All roads lead to home It s easy to go through life believing that we can satisfy our longing for home with a three bedroom, two bath slice of the American dream that we mortgage at 4 percent and pay for over the course of thirty years But ultimately, in our deepest places, we re really looking to belong and to be known And what we sometimes miss in our search for the perfect spot to set up camp is that wherever we are on the long and winding road of life, God is at work in the journey, teaching us, shaping us, and refining us sometimes through the most unlikely people and circumstances In Home Is Where My People Are, Sophie Hudson takes readers on a delightfully quirky journey through the South, introducing them to an unforgettable cast of characters, places, and experiences Along the way, she reflects on how God has used each of the stops along the road to impart timeless spiritual wisdom and truth Nobody embodies the South like Sophie Hudson, and this nostalgic celebration of home is sure to make even those north of the Mason Dixon line long to settle in on the front porch with a glass of sweet tea and reflect on all of the people in our lives who related or not have come to represent home Because at the end of the day, it s not the address on the front door or even the name on the mailbox that says home, but the people who live and laugh and love there, wherever there might happen to be....

Home Is Where My People Are: The Roads That Lead Us to Where We Belong Reviews
I am a fan of Sophie. I like that she is talking about nothing and yet driving a point all the way home. I always appreciate the fact that she isn't trying to impress me with her great knowledge or holy wisdom. She just tells what God is teaching her with all the humility she can muster. I like it. Send me the straight shooters.
OH. MY. WORD. I LOVED this book so much!!! As a child of the 70s I found myself on nearly every page (never mind the fact I grew up in Oklahoma and not Mississippi. Close enough). And I laughed so often. I was trying to read the book in bed while my husband slept beside me. I was trying not to laugh out loud but that meant that I was holding my hand over my mouth while trying to control the snorting that was coming from my nose and my shoulders were shaking so hard I was shaking the bed. I loved everything about this book, and I wish that Sophie would become my new best friend. I wish we could hang out on a super accessorized porch and drink sweet tea, discuss fried chicken, and laugh. Since that probably isn't going to happen, I'm so happy she was willing to share herself and her stories in this book and remind me that the most important things in my life are the people God has graced my life with.
Sophie Hudson’s new book Home is Where My People Are: The Roads that Lead Us to Where We Belong is funny, touching, and unexpectedly soul-stirring. Sophie takes the reader on a journey from a Mississippi childhood to adult life in Birmingham, Alabama. With a truly Southern flair, this memoir chronicles not just life’s eventful moments but highlights the people who walked the journey with her.
