Don't Miss Your Life!

An Uncommon Guide to Living with Freedom, Laughter, and Grace

About The Book

The award-winning author of the dearest dorothy novels, called by Guideposts “one of today’s most popular and bestloved Christian humorists,” motivates readers to laugh, play, and relish the good things in life.

Charlene Ann Baumbich has always spoken and written about the layers of life just as she sees them—slightly off-center, mostly dead-on, and always through the lens of grace. With Don’t Miss Your Life! Charlene Ann Baumbich’s creative pedal is to the floor, her cranky gallbladder has been “left behind,” and her storytelling is in full swing. Fasten your seatbelts!

With her signature warmth and candor, Charlene offers readers insight on how to become their own best storytellers of what God is doing in their lives. She does far more than show why it is so important to slow down, enjoy our blessings, and not take things so seriously. She encourages everyone to build a “memory portfolio” of special life moments, and in doing so to grow in wisdom, learning how to see God’s hand in our daily lives is the key to a rich and fulfilling life.

"Charlene has the charm of putting a sparkle in even the most trivial of experiences... making them bright spots... I felt like a window was opening from a narrow tunnel -- and ahead were shiny spots of joy... making even what could be dull and drab take on an appearance of brightness." -- Barbara Johnson, author of Splashes of Joy in the Cesspools of Life

"Charlene's outrageous humor will tickle you with life-giving laughter!" -- Patsy Clairmont, author of God Uses Cracked Pots and Under His Wings
