MORMON MISHAPS

In previous posts, I've mentioned the release of MORMON MISHAPS AND MISCHIEF by authors D.N. Giles and C.L. Beck because Giles and Beck are my friends, because MISHAPS is such a unique book, and because one of my own, true stories, "No More Baby Steps," is included inside. However, this time I am taking part in their blog tour and now have the privilege of telling you just how GREAT MISHAPS really is.

First, the cover is perfect. Each, laughing, smiling face is so contagious I can't help but giggle whenever I see it. I don't think I've ever had a book's cover affect me that way.

Second, while the stories range from sweetly humorous to down right hilarious, all are unforgettable. Some stories were so funny I laughed out loud when I read them, and I still can't help but chuckle when I think about them--or share them with someone else.

Finally, MORMON MISHAPS AND MISCHIEF is proof positive that we as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints--the human race even--shouldn't take ourselves too seriously. Mishaps and mischief are everywhere, and Giles and Beck have captured them. Why not get a copy to share with those you love this year? One of the stories just might be the perfect attention getter for your next speaking assignment.

I am a follower. This book sounds great. I'm always in need of a good laugh, or reminder not to be too serious.
