Inspired by a broken heart and a wicked hangover, sorority girl Stephanie May Wilson throws in the towel on the life she's been living and packs her bags for a pilgrimage across three continents — determined to find her way again.
Exploding preconceived notions that Christianity is for grandmas and girls with ugly shoes, The Lipstick Gospel is the story of how one girl found God in heartbreak, the Sistine Chapel, and the perfect cappuccino.

I am so thankful Stephanie wrote this book. It is both fun to read and provides a comforting source of wisdom, like an older sister who has made mistakes and learned how to work through them in becoming a true Christian. After reading, I felt like we could be best friends."
In sharing her own story, Stephanie shows us a glimpse of who God is... not distant at all, but rather a God of details and beauty and adventure. Her story is encouraging and thrilling. As you read God's love story in her life, you feel Him welcoming you to experience the same."
I read this book cover-to-cover in one day! I couldn't put it down and I found myself laughing and crying with Stephanie as she told her story. So many times I found myself saying, "Yes, I know what you're talking about! I've experienced that too!" After finishing the book, I promptly bought two hard-cover copies to give to friends. This book is inspiring, encouraging, and easy to read. I HIGHLY recommend it!!!!"
I could almost feel a warm Spanish breeze on my skin and ancient cobblestones under my feet as I read and sipped and journeyed with Stephanie through her story. It's a story told authentically and full of whimsy; as life is, and can and should be! It's a book to read and re-read and to pass along to anyone looking to sit down with a cup of coffee across from someone who can both relate to them in the mess of life and remind them that there is beauty and adventure and hope in it."
