For too many years I missed out on the life God had given me to live--to steward--because I was too busy trying to build a life that looked more...perfect. Shauna Niequist invites you to leave behind perfection-seeking and embrace presence as a way of life--free from illusions and soaked in grace.

In this five-session video Bible study (DVD/digital video sold separately), New York Times bestselling author Shauna Niequist will take you on the same journey that changed her own life--away from frantic striving and toward a soulful thriving.

Maintaining an image of perfection is exhausting, and it isn't the way we're meant to live. The Present Over Perfect Study Guide will help you and your group pull each other free from the constant pressure to perform faster, push harder, and produce more. Watch Shauna give a vulnerable account of what led her to begin this journey, and a compelling vision for an entirely new way to live: soaked in grace, rest, silence, simplicity, prayer, and connection with the people that matter most to us.

The study guide includes first thoughts, video notes, group discussion questions, practicing presence reflections, and solo work for you to complete between sessions.

Sessions include:

  1. Pain Points
  2. The Roles We Play
  3. Yes, And No
  4. Unflashy, Unspectacular, Good
  5. Living the Love
