“When I stopped praying for the little things, I stopped believing that God cared about the day to day weaknesses and failures of my life.” Shauna Niequist

“There’s a lot of value in staying and putting down long roots in something that seems terribly unsexy.” Shauna Niequist

“We don’t cheer people on often enough for doing quiet, hard things.” Shauna Niequist

“It’s not good fruit unless it’s good for everyone close to you; it’s not good fruit if it’s at the expense of your own soul.” Shauna Niequist
