About the Book

They were young and in love and called to serve the Lord. And perhaps if Ruth and Lee Truman had even suspected what lay ahead, they might have turned and fled, but thank goodness they didn’t. Or we would have missed this warm and often hilarious look at life within the goldfish bowl of the ministry.

From their very first church appointment, it became obvious what the Trumans would attract humorous and bizarre situations throughout their lives. How else can they explain the Bali dancer at the church social? Or the frozen chickens that spilled across the highway and nearly caused hypothermia? Or the church that looked like a half-buried septic tank? Or the parishioner who served coffee from her hot-water bottle?
