Ep 81 - Emily Ley: Knowing Your Why, Trusting Your Gut and the Miracle of Mornings
When looking to take a leap in life, the best advice often boils down to these three words: trust your gut. Often that's easier said than done, but this week's guest is living proof that believing in yourself - every step of the way - changes EVERYTHING. 

Today she's the Creator of the wildly popular The Simplified PlannerĀ®, bestselling author, and mama of three - but just a handful of years ago Emily Ley was a newlywed with a love for luxe stationery (which was not in the budget), a knack for DIY and a budding Etsy account. As Simplified grew to hit major shelves like Target and Amazon, Emily hit each milestone while staying true to herself and knowing her "why." In this episode hear Emily's encouragement for chasing the thing that lights you up, why she's a stickler for morning routines and the inspirational new project that was born out of a season of feeling forgotten. Consider this episode your reminder to "simplify" and trust that your calling and your instincts really do go hand-in-hand.

Most recently, she spent 9 years at ABC News, during which she was a co-anchor of 'Good Morning America' weekend edition, co-host of 'The View' and host of the 'Journeys Of Faith' podcast. While at the network, Faris reported on everything from politics, news and entertainment to sports and faith, interviewing the likes of Hillary Clinton, Sean Spicer, Joe Biden, Tiger Woods, Reece Witherspoon, to the casts of "Star Wars" and "Avengers".

Faris graduated from Cedarville University ('97). She is a wife, mom, and dedicated follower of Jesus who bases her life and podcast on the foundational principals of Christianity, to love God and love people. She and her husband John reside in South Carolina with their three children.


Great morning listen! Start my day listening to this positive podcast ! Great way to start your day!

Such a wonderful podcast! So nice to listen to pleasant respectful conversations.

Talk less & listen more Paula!

I love Paula- LOVE her! However, I'm consistently disappointed when she talks about herself, her business, her past, her family... most of a show. For instance, I was really excited about the Dan Harris episode, but Paula talked the entire time. I know what she has going on. I'm more interested, during this episode, to hear what DAN has going on. It's a trend I'm seeing for most of her interviews. Please let your guests do 95% of the talking, Paula.
