"If I Ignore It, It Will Go Away (And Other Lies I Told Myself)"
By Marsha Marks
(Waterbrook Press; ISBN 1-57856-698-3)

Humor writer and flight attendant Marsha Marks (101 Amazing Things About God and 101 Simple Lessons for Life) is back with a light-hearted look at the lies we tell ourselves in If I Ignore It, It Will Go Away (And Other Lies I Thought Were True) (Waterbrook Press). Marks is both poignant and hilarious as she shares her own personal mistakes, faux pas and slightly off kilter views on life by exposing lies, like “It’s a good idea to hide the mail from my husband so he won’t see the bills”; “I can’t go to church because of all the hypocrites”; “My child will never do that”; and my favorite, “My husband will love my advice”, in which she shares the story of how she walked onto the court during a basketball game her husband was coaching because she thought he needed her help (really!). The book is a compilation of short essays and vignettes, and is a delightful read that will help you uncover the lies you really believe."
