I'm Not Crazy; I'm a Christian
Tales From the Frontline
About the Book
Kat Merrigan debunks and demystifies preconceived notions about what being a Christian is all about in this book. It poses questions such as: • If you’ve ever doubted God has a sense of humor, have you considered a penguin or a duck-billed platypus? • How do you determine who you really are? • Does being a Christian mean giving up everything? Her goal is to help bring clarity to what it means to follow the Lord and encourage readers to do some investigating of their own. Written from the viewpoint of someone who has been a dedicated Christian for more than twenty-five years, it is an honest, sometimes raw and emotional, but always sincere and hopeful exploration. There are many humorous stories and anecdotes throughout as the author takes the reader along on her journey. Kat also celebrates those that have made a huge difference in her life, such as her sister-in-law, who stood by her side for more than thirty years. She was the one who demonstrated a consistent devotion and dedication to faith, which challenged the author to follow in her footsteps. Faith is a serious commitment and shouldn’t be taken lightly, but it can also be where you find peace, joy, and even hope. All of those things should leave you with a smile on your face!

Her most recent project was Kat and Andee Far From Normal, a hope-filled, humorous podcast that she started with a close friend as a reaction to all the changes of 2020. Kat realizes that life is challenging which is why she decided a long time ago to not take herself too seriously. She is a firm believer in finding humor at all times, especially when it seems in short supply. Comedy with a side of sarcastic wit is her favorite dish. When one of her nephews was little he proudly labeled her the “funny channel.” What sustains Kat through the hard times is her faith. For the past twenty-six years, she has been a dedicated Christian. Her greatest desire is that her gifts of writing and humor will be a blessing and help inspire others.
