LOL so hard that you cry and ruin your makeup Oct 17, 2007
This was the best book. I laughed so hard at times, I cried and my mascara ran (serves me right for going with the cheap stuff instead of waterproof* lesson learned). I read parts of this book to my husband and even he could not help but laugh. Anita had some pretty accurate things to say about life and the ways that a woman makes it through. I will never again have a mammogram without thinking about her words. She puts things into perspective. If you are in need of a laugh with a great Christian message, this is definitely the book to get. If you get the chance, check out her momsense video on Youtube. Share it with your mother, grandmother.
It would make a great Christmas present or shower gift for a mother to be.
So funny I dropped it in the tub!! Aug 12, 2006
I picked this book up after seeing Anita at the Women of Faith conference this year...my girlfriend grabbed it to read first, told me it was a must read! Well, she was right - laugh out loud funny and a lot of fun to share with others. I read some excerpts at a ladies tea at church today - I had 3 women come up to me afterwards and request my copy!! I am on this site buying them their own right now! Anita really knows how to remind us that God wants us to find joy in everything - even the tough days of our lives. I hope you buy one for yourself and a friend that needs a good, clean laugh.
Full of "Purse-onality" Jul 31, 2006
This is certainly not a "read before bed" book. You'll be laughing so hard, you'll want to call your mother, sister or best friend to share the humorous, laugh-til-you-cry truths throughout the book. You read your own womanly frustrations interpreted from Anita's honest, humorous, and insightful point of view. Women from 20-80 will enjoy Anita's clean comedy. The best part is sharing the laughter with other women in your life(men won't get it). My copy has been passed around the country to mom, grandma, aunts, sisters, in-laws, friends, and friends of friends alike. You'll be sorry when you finish reading, but...good news, she has more outrageous, fabulous books available!
Hilarious Commentary from a Christian Comedian Jul 29, 2006
I laughed so hard at the Purse Driven Life because Anita Renfro tells it like it is for women. She reminds us that it is OK to laugh at the uniqueness of our situation and yet we have so much in common with other Christian women. Her account of the mammogram is hilarious. So many times you will find yourself thinking that sounds just like me. She is a Christian comedian and that is not a term you hear too often. You will want extra copies to share with your friends! I definitely recommend this book.
The perfect remedy.. Jul 28, 2006
God has truly blessed Anita Renfroe with the gift to make you laugh so hard you'll almost pee your pants, and then make you see the vital importance of Christ being the center of our lives. If you love to laugh, and love to see the humor in everything, you will absolutely love the Purse-driven Life! Anita keeps it real by sharing her real life experiences as a wife and mother in this crazy world! If you are sad, or depressed..buy this book! It's the perfect remedy! (Buy it even if you're not sad!!) You won't be disappointed..and if you can, catch Anita in concert..you'll have a blast!!
