A revealing and inspiring memoir by Lauren Akins, the wife of country singer Thomas Rhett, offering inspiring guidance for anyone looking to keep romance alive, balance children and marriage, express true faith and live a life of purpose.
Lauren Akins never wanted to be in the spotlight, but as multi-PLATINUM country music star Thomas Rhett made his relationship with Lauren the subject of many of his hit songs, she was tossed into the role of one of America's sweethearts. Revered by fans for her down-to-earth ease and charm, her commitment to humanitarian work, and the pure love she exudes for her family, Lauren has never shared her side of their story-full as it's been, with deep love, painful loss, tremendous joy, and a struggle to stay grounded in faith along the way-until now.
Lauren offers a rare behind-the-scenes look at the challenges of being married to her best friend, who just happens to be a music star, and the struggle to find her own footing in the frenzy of her husband's fame. And in heart-wrenching detail, she opens up about her life-changing experiences doing mission work in Haiti, and then in Uganda, where she met the precious baby who would become their first daughter a year later. From sharing the romance of their hand-written wedding vows, to letting readers in on obstacles they faced as they adjusted to the reality of becoming first-time parents, 'Live in Love' takes an intimate look at one couple's life-and opens a window into all of our journeys on the path to self-discovery.
