DMA Arts & Letters Live: Lauren Akins
Lauren Akins will celebrate her first book, Live in Love, a deeply personal love story of her modern family with longtime partner and childhood best friend, multi-platinum-selling performer Thomas Rhett.
In this hour-long moderated talk with Hoda Kotb, Akins will offer inspiring guidance from her own experiences on staying in love, balancing children and marriage, practicing faith, and living a life of purpose. Guests will get a behind-the-scenes look at the challenges of being married to her music star best friend and the struggle to find her own footing in the frenzy of her husband’s fame.
Akins will open up about her life-changing experiences doing mission work in Uganda, where she met the precious baby who would become their first daughter a year later. From sharing the romance of their handwritten wedding vows, to the challenges they faced as they adjusted to the reality of becoming first-time parents, Akins will share her path to self-discovery.
