With this book Jessie is there to be your friend through it all. She gives the tough stuff to us straight, but in a style Mary Poppins would appreciate: with a good helping of sugar- or rather of humor and empathy.
I ran into Jessie's blog a couple years ago and have continued following her no matter how many times I clean out my overflowing inbox. Everything she writes is likely to bring me a smile if not a real LOL. I feel like we're friends hanging out talking about kids, naps, life, and the Bible.
My favorite bits were the footnotes she added imagining what Moses would have tweeted while in the wilderness (My daughter asked me what was so funny and wanted me to keep reading aloud when I shared with her), and her analogy of our life being like a river, waterfalls and all. Amen!
This book is so useful for encouraging us to step out of the boat I passed on my copy to my pastor's wife. It's not every day you find a book a brand new Christian can pick up, but those who have been walking with Jesus for decades can still learn from.
Caveat: I got a free copy from Jessie because my story is one of several she included from her blog friends. She didn't tell me what to write or anything, just sent me a signed copy. I hope I get mine back after my pastor's wife is done with it!
