“The middle is the place
where we might have outgrown
the shape of our teenage jeans
but have finally grown into
the shape of our souls.”

The Middle Matters

The Middle Matters

In these intimate reflections on midlife, Lisa-Jo Baker invites us to get a good look at our middles and gives us permission to embrace them—beyond what the media, the mirror, or the magazines say.

Through gutsy, beautiful storytelling, she admits out loud what most of us are thinking about marriage, parenting, the bathroom scale, and how badly we all want to buy those matching Magnolia Market mugs.

She’s not asking you to seize the day, just to make sure you actually see it for all its wildly ordinary glory.
