Here’s the latest cookbook!
You Be Sweet: Sharing Your Heart One Down-Home Dessert at a Time, co-authored with Patsy Caldwell (Thomas Nelson, 2012)
“For me the true test of a good cookbook lies in fascinating commentary, beautiful photos, and the quality of the recipes. I’ve found all three in this book, and am going to enjoy using it.”–Peg G.
In 2007, my essay “The Guts to Keep Going” aired on National Public Radio’s “This I Believe,” and it’s included in the second compilation of essays selected for publication: This I Believe II: More Personal Philosophies from Remarkable Men and Women (Henry Holt, 2008). Working on this project was one of the highlights of my career and I feel blessed to have been a part of it. This is a picture of me reading my essay at the Southern Festival of Books in Nashville.
For Fresh Air Books, an imprint of Upper Room Books, I had the pleasure of compiling, editing, and writing the introductions for a series of four gift books: Anger: Minding Your Passion; Hope: It’s More Than Wishful Thinking; Compassion: Thoughts on Cultivating a Good Heart; and Forgiveness: Making Peace with Your Past. The books include pieces by well-known theologians and new voices alike.
