Wednesdays with Words (The Nesting Place)

I ordered The Nesting Place: It Doesn't Have to Be Perfect to Be Beautiful by Myquillyn Smith has from the library thinking I was just going to browse through it, but have found it has been a very compelling and relatable read.


You don't have to get perfect to have a pretty house. Most of us simply need to learn to see the beauty in the imperfect. Because life is gloriously messy. We can find rest in our less than perfect circumstances when we figure out that no amount of striving can create the perfect life we think we are looking for. True rest comes when we realize that we can't get it from trying extra hard. We find rest when we give up.


  1. That goes right along with learning in humility! Love it :)

  2. I think I bought this for the Kindle way back when it was on sale. I look forward to reading it!
