About the Journal

When we have a decision to make, what we want more than anything is peace, clarity, and a nudge in the right direction. If you have trouble making decisions because of either chronic hesitation or decision fatigue, Emily P. Freeman offers a fresh way of practicing familiar but often forgotten advice: do the next right thing. 

After the release of The Next Right Thing book in 2019, this journal is a resource designed to help you personalize the decision-making practices from the book.. 

With seasonal and monthly pages of insightful questions, personal lists, and guided decision-making techniques, this journal will help you to:

  • clear the decision-making chaos
  • quiet your fear of choosing wrong
  • find the courage to finally decide without regret or second-guessing

Whether you're in the midst of a major life transition or are weary of the low-grade anxiety that daily life can bring, you need a little space for your soul to breathe so you can discern your next right thing in love.

If you received an "oops" copy

If you ordered a book from Amazon on or before January 5, there is a chance you may have received a Print-On-Demand copy of the book.

We are so sorry! We want you to have the real thing with the proper ink and paper.

Here's how to know and what to do next:

1. The true version is printed in green ink on the inside. The oops copy is gray and hard to read. (In the photo, the true version is on the front/left).

2. If you have an oops copy, fill out this form so that my publisher can get you a new book in the mail, for real this time.
