What is your favorite book genre? Would you be surprised if I said one of my favorites is “Christian Fiction?”
Let’s all get together for one big colossal groan.
Why read Christian Fiction? - it's an escape
It's the end of a day with stressful meetings, difficult personalities, and deadlines. You need to do it again tomorrow, but tonight you are exhausted so you pick up a Christian fiction book to shut out the world and help fall asleep.
Soon, you're not quite so tired and the day's stress is gone as you find yourself immersed in a simpler lifestyle and conversing with people who aren't creating scandals or screaming at each other. You can't put the book down until in the end, the guy gets the girl and they live happily ever after.
Well, maybe not if you are readingTed Dekker, a Christian author who is not all nice-y, nice-y or worried about living happily ever after in his stories. But a little Lauraine Snelling, Colleen Coble, or Dee Henderson might set the mood.
Lately, after reading a Christian Fiction story, it dawned on me, that I read Christian Fiction for the same reason as I can get up early just to take a bubble bath before work - in the shower that is.
Why use Shower Bubble Bath? - recharge your batteries
You're lying in bed, willing yourself to get out and get in the shower, but all you can do is think about what lies ahead - stressful meetings, difficult personalities and deadlines. You're not ready to do it again today. You want to run away but then you remember "Shower Bubble Bath." You can still ignore the world for a bit longer while getting ready for work.
Forget work! You're making bubbles! Lots and lots of bubbles and each bubble has given you a mental break and courage to meet the day.

Maybe, but we all have ways to de-stress and recharge. What is your "Shower Bubble Bath?"
