3 stars for being a clean and uplifting read. But, unfortunately, I couldn't even finish the book. There were a few laughs, but mainly I found it dull.
Gabrielle
I have no idea where this book came from nor did I know anything about the author before reading it. I found out that she is a devout Christian which I was not expecting. This is not a negative just an observation. Some of the stories in the collection were laugh out loud funny.
Wendyh
Cute little read. The author is a Christian writer, and each chapter is an article she wrote for a Christian magazine. The articles are funny, uplifting, and left me with a smile.
Mimi
Funny, inspiring and uplifting -- what more could you want??
Katie
I was hoping for a funny light-hearted book not something preachy.
Wanda
Loved it! Can't wait to read the rest of her books.

“Mom, I did something you’re probably not going to like, but before I tell you what it is, I want you to know that keeping your trust and having a good relationship with you is really important to me, and that if you want me to undo what I’ve done, I will. All I ask is that, before you decide, you give me a chance to explain why I’d like to keep it.” 0 likes
“Still, I’m glad that some things stay the same. Intimate and old-fashioned, even. Like talking to Jesus. What a relief! I don’t have to plug in, log on, or boot up. I don’t need passwords or access codes, and I never have to wait for someone to return my page. I didn’t even have to worry about Y2K, because there’s no computer chip linking me to him. Just a weathered, bloodstained cross. No modem, outlet, or batteries required.” 0 likes
