Present Over Perfect Giveaway!*

It's here! It's finally here!

Y'all, this book. I could hardly sit still during work yesterday because I knew what was waiting for me on my doorstep.

If you've been a longtime reader of the blog, you'll know that Shauna Niequist remains one of my favorite authors of all time. Her words inspired me to get the ball rolling in my own writing world. I started blogging after reading her book Bittersweet, and when I finished, I was delighted to know that her first book, Cold Tangerines was mine for the taking.

When Bread and Wine was released a few years ago, I drank it in like a bubbly champagne. Savor, too.

But Present Over Perfect will be a merlot.

When I first discovered Shauna's work, about five years ago or so, I was in the midst of a heavy emotional battle and an emotional relationship. When I picked up her books, she made me believe that my voice matters.

In writing, certainly, but also in life. If a woman from Michigan could inspire me to adopt French cooking, go back to church and gather girlfriends around my table in a delicious, rich community, what could my words spark?

Much of what you know from the Prodigal Sister blog today is a direct result of Christ's healing in my life. And Shauna's books. This is a big day.

Now I want to pass her words along to you! I'm giving away one free copy of Present Over Perfect to one of my email subscribers.

All you have to do is enter your email in the form below and that's it! You're entered! (And if you're already a #ProdigalSquad member, you're already in the running.)

I'll be announcing the winner on Instagram (brettwtubbs) on Wednesday, August 17th.
