What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I have no doubt that each pet that shared their lives with me was God-guided into my life. It is perfect that dog is God spelled backward, it gives a dual meaning when I share the dog guided inspirational tales (tails) that taught me profound lessons in love, living in the moment, gratitude, and the power of forgiving and letting go.
I made a decision to apply the lessons learned while watching Cooper and Max interact on a day to day basis. The result was positive. I feel emulating them as taught me how to be a better person. It has taught me to be a better friend, coworker, sister, wife, and a pet owner. I decided to write this book to share my insights as well as provide a few photos to give you a smile in the process.

But outbursts of uncontrollable anger from players, their parents, coaches, and officials threaten Brent’s enthusiasm and concentration for the big game.

You know that thing when you’re in Walmart at noon before you discover you haven’t brushed your teeth? Sarah Parshall Perry gets that. She also gets weird things showing up in her bed, her daughter requesting war paint, and her son crawling into a giant blue sock on Christmas morning. Sometimes, she discovers the kids have locked each other in the dogs’ cages, but at least they’ve stopped getting into trouble for awhile.
According to Perry, “The hardest stuff is the quickest way to God.” And if the systematic destruction of her carefully planned life is any indication, she’s on the fast track to sainthood. A mother of three children, two of whom are on the autism spectrum, she has experienced plenty of ups and downs. But from the chaos of her “ordinary” life, she pulls truth packed with humor, poignancy, and a naked honesty that will help you realize messes make God visible.
“Brokenness is part of our humanity and Sarah Perry gets it. Sand in My Sandwich is her story of living with transparency, grace, humor, and hope. No matter your challenge today, you will find yourself in her story. This book is a must-read for every woman.”–Shannon Royce, president and CEO, ChosenFamilies.org
