Publisher's Summary

In her highly-anticipated nonfiction debut, humorist, popular blogger, and USA Today best-selling author Susannah B. Lewis (Whoa! Susannah) uses dry wit and an eye for the absurd to find laughter in even the most challenging circumstances.

Millions of online fans have flocked to Susannah B. Lewis's hysterical, take-no-prisoners videos that capture her uproarious yet deeply faithful view of the world. Now she brings to book form her keen eye for the absurd as she reveals her experiences growing up in a small Tennessee town. From the time an escaped albino panther wandered into her backyard to the Thanksgiving when an egg in the table's centerpiece hatched a baby chicken to the kind neighbors who brought casseroles in Tupperware for months - even years - after her father died when she was just 11 years old, the stories she tells delve deeply into the rich culture of the South that molded her. Clinging to the promises of God in times of grief and looking for every opportunity to laugh, Lewis is the wry yet wise girl next door who invites you to sit a spell beside her on the front porch.

Loved it!

Susannah Lewis is easy to relate to; time flew by listening to her book. She narrates this herself; it's like listening to an old friend talk about life's ups and downs, finding joy (eventually) in all things. I laughed and cried, and generally felt like someone else in the world felt like I have felt at times.
Highly recommend!

Hilarious and soul-feeding

I loved listening to Susannah’s stories, her southern drawl and the way she infused God’s teaching and Bible verses into everyday life stuff. I already want to listen to it again!

Great devotional!

I absolutely loved listening to this book. Susannah narrating her own stories couldn't get any better. There were a lot of moments listening in the car pickup line at school where I had to turn it off and wipe my tears before I pulled forward. Some happy tears, tears of affirmation, and just some topics that really hit home for me. I highly recommend this audio book for anyone who is always on the go, loves some good old fashioned southern humor, loves to listen to great stories, and needs a little more of the good word in their life (which, who doesn't?)

love it!

I've never laughed or cried so hard reading (listening to) a book before. I love you Susannah ❤️ I lost my mom and dad within one year (April 2019 and February 2020). and your book helped me in my grief. Thank you for sharing your gift.
