For as long as he can remember, Pat Jobe, has thought he was something special. While he acknowledges such thinking is dangerous and can lead to narcissism, he is so grateful to all the folks who have been nice to him. This is his fifth published book, although two of the others were co-authored. He has worked for churches, newspapers, pizza places, historical outdoor dramas and one place that recycled oil absorbent mats. In his 2008 book, "Falling In Love With Everything," he made the radical claim that he is even in love with the numbers on the sides of mailboxes. He still makes that claim. He is the minister of The Greenville Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Greenville, S.C. and loves his job.
