It's been over twelve years since we personally witnessed Audrey experience a dramatic breakthrough when she completely received the beautiful forgiveness of Jesus. It was tangible and real. Since that moment when she "threw off" the cloak of shame, she hasn't looked back. We prayed for her that night in her parents' living room, and since then we have seen her walk in an authority of joy and freedom that is contagious and miraculous. You can't help but smile and receive practical strategy as you follow the journey to happiness that Audrey has walked and laid out here in this book. Read every page of Wake Up Smiling. It will help you see how much you were created for new levels of breakthrough!

Wake Up Smiling is a book every person should read. The reason this book is so powerful is because I know this about Audrey Meisner. She is completely authentic. Her words emerge from a life of applying God's truth. There's nothing theoretical in her teaching. She is completely transparent. For the benefit of others, she never holds back. She is a true Jesus girl who bases her every belief in the life, teaching, death, burial, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus.

Audrey Meisner is by nature a happy, joyful person. But that's not what qualifies her to write this book. Audrey has walked through deep valleys of grief, heartbreak, and impossible circumstances, only to emerge with profound passion and a firmer grasp of God's great love for her and for others (like you). This is not a surfacey book about the benefits of smiling (although, Audrey definitely points out the benefits of smiling). This is an honest look at what hinders our joy and why it matters. Do you believe it's possible to embrace life with a heart of expectancy and faith? Do you want to wake up smiling because you're someone Jesus loves and sings over? Read this book. It's like a cup of cool water: good for the heart and good for the soul.
