The title of this book alone catches my attention.
 What in the world is the author talking about?
 Her dress size?
 Her outfit?

The author, Rhoda Janzen,  returns to church  in her adult life, after not being an active church goer since she was 12.  She is dating a man who is an very active Church goer, so she begins to attend church with him. She finds herself going through a journey of faith and love. The book is really good!!!  Read it, give it as a gift to your girlfriend, sister, or anyone!

The church she is attending is not the Mennonite church she was raised in, but a Pentecostal church. If you are feeling distant from an organized church setting, this book might be a really good read for you. It's her story of love, faith, finding strength in her illness, and faith in God.
This book is about life as we know it: family, love, marriage, illness, and faith.

You can get a copy from the author over at her web site-look for locations where the book is sold near the bottom of the page.
