Christian humorist and speaker Donna Petty writes about the benefits of humor when dealing with life’s events in her new book, “Destination Laughter: Are We There Yet?” (published by WestBow Press).

Petty says she uses a combination of humor and inspiration to help her readers realize the healing power of laughter, embrace the ordinary as the extraordinary, recognize that blessings are sometimes disguised as blunders, increase their desire to communicate with God on a regular basis, discover where the source of true joy is located and enhance their awareness of God’s presence in life’s little things.

An excerpt from “Destination Laughter”:

“Adam didn’t have a mama. And I am pretty sure he never sent Eve to Lowe’s to pick up parts for his chain saw. I have tried to put myself in their shoes. What would I have done if Satan had tempted me with a piece of fruit? I’m not sure, but I think he would have had to come up with something a little more enticing than a piece of fruit. I don’t think I would have given up Paradise for fruit. On the other hand, if that had been a Keebler elf up in that tree with a box of chocolate chip cookies, we probably would have been kicked out of the garden even sooner.”
