I read this book at night and could literally not put it down.
I read this book at night and could literally not put it down. My intention was to read one chapter a night - but after 6 days, I finished it with a combination of gratitude and a lump in my throat that it had ended. It is so rare to find a book that is so lyrically written and has such amazing true, inspiring and hopeful stories that resonate. This isn't like Chicken Soup for the Soul - this is real gritty - get to the heart - told with humor that will make you grin ear to ear - revelations about living life and doing it well. Many of the stories are peppered with anecdotes from the author's parents - and will make you wonder what kernels of wisdom you have planted in your own childrens' hearts. This will give you many stories to share and uplift someone and also will bury itself in your own heart for times you need some hope. I had also read the author's previous book - What Southern Women Know About Faith - and was crazy about that one too. I am planning to give to everyone on my gift list and treasure my own copy that I now have passed on to my husband. It will fill you with a profound sense of joy at what the heart can do when it believes!
