Wow! What a great time I had reading Groovy Chicks Road Trip to Peace with Laurie Copeland and Dena Dyer. I was afraid that the book would prove to be a tad lame because of the funny title, but I was pleasantly surprised. I found it packed with personal stories by some great--or should I say “groovy?”--writers: Nancy C. Anderson, Tonya Ruiz, Lilly Allison, Tracy Rasmussen, Susan Myers, Joanne Brokaw, Heather Enright, Shae Cook, Kathy Carlton Willis, Sandra Felton, Kay Flowers, Martha Bolton, Allison Bottke, Ellie Kay and many more.
The stories in this book are personal accounts of how the women found peace with God, peace with others, and peace with themselves. They are a wonderful potpourri of funny, tear-jerking, and heart-touching stories.
At the end of each story the reader finds smile markers (quotations worth remembering); GPS’s God’s Positioning System (Bible verses); How’s Your Inner State? (thought-provoking study questions); Off Ramps (groovy places to visit across the USA); and Pit Stops (activities to entertain and to grow by).
I recommend this book to women who enjoy a good laugh while learning and growing. If you want to read true stories about how women journeyed to find peace in Jesus, this is a book you should not miss. – Elece Hollis, Christian Book Previews.com
Just what is a Groovy Chick? She aspires to be at peace with God, others and herself. She is real, honest, growing, open to new ideas and opportunities, energetic and excited about life—and she's on a meaningful journey with Jesus!
Laurie Copeland and Dena Dyer (in the persons of hip chicks, Pepper and Starshine) combine the best of both worlds: touching stories with laugh-so-hard-you-snort stories. The late '60s and early '70s road trip theme is woven throughout, with sidebars and extras such as "Pepper's Pit Stops" (road-trip advice, recipes and humorous anecdotes), "Starshine's Smile Markers" (inspiring quotes), "What's Your Inner State?" (thought-provoking questions and journaling prompts) and "Lost? Try GPS—God's Positioning System!" (Scriptures).
