Giveaway: A Little Salty to Cut the Sweet by Sophie Hudson

This month we have a great giveaway! One of our favorite ParentLife writers, Sophie Hudson (aka Boomama) just released her first book, and we have 5 copies for you!

saltyThere’s nothing quite like family—for good or bad. But in a world where we sometimes know more about the people on TV than we do the people sleeping right down the hall, it’s easy to forget that walking through life with our family offers all sorts of joy wrapped up in the seemingly mundane. There’s even a little bit of sacred sitting smack-dab in the middle of the ordinary. And since time’s-a-wastin’, we need to be careful that we don’t take our people—and their stories—for granted. Whether it’s a marathon bacon-frying session, a road trip gone hysterically wrong, or a mother-in-law who makes every trip to the grocery store an adventure, author Sophie Hudson reminds us how important it is to slow down and treasure the day-to-day encounters with the people we love the most.

Written in the same witty style as Sophie’s BooMama blog, A Little Salty to Cut the Sweet is a cheerful, funny, and tender account of Sophie’s very Southern family. It’s a look into the real lives of real people—and a real, loving God right in the middle of it all.

To win a copy, fill out the form below. Giveaway starts now and ends June 30th at midnight. (Entries only open to those in the U.S.)
