Publisher's Description

What would it be like to get so close to God that we could see ourselves in his eyeballs? Not because we want to look at ourselves, but because we want to be that close to him--to the mysterious, wonderful, invisible God who reveals himself even in temptations, trials, and dangers. Can you see God when your husband gets a speeding ticket? What about when your daughter wrecks her grandfather’s truck? Is he watching while you drive down the road in a Chevette held together by wire coat hangers? With her usual sense of southern humor, Chonda Pierce invites us to open our eyes and our sense of humor as she teaches us how to catch God at work, especially in the most unlikely places. Like the time she got her ears pierced--contrary to the advice of her mother. She walked out of the jewelry store, saw two nuns, took them as a sign from God, and never wore pierced earrings again. Chonda the comedian has touched thousands of women around the country, from stage or on video. "To see or hear her is to love her," is the unanimous response. But in her writing, Chonda brings a whole new depth of insight into her humor--humor that enables readers to dispel all gloom and experience the joy of the closeness of God in their everyday lives.

Publisher's Weekly

Is it possible to see ourselves, our hardships and our heartaches in the light of God's sovereign love? Author and comedienne Pierce (It's Always Darkest Before the Fun Comes Up and Chonda Pierce on Her Soapbox) finds novel ways to ask these questions as she shares the humorous foibles of life. Although Pierce's extensive travel schedule flavors her comedic repertoire with the exotic and the sensational, it's her hometown, small-church spin on life's happenings that brings home the spiritual relevancy. Among Pierce's 29 short drawn-from-life stories, the best pieces both for comedic value and their spiritual lessons are those involving her mother. At one of Pierce's speaking engagements in Buffalo, N.Y., "Momma" livened up the crowd by innocently complimenting the audience on their gorgeous city. But, Momma continued, Buffalo natives had become so used to weather extremes that they had long ago lost all dread of hell. Pierce lives and breathes to see everyday experiences through the perspective God intends. Using her finely tuned sense of humor, she exercises perceptive discretion as she describes the spiritual struggles faced by young and old. Pierce's tales of woe always end with a joyful exclamation of God's triumphant provision, transcendent of time and circumstance. Her many fans will enjoy this quirky balance of faith and fun. (Apr.)
