If the title hasn’t already put a smile on your face, wait until you read the words nestled within the pages…
I was blessed recently with an invitation to read – Does this Church make me Look Fat? – A book about a Mennonite who finds faith, meets Mr. Right, and solves her lady problems. It took all of two seconds to reply to that email with a yes, and all of one day to read the book in its entirety. It was a book I’m thrilled to have been given the opportunity to read, and one that I look forward to sending one of you. Oh, but before I forget, as a bonus (and purely by accident) I stumbled on one of my mom’s favorite shows, The 700 Club, last night which, by chance, was featuring the lovely Rhoda Janzen, and the release of her new book. I hope you’ll watch it.
By: Rhoda Janzen
Grand Central Publishing Hardcover/ 272 pages
ARP: $24.99 US
Released: October 2, 2012
This book is: for people who have a problem with organized religion but can’t quite dismiss the notion of God, and for those who secretly sing hymns in their cars but generally prefer a nice mimosa brunch to church. It is the story of what it means to find joy in love, strength in illness, and – incredibly, surprisingly – faith in a big-hearted-God.
