I am delighted to announce that in a couple of weeks, mid-October, a couple of my most stupid moments are to be included in a compilation of Stupid Moments, edited by Yvonne Lehman. I think I am delighted. But then again, people will know some of my most stupid moments. If someone learns from my mistakes, however, all is good. This book will be available for purchase through Grace Publishing, The Cove Bookstore near Asheville, NC, and from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other bookstores.
You might ask, Why would writers unveil their most stupid moments? So others can learn from previous mistakes--we all make them--and that God can turn mistakes and blunders into good. Romans 8:28.
This latest book of the Moments series includes "62 Revealing Stories About Those Sensitive Times and What We Learn from Them."
The instant Adam and Eve bit into forbidden fruit, stupid moments became a fact of life. The experiences can range from laughable to lamentable, humbling to humiliating. Whether they result from brilliant ideas...that weren’t, careless actions, or unanticipated circumstances, the uncomfortable aftermath often remains fresh in our minds throughout our lives.
Here, 48 authors share 62 stories illustrating that no matter what brings these moments into our lives, it’s what we learn from them that matters. Sometimes we learn something important about ourselves. Other times we learn not to take things too seriously. Ultimately, these moments serve to remind us we’re only human, and we always need the grace and redemptive power of Christ in our lives.
