Product Description

In her humorous, conversational style, Mary Pierce laughs at her mistakes and her prayers that seem more like advertising jingles (Lord, I need a break today, and Can you hear me now, Lord?). Pierce deals with our fumbling attempts to grow closer to God, encouraging us as she invites us to laugh, cry, love, embrace life, and pray! In Confessions of a Prayer Wimp, you'll come to understand that faith is less about what you are or do or say, and more about who God is someone who loves you no matter what you do.

Publisher's Description

Is your spiritual life more like a fast-food run than an intimate dinner for two? Whether it’s the busy mother’s wish to be Wonder Woman—minus the metal bra—or battles with an exploding hot water heater, or fighting the “Resolutionary War” of New Year’s Day, Mary Pierce understands the dilemmas of being a woman in today’s 24/7 world. From disorganized misery to extreme organizational mania (she used to refer to her children by their household chores: Cat Box Boy, Dishwasher Girl, and Garbage Can Baby), Pierce deals with our fumbling attempts to grow closer to God, encouraging us as she invites us to laugh, cry, love, embrace life, and pray! In her humorous, conversational style, Pierce laughs at her mistakes and her prayers that seem more like advertising jingles (Lord, I need a break today, and Can you hear me now, Lord?). In Confessions of a Prayer Wimp, you’ll come to understand that faith is less about what you are or do or say, and more about who God is—someone who loves you no matter what you do.

Publisher's Weekly

For a woman who confesses to being a shallow thinker and says she prefers to take life one sunrise at a time, Pierce offers some rich life wisdom as she discusses the disciplines of faith and practical prayer. Pierce (humor columnist for Focus on the Family's LifeWise magazine and author of When Did I Stop Being Barbie and Become Mrs. Potato Head?) tenders comical asides to everyday hassles, irritations and frustrations while simultaneously nudging readers to give thanks for these annoying episodes as they frequently become the purveyors of peace, hope and joy. With a chuckle on every page, readers will discover fresh twists to old struggles on body image, money issues, child-rearing and marriage. Pierce brings humor to the forefront as she details her failures in the prayer department, calling herself a prayer worrier whose only recourse to total meltdown is to recognize her utter dependence upon God. Throughout this three-part comedy act, spiritual lessons can be gleaned from such nondescript objects as hula hoops, Pine-Sol and metal bras. Pierce's zany take on pairing prayer with life has the potential to do what few Christian books ever manage: to appeal to Christians and those outside the faith in equal measure. (Jan.)
