Does This Church Make Me Look Fat? by Rhoda Janzen

I just finished the book “Mennonite in a Little Black Dress, Does This Church Make Me Look Fat?” by Rhoda Janzen.  The title spoke to me and I couldn’t wait to dig in.  Brought up a Catholic girl, I suddenly found myself trying hard to identify with the Catholic ways and although my loyalty has always been there my focus on religion shifted in my early adult years.  Jansen raised in a strong Mennonite upbringing found herself unsure of her place as a Mennonite and I immediately wanted to know more.

If you have read the first book “Mennonite in a Little Black Dress, A Memoir of Going Home” you are more than ready for the next installment.  I have not read the first installment but I felt that I could jump in.  And I was right the book is captivating from the first few pages. The book is about newly divorced Janzen, cancer and new love.  The book is light-hearted from start to finish and watching someone face these trials in life in such an optimistic way is refreshing.

Janzen finds love from her opposite a church going stead fast Christian whom was once a drug dealer and alcoholic and is not ashamed to share his story.  As there relationship starts to form and Janzen embraces Mitch’s church she finds herself with breast cancer.

I give this book 5 stars it’s the perfect read to cuddle up with and get lost in Janzen’s life.
