"Jeanette's writing can best be described as bi-polar: one minute you're laughing at her comical observations on life and the next reeling with conviction from her spiritual lessons. But no need for psychotropic drugs. Just enjoy her wit and wisdom in this delightful, habit-forming book!"
James N. Watkins, award-winning author and humorist
"Jeanette's book is witty, wise, wacky and wonderful--a humorous look at lessons learned by a pastor's wife in a small town in Mid-America. You will laugh and learn as you read this book!"
Carole Ledbetter, Regional Speaker Trainer, Stonecroft Ministries
"God is everywhere. He's present in the grand, curious and mundane moments of our lives -- in a disappointing bowl of noodles at a highly touted deli; at a wedding in which the organist is a no-show; at the gravesite of a father who died just when a young daughter needed him most. The vignettes in "Two Scoops of Grace with Chuckles on Top" represent snapshots of everyday life, and Jeanette Levellie reminds us the Lord's grace and power can be found in each story. Her deft writing gave me reasons to laugh, think, and be grateful. This book is good for the heart."
Mark Bennett, Columnist, Editorialist, and Features Writer, Terre Haute Tribune Star

One of the things I like about Jeanette Levellie is that she can laugh at herself. She's not perfect, and she's the first to admit it. This book is packed full of her real life adventures, the happy and silly, the grouchy, and the downright challenging moments we all can relate to. Her friendly and engaging stories illustrate the wonderful spiritual parallels that we all trip over each day. She encourages us to laugh (yes, at ourselves), learn, and to sometimes stretch out of our comfort zone.
I am fairly sure that there is something that most everyone can relate to within these pages. Jen shares vignettes of her life - her marriage, children, friends, neighbors, and yes, even a run in with the law. More importantly though, we get to experience Jen’s feelings, convictions, and faith in God, not in a preachy or condescending manner, but with friendly, soothing, and encouraging words.
Jen’s writing has flavor of the very best kind. It’s a combination of humor, grace, wisdom, and authenticity. Growing in faith Jen’s way, I think, is a lot more fun than just gritting our teeth and muddling through. I highly recommend treating yourself to looking at life with Two Scoops of Grace!
