My Pink Champagne Life

by Meredith Shafer


My Pink Champagne Life is an autobiographical work by Meredith Shafer who tries to celebrate all the big and little events that shape her life.  The story touches on her first marriage and divorce, but focuses mainly on her marriage to Mr. Wonderful and on her blended multi-cultural family.  I rarely read a book twice, but I probably will read this book again.  It sparkles with wit and offers wisdom based in real experiences and a love of God.

Shafer pulls no punches about her life as she describes, often with tongue in cheek, what life is like in the (Mother) Hood—from the creativeness of her kids to the craziness of trying to juggle being a military wife, mother of four, public speaker, author, and lawyer who works from home directing a foundation.

With superlative turn of phrase, she injects humor into the telling of the messiness of everyday  life and how God has carried her through.  Shafer shares how God has molded her character through the good times and the bad.  I wish this book had been around when I was a young mother.  It will be an encouragement to women who want to be their best for God, who want to come to God without their Sunday mask on, ready to trust God to bring about changes in their lives.

Shafer has written another book which should hit the shelves on November 15, 2016. It is entitled Mad Cow: a PTSD Love Story.  If you don’t want to wait until then, you can connect with the author on her website to buy it directly.

    Do you follow her blog too? She hasn’t posted a lot lately, as she was working on another book, but she’s quite a lady. I didn’t know her next book was about her husbands PTSD. She’s been through quite a bit.

    Yes, I do follow her blog and got a little worried about her this summer as she used to post a lot. I contacted her and found that her book and summer with the kids was occupying a lot of her time. Also she is focusing more now on Facebook (2 pages), a webpage, and Twitter (which I don’t do;-). I either “met” you in the blogging world through her or vice versa and think so highly of both of you.
