Does This Church Make Me Look Fat?

A Mennonite Finds Faith, Meets Mr. Right, and Solves Her Lady Problems
By Rhoda Janzen (Audiobook, 2012)
At the end of her bestselling memoir Mennonite in a Little Black Dress, Rhoda Janzen had reconnected with her family roots, though her future felt uncertain. When this overeducated professor starts dating the most unlikely of men-a weight-liftin', church-goin', truck-drivin' rocker named Mitch-she begins a surprising journey to faith and love.



Nothing says, "Let's get to know each other!" like lady problems on an epic scale, but Mitch vows to stay by her side. Convinced that his bedrock character has something to do with his Pentecostal church, Rhoda suits up for a brave new world of sparkler pom-poms and hand-clappin' hallelujahs.



Written with her trademark "uproarious, bawdy sense of humor" (Minneapolis Star-Tribune), MENNONITE MEETS MR. RIGHT is witty and moving, perfect for anyone who has taken an unexpected detour only to find that new roads lead to rich destinations.

  • Praise for Mennonite in a Little Black Dress:

    "It is rare that I literally laugh out loud while reading, but Rhoda Janzen's voice--singular, deadpan, sharp-witted and honest--slayed me."  (Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love).

  • "I loved this book, and Rhoda Janzen.  She is a terrific, pithy, beautiful writer, a reliable, sympathetic narrator and a fantastically good sport." (Kate Christensen, The New York Times Book Review).

  • "Hilarious and touching." (People (four stars)).

  • "A hilarious collection of musings on Janzen's childhood, marriage, and eccentric family... Janzen mines Mennonite culture for comic effect, but she does so with love."
