Book of the Week: Something in the Water

I’ve been in my car a lot lately driving my baby on college tours and visiting my big boy in college. I love my little car by the way.  It has an awesomely long sunroof, it is small and easy to park, I can talk to text with it so easily,  but my most favorite […]

Book of the Week: Where the Crawdads Sing

I was looking for a new book to read and keep hearing my friends say that they always go to Reese Witherspoon’s picks to help them choose. This is what Reese says about her last book of the month: “I can’t even express how much I love this book! My September pick is “Where the […]

Book of the Week: Crazy Rich Asians

One of my neighbors chose Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan for our Meadowlake book club.  I’m not sure I would have ever picked it up otherwise.   Truth be told…I started it last week and am now halfway through book TWO of the trilogy (China Rich Girlfriend).   I’m addicted to these characters.  They are absolutely […]

Book of the Week: House Rules by Jodi Picoult

There are 132 miles between me and some of the people I love the most…..so I can be found cruising on Interstate 85 between Dunwoody and Lee County, Alabama quite frequently.  To pass the time (and to keep myself awake) I often listen to books on Audible or to Andy Stanley podcasts.  One day last […]

Book of the Week: The Power of Praying for Your Adult Children

My friend, Pamela, told me about this book and I’ve been reading and re-reading it all summer.   I used to think that once my kids were grown…and flown…that parenting would be finished.   I was oh.so.wrong! Throughout this book the author (Stormie O’Martian) helps you pray with the power of God’s Word over your adult children […]

Book of the Week: Grown & Flown

Note from Audra:  So I cheated.  This isn’t really a “BOOK” of the week.  However, it  is a publication that I “READ” almost every day and the topic is so timely that I knew I must share.  I’m taking my oldest back for his second year at Auburn tomorrow…our UGA friends are mostly all back […]
