By Barbara Johnson

Paperback, 1990 pub: Name whited out on inside cover

 Barbara Johnson's zany humor and sincere compassion are captured here! With the wit and humor of an Erma Bombeck, she candidly shares the events in her life that brought her to the depths of despair--and how God's grace brought her back. From her husband's near fatal accident to the loss of her sons and the homosexuality of another, Barbara reveals her own prescription for finding "life's little sparkles," even in the midst of life's most crippling sorrows. The fly page has a few notes in it-otherwise clean and tight
