In The Ugly Couch, author and pastor Tony Ziolko gives us a transparent and candid look into his own life with humor and sarcasm filled stories as he strives to point us to live our lives more in line with Jesus. With each chapter, Ziolko shares his own stories, lessons and perspectives as he has been relentlessly refined and pursued by God. This book should be fun and easy to read but should also challenge you in your faith and how you love others and yourself. At the same time, Ziolko hopes that this book would also be an encouragement to you in the fact that he is just as crazy as you may feel sometimes! The hope is that these stories would challenge, encourage and empower you to grow in your faith and help you strive to love more like Jesus everyday. And hopefully we can identify the ugly couches in our own lives and learn when to throw them away.

About the Author
On top of maintaining his high profile of "nobody" he is also a husband, father and a pastor currently serving as the associate pastor of a church in Kansas. Lord willing, they won't fire him after reading his book.
He loves to write and talk about himself, hence the book he wrote that includes mostly stories of his own life. Maybe he's selfish and arrogant. Okay, he probably is. Enter God's grace. But then again, aren't we all selfish and arrogant in some form?
He would tell you all about his ministry experience and the different sizes and levels of churches he's either served in or been on staff at, but he's not because let's be honest...the size of the church means nothing.
He loves coffee and deviled eggs. He can kind of play music, is a pro at listening to it and is terrible at anything athletic.
But more than anything, Tony loves Jesus. His desire is to wake up everyday and try to love people like Jesus just a little better then he did the day before.
