There is no end to the sources of frustration, challenge, disaster--and humor!--in a woman's life, and there is no one more skilled at finding the merriment and wisdom in these everyday foibles and events than award-winning author and popular speaker Karen Linamen. In her newest humor-packed release, Linamen (author of Just Hand Over the Chocolate and No One Will Get Hurt) guides readers on a side-splitting, hopeful, and entertaining tour of a woman's life, and in true, tongue-in-cheek Linamen style, no topic is off limits! Welcome to the Funny Farm covers everything from baby showers to cell phones, chin hair to Hamburger Helper, defrosted turkeys to Barry Manilow, and dumb blonde jokes to well-woman exams. Linamen's collection of hilarious observations, originally posted online at www.women-of-faith.com as The Funny Farm columns, will inspire and entertain (though not necessarily in that order) and ultimately shed light on principles of spiritual wellness and Christian living that will enrich the life of every reader.

From the Back Cover:

What can a woman do for an encore after she backs over her husband's new laptop with her car? How long does it take to defrost a turkey with a hair dryer? What do you say to a house guest who, before going to the bathroom, has to fish two wooden blocks and a set of car keys from your commode? There is no end to the sources of frustration, challenge, disaster--and humor!--in a woman's life, and there is no one more skilled at finding the merriment and wisdom in the everyday foibles we all share than Karen Linamen. Welcome to the Funny Farm guides you on a side-splitting, hopeful, and entertaining tour of the challenges women face--and in true, tongue-in-cheek Linamen style, no topic is off limits! These fifty readings, originally published on the Women of Faith web site (www.women-of-faith.com), cover everything from baby showers to cell phones, holiday frenzy to Hamburger Helper, dumb blonde jokes to well-woman exams. Karen's collection of observations will inspire and entertain you (though not necessarily in that order) and ultimately shed light on principles of spiritual wellness and Christian living that will enrich your life as much as her rib-tickling stories will delight your heart. Karen Linamen is a regular contributor to Today's Christian Woman and the author of numerous books, including Just Hand Over the Chocolate and No One Will Get Hurt and Sometimes I Wake Up Grumpy . . . and Sometimes I Let Him Sleep. She lives in Duncanville, Texas, with her husband and two daughters.
