This isn’t my life. Okay, it *is* my life, but not the way I envisioned it would be. I wasn’t supposed to be a divorced mother of three when I turned the big 4-0. Sure, I expected the fine lines, gray hairs and left over baby belly. What I didn’t expect was expanding our family get-togethers by one… my ex-husband’s new child bride. Ok, ok, she’s not young. Maybe. Did I mention this is not the life I planned? It could always be worse, I know. I’m lucky to have a mother who loves to babysit, a best friend who loves sarcasm, and a new friend by the name of Greg who is a child whisperer and tells me my eyes are pretty. *Sigh*… Greg. The perfect, Adonis-like God of a man who keeps flirting with me. At least I think he’s flirting with me. It’s been so long, I don’t really know. Between birthday parties, a few ill-advised bouts with make-up, and a whole slew of gymnastics classes, it’s finally time to take back some control. So, while my girls learn all about how to grip the bar, I’m going to learn how to get a grip on my life. And maybe my heart.

Have you lost your grip? A little bit of wisdom will help you retain the traction needed to keep moving along life's worn and often rocky path. Lillian McFerran's Getting a Grip on God is an assemblage of such wisdom from her own life experiences as well as the knowledge and passion of a number of sages and contemporary authors. Inside you'll find essays on 150 topics that can be helpful for sermons, retreats, discussions, devotions, or meditations. Over 300 quotes illuminate the subjects with clarity, irony, and humor. Getting a Grip on God is a compendium of the threads of reason and influence that are applicable to everyday life, and though produced through a prism of the author's Lutheran background, the text awakens a reverence for the spirit and fortitude inherent in mankind. Although written for personal clarification, insight, and understanding, the author feels the conveyed wisdom relates to parenting, maturity, family life, and community involvement. Getting a Grip on God provides biblical and liturgical references for each topic, making it an easy-to-read, educational tool. It reminds us eloquently and convincingly of the sound, practical sense found in manners, friendship, sensibility, and compassion. Get back to your roots and refocus your grip on life!
