Beth’s Review

If you’re looking for a devotional that not only offers thought-provoking insights, but also a good “sprinkle” of chuckles with each turn of the page, then Two Scoops is just the book for you!

What I really liked about Jeanette’s book was her willingness to show her “messy” side, giving me plenty of opportunities to relate to her world! Because of this down-to-earth approach, I never felt like she came across as preachy or holier-than-thou. Most of all, I appreciated how her humility shined through in the many stories of how God has grown her faith through the difficulties of life and marriage.

    I’m always one for finding the “funny” in life. It sure makes the messiness more tolerable! 🙂 Thanks again for your support, Ann!
