This heartwarming collection of personal stories chronicles the authors personal struggles as a woman, a friend, a sister/daughter/mother, and just as a human being.
While I wouldn't call this a self-help book it is definitely inspiring. Time and time again I found myself re-examining similar experiences from my own life and finding places I could have been more kind or more generous and often with myself as well.
Every female should read this. The author let's us into her life and shares good and bad, fears and triumphs, and shows us how real life looks. Shauna's personal experiences, told with wit and humor, show us how to learn to really live the life that we were made for.
Shauna is a real woman that shares thoughts and struggles of many woman. It was like listening to one of my closest girlfriends tell me about her life. This book made me feel "not so alone" in this world!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this book! Shauna's reading of her own words made it such a personal experience too. I felt like I was spending a weekend with a new best friend who was laying her heart bare in the most loving and funny and self-deprecating way. She confesses so many things that I could directly relate to, I felt safe in her grace and in her own imperfections. I highly recommend this book for all women - young and old alike!
This book offers hope for the hopeless, a smile for your tears, and healing for all of us who get hurt in this broken world. Worth the read/listen.
I'm so grateful for the words in this book that are a reminder that the ordinary things are actually colorful and magnificent. It gave me perspective when I would wake up on a cloudy day and lose myself to the maelstrom of negativity. It was an absolute blessing!
Shauna Niequist shares part of the season on her life of realizing life is more than brand names and skinny jeans. She shares eloquently how she moved past wanting the right size into celebrating the small, wonderful things of life!
Usually an author-read book is great -- not this time. Where was the director? Some one should have suggested she SLOW DOWN when reading a book about gratitude and the reverence of every day life. She didn't give the listener a chance to contemplate, or even fully hear, what she was saying.
I may read a book by Shauna Niequest but I will not listen to another one.
Thai fabulous who try book had me belly laughing intermittently as I wiped tears of feeling known and vulnerable. Thank you for writing and reading this book! My heart and soul feel like it ate a exquisite meal.❤️
