What Goes Wrong Can Make You Better
From "Chocolate Naked Ladies" to "Talking to the Dead," Joe Baroody's perspective on life and living is as refreshing as it is original. Dr. Baroody is a pastoral counselor and an ordained Baptist minister, and has served as chaplain, minister, and counselor at hospitals and medical centers in South Carolina. He has been in private counseling practice since 2001 and has published numerous articles, essays and poem in regional and national publications.
Chronicles of an Irreverent Reverend is a collection of short stories ranging from his childhood to his parenting years rushing his kids off to school to grandparenting and dancing with his 3 year old granddaughter. Dr. Baroody has a knack for finding "teachable moments" such as "it is a mistake to hold hands with a screaming woman in labor, especially if you are wearing a ring" and "silence trumps stupid questions."
The Irreverent Reverent will be in the store signing copies of his first book Chronicles of an Irreverent Reverent on Friday January 25th from 4:00 to 5:30.
