Shauna Niequist was burned out—by life, motherhood, and the demands of a bustling writing career. In Present Over Perfect’s openhearted essays, she examines the faulty construct of her former busy, striving life—the same life, she noticed, almost everyone around her was also pursuing.

Through stories and vignettes, Niequist invites us to press “reset,” breathe, stop the mindless flailing, and pay attention to our own value and the value of a life that fits together instead of splintering in the push for perfection. Readers will find rest, grace, and deeper links with those they love most in this beautiful and soul-warming book. (Zondervan)
