When it is cold outside one of my favorite things to do is to pick up a good book and curl up with a nice cup of hot coffee or tea! When I was offered the chance to review "Does This Church Make Me Look Fat?" I naturally jumped at the chance to use the book as a way to get in some much needed quiet time for myself! I also knew that this would be a book that would sit well with me.
To no surprise I enjoyed every page of the book. It was fun, heartfelt, and relatable. As someone who would rather spend my Sunday afternoons chatting with girlfriends than in church (To each his own. This is not a place to judge one another.) I really related to this book. I saw a lot of similar qualities in myself that Rhoda possessed. It was a book that I read easily while waiting in the car to pick the kiddos up from school. In my opinion the book was a bit jumpy so I always made sure that when I picked it up I had enough time to read an entire chapter before having to put it back down.
My favorite line from the entire book was: "Sometimes I even added tasks to a list retroactively, after I have already done them, just for the pleasure of crossing them out."
That is so me. Hehe.
Who is this book for you ask?
Does This Church Make Me Look Fat? is for people who have a problem with organized religion but can't quite dismiss the notion of God, and for those who secretly sing hymns in their cars but generally prefer a nice mimosa brunch to church. It is the story of what it means to find joy in love, strength in illness, and- incredibly, surprisingly- faith in a big-hearted-God.
Does this seem like a book that you would enjoy curling up with?
