My Review

She Laughs: Choosing Faith over Fear, by Carolanne Miljavac, is a humorous, yet thoughtful book full of wisdom and truth. This book overflows with witty encouragement for those who long to walk in joy, faith, and hope even in the midst of significant struggles. Through well-written, focused chapters, Ms. Miljavac explores how laughter is an essential component of a life well-lived.

With genuine authenticity and inspiring vulnerability, Ms. Miljavac shares her personal experiences and practical thoughts on the vital role that laughter plays in helping people to navigate some of life's most difficult struggles, events, and emotions. Strikingly funny and filled with unabashed grace, this book is refreshing, engaging, and very helpful.

She Laughs: Choosing Faith over Fear is honest and sincere. It is rooted in a love for the life-giving truth of God’s Word and the abundant joy that he makes available to all people. It is memorable, practical, and wholly uplifting. I gladly recommend it.

About the Author: Carolanne Miljavac

"Hey y'all! I am a southern-raised, Jesus-saved, barely sane author, speaker, and social media goofball. I'm married to such a lucky man, and mother to three sweet, loving, kind little girls who only whine EVERY now and then. I'm also super sarcastic. Poverty and abuse were tough to overcome, but it was the crushing loss of my seven-year-old niece to cancer that finally humbled me enough to listen to God when He spoke into my shattered heart, "Give it up." Without the chains of fear and insecurity, I followed my spirit's instruction to speak freely. That led to over 100 million video views, and nearly half a million social media followers. My story has been a true reflection of "beauty for ashes". I pray my writing leaves you laughing, crying, rejoicing, and encouraged. I hope to pull heartstrings while tapping funny bones with transparency and vulnerability. Grief taught me gratitude, pain gave me purpose, and loss revealed true love. With faith, I found audacity, and my mission is to give you the guts to be you too." --Biography from Carolanne Miljavac's author page on
