This book is delightful!! It is a fast read, since the chapters are so short; but mainly because it is so interesting I couldn’t put it down until I had finished the book! I grew up in that church, and know many of the people in the book; so that gave me an extra smile and made it a little more personal to read. It was well-written, funny, and uplifting. But most importantly, she gave our Lord Jesus all the credit and praise for the many blessings He has placed in their life. I read my sister’s copy of this book, but am also purchasing my own copy. There is a young lady at my church aspiring to be a teacher that could glean wisdom from this book also. Thank you Annette, for opening up and giving us a peek into you and your family’s life. I loved every single page and want to say a hearty CONGRATULATIONS on a job well done!!
