This book will lift your spirits while reassuring you of the one true God who loves you and provides for you in all life's circumstances." - - Gloria Ruppel (Women's Ministry Director, St. Timothy Lutheran Church)
"Perry is so funny! While her stories are full of humor, they also offer deep reflections on life, healing, and finding peace through trials. My favorite story is one of the few that includes no humor. It's the story of how in a matter of hours, Shannon received news that her father had a heart attack, her husband had cancer, and Hurrican Ike was barreling towards them. She talks about how all she could pray were four words - "God, I trust you." This story touched me deeply. Each story/chapter also ends with a few reflective questions and space to write in your own answers. This is a must read, and a book that I will be recommending to the special women in my life for sure!" - - My Four Monkeys
"[Shannon's] a funny lady!" - - LOLwith God.com

"['Shannon] has the knowledge and experience to address bullying and other difficult issues that include eating disorders, drug use, and other problems that today's tweens and teens must address and avoid. Well researched and filled with good advice, I would recommend this book for any parent of a young girl and boy who wants to deal with these issues." - - BookReviews
