I cried tears of relief while inhaling Present Over Perfect. I cried because I'd completely forgotten that I don't have to earn worthiness, hustle for love, or fight to belong. Shauna's words--equal parts elegant and urgent--invited me to remember that my worthiness, belonging, and beloved-ness are birthrights. I can't think of a more important, more desperately needed invitation.--Glennon Doyle Melton, author of Love Warrior and the New York Times bestseller Carry On, Warrior, founder of Momastery and Together Rising
I have already read this book seven times. It's about pursuing the present over the perfect--but it is nonetheless a nearly perfect thing, a nearly perfect book. Shauna speaks exactly to my condition.--Lauren Winner, author of Girl Meets God, Still, and Wearing God
I've watched Shauna walk this journey away from proving and pushing toward connection and grace, and as a friend, I'm proud of her. As a reader, I'm thankful to have these pages as an inspiration and guide. For all of us who yearn for meaningful, connected lives but find ourselves sometimes settling for busy, her words are the push we've been waiting for.--Donald Miller, New York Times bestselling author of Scary Close and Blue Like Jazz
Most of the teachers I've had didn't think they were teaching me anything; they just thought we were friends. Shauna is that kind of friend, and this is that kind of book. As you turn these pages, you'll be reminded about what you have loved, where you've found your joy, and perhaps what you've misplaced along the way. Most of all, you'll be guided into an honest conversation about your faith and where you want to go with it.--Bob Goff, author of Love Does
Returning to the theme of decluttering everyday life and concentrating on what is truly important, Niequist (Savor) weaves together a series of essays concerning her personal experiences overcoming a life overwrought with busyness, stress, and feelings of inadequacy. After years of frantic living, Niequist has come to the realization that she's missing out on the beauty of everyday life with her husband and children--that it will all speed past her if she doesn't slow down and simplify, learn how to say no to demands on her time, and stop worrying about others' opinions of her. 'Present over perfect living is real over image, connecting over comparing, meaning over mania, depth over artifice, ' she writes, explaining along the way that she's found a new 'strength' in embracing quiet surroundings and in spending time alone. To emphasize her points, she quotes Scripture, but does so sparingly and intentionally--more often than not, her included references to her faith are intended only to bolster her own experiences of mindful living. Her style is conversational, friendly, inviting, and never heavy-handed, making the book accessible to people of all faiths. Women will find the advice hits closest to home. Niequist's latest book is her most satisfying blend of mindfulness, scripture, and self-help to date, offering readers the blueprint for a life lived in the real instead of the ideal.--Publishers Weekly
Shauna awakens our desire to not miss our lives. Because that pursuit costs us our distracting habits, we need motivation beyond disciplines and rules. We have to want to really live and be with our people and enjoy this gift of a life that God has given us. Shauna's life makes me not want to miss mine, and her words here will make you not want to miss yours.--Jennie Allen, founder and visionary of IF: Gathering, author of Anything and Restless
We live in a society that can easily have us running in circles if we aren't careful. And this can result in having a life full of things we actually never intended to sign up for. Shauna helps us take a step back and reset our minds and souls. In these pages you will find wisdom and encouragement to see past temporal success and accolades to experience the deeper, more connected and truly enjoyable life. After all, it is the power of connection with others that helps us thrive in every sense of the word.--Dr. Henry Cloud, New York Times bestselling author of Boundaries and The Power of the Other
With graceful confession, Shauna has created a memoir of her heart--a racing, fragmented heart that is becoming a contented, loved, and present heart. Reading this book heartened me for her, for her family, for her church, and for her generation. Shauna summons each of us to resist being sucked into the fast-paced draft of saying Yes and offers us a better way: the way of presence, the way of saying No. But this No is a Yes to something far better.--Scot McKnight, author of A Fellowship of Differents and The Blue Parakeet --このテキストは、hardcover版に関連付けられています。

Pushing for perfection is what so many entrepreneurs, especially women do, but you can end up with stale relationships, kids trying to connect with you but being honest you aren’t fully present, even your weekends end up with little quality time and you gain rapid weight gain due to stress and not making time for exercise. You feel you are trapped on this hamster wheel eventually feeling unfulfilled at work and unfulfilled at home.
Shauna describes it perfectly ‘it’s like I was pulling a little red wagon, and as I pulled it along, I filled it so full that I could barely keep pulling. That red wagon was my life, and the weight of pulling it was destroying me. I was aware that I was missing the very things I so badly longed for: connection, meaning, peace. But there was something that kept driving me forward – a set of beliefs and instincts that kept me pushing, pushing, pushing event as I was longing to rest’….. My health was suffering……. My ability to taste and connect and feel deeply had been badly compromised…. This book is an account of my winding, messy journey from exhaustion to peace, from isolation to connection, from hustling and multitasking to sacred presence…
A key phrase from her book …’You don’t have to damage your body and your soul and the people you love most in order to get done what you think you have to get done. You don’t have to live like this’…..
‘Loving one’s work is a gift. And loving one’s work makes it really easy to neglect other parts of life’.
When you’ve tried all the tactics of time management, developing a team, to-do lists and scheduling and this doesn’t work, you’ve got to change tactics. This is where this book comes in.
The book focused on how Shauna left a life of busyness and frantic living, a constant pressure to perform faster, push harder and produce more, all while maintaining an exhausting image of perfection. Her life was transformed through stopping, resting, creating, connecting and cultivating silence and in that silence, she discovered the voice of love that she had been aching to hear, this led her to a new life based on grace, rest, silence, simplicity, prayer and connection with the people that mattered most to her and rediscovered who she was meant to be.
She adopted new ways of embracing silence – walking away from past beliefs and what someone told me you should be, in favour of walking toward what you truly love. It has certainly given me food for thought and from November, I personally am reducing my work down to four days per week taking Fridays off and treating these as ‘Fulfilment Fridays’ – using Fridays as a special time for me to get grounded, have fun, meditate, journal and as a day of self-care.
