Don’t waste your awkwardness.
The most difficult subjects in our lives are also the ones that we find most uncomfortable to talk about: divorce, body image, sexuality, pornography, or depression. Our awkward silence reveals the gap that exists between what we are and what we know we should be. But God loves those awkward moments, Sammy Rhodes argues, because they are precisely where we find connection with God and one another.
In This Is Awkward, Rhodes talks directly, honestly, hilariously about the most painfully uncomfortable subjects in our lives. In chapters like “Parents Are a Gift (You Can’t Return Them)” and “The Porn in My Side,” he boldly goes where most of us fear to tread, revealing that we can be liberated by the embrace of a God who knows the most shameful things about us and loves us all the same. Because nothing is too awkward for God.

This Is Awkward = This Is Great
This Is Awkward is great book that includes a most excellent combination of jokes, pop culture references and Jesus. Sammy is authentic despite discussing topics that are uncomfortable to discuss. I appreciated his vulnerability. His vulnerability helped me give myself permission to be vulnerable as well, which I believe is what he set out to do with his book. It is great. Buy it!
