Item description for Splashes of Joy in the Cesspools of Life by Barbara Johnson...
Overview The "Geranium Lady" strikes again with zany humor and sincere compassion to encourage millions of readers to look for the splashes of joy in their lives. Her spirit of joy and moving personal stories will inspire readers while tickling their funny bone. The popular humorist is author of the best-selling Mama, Get the Hammer!, Pack Up Your Gloomees in a Great Big Box, and Stick a Geranium in Your Hat
Barbara Johnson's approach to life is positive, uplifting, therapeutic and fun. Barbara Johnson is far from being a cock-eyed optimist―blind to life's grief and disappointment. In fact, her entire ministry of joy and encouragement began in the "slimy cesspool" of her own pain. She is a "clear-eyed" optimist. And that's why her laughter is so infectious and her widom rings so true in this joy-giving book, which offers giggles and guidance to help you:
shore up a sinking self-esteem
reach the other side of your grief
weather your stress and get rid of your guilt
restore the joys of motherhood
repair broken relationships with your children
learn to live with your illness
cultivate your patience―even when you just don't think you can wait
sustain an effective prayer life
make peace with aging―and go for healthy maturity
"Almost everyone needs a splash of joy to get through the mess, to get cleaned off and get sweetened up―refreshed and ready to go again," Barbara Johnson says.

Splashes of Joy in the Cesspools of Life Aug 31, 2005
A friend who lost her 26 year old son in a car accident introduced me to Barbara Johnson's books. I just lost my 26 year old daughter in a car accident. The Christian humor is therapeutic. It also helps me realize I'm not the only one in this world who has suffered tragic loss, and is helping me deal with and live with that loss.

Adversity is not the end! Sep 15, 2000
This is a wonderful book! It made me cry and laugh at the same time. The author presents adversity not as the end of our lives but as an opportunity to grow and learn. The book is easy to read but at the same time very profound and inspirational. I would recommend it to anyone who is going through difficult times. The book would help people to be joyful in the midst of adversity.
