She then moved on to Feeding the Soul by Tabitha Brown. "I am listening to this book on Audible with my kids and I also have it here to underline things. We just need her wisdom and her humor and her sweetness. Opening up and not being afraid to have conversations. I just love you Tabitha," the mom-of-three said. 

Next up was No Cure for Being Human by Kate Bowler. "She’s unapologetic about being human. It’s not pretty being human but faith will lift you. Thank you for this Kate."

Then, she gave a sweet tribute to fellow actress Gabrielle Union, who recently released her candid memoir follow-up You Got Anything Stronger? 

"I don’t know if you’ve read Gabrielle Union’s first book We’re Going to Need More Wine, but this is an awesome follow-up," she said. "You’re a really good writer Gabrielle. You Got Anything Stronger?, Highly recommend. It’s funny, wise, touching, and empowering."

And lastly, she had a book recommendation for kids too. “My friend Tyler Peck has written such a fun book for middle graders, Katarina Ballerina and the Victory Dance. If you have a little ballerina this is awesome to read aloud or for them to read to themselves.
