Move from running-on-empty
to spent-and-content

Exhale is for the woman suffocating under the pressure of being all things to all people; of filling every unfilled spot at church, work, and home; of trying to do it all right, make decisions that benefit everyone else, and keep everyone happy.

Rather than adding more to your to-do list, Amy Carroll and Cheri Gregory show you how to

  • lose the ill-fitting roles you’ve been trying to fill so that you can be lighter and freer
  • love your truest, God-created self with all your glorious gifts instead of trying to shove yourself into a mold
  • live your one and only life in a way that you know truly matters

This isn’t a time-management book filled with how-to lists and calendar tools. Instead, it walks you through a process that releases you from the things that have created unbearable pressure.


Then you’ll be able to live the combination we all long for:

  • fulfilling the desires of your heart
  • loving your people well, and
  • bringing glory to God

Freedom. That is what I am beginning to grasp. Through the reading of Exhale, I found myself sensing new freedom in my life as I began to put in place the principles Amy and Cheri lay out so clearly. I’m taking new steps toward losing who I’m not, loving who I am, and loving who I am thanks to this book. I’m so grateful for it!

Have you ever suddenly realized you’re holding your breath? Your stomach is tight, your shoulders tense, your smile forced. Then, woosh, you breathe and everything changes. This book is like that for a stressed-out woman’s heart. You read and everything changes.

In a culture saturated with pressure to always do more and be more, Amy Carroll and Cheri Gregory offer a different way. Like fresh air to women who can’t catch a breath, Exhale lifts the burdens you were never meant to bear and then infuses your day with compassion, wisdom, and practical steps to live your one life well. This book isn’t one more to-do; it’s permission to do less.

Hey you. The one gripping your list, making your plan. Worrying, stressing, and wondering how you’ll ever please everyone and get it right. Aren’t you tired of holding your breath? Aren’t you ready to exhale?
