Overview


In a time when all the news seems bad, people are searching for a little dose of hope. For those in the thick of troubling times, Ronda Rich offers heaping helpings of comfort and sound advice in There's A Better Day A-Comin'. Here Rich shares stories of courage, spunk, and perseverance that she has either witnessed or (as in the case of Paula Deen and race car champion Dale Earnhardt), learned in conversation with them as they personally told their stories of dark times that turned brighter than their wildest imaginations. Rich knows that there is incredible power in stories, especially those that are true and have strong, wise lessons to impart. Incorporating her Southern storytelling style and vernacular, There's A Better Day A-Comin' is a collection of Rich's feel-good true stories that folks can use for inspiration and encouragement.

"Ronda Rich can tell you much about the heart of the Southern woman, and why her faith is such a buoyant and living force in her life." — Anne Rivers Siddons

"There's A Better Day A-Comin' is the kind of book that comes along exactly when you need it, and Ronda Rich is exactly the storyteller to remind us that yes, there is an upside to the downside. Beautiful and inspiring, Ronda Rich tells the truth by telling a story. Imbued with her southern hilarity, this story collection will be read over and over like a prescription that states "read as needed".

I read this book at night and could literally not put it down. My intention was to read one chapter a night - but after 6 days, I finished it with a combination of gratitude and a lump in my throat that it had ended. It is so rare to find a book that is so lyrically written and has such amazing true, inspiring and hopeful stories that resonate. This isn't like Chicken Soup for the Soul - this is real gritty - get to the heart - told with humor that will make you grin ear to ear - revelations about living life and doing it well. Many of the stories are peppered with anecdotes from the author's parents - and will make you wonder what kernels of wisdom you have planted in your own childrens' hearts. This will give you many stories to share and uplift someone and also will bury itself in your own heart for times you need some hope. I had also read the author's previous book - What Southern Women Know About Faith - and was crazy about that one too. I am planning to give to everyone on my gift list and treasure my own copy that I now have passed on to my husband. It will fill you with a profound sense of joy at what the heart can do when it believes!
