Shirley, you can do it!

What do you get when you combine a mother, a wife, and a friend, with a helping of humor, a smidgen of self-help, and a dash of dead-on wisdom? You get Shirley, a woman just like you: looking for answers, trying to stretch the 24-hour day a little bit longer, and constantly seeking to better herself, even when her "self" is just fine as it is. Now, in this hilarious, home-hitting new series, you can follow Shirley through the adventure that is daily life-- and you just might learn a few things about yourself along the way...

With three kids, a husband, a business, and a never-ending pile of dirty dishes, Shirley rarely if ever feels adequate.

So it makes perfect sense to dial the number she sees on an infomercial, 1-900-VALDATE. That should do the trick. And to Shirley's surprise, it does. But in some very unexpected ways...

About the author (2000)

Toni Sorenson Brown is a wife and mother of five kids. In addition to writing the Shirley books, she owns her own portrait studio where she specializes in family and children's portraiture. An orphan who grew up in foster homes and on the street, Toni believes that humor and hope are the keys to survival, and her Shirley books reflect this philosophy. She and her family live in the heart of Utah's Wasatch Mountains.
