Publisher's Summary

Our obsession with bigger and faster is spinning us out of control. We move through the week breathless and bustling, just trying to keep up while longing to slow down. But real life happens in the small moments, the kind we find on Tuesday, the most ordinary day of the week.
In Simply Tuesday, Emily P. Freeman helps listeners:


Stop dreading small beginnings and embrace today's work
Find contentment in the now - even when the now is frustrating or discouraging
Replace competition with compassion
Learn to breathe in a breathless world

Jesus lived small moments well, slow moments fully, and all moments free. He lives with us still, on all our ordinary days, creating and redeeming the world both in us and through us, one small moment at a time. It's time to take back Tuesday, to release our obsession with building a life, and believe in the life Christ is building in us - every day.

Enjoy, fellow introverts

I loved it - as an introvert myself I could relate to the author and appreciate her strengths and weaknesses. I think her insight on appreciating small things and the importance of everyday tasks was great :)

The power of being small

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This book really changed my outlook on life! In a world that's obsessed with being more, doing more, and having more, Simply Tuesday asks the reader if more is really going to make us happy. Hint: it won't.

This book isn't about lecturing you on needing to downsize or become a minimalist. It's about relishing the small things, and realizing that one can make an impact while not being super famous or uber successful. She gives a great example of the negative effects of fame and when I listened to that part, it made me re-evaluate how I market my services as an entrepreneur. I decided that I wanted to go the 'less is more' route and totally changed my marketing approach and began focusing on doing what matters most to me.

I enjoyed Simply Tuesday so much that I ordered a hard copy of the book and have already listened to the audiobook twice!
