Life never turns out as we expected. But connecting honestly with the one we're really in can bring all sorts of consolation ...I Thought There Would Be Cake explores - with the author's characteristic empathy and humour - some of the everyday issues we face, in order to help us think about how we might live life a little better.
With each chapter drawing on personal experience and featuring an original illustration, the topics include:



  • taking responsibility (the need to accept failure)

  • your crap/my crap (the boundaries between caring and taking on others' worries and stresses) 

  • what sort of special? (what it means to be unique in a sea of unique people) 

  • comparisons (the destructiveness of comparing ourselves to other people) 

  • affirmation (the healthy and unhealthy need) 

  • inner conflict (believing we can do anything/nothing at all) 

  • numbers (the power of social media) 

  • never chosen (finding our value in who we are in each situation, not in the people around us) 

  • major crisis in a minor moment (keeping things in proportion) 

  • regret (spending less time evaluating ourselves and more time just being ourselves)


Candid but powerfully reassuring, the book reminds us that we are each made - fearfully and wonderfully - in the image of God, our true source of confidence, comfort and joy.
