Book Review: "Permission Slips" By Sherri Shepherd (7325 hits)
“Permission Slips is for every woman trying to take care of everyone around her - and nonetheless dropping the ball someplace. It's about making mistakes, and moving on. Sometimes it's about making the same mistake fifteen times in a row, but always moving on, once the lesson is learned. Throw in a dash of unexpected love for an ornery baby, an amazing Hail Mary pass thrown during the fourth quarter of my career, and I felt I had a story to tell. Finally, this book is a shout-out to anyone who's said something dumb, in front of one person, two people, or the entire United States of YouTube. I'm your patron saint." -- Sherri Shepherd
A devout Christian, Sherri comically chronicles her own struggles to keep up with the many roles she plays daily and speaks from the heart giving advice and inspiration, with the core message that it's okay to give yourself a “permission slip” when things don't work out as planned.
* It's Jesus or Jail
* Marriage, the Hard Way

Any woman juggling being a mother, sister, wife, friend, will enjoy Sherri’s anecdotes and be comforted that the world will not end if you step back and catch your breath.
