"Being peculiar is not about horns," begins bestselling author Mary Ellen Edmunds. In this humorous but thought-provoking book, she explores what really makes "a peculiar people" and what sets us apart as a distinct and different from the rest of the world. "Others surely do notice things about us" she states, "so what would it be like if we could be depended upon to live what we believe every inch an minute of our lives?" Using scriptures and personal experiences to help explain our uniqueness, Mary Ellen presents a positive and upbeat approach to making little changes that will help us strive to become better when we're already pretty good.

This book (cd) was a total joy to listen to. It reinforced all I have ever learned about who I am and how special I am to Heavenly Father. I love that Mary Ellen was the one who read this book to me. I am a great fan of Mary Ellen's from my attendance to Time Out for Women. She makes me laugh and she makes me cry, and she laughs and cries right along with me. She's just great!!!
A Wonderful Read!
