Kat Merrigan felt there was a lot of confusion and misunderstanding surrounding what it actually means to be a Christian. Through a mix of humor, heart and personal experiences, she attempts to help debunk and demystify the misconceptions of Christianity that turn people away from what can be a very life-changing and enriching experience. The book poses questions such as:

  • If you’ve ever doubted God has a sense of humor, have you considered a penguin or a duck-billed platypus?
  • How do you determine who you really are?
  • Does being a Christian mean giving up everything?

Her goal is to help bring clarity and a practical view of what it means to follow the Lord and encourage readers to do some investigating of their own. Written from the viewpoint of someone who has been a dedicated Christian for more than 25 years, it is an honest, sometimes raw and emotional, but always sincere and hopeful exploration. There are many humorous stories and anecdotes throughout as Kat takes the reader along on her journey.

Kat also celebrates those that have made a huge difference in her life, such as her sister-in-law, who stood by her side for more than thirty years. She was the one who demonstrated a consistent devotion and dedication to faith, which challenged the author to follow in her footsteps.

Faith is a serious commitment and shouldn’t be taken lightly, but it can also be where you find peace, joy, and even hope. All of those things should leave you with a smile on your face!
