Bread & Wine

... A love letter to life around the table ...

As simple as it sounds, that's exactly what this book is.

I've heard it said that God brings books into your life at exactly the moment you need them. Boy, has this been true in my life lately. Being in the middle of a tough time, God knew exactly what I needed and gave it to me in this book; honesty, real-ness and the permission to just. slow. down.

I want you to stop running from thing to thing to thing, and to sit down at the table, to offer the people you love something humble and nourishing, like soup and bread, like a story, like a hand holding another hand while you pray. We live in a world that values us for how fast we go, for how much we accomplish, for how much life we can pack into one day. But I am coming to believe it's in the in-between spaces that our lives change, and that the real beauty lies there. pg. 257

As you sit down to read this book you immediately get drawn in. Shauna makes you feel as if you are sitting across from her at the dining room table engaging over a steaming cup of tea. I highly recommend this book to anyone - it meets you right where you're at, fills your heart with a passion for good food and is quickly devoured, page after page.

So what are you waiting for? 
Grab this book, run a bubble bath, brew a cup of tea and get inspired!
