In her latest book STAND ALL THE WAY UP: Stories of Staying In It When You Want to Burn It All Down author Sophie Hudson (no relation) brings it all to the table - the good, the bad and the ugly. In doing so, Hudson uses her signature wit, sass and wisdom to bring a beautiful blessing for readers. Hudsonâs writing style is so remarkable. She has the ability to make readers feel as though they are one of her best friends and they have met at their favorite Coffee Shop just to catch up. Her writing also reminds me of reading a letter from a dear and treasured friend. In both situations, I feel blessed for the investment of her time. She is facing fifty and with that comes time for some introspective and deep spiritual study to process where she has been, where she is and what the future looks like - all while dealing with the unique challenges in todayâs society. The book is 13 Chapters long plus an Introduction and an Epilogue. I am particularly challenged by Hudsonâs take on this: âIn Luke 8:22, Jesus got in a boat with His disciples and uttered a simple command: âLet us go across to the other side of the lakeâ (esv). I realize that if any of us are trapped on a boat in the middle of a storm, we may have to use other gifts in that crisis because we wonât be able to command the waves to stop. But as we lead in our normal, everyday livesâas we steward whatever influence the Lord has given us in the places we live and work and loveâwhat are we doing to calm the storms? To take care of people? To bring order to chaos and peace to confusion? To challenge people in loving ways (Jesus even asked the disciples âWhy are you afraid, you of little faith?â) and ultimately provide âgreat calmâ? Because the One who does this? This is the Jesus of the Gospels. Here is what we must ask ourselves: Am I willing to be an agent of calm in the chaos, or would I rather stir the waters? In short, am I willing to lead like Jesus? Am I willing to follow someone who leads like Jesus?â Excellent points to ponder and a challenge for all! I was provided a complimentary copy of this book by B

About This Item
Whenever you face the hard stuff—the pieces and parts of life that keep you up at night, relentlessly reminding you that the “simple and easy” path is somehow a turn you’ve missed along the way —is your first instinct to try to make it all simply go away? You might wonder if it’s possible to just ignore it, or, better yet, to burn it all down.
During a particularly difficult stretch in her own life, Sophie learned that the Lord, through His Word and His people, has already provided all that we need to get up, straighten up, and stand all the way up.
This book is a collection of stories full of humor, sass, and spiritual insight, revealing our God who teaches you to stand up for yourself, stand up for the people you love, stand up for the people who can’t, and stand up for the Kingdom.
