About the Author

After a brief and ill-fated start as a daily newspaper reporter, Tom C. Petersen spent decades in the corporate world as a utility communications professional. He is a husband, father, and son, with two master’s degrees and a deep and bitter jealousy of anyone who has a Ph.D. He has been a church elder, nonprofit board member, and homeowners’ association board president, which is just about the worst job in the entire world. He thinks a lot of serious and important things are very funny.

What (Admittedly Biased) People Are Saying:

“This book is kind of a cross between “The Office” television show and C.S. Lewis… if Lewis had sketchy theology. And didn’t write very well. And talked about himself a lot.” (The author’s co-worker, who preferred to be anonymous)

“Thank God It’s Monday(?)” is a witty and insightful read that will resonate with anyone who has ever grappled with the tension between their professional responsibilities and their spiritual convictions. Petersen’s blend of humor, honesty, and faith makes this book a valuable resource for anyone seeking to navigate the complexities of the modern workplace with integrity and a sense of humor. (David Hancock, Founder and CEO of Morgan James Publishing, and a very kind person)

“I wrote this book to remind myself to laugh. It’s meant to help me process the times when work and faith seem in conflict. It also reminds me that Jesus has saved us from the dire prospect of only focusing on work and worldly things. When you have a heavenly perspective, it is much easier to laugh at the world of work.” (Author Tom C. Petersen)
