I've been reading this book Don't Waste Your Life... hence
 the big black letters right above. hehee
I love John Piper, and this book is great!
I'm thankful I started reading this because it's really eye-opening!
So far it's made me joyful-er! ;D

When I told my dad I wanted to get this book, he went on Amazon, and he ended up buying 12 copies!
He just wanted to have some to give away,
and so I'm going to be giving one away... to YOU! hehee

But wait! That's not all!--(I just said that in the ShamWow guys voice! hehee)
If you want 2 more "entries" for this book, all you have to do is make a blog post on your blog about this  If you do make post about it on your blog, would you please leave a seprate comment one this post letting me know you did.

Here's a little quote from the book.

"Now we see that in creating us for his glory, God is creating us for our highest joy.
He is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him. … God created us to live with a single passion to joyfully display his supreme excellence in all the spheres of life.
The wasted life is the life without this passion."

Yay! I'm excited!! =D
