From a homeschooling mom and SiriusXM radio host who has endured eleven cross-country moves in fifteen years comes a highly relatable and insightful reexamination of the concept of home and what it means to nurture your roots--wherever they're currently planted.
When Hallie Lord imagined her future, she dreamed of a beautiful home on a small plot of land where she and her family would put down roots--ones that would grow deep over many decades. Instead, her reality became eleven moves in fifteen years--with eight babies along the way
As a SiriusXM radio host and highly-sought after speaker, Hallie often travels the country, sharing the story of her own evolving notion of what makes a home and her struggle to make peace with a life that looks nothing like the one she had imagined. Along the way, she has been surprised to find that what she thought was a unique experience is actually shared by women everywhere. Over and over, Hallie's fans have shared that they, too, have longed for a permanent place to call home, but found that seemingly simple dream much more elusive to attain than they ever imagined. Many speak of feeling like outsiders in their own community--even after living in the same neighborhood for decades.
In her irresistible and funny voice, Hallie reveals the secrets to finding joy and a sense of belonging in spite of her family's nomadic existence. Through graceful and charming essays, Hallie shares the lessons that God taught her about finding home--even when deep roots are impossible to cultivate.
