Have you ever…
…entangled yourself in a toilet paper holder in a public bathroom?
…had a horse use your car hood as a salt lick?

…got your car stuck in the middle of a wedding reception in the bride’s front lawn?
These are just a few of the hilarious snapshots in the life of Shannon Perry. By sharing real-life moments of amusement and awkwardness, Shannon manages to find spiritual lessons in the midst of everyday life.

What a pleasure to read this book. With real life events – that I could personally relate to – [Shannon] writes with gracious wisdom and a sense of humor…she reminds us that God is truly in control and that He promises to walk along side us.”

“This book is a funny, delight-filled and soul-refreshing read. It’s like having coffee and a good old-fashioned heart-sharing with your best friend.”
Anita Higman, best-selling author of Love Finds You in Humble Texas.
“Shannon writes as she talks, which makes you feel like you’ve known her all your life. This book will lift your spirits while reassuring you of the one true God who loves you and provides for you in all life’s circumstances.”
Gloria Ruppel, Women’s Ministry Director, St. Timothy Lutheran Church
“Perry is so funny! While her stories are full of humor, they also offer deep reflections on life, healing, and finding peace through trials. My favorite story is one of the few that includes no humor. It’s the story of how in a matter of hours, Shannon received news that her father had a heart attack, her husband had cancer, and Hurricane Ike was barreling towards them. She talks about how all she could pray were four words – “God, I trust you.” This story touched me deeply. Each story/chapter also ends with a few reflective questions and space to write in your own answers. This is a must read, and a book that I will be recommending to the special women in my life for sure!
