Feeding the Soul by Tabitha Brown
I first discovered Tabitha Brown on Instagram during the first year of the pandemic. And honestly, listening to her was such a beacon of light during those early days of COVID. She was so upbeat and positive and always had a smile on her face and I loved it. When I stumbled across her IG page I think she was sharing her exploration of vegan cooking. So a lot of her content was about food interspersed with nuggets of inspirational advice.
Fast forward to present day when I was perusing the “available now” nonfiction audiobook section of Libby. And I found out she has a motivational book. I absolutely love that she narrates it herself because everything comes across exactly as she intended it. Plus it’s like listening to a close friend or relative share some advice. She is religious, so that element is present throughout, but it’s respectfully included as she’s aware not everyone is. As someone who’s not religious, it’s easy for me to look past it and focus on the crux of her advice.

Before Tabitha Brown was one of the most popular personalities in the world, sharing her delicious vegan home cooking and compassionate wisdom with millions of followers across social media, she was an aspiring actress who in 2016 began struggling with undiagnosed chronic autoimmune pain. Her condition made her believe she wouldn’t live to see forty–until she started listening to what her soul and her body truly needed. Now, in this life-changing book, Tabitha shares the wisdom she gained from her own journey, showing readers how to make a life for themselves that is rooted in nonjudgmental kindness and love, both for themselves and for others.
Tabitha grounds her lessons in stories about her own life, career, faith, and family in this funny, down-to-earth book, built around the catchphrases that her fans know and love, including:
Hello There!: Why hope, joy, and clarity are so very needed
That’s Your Business: Defining yourself, and being okay with that
Have the Most Amazing Day . . .: Choosing joy and living with intention
But Don’t Go Messin’ Up No One Else’s: Learning to walk in kindness even when the world doesn’t feel kind
Like So, Like That: Living life without measurement
Very Good: Living in peace and creating good from the bad
Rich with personal stories and inspirational quotes, and sprinkled with a few easy vegan recipes, Feeding the Soul is a book to share–and to return to when you want to feel seen, loved, and heard.
