"Carleen Brice's Orange Mint and Honey, a new novel about real mama drama, will have you hooked from page one. Taking on the fabled mother-daughter bond, the Denver author confidently strides onto terrain many lesser writers have tripped over--with winning results." ~ Essence magazine
"Souvenir is an unforgettable story, a searing yet redemptive drama that illuminates the possibility of second chances, the naive choices of youth, the tensions within families, and the transforming power of love." ~Random House
Through the ages fathers have tried to get their kids to eat things on their plate by saying, "Go ahead. It'll put hair on your chest."
I'm no different, so the other night I tell my two boys, "Eat your steak. It'll put hair on your chest."
The five-year-old chimes in, "Like you Dad?"
"Oooh, gross," said the seven-year-old as he pushed his plate away.

A minister was completing a temperance sermon.
With great emphasis he said,"If I had all
the beer in the world, I'd take it and pour
it into the river."
With even greater emphasis he said, "And if I
had all the wine in the world, I'd take it and
pour it into the river."
And then finally, shaking his fist in the air,
he said, "And if I had all the whiskey in the
world, I'd take it and pour itinto the river."
Sermon complete, he sat down.
The song leader stood very cautiously and
announced with a smile, nearly laughing,
"For our closing song, let us sing Hymn #365,
"Shall We Gather at the River."
Meet y'all at the river.
