Author Tom C. Petersen
April 15, 2024

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa, April 15, 2024 /Standard Newswire/ -- Asserting that the workplace is often a challenging place to live out our faith, Tom C. Petersen's new book "Thank God It's Monday(?)" offers readers a humorous study on how to do that.

In this collection of humorous essays, Petersen shares his experiences from years in the office trenches. He chronicles his triumphs – but mostly his failures – of living his Christian values amidst the challenges of office life. Whether it's dealing with difficult coworkers, navigating office politics, or finding opportunities to share one's faith, Petersen offers readers practical advice with a lighthearted touch.

Notable chapters include:

  • "The Amazing Identity-Changing Employment" (Chapter 1)
  • "What to Do if You Have a Boss" (Chapter 6)
  • "When It's Time to Go" (Chapter 23)

"Thank God It's Monday(?)" is about finding humor in the everyday challenges of work and maintaining a sense of God's presence amidst the ups and downs of work life. Through laughter and reflection, Petersen reminds readers to embrace their faith journey at work with humility and grace, knowing that they are not alone in their struggles.

The book is written to encourage Christians at work, celebrating that they undoubtedly perform better than the author did.
