Brent, the coach’s son, is his father’s best player on the 12-year-old Little League baseball team. The team is playing for the State Championship. His team is ready. They expect to win. But outbursts of uncontrollable anger from players, their parents, coaches, and officials threaten Brent’s enthusiasm and concentration for the big game. Game Day comes, and Brent’s nerves and emotions are a wreck. Then some unexpected events during the Championship event–some humorous, some heart-warming– open his eyes to a score that really counts. It is a close game between two rival teams, with plenty of action and a chance for the winning team to be on national television. At the end of the fiercely fought game, Brent is excited–but over an entirely different score.
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
