– Why being less busy wasn’t the solution, and how she began the process of being more grounded in who God is.
– The challenge and reward of writing a devotional compared to the essay collections Shauna has written before.
– What Shauna wants you to hear if she could gather you around her table.
– “You’re not alone. You’re not crazy. God is good, and the world He made is good.”
– Possible first steps to a more savoring life.
– “You’re going to disappoint somebody; it’s just a matter in deciding who you’re going to disappoint.”
– “We live in a culture that’s obsessed with being someone else, somewhere else.”
— Jacey Verdicchio
