Pam: Encouragement to find your smile. To rise above, to see we’re all a bunch of messy folks in need of redemption. Especially me. So laugh, the load won’t necessarily go away. But you’ll find your inner peace to rise above, to know there’s hope for tomorrow.
Katrina: Well that definitely sounds like a message many folks need to hear these days. How did you think of the title for this book and where do you find the inspiration for your columns?
Pam: Funny stories. Being a Newspaper gal. People often told me — be careful what you do around Pam, she’ll write about you in her column. I didn’t use anyone for the book per se, but opted to focus on my own journey of laughing, loving and finding my brave badge to speak up for God. I see stories in just about every chapter of my day; it’s about looking and being nosey. Yes, I’m nosey.
Katrina: At least you’re honest. Why do you think humor is so important in life?
Pam: A cheerful heart is good medicine, and we are to taste and see that the Lord is good. We live in hard times, and we can find our smile, but sometimes it gets tucked away. I want to give you permission to get it out and give me a .
Katrina: You’re right. We are living in hard times. None of us are exempt and many of us get so wrapped up in the day-to-day grind that we lose sight of the laughter that’s been hidden for so long. Thank you for reminding us to let it out sometimes. What do you hope readers will walk away with after reading this book?
Pam: I pray the reader walks away with a chuckle, and with an uplifting sense of knowing God is most likely very entertained with us. He’s the ultimate voice of encouragement, and I want others to know that’s my source of joy, my source of hope –He’s the place I go when life gets hard, or heavy. He gave me an identical twin, the mirror of myself; but I truly want my life to mirror His. And since He knows I’ll stumble along the way, my blond moments and chaos are stepping stones to God’s grace. If He loves me, He’ll love anybody!
Katrina: I know that feeling. I say all the time, “If God can use a loser like me, He can use anybody!” Tell our readers where they can get a copy of “See You In The Funny Papers”.
