    Hip, funny, and substantive "Hip, funny, and substantive, Fierce demands that we take a second—and a third and a fourth—look at some of the Bible’s strongest women. Alice Connor’s approachable style and deep wit make the Bible feel like a friend, and her fertile imagination places readers smack dab in the middle of the story.   Mindy turns the anxieties, the glamour, and the celebrations of her second coming-of-age into a laugh-out-loud funny collection of essays that anyone who's ever been at a turning point in their life or career can relate to. And those who've never been at a turning point can skip to the parts where she talks about meeting Bradley Cooper.

    Funny Women’s Quotes and Saying: “The problem with life is, by the time you can read women like a book, your library card has expired.”» Milton Berle “From what I understand about the female experience, the period should be called something more drastic, like the exclamation point.”. "Worie Dressar isn't your typical heroine — she's tough, she's opinionated, and she's loud. But at her core she wants to love and be loved — just like the rest of us. Cindy's special talent is in telling about life the way it is — hard parts and all — while preserving the beauty and wonder of love shining through even the darkest night." — Sarah Loudin Thomas, Christy Award-nominated.
