If you have been on Twitter recently, you know that #AddaWordRuinaMovie began trending over the weekend. Today, “Eat with Joy” author Rachel Marie Stone, a missionary who lives in Malawi, got #AddaWordRuinaChristianBook to start trending, and it’s currently in the top five United States trends.

  1. Ok, “When bad-ass things happen to good people” was a wonderful word add, loved it, but technically that should be under #AddaWordRuinaJewishBook. Harold Kushner is a rabbi. He wrote that for a general audience, but it is not a specifically Christian book.

    Now I need to go start AddaWordRuinaJewishBook . . . if I had twitter on my phone.
