As of this month, Loving the Stranger Blog has hit 50 posts! There’s a whole lot more practical encouragement and tips for welcomers coming in 2018, but first, here are the most popular posts of 2017, revisited:
1. Grieving with Africans: How to Support Non-Westerners Through Loss
2. This is What Culture Shock Feels Like (+ How to Help)
3. The Surprisingly Simple Conversation Starter for Deeper Crosscultural Friendships
4. The Joy of Cooking for Immigrants
5. 5 Reasons Crosscultural Friendships Are Worth Cultivating
Also, if you’ve been wanting to buy my book but haven’t gotten around to it, now is the time! It’s never been on sale for this cheap before–only $6.49 (50% off normal price)!
If you’ve already bought the book, but think it might be helpful to some of your friends, consider buying a copy and sending it to them! May the message of the book be used to encourage many towards deeper connection with immigrants in 2018.
