Review: So Many Miracles by D. Ann Nadeau

So Many Miracles: One Woman's Conversion to Mormonism: Her Humor, Her Journey, Her Gratititude 

So Many Miracles: One Woman's Conversion to Mormonism: Her Humor, Her Journey, Her Gratitude by D. Ann Nadeau

Everyone who knew D. Ann Nadeau would have bet the bank she would never, ever join the Mormon Church. Everyone would have lost that bet.

This humorous Mormon story tells about D. Ann's ‘before and after’ lifestyle and the "Fluffy" Mormons who became a part of that story. D. Ann’s background as a standup comedian engages the reader in exploring the miracles which occurred during and following her conversion to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints both in the author’s life as well as the lives of family and friends.

How could a field trip to New York City with 11 teenagers instill a testimony in the adult teacher leading the group?

How could something as small as a wink or two simple words affect thousands of people including strangers in a foreign land?

So Many Miracles will make you laugh and cry, likely at the same time.

You need not be a Mormon - or even want to ever be one - to enjoy this short read.
My Review:
I think it's fun to hear about someone's conversion story and this one was full of humor and miracles. I enjoyed reading the stories and experiences that related to the author's discovery of a religion that changed her life. She really had to make some big life changes and did so with so much faith. The way things came about in all of these instances really show the reader that the Lord's hand is in all things. I came away with a feeling of hope. Ms. Nadeau has a strong testimony and isn't afraid to share it with the world.
