Shauna Niequist was no stranger to stress. After speeding through life, whizzing between conferences, speaking engagements, and deadlines, squeezing family obligations into whatever time remained, Niequist was left emotionally drained. She began throwing up under pressure and developed vertigo. Still, she kept pushing and pushing forward.
This book is her powerful response to her own obsession with achievement. It’s about saying no sometimes, slowing down, choosing relationships over accomplishments, letting go of dependence on productivity, and experiencing the richness life has to offer. It’s about accepting that God’s love is not contingent upon success and is not diminished by failure.
It’s about finally exchanging perfection for reality and learning to be happy with the trade.
