    1. Barbara Johnson's SPLASHES OF JOY IN THE CESSPOOLS of life is worthy of its title. I can't believe I never actually read this book! As I have been studying and reading everything I can get my hands on about Joy, I realized that I already had a few books on my shelf; this book was one of them. When I opened it, I was pleasantly reminded that it had been a college graduation gift from my favorite high school English teacher, Mrs. Godwin. How sweet! Barbara reminds us that we are capable of joy eve [...]


    2. Meh! Got this off the free shelf at the library and was looking forward to a fun read. There was humor at point but it felt like the author was blowing a lot of "hot air" about the challenges she has had in her life. Granted, she has had a lot of challenges and seems to have come through them well but wasn't something I found entertaining.Loved the quote on p. 149: "The secret of dealing successfully with a child is not to be its parent." How true!!I can relate to the porcupine love of children [...]


    3. As with all of Barbara's contributions, full of humour (some black, mostly white)but heartfelt and yet never appearing anywhere near corny Her natural gift of humour and creative optomism (as opposed to just positive thinking), addresses huge issues in life in a surprising and unpredictable way. Proud to say I "knew her when". When she came alongside me and my family in very significant times and before the books were written, she walked the talk! Sorely missed. Most other people of her ilk are [...]


    4. I don't have any kids but I have experienced heartaches of other sorts and found joy and comfort in Johnson's books and still get a lot out of them. I enjoyed this one, especially the last couple chapers. LOVED the story of the young man named Greg. Mrs. Johnson truly went to the trenches to dig people out. INCREDIBLE WOMAN!! I am sorry to hear of her death at age 79--very recently, but I am so happy her family chooses to continue her ministry to help others.


    5. What can you say about all of Barbara Johnsons books??? Well, she's just too darn funny for wordsputs a smile on your face every time!!And yes indeedChristians DO have an incredible sense of humor and Barbara leads the way with great clarity and encourages each of us to 'lighten up', trust the Lord and try to find the sunny side of even our darkest problems. You WILL smiled laugh!


    6. I enjoy reading Barbara Johnson books. She takes daily stresses and struggles and can find the humor or positive from it. I also liked the focus of parents role after kids turn 18. We love them but we aren't responsible for them. We need to learn to let the kids go out into the world and make it on their own.


    7. well, i won the book this afternoon at the Bradford County Senior Center's Christmas party. man, the shit looks real tight




    8. Barbara Johnson has had many terrible life experiences and she has managed to turn to God to lift her up. What courage and I loved the humor.


    9. This book was recommended after I lost my husband to cancer, have tried to read this book for years, will red parts of it over again, very good, spirit lifting and funny.



    10. Finding humour in tough situations is an uplifting way of looking at life. I love this ladlies way of working through tough times.
