Popular blogger Kathryn Whitaker is a Dr Pepper super fan, Aggie-loving, type A mom of six with a personality the size of her native

In Live Big, Love Bigger, Whitaker shares her journey and challenges readers to understand that they, too, can live a life of authenticity with joy-filled purpose, love, and faith.

In addition, Ave Maria Press is offering the second of a series of three books by Christopher West that help readers begin anew from the first Sunday in Advent through the entire liturgical year. Word Made Flesh: A Companion to the Sunday Readings (Cycle A) offers reflections
