And, Yes, The Dress Still Fits (Sort of)

January 17, 2016

It's coming out in March and I couldn't be happier about it. Here's what SUNY Press has to say about PREACHING IN MY YES DRESS:


"A Lutheran pastor and a regular contributor to the Albany Times Union, Jo Page highlights, in her delightful new memoir, a series of childhood misfortunes and adult choices that led her in and out of the church. After more than twenty years in the ecclesiastical trenches, Page explores how she continued to preach weekly words of hope she wasn't sure she even believed in Preaching in My Yes Dress.

Tom Perrotta, author of The Leftovers, says, "Preaching in My Yes Dress lives up to its wonderful title. Jo Page's memoir is a thoughtful, wide-ranging, and unusually frank chronicle of her spiritual journey. Anyone interested in Christianity, the daily realities of pastoral work, or the challenges of living an ethical life will find this book illuminating and inspiring."Preaching in My Yes Dress will be available in March. Pre-order your copy today!"
