Format: Paperback
Todd Starne's book is a scream! His style of writing is laced with great good humor, while wisdom and practical advise is mixed throughout. Todd also uses verses from the Bible to reinforce his stories. We watch him deal with a potential death sentence: a defective aortic valve; the beginning of a major weight loss program; the death of both his parents within a few years time; and preparation to run the New York Marathon. Although this sounds like a book of depressing events, Todd managers to bring a warmth and wit to the story. This is a fast read and one that make you wish there was more of the story when you reach the conclusion.

Todd Starnes'story is a down to earth account of how he is dealing with some serious issues in life. His Southern Baptist accounts will have you laughing at one moment and then crying at the next. However, his story is written to humorously encourage all readers. If dealing with heart problems or obesity, Todd has encouragement for you. If dealing with other issues in life, Todd's advice remains the same. Take one step at a time. Set realistic goals. And by all means, establish a support system which includes God, family, and friends.
I purchased 12 copies of this book for my friends and family, and have heard nothing but great reviews from them!

Love Todd Starnes & pray for his safety every night. He's telling the truth about the Obama administration & that doesn't always go over really well. What's going on behind the scense breaks my heart. I pray for my country also. If you care, please read this book & his other "God Less America!" Please & thank you, mary ellen

They Popped My Hood And Found Gravy On The Dipstick
by: Todd Starnes
[...]

Mr. Starnes is the same humorous light hearted guy in person as he comes across in his book.
I found myself transported back to my past of big Southern fried dinners, sweet potato pies and buttery rolls. I blushed remembering the harsh and cruel comments I had endured as an overweight youth. I applauded Mr. Starnes' challenged to Christian leadership on the subject of gluttony. After inhaling the book in one day, I thought about it for weeks. How ironic that I would be blessed to meet and hear Mr. Starnes speak, buy and read his book at a defining turning point of my own. His words were more than inspirational, they have become more like driving directions for my own future.
Thank you Mr. Stearns for sharing your life with a fellow Mississippian, writer and lover of sweet potato pie.

Favorite Passages:

"I'm not sure why things turned out the way they did for me. I don't have a clue, I know that it's part of God's master plan for my life, but honestly, I don't know where I'm going next week, much less next year. But I do know this: we are called as His children to believe, to step out in faith, and trust that God will guide our path."

Take Away Value:

Lyrics from, The Song of the Sparrow.
I sing because I'm happy, I sing because I'm free, for his eyes is on the sparrow, I know he watches me.

"The only reason I survive these past two years is because my relationship with Jesus Christ."

Warnings:

Isn't that true for anything we survive. This book isn't for you if you don't want to make a change for the better in your own life.
