just finished - still laughing!
jen hatmaker is the amy pohler/tina fey of christian fiction
and this book had my laughing from page one.
plus she's an austin girl too!
i can't type all my favorite laugh-out-loud pages but here are a couple paragraphs  -
"thank you, amazon prime, first, for existing. secondly, for allowing me to make "free shipping" the justification for buying all the books and seeing only how much i saved. thirdly, for allowing me to buy boys' underwear, fish sauce, toilet bowl cleaner, and folders with brads without leaving my couch. and for shipping these items to me in four different boxes, none properly sized for the item it contains. you've made this lazy antishopper so happy." 
"thank you, netflix, for the 15 seconds between episodes to decide if i am going to do anything with my life today. the answer is inevitably no, but nobody can say you didn't give me the option."
(page 52 - 53)
i can see myself rereading this one!

you dont change the world all at once,
you change the world one well at a time.

homemade lobster mashed potatoes
& chilled champagne!

 when your father-in-law emails a funny joke, you just gotta share it !
            Joke: A true friend
 Jack goes to his friend Mike and says ..."I'm
 sleeping  with the minister's wife.   Can you keep him
 back in church for an hour after service for me?"

Mike doesn't like it, but being a friend, he agrees.

After the service, Mike starts talking to the minister, asking him all sorts of stupid questions, just to keep him occupied.

Finally the minister gets annoyed and asks Mike what he's really up to.

 Mike, feeling guilty, finally confesses to the  minister...

 "My friend is sleeping with your wife right now, so he
 asked me to keep you occupied."

The minister thinks for a minute, smiles, puts a brotherly hand on Mike's
shoulder and says...

 "You better hurry home now.  My wife died a year  ago".
