Words of Wisdom: A BOOK GIVEAWAY

Happy Monday!
What a better way to start the week with the opportunity to win one of my very favorite things? 

I've teamed up with some of my favorite bloggers to bring you the WORDS OF WISDOM GIVEAWAY. 
Each of us will be giving a way a book that inspired us to be and do better. 

Friends, I'd like you to meet Lindsy, Ashley, Tiffany, and Wynne

I choose to give away a copy of 7 by Jen Hatmaker. 
I originally read it last spring and blogged about it here, and I liked it so much that I also just recently completed the new 7 Bible Study with a group of friends. In 7, Jen Hatmaker talks about our struggle with excess and takes us through an experiment she did to help cut back on the excess in seven different areas in her own life. 

Some of the lines that stuck out to me when I read it include: 

-Sometimes conviction is mistaken for guilt......
-"I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ."
-I spend more just on clothes in one year than the average Ethiopian family earns in almost five.
-I'm tired of calling the suffering "brothers and sisters" when I'd NEVER allow my biological siblings to suffer likewise.
-There is something so marvelous about women comfortable in their own skin.
-We get one shot at living to expand the kingdom, fighting for justice.
-We like our stuff. We need our things. Usually the things we think we need become the very things we need a break from.

Seriously, get excited. 
This book rocked my perspective, and I'm sure the others are the list are equally amazing. 


Once you enter to win here, head over to Wynne (The Circle Maker by Mark Batterson),Lindsy Radical by David Platt), Ashley (Irresistible Revolution by Shane Claiborne), and Tiffany (Dangerous Surrender by Kay Warren)  blogs to enter the giveaways!
