No Niños En La Canasta: 99 Weird Devotions for Uncommon Christians

Free sample

Some of us have short attention spans. If you're one of them, this book is for you. It's divided up into 99 short readings (each of them about 500 words long). If you're tired of the same old stuff, give it a try. I've been publishing a blog for over three years now. I post three of them a week, so I have a considerable amount of stuff floating around in the blogosphere somewhere. Someone recently remarked to me, "You kids and your blogs!" Since I'm getting close to 70 years old, I took that as a compliment (or at least an encouragement). This book is a small collection of a few of those blogs attached to some appropriate Scripture references. Some people would refer to this as a devotional guide. That description might be a bit lofty for a work like this. Still, if you're a weird Christian like me, you may find it helpful.

The Last Wedding is a gleeful attempt to define what real marriage is all about. It’s a slightly humorous and sometimes-irreverent foray into what God intends marriage to be. Few actually think about that before they dive into their own marriages. The author gives us some meat to chew on before taking the plunge. But it’s never too late. Those having already gotten wet with the dew of matrimonial bliss will benefit from this romp through marital history. The Last Wedding explores whether the institution of marriage is still important or not. The author, who performs weddings (when he has to), lays out the case for the real reason behind marriage. Frankly, it’s probably not what you think. For many today, marriage is merely a contractual agreement. It’s a convenience. It avoids the anachronistic taboo of living together for anyone who even cares about that old stigma anymore. Marriage has become what one does or should do (maybe). For some it’s merely a big hassle to be avoided all together. Many marriages today are about the ceremony. How big of a splash can we make? Can we find the best venue? Should we do it up big or invite a more intimate crowd? Who should be included? Who should be left off the list? Should my Dad give me away (again)? Should we write our own vows? How much should I spend on my gown? Should we do it indoors or out? Aren’t we supposed to do this in a church? Church indeed! What does the church even have to do with this institution these days? Marriage is a civil thing. The state issues the license, and even preachers have to sign and send it back to the courthouse. Is there even a connection anymore? The author of the The Last Wedding is a preacher and has performed weddings for thirty-five years. He can’t remember the last time he officiated a wedding ceremony in his own church building? In fact, it’s been a long time since he oversaw one inside any building at all. Does that matter to him? Does it matter to anyone? Does it matter to God?

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 busyness and frantic living and rediscovering the person you were made to be. Present Over Perfect is a hand reaching out, pulling you free from the constant pressure to perform faster, push harder, and produce more, all while maintaining an exhausting image of perfection.

Shauna offers an honest 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.
