"does this church make me look fat?"

my take: I loved this. I laughed. I cried. I came away a better person. The perfect trifecta for me & my sister.

A small book with big changes for Rhoda. She goes from belief to faith. And This. Girl. Can. Write. I love her vocabulary and her fashionable taste.

If you live in the Holland area you'll especially enjoy the references to local restaurants and such.

The only thing i didn't like was the cover. Mennonite in a Little Black Dress had a much better one.

my source: Deborah Sterken came breathless to pilates because she couldn't put this down ... great endorsement! bought it at costco (in hardcover) later that day ~ worth every penny.

my verdict: worth a read.

*UPDATE* I saw Mennonite Meets Mr. Right at Target and got very excited that she'd written another book ... not so. It's Does This Church re-titled. Guess it wasn't selling well. The cover is better than this one.

  1. I saw this one on the recommendations shelf at the library and picked it up... but had to turn it back in before I got a chance to start it. Good to know you have one, because I do want to read it! Especially after this review.

  2. Laughed/cried/came away a better person--no brainer!

  3. The old "laughed/cried/made me a better person" endorsement is enough for me to read it!
