I read this pithy little book after becoming familiar with Mother Angelica through reruns of her show on ETWN - the Catholic cable network. She has an interesting way of putting things and some good positive insight on God and life in general. Not being Catholic, I probably did not totally understand or relate to everything she wrote which is why I only gave the book three stars. The book was worth reading however. I marked up many of her quotes and will probably refer back to the book from time ...more
What a hilarious and to the point woman Mother Angelica is! This book was exactly what I needed to read and I would recommend it to any Christian, Catholic or not, as quality spiritual reading. The great thing about it, is that this book is divided into smaller excerpts and sometimes just one line quotes. You can read one a day or did like I did and consume the entire book all at once! She is just so direct and blunt and sometimes that is just what we need. Some of these excerpts can provide gre ...more

Her words had me thinking and laughing at the same time, and wondering, "what makes such a holy woman so funny?"

The more I thought about it, I decided that when people grow in holiness, they learn to let go of their attachments - to themselves, to others, to things. They can look at themselves then and see the humor because they have gained humility. They also are more free to see what is true because of this detachment. They are able to tell the truth as it is, because it is clear, and we laug

I'm Loving This! Mother Angelica is such a sweetie! And her Wisdom and wit is a breath Of fresh air to our world! God Bless her!
This is a book I normally would never have considered reading but it was a Christmas present and surprisingly enough I liked it. The book is filled with short sayings about practical everyday living and about a persons true place in the scheme of things. Obviously the book comes off with a catholic point of view but the whole read rings very very true.
I will be reading this over and over for the rest of my life.
This plain speaking Southern woman endured pain most of her life and pushed on in spite of it.
Her comments will pull you out of any kind of mental funk or any lie you might be telling yourself about why you aren't the right person for the job God is nagging at you to do!

This little book is broken into chapters, and nice little paragraphs of quotes and insights from Mother Angelica. Good to read in little snippets.
Great little book. My family and I watched Mother Angelica faithfully every Tuesday and Wednesday night. It's so nice to have much of her wisdom put together in this little book. God bless her in these golden years of hers. She is a true saint in my book.
Amazing! I will be returning to this little book again and again. Done in segments, it is designed so that it can be taken in in small, thoughtful bits. I love Mother Angelica so much, I read it in one go. I'll certainly be rereading, many times.
Okay so I know the Golden rule but she points out how and why it is important to use it towards a higher purpose. I have to say that Mother Angelica uses humor to show human in all of us.
I just love this woman. She's cute and very tough at the same time and this is an enjoyable book of quotes and, yes, even witticisms from this fun nun. A good read.

This book is really helpful even if you are not Catholic, it can help you spiritually get through those days you can't seem to make it through.
This nun is hilarious! I always pick this up and read a few pages when I'm having a bad day.

So many quotable passages. Lots of wisdom packed in this little volume.
Packed with valuable life lessons in an east-to-digest format. <3
I love Mother Angelica. Enough to name my daughter after her.......
