I'm okay.....God Made me This Way! Mar 9, 2005
This book made me understand that God planed for me to be the way I am and that it's okay! This book lifts you up and makes you think about the things you say about yourself. Gotta read this book!
Laugh and then laugh some more Jan 18, 2004
When my husband came home with this book I was a little miffed.....I hoped he wasn't saying I resembled Mrs. Potato Head. Once I started the book I couldn't put it down. The author's stories of her life ring true to any woman not just those in the menopausal stage of life. I just turned 26 and could see myself all through the book. The book is also about God's love for us and how to enhance that relationship. A wonderful read.
Even for young women Oct 3, 2003
As I started reading the book I realized that I relate to a lot of the topics, even though I am only 25. The book made me laugh, cry, and think about important things in life. It really helped me look at getting older in a different perspective. I would recommend this book not only to older women, but also to 25 year olds!
Take Mrs. Potato Head home with you Sep 10, 2003
This book is funny, real, practical and brings you to important things in life... pointing the reader to the love and grace of God. Mary shares her heart, her sense of humor and her life stories in a really wonderful way. It can be read all at once, or enjoyed and savored one chapter at a time, which is what I did. There are helpful questions that make you think at the end of each chapter. I loved it.
