Thanks to Tarn (who I met at Spring Harvest in 2014) for writing this book, and inviting endorsement. The book’s out in August. I wrote:
Within the church, there are a number of topics that are often avoided, and a tendency not to admit that we are humans living imperfect lives, and struggling with difficult times. No one could accuse Tarn of this in this book, which mixes humour, insights, gentle challenges and a sense of support and encouragement as we learn from Tarn’s journey, and other voices that she has drawn upon! No one should finish reading this book feeling chastised, but rather have learnt to practice ‘kindsight’: an ability to learn to be kind to ourselves (and others) in our past, present and future. Tarn is an engaging public speaker, and this translates well into this book. Anyone who can get the phrase ‘codswallop’ naturally into a book, and recommends that “it is better to eat a Mars Bar with good friends, than to eat Broccoli alone” gets my vote!
