Present Over Perfect: Leaving Behind Frantic for a Simpler, More Soulful Way of Living

LIVE A LIFE OF MEANING AND CONNECTIONInstead of pushing for perfectionA few years ago, I found myself exhausted and isolated, my soul and body sick. I was tired of being tired, burned out on busy. And, it seemed almost everyone I talked with was in the same boat: longing for connection, meaning, depth, but settling for busy.I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, neighbor, writer, and I know all too well that settling feeling. But over the course of the last few years, Ive learned a way to live, marked by grace, love, rest, and play. And its changing everything.Present Over Perfect is an invitation to this journey that changed my life. Ill walk this path with you, a path away from frantic pushing and proving, and toward your essential self, the one you were created to be before you began proving and earning for your worth.Written in Shaunas warm and vulnerable style, this collection of essays focuses on the most important transformation in her life, and maybe yours too: leaving behind busyness and frantic living and rediscovering the person you were made to be. Present Over Perfect is a hand reaching out, pulling you free from the constant pressure to perform faster, push harder, and produce more, all while maintaining an exhausting image of perfection.Shauna offers an honest account of what led her to begin this journey, and a compelling vision for an entirely new way to live: soaked in grace, rest, silence, simplicity, prayer, and connection with the people that matter most to us.In these pages, youll be invited to consider the landscape of your own life, and what it might look like to leave behind the pressure to be perfect and begin the life-changing practice of simply being present, in the middle of the mess and the ordinariness of life....

  • Samantha Baruzzini

    Sometimes you read a book and it feels good to finish something. Then there are books that move me. Bring tears to my eyes. Convict me of needing to find and rediscover pieces of myself and my soul and connection to God. To make the time for quiet and stillness and prayer. For creating and recreating furniture and art and song. That is this book. I haven't picked up and finished one so quickly amidst my busy-with-life frantic mindset in a long time. It will be one that stays on the shelf, to be ...more

  • Annie Rim

    I was drawn to Shauna Niequist's newest book, Present Over Perfect because its title seemed to indicate our current season. I quickly realized that Niequist's life and my life are vastly different. While I'm learning to live with a messy playroom, Niequist is finding balance by saying no to Big Opportunities and Flashy Job Offers. She's learning to settle in at home with a cup of tea and her family. Perhaps it's harder for someone with a lot of opportunities to say no and to find that balance. I ...more

  • Stacy

    I'm going to agree with many of the reviews that this was more of a memoir then any kind of self-help book. It was like reading her diary. It seemed repetitive and very biblical off for me at various points. It was an easy read but I was disappointed. I was expecting more encouragement on my own path to a life of simplicity. I don't recommend this book unless you enjoy reading someone's diary of thoughts and struggles. I do recommend The Best Yes by Lysa Terkurest, Simply Tuesday by Emily P. Fre ...more

    A 4.5 for me. A really strong (good) message about not hustling. Almost feels like she can see into my brain.

  • Catherine

    There is a certain peace and freedom found in these pages. Today I decided I would read this book. And I did. All day. It's the only thing I did, really. And I'm glad. I'm in this same season of stripping away, deciding what I can and can't do and learning how to say no. Learning how to say yes. And learning how to jump. And sometimes, well, all the time, God gives us exactly what we need when we need it most.

    Today it was this book.

  • Amanda

    The season of life I am currently in is crazy chaos, so the theme of this book sparked my interest. Everyday I am looking for more ways to simplify, stay present, and not worry so much about having everything perfect, so I wanted to love this book. I really did. And although I love the theme of everything Shauna wrote about, I did not feel very connected to her words. Maybe it is becuase our worlds and personalities seem very different. She writes of beach houses, trips to places such as Hawaii, ...more

    I did not learn anything from this book. The best thing about it was the title. The rest was her complaining about how busy she is and how she isn't going to write books anymore—while she is writing a book. I wish it had more practical advice, or even just wisdom about what matters in life versus what doesn't. Instead it felt like a lot of self-loathing followed by peace followed by more self- loathing.

  • Maureen

    This was so great as well as so convicting. I loved all of it, and the audiobook is fantastic!
