Popular blogger Kathryn Whitaker is a Dr Pepper super fan, Aggie-loving, type A mom of six with a personality the size of her native Texas. The stressful premature birth of her fifth child threw her orderly world into chaos and ultimately led her to rethink her priorities. In Live Big, Love Bigger, Whitaker shares her journey and challenges readers to understand that they, too, can live a life of authenticity with joy-filled purpose, love, and faith. Along the way, sheâll help readers see that choosing to say no is the only way theyâll be able to say yes to what matters mostâJesus.
Itâs not every family who would plan a week-long Texas barbecue pilgrimage for a family of eight, much less expand the idea to a multi-month quest to experience the state, eat amazing food, and visit some awesome religious sites along the way. But Whitaker did itâwhen she decided imperfect family road trips trumped a vacation at a luxury resort. âBarbecue encouraged us to hit the road, while Jesus met us at every single stop along the wayâproof that he loves brisket as much as we do, right?â
Ditching the fancy vacation was one way Whitaker learned to give up control and say no to perfectionism and over-achievement in order to live a new, more intentional life and discover what God truly has in store for her family.
Whitakerâs sassy authenticity will make readers laughâand cryâwhile encouraging them to be honest about mistakes in every area of their life, embrace them, and find a way to let God redeem it all.
