We’ve all heard the expression, “If you look at it from the right angle…” Usually, it depends on the situation that we’re in. If you look at it this way, it’s not so bad. Or, if you look at it from this angle, it’s worst than what we thought.
What if everything we go through we’ve been viewing through the wrong angle? The angle of human understanding and finite wisdom. So when the situation gets bad, we say, “See, if it wasn’t for that, this wouldn’t have happened.” Lets take a step back and wonder, “Am I viewing this event the right way?”
The perspective of our lives should be from God’s perspective, not ours. Yet, oftentimes, when various things happens, we tend to view it from the wrong angle.
On this episode of the Write Stuff, we’ll be chatting with author Sherry Chamberlee, author of the 4 week women’s devotional “Right Angles” as we discuss this topic about perspective.

ABOUT THE BOOK
This 4-week devotional for women offers a Bible study on maintaining those proper perspectives that line up with God’s Word.
Oftentimes in life, our biggest problem comes from the angle we’re looking at things. When we straighten out the perspectives, in our own minds, we might just see the solution readily available. That’s why our perspective should always be guided by the Bible. God’s Holy Word is the only straight angle that will keep us in the proper perspective.
We all need to periodically check ourselves to see if we’re still on that right perspective.
That’s what this book is about – a check on the angle.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Sherry grew up in various cities around northern and central California. This gave her all sorts of stories that sat and festered in her brain, waiting to be let loose. She eventually went to college in Wisconsin, where she met her equally frenetic husband, Rich. They have six (yes, count them) children, two dogs and a cat, and currently reside in a madhouse in the southern California area. As a family, they enjoy being active in their local church. Sherry spends her time writing when not caring for Granny, the kids, the dogs, the cat and any number of strays in the neighborhood.
