I Guess I Haven ' T Learned That Yet : Discovering New Ways Of Living When The Old Ways Stop Working by Shauna Niequist

When everything we’ve been holding on to falls apart, how do we determine what to keep and what to let go of? I Guess I Haven’t Learned That Yet, a New York Times bestseller, offers a fresh perspective on navigating through life’s challenges and transforming ourselves along the way.

Author Shauna Niequist found herself in a season of chaos, change, and loss after turning forty. The beliefs and practices that once served her no longer did. In her search for restoration, she realized that she needed new strategies: courage, curiosity, and compassion. Instead of seeking answers, she learned to ask questions. Instead of using force, she embraced forgiveness. Rather than striving, she found solace in tenderness.

In I Guess I Haven’t Learned That Yet, Niequist shares her personal journey from the Midwest to Manhattan and the power of unlearning what no longer serves us. She explores the uncertainties that come with midlife, heartbreak, and chronic pain. With honesty and grace, she reveals her experiences in:

  • Discovering new ways of living when the old ways no longer work
  • Embracing the challenges and joys of releasing our expectations
  • Deepening our trust in God’s goodness
  • Navigating grief, reshaping faith, and finding courage in difficult times
