An influential millennial widely recognized for her tagline turned international movement, “Your Brokenness is Welcome Here,” Jordan has become a go-to source that women around the world look to for inspiration in their faith, work, relationships, and everyday life.

Jordan Lee Dooley in OWN YOUR EVERYDAY
Offers Readers an Inspiring Blend of Self-Discovery and Service to Others That Society Desperately Needs
Named by Inc. as “One of the Best Books to Buy to Be a Better Person in 2019.”
“This book will meet you right where you are with a giant hug, while also give you a little kick in the pants.” —Audrey Roloff, coauthor of A Love Letter Life, founder of Always More, cofounder of Beating50Percent
Jordan Lee Dooley, a rising star in the podcast, young entrepreneur and faith space, presents in her new book, OWN YOUR EVERYDAY: OVERCOME THE PRESSURE TO PROVE AND SHOW UP FOR WHAT YOU WERE MADE TO DO (May 14, 2019, WaterBrook) an inspiring blueprint on how women can be their most confident, intentional, and joyful selves.
In OWN YOUR EVERYDAY, Dooley—in-demand speaker, blogger, and author—asks readers to stop waiting and start acting. Dooley got her start selling products on Etsy in her college dorm room, quickly growing it into the dynamic online business Soul Scripts—best known for launching the movement “Your Brokenness is Welcome Here.” She hosts the popular new SHE podcast with more than a million downloads in the first three months. Dooley’s more than 600,000 social media followers look to her as a go-to source for daily encouragement in navigating career, faith, relationships, and self-care.
Possessed with energy and wisdom, Dooley reassures her audience and readers: “You don’t have to have everything figured out.” Yet she challenges them to stop looking at the obstacles and focus on the opportunities. In OWN YOUR EVERYDAY, Dooley shares with honesty and humility about her shame over cystic acne, her struggle to overcome an eating disorder, and her chronic need to achieve. She offers a path to overcoming the “toxic trio” of insecurities, unmet expectations, and the pressure to prove.
Her message resonates with young leaders, creatives, people with multiple passions, those who want to live out their faith, and those who feel stuck. Dooley provides practical tools as she shows how to:
· tackle limitations such as disappointment, comparison, distraction, and more;
· overcome the lie that you can’t live your purpose until or unless you reach a certain goal or milestone;
· remove labels and break out of the box of expectations; and
· identify and eliminate excuses, insecurity, and unnecessary stress about an unknown future.
Dooley writes, “I love how Proverbs 16:9 says ‘the heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.’ This has become a verse I cling to when I look at where I am and don’t quite understand what I’m doing here or there, or when I catch myself feeling so wrapped up in my expectations and insecurities that I risk overlooking the bigger plan at work.”
Empowering and urgent, OWN YOUR EVERYDAY asks provocative questions as it serves as a tool to regain perspective and get back on track. Readers will turn to it again and again. Dooley’s unique message pushes readers to look inward, upward, and outward—offering an inspiring blend of faith-fueled self discovery and service to others that society so desperately needs.
