The Ugly Couch

Learning When To Throw Things Away

So I wrote a book. It was a 5 year process in writing this thing and I'm very excited about the final product.

The book is a series of spiritual memoirs/essays. That means that each chapter is different and doesn't flow into the next but all tie into the same theme of the book. That makes for very easy reading.

This book should be fun and easy to read but should also challenge you in your faith and in how you love others and yourself. At the same time, this book should also be an encouragement to you, that I am just as crazy as you may feel sometimes!


Refinement. Redemption. Reconciliation.

In The Ugly Couch, author and pastor Tony Ziolko gives us a transparent and candid look into his own life with humor and sarcasm filled stories as he strives to point us to live our lives more in line with Jesus. With each chapter, Ziolko shares his own stories, lessons and perspectives as he has been relentlessly refined and pursued by God. This book should be fun and easy to read but should also challenge you in your faith and how you love others and yourself. At the same time, Ziolko hopes that this book would also be an encouragement to you in the fact that he is just as crazy as you may feel sometimes! The hope is that these stories would challenge, encourage and empower you to grow in your faith and help you strive to love more like Jesus everyday. And hopefully we can identify the ugly couches in our own lives and learn when to throw them away.
