"Rejection of the world only brings you closer to the glory of God's plan for your life. Page turner. This is a book for everyone who feels like they aren't good enough, not worthy, or afraid of failure.

She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future. Psalm 31:25

Realizing if they aren't God, they don't matter. This book spoke to my heart. I never realized by choosing this book that it would completely change my perspective, on life, and on what others think

Inspirational is the word I would use for this book. Im in a hard place in my life and this book could not have come into my life at a more perfect time. Ready to give up she laughs gave me a sense of purpose again and made me like I am strong and able to move on. The hilarious stories helped to!! I found my husband looking at me with a strange look on his face as I was reading the book one minute crying and the next laughing . I would recommend anyone looking to laugh, find a little peace and ...more
This book is a powerful reminder of Gods love and power to speak through us, and straight to us. The message that it conveys is life changing. A Godly woman is a woman who knows how to laugh. And she will. 5/5 stars for a gift from above. ...more

I have only a sneak peak of the book and I am anxiously waiting until January for its release! I laughed until I cried just in the first chapter. Carolanne is so relatable in her writing. Love it so far better than her first.

There Carolanne Miljavac goes, making me laugh, cry and reflect all over again. I recieved an advanced digital copy from the publisher and I have read 3 chapters so far in one hour. I am hooked! I am left wanting more and I can not wait to read more. The book and author are 100% relatable and so truly genuine. I do enjoy a good ol' belly laugh. This book doesn't disappoint!

Its not very often that I open a book and feel as if its speaking directly to me but She Laughs did just that. This book had me laughing,crying, thinking, smiling, and praying page by page. Between the hilarious stories and very moving scriptures, She Laughs will draw you in and make you not want to sit it down. ...more

This book is so inspirational. As someone who hides my depression because I fear that other might think less of me. You helped me realize that it doesnt matter what anyone else thinks of me. The only opinion that matters is Gods.
My favorite part of the book is I cant help my expressive face. Its a gift and a curse., because I get told on a daily basis to fix my face.
Thank you so much Carolanne Miljavic for an amazing book.

This book is incredible. I am not an overly religious person, but I love CA's message and what she stands for. Her over the top hilarity and genuine personality shine through in her writing to relate each chapter of this book to every mother, grandmother, sister, aunt or woman in general. I literally feel like she wrote this book for me. You won't be disappointed.

I am not one to read, but the author has changed that. I could not put the book down. Her stories and faith in God has helped me in so many ways. I look at things different thanks to her and the real life stores she tells. She find humor in everything even in the bad. Always laughing and making me laugh. Never thought I would be excited about reading. Truly amazing author.

This book is speaking volumes to so many stages of life. The innocent little girl I use to be, the teen I was ashamed of being, the young adult that hopelessly had no idea where my life was going and now an adult fighting for my own happiness.Transparency at its finest with a dash of humor! If you love her last book, you will love this one too! I promise, it won't disappoint!!

Just as powerful as Oddly Enough! I was drawn chapter after chapter before putting it down. Carolanne keeps her readers drawn in with faith, honesty, and humor that raises your spirit.

LOVE LOVE the way I can always relate if not in experience in emotional feeling. FOR SURE. She can take you to a whole new place where you can see some bad things from a different angle and perspective that can make you feel lighter hearted about it and can move forward easier

I love "She Laughs!" I've literally laughed out loud so many times. My husband, son, and students just look at me like I'm crazy when I randomly crack up laughing while reading. I love laughing and I love Carolanne's honestly and focus on Jesus. I'm so glad that my husband showed me Odd(ly) Enough while shopping at Sams last year. Carolanne is a fantastic author and I look forward to reading anything and everything that she writes. "A woman who can laugh has hope for joy in the future."

Most of us find our lives full of stress and times of sadness or disappointment. When I saw this book, the photo and title caught my attention right away. I need more laughter in my life. I need to loosen up. But it's more than that, I need to do what the second part of the title says, choose faith over fear. This book includes so many funny stories from the author and is so relatable. I think many will find it hard to put down, not only because of the funny parts, but also because of the ...more

This is of the same quality as Carolanne Miljavac''s first book, Oddly Enough. The stories of her life are so relatable. It reminds me of things I did as a kid that always brought peace and matter what cicumstances I was living through. Now, as an adult reading this book, I'm learning how to live that way again. Faith over fear of what others may think. Because what God thinks of me is becoming my only concern. I am a work in progress as is my reading this book. After receiving an ...more
