After finishing Barbara Brown Taylor’s Leaving Church– more thoughts on this wonderful book later- I picked up Mindy Kaling’s Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (Reading Kaling is my way of grieving the departure of my favorite T.V. show, “The Office.”) Kaling begins her tome to humor for the sake of it, by listing all of the titles she almost gave her book. Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? could have been Sometimes You Just Have to Put on Lip Gloss and Pretend to be Psyched or Harry Potter Secret Book #8.
Well, I’ve decided to take a page out of Kaling’s book. Here are my alternate titles for Grace Sticks:
Because Faith Is Too Important to Be Taken Seriously
Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs (The Sequel)
Did I Really Just Say That?
How I Met James Bond in an Airplane (you really will have to read the book if you want to know!)
“Twilight” for Morning Lovers
The Young and The Restless
I Shouldn’t Be Alive (inspired by one of my favorite T.V. documentary shows that features hair-raising true stories of people who almost die from shark attacks, black mamba bites and shipwrecks)
The Book That You Haven’t Been Waiting For But Still Have to Buy (Or Else I’ll Come Find You)
Your Best Life…Never Got Any Worse (Move on over, Joel Osteen.)
A Wrinkle in Faith
Marcus Mumford, I Love You
The Purpose-Driven Life on Steroids (Rick Warren and I would’ve teamed up to write it.)
Are We Having Fun Yet?
Faith for Bad Hair Days
This Would Never Happen in Church
