Howard Thurman once said, “Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and go do that, because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

When was the last time you felt that spark? An igniting of your soul? 

As Emily Ley will tell you, there’s inherent magic at the intersection of God’s calling for your life and what makes you feel truly alive. 

Emily is the founder of Simplified, a brand of planners and home organization tools for busy women, the bestselling author of four books, a wife and mother of three. 

She didn’t always have a life she loved, however, and her latest book, “Growing Boldly: Dare to Build a Life You Love,” is a look into her journey to creating one. It’s a letter to women everywhere to believe in yourself, imagine the life of your dreams and chase it with grit and determination. 

She offers five key practices that propelled her in her latest book and she’s on the show to share from her book on pursuing what makes you come alive. 

As she says, your calling is to connect with that spark within you, that unique switch placed there by God, that will ignite your soul. 

So how do you pursue what makes you come alive?
