OVER 500,000 COPIES SOLD!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."I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, neighbor, writer, and I know all too well that settling feeling. But over the course of the last few years, I've learned a way to live, marked by grace, love, rest, and play. And it's changing everything."Present Over Perfect is an invitation to this journey that changed my life. I’ll walk this path with you, a path away from frantic pushing and proving, and toward your essential self, the one you were created to be before you began proving and earning for your worth."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...

Leap into Love: Living Present to my Purpose on the Planet
Leap into Love: Living Present to my Purpose
Leap Into Love is a guidebook to helping followers of Jesus learn how radical love and acceptance of their physical frame could change their whole lives. Exploring the conflict between a projected worldview of beauty and unchangeable features God gave you. We will take a fresh look at how evidence of self-rejection shows up in our everyday lives, the power of making a conscious and intentional choice to embrace ourselves and how this choice makes us radical agents of chance in the world around us. Havilah will guide you by exploring scripture (and maybe having a good laugh or cry) in a fresh liberating journey. In a world obsessed with physical beauty and idyllic models, could we actually be a role model in a radical movement of loving the person God created you to be? What is Evidence of Self Rejection? Growing in Self AcceptanceAccepting Our Bodies If what you see in the mirror is an example of God’s passion and creativity, but you HATE it, how can you really trust Him for your life? You are an example of His most significant work.Topics covered in the book: What is evidence of self-rejection Growing in self-acceptance Accepting our bodies Distributing radical love

Past Present: Living with Heirlooms and Antiques
Past Present: Living with Heirlooms and
“Antiques add the touch of time and the human hand. Every dented baby cup, mended tablecloth, perfectly or imperfectly preserved piece of silver or porcelain tells a story that began long ago and hasn’t ended yet. There are no rules about living with them, except to take what’s old and keep it young by making it part of daily life.” The past meets the present in perfect style in this guide to incorporating heirlooms and antiques into stylish and contemporary contexts. Featuring interiors decorated by collectors, antiques dealers, and well-known design professionals, author Susan Sully demonstrates ways to create tradition-inspired interiors that aren’t fussy or stiff and breathe new life into old things by changing finishes and upholstery or combining objects in surprising juxtapositions. Sully also explains how to display collections creatively, to set inviting tables, arrange interesting tabletop compositions, and successfully mix and match objects from varied styles, periods, and degrees of formality. Ranging from a converted 1915 fire station to a French neoclassical-style mansion, the selected homes reveal the beauty and relevance of antiques in every setting, from casual to elegant, rustic to refined.

Living Presence (Revised): The Sufi Path to Mindfulness
A revised 25th anniversary edition of the classic work on Sufism that Jack Kornfield called, "A heartfelt modern illumination of the Sufi path, filled with the fragrance of the ancients."In Sufism, the mystical branch of Islam, presence is the quality that describes a heart-filled state of mindfulness, an experience of being conscious in the present moment. It is only in this present moment, Sufi teachings reveal, that we can connect with the Divine, and the Divine can live through us.Kabir Helminski is one of the world's most recognized teachers of Sufism. Named one of the "500 Most Influential Muslims" in the world by Georgetown University and the Royal Strategic Studies Center, Helminski and his teachings are touchstones for the growth in interest in Sufism, and his books have been translated around the world. In Living Presence, Helminski lays out the basic principles of Sufism, and how these ideas can lead to the experience of presence. In this inspiring work, readers will learn how to cultivate presence in their lives through:* Finding a balance between the outer stimuli of the world and our inner reactions to them* Harnessing faithfulness and gracefulness* Learning about the parallels between ancient spiritual wisdom and modern psychological knowledge* Meditation and con...

Living Thought: The Origins and Actuality of Italian Philosophy (Cultural Memory in the Present)
Living Thought: The Origins and Actuality of Italian
The work of contemporary Italian thinkers, what Roberto Esposito refers to as Italian Theory, is attracting increasing attention around the world. This book explores the reasons for its growing popularity, its distinguishing traits, and why people are turning to these authors for answers to real-world issues and problems. The approach he takes, in line with the keen historical consciousness of Italian thinkers themselves, is a historical one. He offers insights into the great "unphilosophical" philosophers of life―poets, painters, politicians and revolutionaries, film-makers and literary critics―who have made Italian thought, from its beginnings, an "impure" thought. People like Machiavelli, Croce, Gentile, and Gramsci were all compelled to fulfill important political roles in the societies of their times. No wonder they felt that the abstract vocabulary and concepts of pure philosophy were inadequate to express themselves. Similarly, artists such as Dante, Leonardo Da Vinci, Leopardi, or Pasolini all had to turn to other disciplines outside philosophy in order to discuss and grapple with the messy, constantly changing realities of their lives. For this very reason, says Esposito, because Italian thinkers have always been deeply engaged with the concrete reality of life (rath...
