Review: There is a God! by Richard Smith and Marueen McElheron

“There is a God!” Who hasn’t uttered these words in response to life’s true miracles? A glorious sunset. Watching your toddler take her first wobbly steps. And that supreme blessing: a hospital gown that closes all the way. In this book, New York Times–bestselling author Richard Smith and Maureen McElheron identify 1,001 miracles that prove that there is in fact a God, including:

- Watching your little girl struggle with an ice-cream cone that appears bigger than she is

- Fireflies on a June night

- Knowing that your ability to explain the difference between hollandaise sauce and béchamel impresses the hell out of your date

There Is a God! will remind you of all the many things that make life wonderful.

Received for review.

I'll admit that when I first saw the book's title I didn't immediately fall in love but as I worked my way through it, reading a few items each day as I brushed my teeth, I grew to really like it.

The authors do a lovely job of presenting a collection of things that just make you smile.  A few of my favorites were:

8.  Your cat, sitting motionless, listening to classical music.
375.  The person you kill over and over again in your thoughts just ate bad shrimp.
618.  Making the last car payment.

If you're looking for a fun, fast read that will remind you of the best things in life this is it.  Whether you read it in a single sitting or just a few each day it is almost guaranteed to make you smile.  I definitely recommend it!

★★★★ = Really Liked It
