All roads lead to home. It’s easy to go through life believing that we can satisfy our longing for home with a three-bedroom, two-bath slice of the American dream that we mortgage at 4 percent and pay for over the course of thirty years. But ultimately, in our deepest places, we’re really looking to belong and to be known. And what we sometimes miss in our search for the perfect spot to set up camp is that wherever we are on the long and winding road of life, God is at work in the journey, teaching us, shaping us, and refining us – sometimes through the most unlikely people and circumstances.
In Home Is Where My People Are, Sophie Hudson takes readers on a delightfully quirky journey through the South, introducing them to an unforgettable cast of characters, places, and experiences. Along the way, she reflects on how God has used each of the stops along the road to impart timeless spiritual wisdom and truth. Nobody embodies the South like Sophie Hudson, and this nostalgic celebration of home is sure to make even those north of the Mason-Dixon line long to settle in on the front porch with a glass of sweet tea and reflect on all of the people in our lives who – related or not – have come to represent home. Because at the end of the day, it’s not the address on the front door or even the name on the mailbox that says home, but the people who live and laugh and love there, wherever there might happen to be.
Sophie Hudson has written a transparent, quirky, and original book highlighting her walk in faith. Sophie takes us on a journey from her childhood, through college, and into adulthood. While that seems like a bunch to cover Sophie was able to keep it light and fun, like she was talking to a girlfriend, throughout the book.
Ok but I do have one quirk with the book though. There were A LOT of parenthesis throughout the book. I know that seems stupid to nit pick that little detail, but sometimes it got distracting. I know that even I as a blogger I make mistakes with my grammar. But like I said the parenthesis just got distracting.
Overall though this book was ok. I found myself not really able to connect with this book. But I am sure there will be plenty of people out there who would love this book. I think it might be good for a younger crowd who struggling with where they are going in life. Realizing that even though you may not be where you thought you would be God has you exactly where He wants you and will use, not only you, but the people around you to bring you back to Him.
