Look at these wonderful pictures! (Also: We have contest winners!)


FacebookTwitterLinkedInPinterestPrintE-mail I‘ve spent the past week going through the entries to the Something Other than God release party contest, and, along with my esteemed contest review board (read: Joe, Hallie, and the occasional neighbor who wandered by when we were looking at entries while the kids played outside), we have chosen winners! Thank you all so… [Continue Reading]

What I’m trying to say is: MY BOOK COMES OUT ON TUESDAY!!!!

Something Other than God

FacebookTwitterLinkedInPinterestPrintE-mail I wrote the first chapter of the first draft of Something Other than God in the summer of 2008, so you can imagine how surreal it is to me to be able to tell you that the book will be released this coming Tuesday, April 29th. It’s not just a Word document that ruins… [Continue Reading]

Best day EVER

Something Other than God

FacebookTwitterLinkedInPinterestPrintE-mail When I went to bed last night, this day didn’t sound very promising. I had discovered a major issue with our ticket vendor just before I was going to shut my laptop and go to sleep, which is not what one wants to happen 36 hours before one is about to start selling tickets…. [Continue Reading]

This is not a pre-order announcement. Okay, it’s sort of a pre-order announcement.


FacebookTwitterLinkedInPinterestPrintE-mail I was going to wait until everything is in place to make the big announcement, but since folks have been asking about doing pre-orders for Christmas gifts, I am popping in to say: The hardcover version of my book is now available for pre-order!!!! Pre-order from: Ignatius Press | Amazon.com | Barnes and Noble… [Continue Reading]

Something Other than God

Something Other than God by Jennifer Fulwiler

FacebookTwitterLinkedInPinterestPrintE-mail C.S. Lewis, an atheist-to-Christian convert, once observed: “All that we call history…[is] the long, terrible story of man trying to find something other than God which will make him happy.” As I wrote my story, I realized that it was as much about searching for true happiness as it was about undergoing a religious… [Continue Reading]

Now…where were we?

FacebookTwitterLinkedInPinterestPrintE-mail I just wanted to pop in to mention briefly that OH MY GOSH I SENT THE BOOK OFF TO IGNATIUS ON MONDAY!!!!!!!!!!! Guess what: getting a book in final form when you have six young children, including a two-month-old baby who doesn’t sleep through the night, is not a particularly easy endeavor. Little life… [Continue Reading]

30-day mind shred

FacebookTwitterLinkedInPinterestPrintE-mail I have about 30 days to make a final round of edits before I turn the manuscript in to my publisher, which means that all four minutes of my free time each week will be going to that. Why am I telling you this? Because there is something about having a blog that makes you… [Continue Reading]

We have a publisher!

My bookshelf

FacebookTwitterLinkedInPinterestPrintE-mail One thousand eight hundred and twenty days ago, I started writing my book, a memoir about going from atheism to belief. After three complete, from-a-blank-page rewrites; countless feedback sessions from Joe and my agent and brilliant fellow writers, each of which left me wondering whether I should perhaps just give up on the written… [Continue Reading]

Some updates, and five amazing books to make you feel better about your crazy life


FacebookTwitterLinkedInPinterestPrintE-mail We’re home! The baby is doing very well, my health is great, and the kids are thrilled to have a baby in the house again. It’s been a little crazy though (by “a little” I mean “A LOT”). I’ve spent the past few days pondering whether it’s having six kids under nine or just… [Continue Reading]

An interview with a small, fuzzy woman who looks like me

FacebookTwitterLinkedInPinterestPrintE-mail I‘m only, oh, six weeks late on this, but I keep meaning to direct you to this webcam interview I did with blogger extraordinaire Brandon Vogt. It’s a 10-minute discussion in which we talked about evangelizing to nonbelievers, how to get traffic to your blog, how I find time to write, and the top… [Continue Reading]
