A Mennonite Finds Faith, Meets Mr. Right, and Solves Her Lady Problems
Rhoda Janzen

In her bestselling, laugh-out-loud memoir, Mennonite in a Little Black Dress (2009), rebel Rhoda Janzen returns home and reconnects with her Mennonite family after her husband leaves her for another man. This time, Rhoda is newly single and dating again. When she meets her unlikely Mr. Right, a goateed rocker with a concealed handgun permit and giant pectoral muscles (who also happens to be a Pentecostal), she knows she needs to explore his faith amid all the hand waving and hallelujahs. Does This Church Make Me Look Fat? is the story of what it means to find comfort in prayer and surprising faith in a big-hearted God.
