I Thought There Would be Cake
Full Product Description
- Ever felt wrong-footed by life?
- Filled with humour and honesty, this book is a candid look at our foibles and faith
- You'll discover new routes around life's diversions and bumps
Life never turns out as we expected. But connecting honestly with the one we're really in can bring all sorts of consolation...
I Thought There Would Be Cake explores - with the author's characteristic empathy and humour - some of the everyday issues we face, in order to help us think about how we might live life a little better. With each chapter drawing on personal experience and featuring an original illustration, the topics include:
- taking responsibility (the need to accept failure)
- your crap/my crap (the boundaries between caring and taking on others' worries and stresses)
- what sort of special? (what it means to be unique in a sea of unique people)
- comparisons (the destructiveness of comparing ourselves to other people)
- affirmation (the healthy and unhealthy need)
- inner conflict (believing we can do anything/nothing at all)
- numbers (the power of social media)
- never chosen (finding our value in who we are in each situation, not in the people around us)
- major crisis in a minor moment (keeping things in proportion)
- regret (spending less time evaluating ourselves and more time just being ourselves)
Candid but powerfully reassuring, the book reminds us that we are each made - fearfully and wonderfully - in the image of God, our true source of confidence, comfort and joy.
