Bakeless Sweets: Faith Durand
There´s nothing quite like family - and some people would say that there´s nothing better. But in a world where we sometimes know more about the Kardashians than we do about 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. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sophie Hudson.

With eloquence and wit, Wayne Hoffman explores the unlikely camaraderie between a young Jewish man and an Orthodox rabbi, in this rich, insightful novel about love, honesty, faith, and belonging. In Yiddish, there is a word for it: bashert - the person you are fated to meet. Twenty-something Benji Steiner views the concept with skepticism. But the elderly rabbi who stumbles into Benji´s office one day has no such doubts. Jacob Zuckerman´s late wife, Sophie, was his bashert. And now that she´s gone, Rabbi Zuckerman grapples with overwhelming grief and loneliness. Touched by the rabbi´s plight, Benji becomes his helper - driving him home after work, sitting in his living room listening to stories. Their friendship baffles everyone, especially Benji´s sharp-tongued, modestly observant mother. But Benji is rediscovering something he didn´t know he´d lost. Yet the test of friendship, and of both men´s faith, lies in the difficult truths they come to share. With each revelation, Benji learns what it means not just to be Jewish, but to be fully human - imperfect, striving, and searching for the pieces of ourselves that come only through another´s acceptance. 1.
