Have you ever thought…

Not only has author Marsha Marks believed the lies many of us hear and tell on a daily basis–she’s willing to talk about them!

Marsha Marks is a popular speaker and author known for her ability to blend humor with spiritual insights. Her books include 101 Simple Lessons for Life and 101 Amazing Things about God.
In If I Ignore It, It Will Go Away, Marsha Marks humorously dispels lies on subjects from "marriage" to "money" to "relationships." She uses her life experiences and misadventures to illustrate her misconceptions. Then she closes each vignette with a thought to chew on. "I didn't say the truth was pretty; I'm just telling it like it is."
As a working wife and mother, Marsha has faced a variety of challenging situations in her life. But she seems also to have learned not to take herself too seriously and to look for the humor lurking close by.
Her first lesson was learning to understand her husband. Their families operated quite differently.
"In my family it wasn't always logic that won arguments. Sometimes it was the person who yelled the loudest....So in one of my first arguments with Tom, I let him have the full brunt of my verbal fury. And he walked out." Later, "Tom explained to me that he would not put up with disrespect in how I related to him or how he related to me. We would respect each other even in our tones when we argued."
My husband and I read this book together and laughed till we cried. Yet Marsha challenged us at times, too. "Sometimes just having someone listen (to our problems) is enough...." "She heals me with her listening." I'm not sure a man would read this on his own, but we greatly enjoyed it as a couple. It would also be a great relaxer, ladies, over a cup of tea on your break time. Ah-h! Tea is on! -- Linda Demorest, Christian Book Previews.com
“The Erma Bombeck of the Bible strikes again with another zany and often poignant look at everyday life. You’ll laugh out loud as Marsha discusses topics ranging from dealing with in-laws to keeping pet guinea pigs alive.”
–Michael Morris, author of A Place Called Wiregrass and Slow Way Home
“With plenty of humor, honesty, and insight, Marsha encourages us to lift our heads out of the sand and see life for what it really is–both tremendously challenging and amazingly rewarding. So come up for some air and have a good read. It just might change your life.”
–Martha Bolton, author of numerous books of humor including Didn’t My Skin Used to
