Join travel blogger Angie Orth on a journey of self-discovery as she empowers readers to buck expectations, take leaps of faith, and trust that God’s plan is better than anything we think we want for our lives.

Angie Orth should have at least 2.5 kids by now-everyone else back home did. Despite a successful PR career in New York, Angie was failing at the role she was born to play: submissive wife and grandchild incubator. Without a photogenic family and Instagrammable spirituality, folks were starting to wonder if Jesus even liked her.

With her 30th birthday looming, she was at a crossroads. Should she hightail it home to find a man like a good girl or run the rat race in NYC and hope for the best?

Orth chose Plan C: escape! She quit her job, launched a travel blog, and booked a one-way ticket to the South Pacific while her Southern family gnashed their teeth in protest. But the timing couldn’t have been worse for a solo trip. She dodged tsunamis and earthquakes, revolutions, grabby men, and incessant DMs from her worrywart relatives in a journey spanning five continents. In the midst of global misadventures, Orth’s hilarious, vulnerable journey of faith and wanderlust shows that God is so much more creative than society’s expectations for women.

Buckle up for this sassy, relatable memoir about living life unscripted, yet still on mission. By the time readers turn the last page of Flirting with Disaster, they’ll feel empowered knowing God’s plan is better than anything we think we want-or are supposed to want-for our lives. And they’ll be ready to take on the world in their own way.
