Livning in the Pink

Title: Living in the Pink

Imagine having a guardian watching your every moves and calling you out when you aren't living the life you should be living. Are you living in a God centered life or does your choices verge more on the pink edges of pure living? This book centers around Sister Pinky and her watch over her church family with the help of some clergy members. When she sees someone "living in the pink", she makes it her priority to step in and nudge them back to a Christ centered life, or at least she tries. This book is a series of short stories dealing with many areas of Christianity that we have all had to deal with at some point in our lives.
I wasn't sure about this book at first, who did Sister Pinky think she was telling everyone else how to live their lives, but the more the book opened up so did the struggles that even she was having. I really liked the study guide questions at the end of each story. While this book is marketed as fiction, there are some wonderful thought provoking issues dealt with. Everything from romance, jealousy, hypocrisy and even about lifestyle choices. This would make a great women's bible study book...a little laughter and probably a lot of tears. It really made me think about what being pure as snow really means!
I'd give this book 4 1/2 thumbs up!

The fine print: I was given a copy of this book to review by Netgalley. No other compensation was given and all opinions are mine alone!
