(Rusty again.)

If you don’t read Jonathon Acuff’s website, Stuff Christians Like, you don’t know what you’re missing. “Stuff Christians Like is a blog about the funny things we Christians do. And what they just might reveal about our faith.” (from website). His comedic satire pokes holes in the irrelevant and sometimes harmful ideas we Christians hold so dearly to. The Stuff Christians Like book (with illustrations!) is now available for preorder from Amazon and will be released on April 1. Even the release date is funny.

If you preorder the book before this Saturday, the 30th, and comment/tweet on Mr. Acuff’s blog here, you’re entered in a drawing to win an Apple iPad, the not-even-released-yet portable computer ($499 value).

I’ve been reading the Stuff Christians Like blog for almost a year now, and I’m always surprised by how fresh, inventive and funny Mr. Acuff is; topics range from our obsession with “being relevant,” to dancing a Bible width apart or counting swear words in movies. He never hesitates to make fun of himself, and who doesn’t enjoy that? He works his day job as a copywriter and maintains a blog at the same time – something I think my mom can relate to. I can’t wait to get my copy.


(P.S. If you haven’t entered in our very own book giveaway, make sure you do before next Tuesday, February 2nd for your chance to win Melissa Faye Green’s There Is No Me Without You.)

Let me introduce myself. Russ and I are the parents of twelve children by birth and adoption, and sometimes more through foster care. I'm the creator of One Thankful Mom which has been as much of a gift to me as to my readers. In 2011 I became a TBRI® Pracitioner* and have lived and breathed connected parenting ever since. I'm deeply honored to be the co-author, together with the late Dr. Karyn Purvis, of The Connected Parent; it is her final written work. I love speaking at events for adoptive and foster parents. I'm also the co-founder of The Adoption Connection, a podcast and resource site for adoptive moms. I mentor and encourage adoptive moms so you can find courage and hope in your journeys of loving your children well.

    This is surreal…I love reading your mum's (note the spelling; I am Australian) blog though I don't comment much (this will be my second ever) . I'm also a fan of Stuff Christians Like…in fact that was how I found a bushel and a peck. Jon did his his shameless self-promotion Saturday thing and someone linked to a blog which linked to this one. I've been hooked ever since.

    I love this blog for the practical tips about loving and living with adopted children. My parents took on a permanent foster child at the start of 2009 and it has been quite an adjustment process. I read some of the 'Learning curve' blogs to my mum and it is very helpful to know we are not alone in struggling (though obviously your adoption adjustments are on a much larger scale than ours). Thanks muchly for the blog…it's a real blessing.
