How to Pick Up a Stripper: And Other Acts of Kindness

I initially picked up this book because of the great title. I had no expectations out of it, it literally just looked good. Turns out, it's actually a really awesome book. Normally, I can't stand evangelicals and bible thumpers that try to push their religion down your throat. This book made me realize that there is a proper way to spread the love of God, and that's through kindness. Straight kindness. Pastor Todd Stevens talks about all the things that his Friendship Church accomplishes by thiunking outside of the box. People don't want to be preached at, they react better to actions. Todd and his church make a point to randomly wash car shields, pass out free gas cards, help special needs children, give free food to strippers and soo much more! They hand out little cards that say something like (forgive me, I don't have the book next to me) " Spreading the love of God - No Strings attached." They aren't forcing people to come to church or guilting the community. They are doing good deeds because it's the right thing to do and people will react more positively to it. This is a must read for any Christian or do gooder. There are so many great ideas and positive stories. Seriesouly soo good!

I received this book for free from Book Look Bloggers in return for my honest, unbiased opinion.


  1. Okay, so my comment is not about this book. Sue me. (I’m independently wealthy, BTW.) I received your beautiful LibraryThing card. Thanks! What I enjoyed most was the Christmas Letter. Very interesting reading. I tried to find you on LibraryThing without any luck, so here I am. I hope you have a wonderfully Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

    1. @consuella Thanks so much for finding me!! I'm glad you enjoyed my Christmas card, I always have a blast putting them together. I was really excited that Library Thing put together that card swap. How fun! I hope you have a fantastic holiday season as well! Thanks again!
