Laughter laced, reality based, and just a little bit off the wall, this book is vintage Barbara Johnson - a gift of hilarity and hope from America's queen of encouragement.

Barbara Johnson has staked her life and her ministry on the healing power of a positive outlook. But here she zeroes directly in on the therapeutic benefit of a smile, a giggle, and a good, old-fashioned belly laugh. She insists that laughing in the face of adversity is not a form of denial, but a proven tool for managing stress, coping with pain, and maintaining hope. And to prove her point, she presents this funnybone-tickling, heart-touching laugh manual - packed with hard-earned wisdom...and custom designed to nudge you (giggling) down the road to positive living

If you're already a Barbara Johnson fan, you know the difference her down-to-earth-but-zany approach can make. You've learned to decorate hats with geraniums, splash joy in cesspools, and keep your gloomees packed in boxes - and you're more than ready for a new adventure. If you've never heard or read Barbara's books, you're in for a treat. Either way, this book will put a humor hammer in your hand - and a delighted smile on your face.
