I had the opportunity to attend a conference this past weekend where Shauna Niequist was speaking. She has a way of making you feel like it’s just you and her, sitting across from one another, sipping on a hot cup of tea and sharing good conversation. She spoke right into my heart. Shauna shared stories of her faith and how she has grown over the last couple of years, deciding to live in the present, and choosing to live a life of purpose and fulfillment.
At any given time, I’m in the middle of three (okay, really five) different books. Shauna’s newest release, Present Over Perfect, is one that I’ve opened on several occasions. I’d meditate on one or two chapters at a time, really allowing the words to soak in and to start applying some of the principles into my daily life. I assure you, it is covered from beginning to end with highlighter, underlines, stars, and page ears.
