For a woman who confesses to being a shallow thinker and says she prefers to take life one sunrise at a time, Pierce offers some rich life wisdom as she discusses the disciplines of faith and practical prayer. Pierce (humor columnist for Focus on the Family's LifeWise magazine and author of When Did I Stop Being Barbie and Become Mrs. Potato Head?) tenders comical asides to everyday hassles, irritations and frustrations while simultaneously nudging readers to give thanks for these annoying episodes as they frequently become the purveyors of peace, hope and joy. With a chuckle on every page, readers will discover fresh twists to old struggles on body image, money issues, child-rearing and marriage. Pierce brings humor to the forefront as she details her failures in the prayer department, calling herself a prayer worrier whose only recourse to total meltdown is to recognize her utter dependence upon God. Throughout this three-part comedy act, spiritual lessons can be gleaned from such nondescript objects as hula hoops, Pine-Sol and metal bras. Pierce's zany take on pairing prayer with life has the potential to do what few Christian books ever manage: to appeal to Christians and those outside the faith in equal measure.
