The Purse Driven Life by Anita Renfroe

Non-Fiction: Christian Humor. Paperback from NavPress. Published in 2005. 144 pages. Borrowed from Jodi Olds of Plainwell, MI.

My friend Jodi read an excerpt from this book at a recent ladies dinner. The authors description of a mammogram was enough to make we want to read the rest of the book. She's very funny. It's not all side splitting funny, but it has it's moments and is certainly a good book for lightening your mood. Probably would not be as funny for a guy, but my husband read some parts of it and got a good laugh or two out of it as well. Nice light reading.

Publisher's summary:
The Purse-Driven Life isn't exactly about finding the deeper meaning of life; it's more about shifting your perspective just enough to locate the deep humor and joy waiting to be uncovered in everyday life. Renfroe offers a pull-no-punches look at the life of women, exploring such areas as:

-Trying to understand our husbands
- Mammograms and their fallout
- Hoping our kids don't end up on Jerry Springer

This is the stuff that could drive a person crazy, but won't once you look at life through Renfroe's glasses. Being a female in mid-life is not for wimps. But, it's a great time to discover the humorous aspects of our shared experiences and realize we are not alone.
