Melanie Shankle, the author of “Sparkly Green Earrings,” is a talented writer. Her book is a hoot! I would like to encourage women of all ages and stations in life to read this book because of Melanie’s candid and often hysterical accounts of marriage and motherhood. She also shares throughout the book of her love of Jesus. She doesn’t claim to have it all together as a wife and mother, in fact, she is very transparent about sharing her shortcomings. I found her book to be very refreshing. It’s an easy read and would be well-worth your time.
(Marsha, our pastor’s wife, is the one who told me about this book. I did my research and it did sound great. Marsha shared a story in the book about Melanie’s first experience with a toddler having a stomach virus and you just can’t believe how funny that story is! You’ve got to read this book. Thank you, Marsha, for recommending this book and for being the first to read it and give a review! Click on the underlined link above and you’ll be directed to Melanie’s blog and you can watch a trailer of the book.)
