The Day I Woke Up As An
Ostrich - An Odd Collection for Christians is a wonderful collection
of short stories, poems, songs and a provocative look at how some
quotes from the bible have been misquoted. There is also a great
article on some "Good Reason to Quit Smoking", which will make one stop
The Day I Woke Up as an
will definitely leave you feeling uplifted and glad you took the time
to peek into the pages! It is a quick read and one that you can pick up
again and again and take something new away with you. Ms. Sayles has
done a marvelous job of sharing her thoughts on what it means to be a
Christian and a few other subjects.

I sat down to read this
little book not knowing for sure what I might find, I was pleasantly
surprised. Starting off was a Mom and wife who woke up an Ostrich but
no one seemed to notice. Hey! I could relate, can't you? That gave me a
good chuckle as I relaxed in my read.
Much to my delight this book
was packed full of good insight for any Christian as the read turned to
advice based on solid Scriptural backing. For example, one topic is "10
Reasons Christians Make the Best Lovers!" Has that wet your appetite?
Want to know what those reasons are? I'm not telling!
Do you like to read poetry
that has a message but is gentle and tender, you'll find it here much
to your enjoyment, along with a listing of gentle correction to those
of us who might misquote, misuse or even think a saying is Gospel Truth
when it is no where to be found in the Word of God! Interesting!
All in all a quick relaxing
and informative read that I think you will enjoy.

The Day I Woke Up An Ostrich is a collection of stories
and poems, part fiction, part non-fiction, and is true to her own
description as “an odd collection for Christians,” except I did not
find it that odd. Kristi includes comments on many excerpts from the
Old and New Testament, and I consider her something of a scholar,
whether she knows it or not. She does not put on airs, and speaks with
a charming humility about what’s on her mind. Her story about a dating
site and the main character’s experiences with it was funny and
fascinating. Kristi mentions that she attends a non-denominational
church, and this is a theme throughout. She is not into tight-laced
fatheads and displays skill in quoting scripture about the fact that
Christians make better lovers. She states that a recent survey showed
85% of Americans are Christians, and suggests that single girls take
heart; some of them have to be guys.
