New Book by a Better Guerra

 

I’m going to take a moment to brag on my wife, Shannon Guerra. She just released her second book, Oh My Soul: Encountering God in Honest Unconventional (and Sometimes Messy) Prayer, and it’s doing much better than my book. Of course, she is a much better writer, and she’s been doing it longer. The title says it all, but let me also add that it’s ridiculously funny, while being deeply insightful. I’m incredibly proud of my girl.

An excerpt to prove I do show up in her writing once in a while:

One kid is napping and five kids are out with Vince on a quick errand to get coffee and a new toilet seat (lest you were under the impression that life here is glamorous). He’s getting coffee because something went horribly wrong with our coffee maker on this morning, leaving the coffee ruined and putrid. And I guess you could say the same thing about the toilet seat, but I digress.

    Wow!! Better hurry up with that toilet seat!  Sounds like a great book – I’ll have to check it out – it’s not easy to write.

    I showed this post to Mrs. A. and she said, “Sounds like a great Christmas present for our small group.” Indeed.

    It’s getting some amazing endorsements. We’ve got a global missions conference going on this weekend at our church and many of them were encouraging her in writing it.
