I've been thinking of you over the last couple of days, because I've just started reading your book. I'm up to the part about Spot the horse and the testicles in the fire (haven't quite read up to what you did after Fred ate them - ewwwww!)
Daniel, I'm going to love writing a review for your website. Your book is delightful. You've really hit the mark with the relational quality - it is just like listening to an old friend chatting around the kitchen table.
You've brought tears to my eyes in more than a few places and had me chuckling in others. It's a great mix.
There are so many Christian books out there now days, and some are very good and some are so-so. A lot of them are very put-downable. The "put-downable" ones usually start well, but finish poorly - or lose the punch halfway through. So it's times like this, when I'm reading a little gem of a "self-published" book that I don't want to put down, that I really think the whole publishing system is not quite firing on all cylinders.
I know PA isn't exactly "self-published" in the traditional sense, but in a lot of ways it is. Your book deserved more - but I hope and pray that it will get into the hands of people everywhere. As I said, it's delightful. Not too heavy, not too light. It's just right.

More Than Just a Pastor, My Hero
"Amen" is what Pastor Daniel Pann says every Sunday morning at Hillsdale Baptist Church. He's not just my pastor; he's my hero. Also he's had a book published, and he gives the best sermons!
First, Dr. Pann is my hero because he's caring. Being a pastor you have to be caring. You could talk to him about the most boring thing on Earth and he'll care. It could be a matter that he thinks is stupid and he'll care about it the whole time you're talking to him about it. It could be like a football problem or a sport problem.
Secondly, Mr. Pann is wise because he has a lot of knowledge at 48. Being a pastor gives you a lot of knowledge. Dan Pann can tackle any challenge and by thinking on his feet, he'll win it. Dan Pann gets a lot of his knowledge from reading the Bible.
Thirdly, Mr Pann makes me think. When he gives his sermon on Sunday, he leaves me with a thought. He's talked to me and not asked me a question and then later I'll wonder about what he said.
In conclusion, my pastor is my hero. Some may say that a pastor can't be a hero to you, but to me my pastor is my hero in more than three ways.

PASTOR OFFERS ENCOURAGEMENT IN NEW BOOK
He didn't aspire to become a pastor In fact, he was going to be an electrician. But God had other plans and 24 years later he's still in the ministry.
Pastor Daniel Pann, minister of the Hillsdale Baptist Church since 1993, has written a new book "A Pregnant Woman Beat Me," describing the "trials and tribulations and delights" encountered by pastors.
"The book chronicles the years spent in ministry, in all facets," Pann said.
He started the book two years ago after having already finished one and he has three others in the works.
"This one uses humor to show ministers are just as human as everyone else," he said.
Born in Hillsdale on Oct. 28, l956, to Tom and Kathy Pann, Daniel Pann was the middle child of seven. He spent some time growing up in North Adams, but his family moved to Arizona his freshman year in high school.
"We kicked around from town to town when I was growing up," Daniel Pann said. "Dad pastored several churches and it was nothing to come home and find out that we were moving again."
In his book, Pann outlines the various places and experiences encountered while growing up poor, though saying he would never trade any of those experiences as they shaped him into the person he is today.
Other chapters herald experiences once Pann chose to go into the ministry and tell stories meant to "encourage pastors and lay people alike to press on....and recall there are many sides to the ministry we often forget."
In the preface, Pann explains, this is encouragement for every pastor who has ever strapped it back on come Monday morning. Sunday was either a blessing or disaster. Some parishioners fell asleep, one threw up all over the place and another cussed you out before leaving.
Little old ladies needed a weekly hug, old men cut their fingernails during the semon, babies cried non-stop and toddlers ran wild up and down the aisles. Teenagers wrote notes to each othere on the backs of bulletins, the sanctuary reeked of stale air because someone forgot to open the windows....."
The book also shows a serious side of facing various medical challenges including numerous kidney stone attacks, a broken leg, hernias, a heart attack, a seperated shoulder and a removed appendix.
"Along with my heart condition, I was informed I am type II diabetic," he said in the book. "Other than that, I'm in pretty good shape for the shape I"m in."
Pann also shows perseverance through a rough time in building the new Baptist Church on West Bacon Street in Hillsdale a few years ago, telling of financial woes and spiritual hardships.
"Looking back, I am reminded that God is capable of taking care of His own, especially His ministers," Pann said. "He has certainly cared for me over the years."
The Hillsdale Baptist Church is in its third year at its new location and has a congregation "running around 300,and catching 120."
Pann and his wife, Cindy, have three adult children and two grandchildren who live locally, providing a family closness he cherishes. Before coming to Hillsdale, Pann ministered at Baptist churches in the Upper Peninsula and in Tucson, Ariz.
He is a graduate of Liberty University and Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary in Lynchburg, Va. and Andersonville Theological Seminary in Camilla, Ga.
He serves as a spiritual advisor for Hospice of Hillsdale County and includes "dealings with people and their time of need" in the book.
Longtime church member and deacon Doug Kinnett said Pann's long stint of service to the Baptist Church is a testament to his work as a pastor there and his service is "really appreciated."
"When he first came it was an affirmation that God wanted us to build a church," Kinnett said. "He had a Bible in his hand on Sunday and a hammer and saw the other six days of the week. He even constructed the oak pulpit in front of the sanctuary."
"I love being in Hillsdale," Pann said. "I guess you could say we're in love with our congregation."

Former Curtis Pastor Publishes Book Dr. Daniel E. Pann, formerly of Curtis, recently released his book, A Pregnant Woman Beat Me. This collection of stories chronicles 24-plus years in the ministry, ranging from the southwestern desert of Arizona to Michigan's Eastern Upper Peninsula.
Growing up in the area during the 60's, attending Taquamenon Area Schools and later pastoring Curtis Baptist Church, Pann is no stranger to the U.P. "I have family there, but spend as much time as possible trout fishing during the summer and fall under the guise of visiting," he admits.
Twenty four years in the pastorate has enabled him to minister to people from all walks of life. "Few people know the trial, tribulations and delights encountered by pastors," he says. "Much of what they do is confidential, and while they are often held in high regard, all are subject to the same temptations, failures and setbacks as everyone else."
Pastor Pann shares the human side of the ministry with a touch of warmth and humor. Chapters from his days in Curtis include, "I'm Going to Shoot Me a Preacher, Strange Things I Have Eaten and Crazy People."
Dr. Pann is a graduate of Liberty University, Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary and Andersonville Theological Seminary. Dan and his wife Cindy reside in southern Michigan along with their children and two grandchildren.
