Reviews - What do customers think about Laughter Calls Me?
From fear to faith Apr 15, 2007
Laughter Calls Me totally inspired me. Once I began the book I could not stop reading it. I read it from cover to cover in one sitting. Catherine Brown's testimony of perseverence and endurance in a seemingly hopeless situation encouraged me greatly. There are so many things in this life to be afraid of, especially as a parent for your children. I was afraid of all the scary things that could happen to my kids, but after finishing Laughter Calls Me, I was encouraged to leave all my fears with the God who made us and loves us better than anyone.
Laughter Calls Me is a testimony of the faithfulness of a great and mighty God and His ability to deliver from the clutches of the sickest of sins. Our loving Father carried and guided Catherine through the darkest of darkness. This testimony is even more proof that there is nothing too hard for the Lord. God can reach into the sickest sin and bring beauty from it. As you finish this book you will come away fearing nothing but rather you will stand in awe of the One who is able to save us from all sin - our own and the sin of others.
Laughter Calls Me will change your perspective and it will fix your gaze on the glory of the Lord! Read this book and see what great things He has done. He longs to do great things in your life too!
Out of tragedies come blessings Apr 1, 2007
The horrors of what "Catherine" went through would lead a reader to think that the impact of all this on the rest of her life would have surely been tragic. And except for the interventon of the Lord I am sure that would have been so. But intervene He did and it is so obvious that she have allowed the Lord to do a mighty work of healing in her life. Instead of bitterness flowing from this, there is love and a passion for the purity of truth. There is grace and mercy in what she does now. There is a Scripture in Psalms- Mercy and truth have met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other. That is perfect healing. The Lord has healed her wounds and that is why there is now so much fruit in her life. Oil cannot be released from a jar unless the jar has been "broken." Then the oil can flow and heal others. "Catherine" has told her story in all of its horrid details, sparing her reader nothing. She has been broken and she tells of it. But she has also been healed and that healing gives her readers hope and healing themselves.
From HIppie to Heroine Mar 31, 2007
The author writes well and quickly pulls the reader into the story. And a remarkable story it is. She easily could have died of an overdose while living the free-wheeling hippie life. But due to God's hand on her, her life was spared even when she was pursued by evil. Few have walked where she has in saving her children from their pedophile, pornographic father. She became a responsible, loving mother, devoted Christian and found a good life after her long circuitous searching. Inspirational. Gives hope to any family who has a member they think is hopeless. This book is being studied by our daughter's church in Allentown. A magnificently inspiring testimony.
A Must Read Christian Book Exposing Pedophiles Nov 30, 2006
I could not put down the book Laughter Calls Me by Catherine Brown, which is a pseudonym of Deborah Dombrowski. It was a powerful testament to the grace and love of our Lord Jesus Christ for each of us. Laughter Calls Me is a candid and riveting autobiography of Deborah Dombrowski's struggles to fill a void that only a personal relationship with Jesus Christ can fill.
Finally, a spiritual encounter with Our Lord Jesus Christ in a simple barn turned Deborah's life around. From there, God began to shape and mold her into what He wanted her to be. Though Deborah's journey wasn't a smooth one, it is one which should be an inspiration to anyone who is seeking the biblical God.
However, at this point the story is only half-over. Deborah marries a troubled young man named Tom and together they are blessed with four children. Sadly, these beautiful children were abused sexually not only by their bisexual father, but their grandparents as well. To say that this story opened my eyes to the secret sins passed down from one generation to another concerning child abuse is an understatement. It brought tears to my eyes to read of the suffering of children so young by the hands of those they loved. These innocent souls endured hardships that no one should ever have to live through and yet they survived. In the end, God heals and restores even the ability to forgive and move on.
Laughter Calls Me is a wake-up call to the lurid underground world of child pornography which continues to plague our children globally. According to studies, pedophiles are usually repeat offenders who seek to unite with other pedophiles in order to harm helpless children. Take the time to educate yourself on child pedophiles, so that you may save your child or someone else's from monsters with human faces. Laughter Calls Me by Catherine Brown [Deborah Dombrowski] is a perfect starting place.
