A true but tongue in cheek look at what it takes to survive a first (and subsequent) visits to a Spirit filled church service.
After years of attending quiet Catholic and Baptist church services, the author was left in shock at her first visit to a Spirit filled church. This is a small handbook to help others who may be visiting a Holy Ghost church for the first time.

A child of the 60’s, Marina Rojas grew up in a family that was more crazy than dysfunctional, and today survives as a testimony to love and laughter because of it.

Marina is retired from 28.5 years with the State of California Employment Development Department where she worked as a manager in unemployment insurance, and has written stories for, and worked as an editor for FaithWriters Magazine. A short story called Will I Have the Right Shoes? was published in the Fall 2004 Edition of the FaithWriters Christian book Learning for Life. Most recently, her FaithWriters story 'A-Running With Moses' took first place in her division of the weekly writing challenge. Marina also worked at her dream job, writing local interest stories for the Press Enterprise newspaper in Riverside, CA. She is now reliving her childhood and tumultuous teen years in her stories, and writing her very own great American novel while she awaits the birth of her fourth grandchild. Life is good!

I giggled while reading this. Its an adorable essay like 16 pages. Very cute.
As a member of a "spirit filled church" i'm no sure whether to laugh or to be offended. Hopefully the author meant this in a "kind" way so i will offer her the benefit of my doubt.
Some are more vigorous in their worship than others, but all are delightful to me. Some are much louder and more active than others. But they are like any other body of christians - they are all individual but are worshiping and learning about the Lord Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father and the Holy Spirit. I had to laugh at a lot of the observations of this author because they brought back memories. She does not seem to be making fun of folks who worship this way, to the contrary, she is simply preparing the un-prepared for the fun they can have if they wish to visit a Spirit filled house of worship. I very much enjoyed this short little book!
