Summary:

In these pages, New York Times bestselling author Shauna Niequist invites you 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.

As she puts it: “A 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.

This is a challenging book for those high achievers who can never seem to sit still. How do we stop acting like Martha and spend a little time being Mary?

Use Cases: Read this book as personal development or within a group study.

Questions to Consider: How can I apply some of these challenges that Shauna brings to the reader?
