisions. As I read the chapters, I could hear her voice speaking gently to me about my decisions. She comes from a heartfelt place and speaks from a Christian perspective. Emily likes to look at decisions as a “Soul Minimalist”, encouraging you throughout the chapters to follow clues while moving forward taking small baby steps instead of giant leaps. Emily also encourages her readers to confront the false narratives we have about God and allow Him to tell us of His truth not the worlds. She reminds us it is ok to be a beginner and to look for pointing arrows as we explore our decisions. Each chapter guides you gently toward your next steps, encouraging you to do the next right thing. The book will stir your soul especially if you are exploring decisions in your life.
