Ep 112: Who was there? (A Conversation with Shauna Niequist)

10 Things To Tell You

Whenever I hear someone speak of a mentor or extra wise friend, I always think about my relationship with Shauna Niequist. We met working together at a summer camp when we were both young, and she then has offered me truth and guidance for more than two decades. Shauna Niequist is a NYT best-selling author of five books: Cold Tangerines, Bittersweet, Bread & Wine, Savor, and Present Over Perfect. She lives in New York City with her husband Aaron and their two sons. I wrote about Shauna in Share Your Stuff. I'll Go First. in Chapter 2: Who was there? Shauna was there in one of the most important conversations of my life, when I called her heartbroken in Oklahoma and she answered the phone at exactly the right moment in Chicago.  In this episode, we talk about belonging, and magical moments, and books (because we both just love to talk about books). As usual, she left me with several things to ponder after we were done speaking, specifically about what we're actually saying when we share our pain.  Follow Shauna on IG Follow Shauna on FB FULL SHOW NOTES HERE Sponsors: Prose.

Present Over Perfect Shauna Niequist

ChristianBrief.com - Visit this site for many briefs on Christian books to help you grow!

Ms. Niequist shares her hurt, pain, and disappointment with the busyness of her life, and the distractions, the self judging, the attempts to be perfect and the resulting pain it generated vs. focusing in on the things that really matter.Learning to live life simply, appreciating God's creations, His love, nature.Being there for the ones in your inner circle. Being present for them vs. having everything perfect say the clothes all sorted, folded and clean - but rather spending time with family, and doing The Thing you were made to do by the Father.

153. How Your Jealousies Can Reveal The Life You Really Want w/ Shauna Niequist

Better Together with Maria Menounos

What's it going to take for you to FINALLY live the life you want to live?  For me it was a brain tumor. For Shauna Niequist, it was the painful realization that her stress, exhaustion, and overwhelm had turned into nothing: complete numbness. But wasn't Shauna was living her dream..? Multiple #NYT bestselling author, frequently booked international lecturer, and celebrated thought leader?    Despite the success, she realized that her inability to be present with the people she truly loved the most - her husband and her children - was the final straw. As she says in her bestseller #PresentOverPerfect: "It's very hard to be loved and connected to the people in your home when you're always bringing them your most exhausted self and resenting the fact that the scraps you're giving them aren't cutting it.”   Shauna's decision to choose presence over perfection wasn't an easy one; as she mentions in the interview, saying yes to some people means saying no to others. But if we're guaranteed to disappoint people, shouldn't we make those people the least important people, rather than our closest loved ones? In today's beautiful convo,  Shauna and I discuss how to make those decisions as we inevitably disappoint certain people in our lives so we can honor those we love the most.
