It’s my personal mission. And it’s my full-time ministry focus as well.

So how did I get here?

My Vocation

I went to college to learn to count, earned a CPA certificate, then did some time (a five-year sentence) with a global accounting firm. Next I left for something more adventuresome.

This led to a five year career as a full time stock trader. Along the way my walk took me deep into scripture, looking for my invisible God and seeking answers to my questions.

After a roller coaster trading career, followed by a seven-year season with an international ministry, I started a nonprofit organization called Acceptable Gift. This is where I write about things like Plastic Donuts and Divine Applause, which were published by Multnomah/Random House.

While Acceptable Gift continues to serve churches and ministries nation-wide, I now devote time helping families walk with God together. (Read more about this here.)

My Family

I’m a husband to Stephanie and father to Austin, Cade, Gunnar, and Autumn. When I’m not writing or speaking or dreaming or thinking, I can be found watching Andy Griffith reruns with my kids, conducting miniature golf clinics, taking family road trips, or maybe coaching a High School track or Cross Country team.

Jeff Anderson speaks and writes about walking with God, with an approach that combines scripture, story, and challenge. He’s the author of Plastic Donuts and Divine Applause (Multnomah/Random House) and Power Read The Bible.


I’ve enjoyed various speaking roles in a wide range of settings: churches, non-profit organizations, conferences and retreats.

Since 2012 I’ve helped churches structure sermon messages around financial giving using Plastic Donuts. Whether as a guest speaker to address church giving, or as a keynote speaker at donor events for non-profits, the topic of giving and generosity is of great interest.

More recently, my passion has been on the subject of family, faith transfer, and family Bible engagement.
