It includes some of the funniest stories from today’s Christian writers like Barbara Johnson, John Ortberg, Mark Buchanan, Patsy Clairmont, Becky Freeman, Chonda Pierce, and more. Whether the topic is kids, marriage, pets, church, parenting, aging, or life’s most embarrassing moments, the writers will help you keep life in perspective by revealing their own foibles, follies, and failings.

Publisher's Weekly

Seasoned comedic authors Spangler (She Who Laughs, Lasts!) and MacDonald (Humor for the Heart) draw upon Christendom's funniest writers and speakers for some "laugh till you drop" stories, quips and anecdotes of life experiences. Well-regarded comediennes Barbara Johnson, Chonda Pierce, Patsy Clairmont, Luci Swindoll, Sheila Walsh and Marilyn Meberg are some of the many contributors. The target audience is clearly women, but a few male writers offer pieces as well: Christian comics Ken Davis and Mark Lowry add to the ensemble, along with syndicated columnist Dave Barry, who contributes a piece that is long on gender humor but devoid of Christian content. In over 75 hilarious stories, Spangler and MacDonald have accomplished their goal of finding joy amidst some of life's not-so-humorous happenings. With a simple twist in perspective and a quick nod toward heaven, the disastrous is transformed into the deliriously funny. Take Becky Freeman's step back into the college scene as a middle-aged wife and mother; on her first day, she receives a shock to her already stressed self-esteem. Enter a good friend/hairdresser boldly attempting to turn back the ravages of time with hair color, which ends up giving more color... but less hair. Illness, marriage, kids, money, eating, vacationing: no topic is out of range when a group of women, intent on seeing the sunny side of life, get together for a laugh. Regrettably, this compilation will likely only appeal to female readers, whose male counterparts won't see past the floral cover and predominantly female-oriented topics. (Jan.)

    I really wasn't happy with this book. I found the short stories to be just stories without anything really funny in them. I have heard several of the storytellers on the radio and TV and found them really great, but these were blah. My husband and I have read the stories and we are puzzled as to when we will 'start' laughing, versus when we will 'stop laughing', as the description reads. I would skip over this one.

    I haven't read it but was pleased with what I saw and wished I had ordered more to give as gifts. Might still do that. Price was great for gift giving.

    To be completely honest I have only read a few jokes in the beginning of the book but so far I was not rolling in laughter as the description indicates.

    It was pretty good. I enjoyed it, but I didn't laugh as much as the description suggests.

    If laughter is the best medicine this will keep you healthy. From what I have had the chance to read, it is very enjoyable. There were two stories so far that would score a 5 on the laugh out loud scale. I bought some as gifts and they were anxious to get started reading them.
