Present Over Perfect Book

By: Shauna Niequist

Reviewed by: Arminta Phelps

Present Over Perfect provides bite-sized mini-chapters to fit self-reflection into a busy schedule. It encourages the reader to evaluate how they are being present, intentional, and to lead with grace above all else.

Written in Shauna’s warm and vulnerable style, this collection of essays focuses on the most important transformation in her life, and maybe yours too: leaving behind busyness and frantic living and rediscovering the person you were made to be. Present Over Perfect is a hand reaching out, pulling you free from the constant pressure to perform faster, push harder, and produce more, all while maintaining an exhausting image of perfection.
