About this title


When Nell Bobo married an aspiring minister, she might have imagined settling down into a steady, unassuming, sometimes even quiet life of service. But now, more than sixty years later, her life has been anything but that-and she has the stories to prove it. Like the story about the time she and her husband, standing in the churchyard after a Sunday evening service, were repeatedly shot at by the local drunk who was, fortunately, too intoxicated to hit his mark. Or the time an elderly man whose wooden leg, during a baptism service, detached and floated to the top of the baptismal, prompting a child in the congregation to erupt with, "It floats!" Through thirty-plus stories of humor and heartache, Nell takes readers on the ride that was her life as the minister's wife. She grapples with the death of her baby, watches as her former beloved church home burns to the ground, and endures her child's near-fatal meningitis, after which her faith is restored in the most unexpected way-through the unconventional use of a piece of string. She offers a laugh as a cat pounces unannounced on the church piano, terrifying the choir, and a smile when a thunderstorm-induced power outage enables a shy man to answer an altar call in the dark. But whether born of fear, sorrow, humor, or extreme joy, Nell's experiences always lead her back to trusting the Lord, proving that even when it rains on your parade, God sends an umbrella!
