Twenty hilarious true stories about anxiety, sinning, and sainting. Crazy Little Catholic: “For God needed me to convert pagans and nurse icky lepers in far-off lands.” Amazing Technicolor Dream Boys: “I didn’t have the slightest idea how to seduce Joseph. And Sister Bridget was no help at all with my characterization.” Virjeanity: “I felt it’d be wrong to use my parents’ phone in the commission of a mortal sin.” Death of a Saint: "For the next five Halloweens, I dressed up as my patron saint, Joan of Arc. The perfect costume for a repentant Halloween slut."
After finding Jesus at a suburban megachurch, young Jamie Wright trades in the easy life on the cul-de-sac for the green fields of Costa Rica. There, along with her husband, kids, and the family cat, she intends to serve God and make converts. But she soon loses faith and falls into a funk of cynicism and despair. Fortunately, Knives the cat is there, looking on with just enough disinterest to make her laugh...and dare her to try another way.
That other way turns out to be telling the truth. She launches a renegade blog, Jamie the Very Worst Missionary, which against all odds soon wins a large and passionate following around the world. Slowly, she begins to see that being a "bad" missionary-awkward, doubtful, skeptical-can mean that you're just the kind of person someone else might be willing to hear...and that loving others is just as much about changing yourself as it is about converting them.
