The Table: A monthly newsletter with stuff for the soul.
October 2021 Edition
It has been a busy month for book news, and I’m so excited to share what’s been happening! Round two of the launch team applications just opened up, so if you’re not already part of the team, now’s your chance.
What do launch team members do? Simply share about the book, order it when it releases (launch team members get 20% off their preorder!), and post a review when done. Easy! Plus, there are fun giveaways along the way — the next one is November 20th, so you’re not too late.
Want in? Click the button below to give me your details. Launch team members are crucial for having a successful book release, so I really couldn’t do any of this without you!
The book trailer for Until the Bones Shine released this month as well and has generated a lot of excitement about the book. If you can’t had a chance to view it, go on over to my Instagram page and check it out!
Finally, it was a joy to sit down with Betsy King-McDonald from Midwinter Press to be interviewed about the book. We talked about being brave with our stories, the writing process, and I even shared a brief excerpt from Until the Bones Shine!
Don’t worry if you missed the live; you can still view the whole video (it’s about 30 minutes) on Midwinter Press’ Instagram feed — just click here!
In Case You Missed It…
I kicked off my month of cooking through North Africa by exploring Algeria
I wrote a post about the differences between worshipping Christ and worshipping an empire
I had a delicious time cooking Libyan recipes
I felt it important to remind you that your joy matters
I learned an important lesson about truth while cooking Moroccan cuisine
I wrote about the ties that bind me to my North African great-great grandmothers as I explored Tunisia
On My Plate…
I have truly been enjoying my experiments in the kitchen as I have cooked my way through Scotland and now North Africa. It has given me more appreciation for the gift of food and for the connection it provides. It’s reminded me of a really great quote I recently came across from chef and restaurateur, Guy Fieri:
So, this month, instead of a recipe, I’ve created a fun personality quiz called What Type of Foodie Are You? that is free for all members of The Table! It is my hope that it sparks up a love of cuisine and connection in you just as this project has in me!
I have followed Hillary for a while on social media, and I have learned so much from her about the human body and its responses to stress, trauma, joy and more. I’m loving her new book, The Wisdom of Your Body, especially because she includes prompts and activities to help make what you’re reading come alive. I highly recommend this for anyone who wants to learn more about embodiment. What about you? What are you reading these days?
