{Jon Acuff} Bringing Dinner Back Week #7 ~ Dinner is a catapult.

We’re perfect parents. We never make mistakes and our kids always clean their rooms and get straight A’s in school and have bright white teeth that will never need braces. Not really, but that’s often the assumption I make about every other parent in the world. They know some trick, they have some special formula, they’re perfect parents and I’m just Jon.

{Jon Acuff} Bringing Dinner Back Week #6 ~ The thing about knives.

Week 6 of the dinner challenge is here! After a pitiful showing by me last week, I’m back with a better record. And a new story about something I learned in the kitchen. Something I never expected. Something that surprised me. I’m talking about knives.

What we learned: Smart lessons about sharp knives

I’d love to exaggerate and say that I’m one of those husbands who regularly cooks dinner. I’d like to pretend that sometimes I just surprise the whole family with a soufflé I baked. Or that for our anniversary I put together some sort of seven course meal by hand. Seasoned with love.

But the truth is, I am a rank amateur when it comes to cooking. I can barely scramble an egg. I am lost in the kitchen. In college I once ate jalapeno poppers for three months straight. Then, I met E-Mealz.

Bringing Dinner Back Week #4 ~ Dinner is a bucket.

That’s why dinner is never really just dinner. It’s you sitting down and putting time and attention and hopefully love into the bucket of everyone else at that table. It’s you saying, “You’re important to me. Life is busy and hectic sometimes, but you matter to me.” And when someone’s bucket is full, you know.

Jon Acuff is Bringing Dinner Back! Week #2: Better dinners through bigger stories.

Today marks the end of week two of the dinner challenge. (You can read about the first week “Dinner Unplugged” right here.) This week, we decided to mix it up a little and in addition to eating together, add a “family game” to the mix. My five-year-old will crush you at UNO given the chance so we tend to avoid that particular game. Here’s what we ended up doing instead.

Jon Acuff’s New Idea~ “I’m bringing dinner back.”

I mentioned in yesterday’s post that Jon Acuff, author of Stuff Christians Like, was about to launch a “wicked” crazy idea he has been tossing around in his brain-on-fire. Well… here it is! This is an excerpt from today’ post on his blog.

“Sometimes, I think our culture views having dinner together as a family as something that’s “old fashioned.” That might have worked for Norman Rockwell and Little House on the Prairie, but those butter churning, corn cobb pipe whittlin’ days are long behind us. The modern family is too busy to connect at the table like that anymore.” Jon Acuff

Where Gazelles & Stepping Babies Gather…

Dave Ramsey keeps preaching his message to the endless streams of struggling Americans. His “Baby Steps” are such a huge practical help to so many people toward financial freedom, and the art on display around the building illustrates the glee with which people shred their credit cards and assemble the pieces into collages for his entertainment. We love that E-Mealz is a perfect fit into any level of Dave’s program, and helps so many of his listeners toward their financial and family goals along the way. And we love that Dave gets E-Mealz… even though he doesn’t cook!
