I LOVE Patsy Clairmont. If you've never seen her in person, you cant fully appreciate her! She can tell a story about poop that was keep me on the edge of my seat - I guarantee it! So I picked this book up at the latest Women of Faith conference. Mainly because she was talking about her best friend who passed away with cancer & how she was the light in her life - she gave off sparks of light like a firefly. It made me just have to pick this book up.

It didnt disappoint. It was an easy read that I would be laughing about a story Patsy would tell & then find she had woven it back to a story or scripture in the Bible. I love when people can do that.... makes the Bible come to life!

The story of the man who created the Nobel Peace Prize really touched me - I'll be doing a story on that on my Home many small stories that make an impact!!!

My rating: 4 skeins... would totally recommend it to anyone... especially those who like to laugh!
