After finding herself exhausted, isolated, and sick, author Shauna Niequist came to a point where she knew her life had to change. She was tired, burnt out, and felt unconnected to the people she loved.
Her new book, Present Over Perfect: Leaving Behind Frantic for a Simpler, More Soulful Way of Living, chronicles her transition from a life of striving for perfection to rediscovering her created purpose and living from a place of meaning and connection. With her warm, vulnerable voice, she tells of how she underwent the most important transformation of her life, while also inviting us to do the same.
She writes, “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.”
We chatted with Shauna about the impact Present Over Perfect has had on her life, where she finds rest, and how we can learn to live more simple, soulful lives, too.
