My Teaser?

"In third grade I stole a necklace. As I labored over fractions, nibbling
a rubbery pencil eraser and spitting grainy flecks onto the floor, I
spied it glinting from Kim’s desk across the aisle."

~ from SPIRITUAL MISFIT by Michelle DeRusha



Declaring my unbelief,” writes DeRusha, “was the first step; declaring my unbelief allowed me to begin to seek authentically.”
 
Spiritual Misfit chronicles one woman’s journey toward an understanding that belief and doubt can coexist. This poignant and startlingly candid memoir reveals how being honest about our questions, our fears, and our discomfort with black-and-white definitions of faith can move us toward an authentic
  and a deepening relationship with God.                      -publisher

Michelle has me laughing out loud from the get go.
Candid anecdotes and transparency create connection.
Spiritual Misfit
available for preorder.  Releasing April 15th.

Great tease. I nibbled a few pencils too, not for the same reason though.

Sounds like a thought-provoking book.
My Teaser is from MILLSTONE.

Oooo! Great teaser transporting me to my own felony in the fourth grade. That of a small cat figurine at a friend's house. Ouch! How I smart to remember that with red face. Got my just deserts, too, as mom found out almost immediately. NEVER again did I allow lust for pretties to take me to the dark side. Still collect them - but on this side of the debit card. Seriously, though - your teaser has me running over to Michelle's place to learn more. Sounds like a good link-up - if I can ever clear my desk long enough to add yet another thing to my lists to do. I'm celebrating three years blogging this month and am crazy enough to actually be starting my own linky - hope you'll drop by next Monday and find your place among All Things Bright and Beautiful!
Joy!

Isn't it funny how we remember those bad things we did from so long ago. I love this teaser it evokes memories of being a child so well.
