Emily Belle Freeman is a coach’s wife, a mother to four children and a few others who have found refuge in her home. She is the author of the forthcoming, “Even This: Getting the the Place Where You Can Trust God With Anything” and several bestselling books, and she is a sought-after inspirational speaker. Her days are spent watching over teenagers, her flock of pampered chickens, and a rabbit that she adores. She finds great joy in studying the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. Her deep love of the scriptures comes from a desire to find their application in everyday life. For a few minutes every day Emily forgets about the laundry, leaves the dishes in the sink, and writes. She coauthors a blog that is a stopping place for hearts seeking all that is good.
In “Even This,” Freeman invites readers to make room for daily personal experiences with God. From the very first page readers will walk down a spiritual path meant to remind each of us that God will meet us in the unexpected, bringing His goodness, giving us cause to trust, reminding us of His capacity.
Filled with deeply personal stories about holding onto belief, daring to trust, and longing for understanding, “Even This” chronicles Freeman’s quest to find God in the everyday moments – with one of the most powerful experiences taking place as she searches for sea shells while walking on the beach-and provides many opportunities for individual introspection. “Yes, God is good and He can be trusted,” Freeman concludes, “And it is the daily discovery of these truths that has the potential to become the greatest journey of a life and lead us closer to Him.”
Ultimately, Freemen hopes “Even This” will encourage and motivate readers to:
- Stop letting fear dictate the depth of your belief through simple daily reflections that will restore your confidence in God.
- Let go of your need to control by discovering what is holding you back from being completely vulnerable in your relationship with God.
- Diminish the power of doubt by coming to understand why the place of deepest asking is where the believing begins.
- Learn how to trust that God may have something entirely different in mind than you could ever anticipate–something better.
