I had so much fun this week recording the audiobook of Small Talk!
Small Talk came out nine years ago, in 2014, and for whatever reason, it never became an audiobook. Last year, after I recorded To Be Made Well, I realized I might have the opportunity to narrate Small Talk myself. We made a deal with CHRISTIANAUDIO, and I spent two days in the studio this week. You can expect it to be released into the world on or about May 30th.
I often describe Small Talk as a parenting memoir, though it is definitely not a memoir with lots of parenting advice. It is more a story of lots of grace and empathy for anyone struggling as a parent of little children!
Now that our kids are teens/tween, it was so fun and sweet to remember back to those early years. I write in the introduction that they are the vehicles of grace, and end the book with a reflection on the sweetness of grace. I can still say that our children are a gift of grace to me.
