Book Cover

Matt has mastered the overlooked and underutilized skill of seeing parables in the everyday around us. Thoughts That Fell From a Taco Shell is full of youthful exuberance and honest self-reflection. Matt is fearlessly himself, and this book is a testament to that. And tacos.

A great book to grab on the way to coffee or the back porch… a series of thoughts and vignettes that offer new insights to ponder, and fresh ways to look at life and faith. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Delightfully, Matt’s ability to take the mundane happenings of life and turn them into life lessons is humorous, insightful and entertaining. A tumble on a bicycle, an accident at a restaurant, things that most people forget minutes after they occur become fodder for a mind searching for meaning in the ho-hum of the routine. Thoughts That Fell From a Taco Shell may not be as tasty as a crunch wrap supreme, but certainly more filling.

Thoughts That Fell From a Taco Shell, resounds with deep spiritual truth but is packaged in story and sarcasm, making it easy to unravel. Matt has a bright future in writing. His relatable, honest, thoughtful, and sometimes hilariously self-depricating tone made me feel right at home. This book is relevant and important for today’s generation.

When I read I really love vignettes, slice-of-life stories, humor as well as thoughts & ideas that come through the side door. I also love insight, honesty, hope, questions, the unexpected and approaches that are not heavy handed or conclusions that are not one-size-fits-all. If you are like that as well, then pick up Matt Ouellette’s “Thoughts That Fell From a Taco Shell: One guy’s attempt to impress God”. It is an easy, fun read that has a lot to say about life, faith and some of the corners we back ourselves into as we try to make it all work. I found it engaging as well as insightful. I also like the stand-alone chapters which fit well into my A.D.D. life.
