Three Questions.. Free Book? How do people change? Want to start a bloggy book club?

Want to join my 30-day Shred? Want to win a free book?.. keep reading! As you can probably guess, I am somewhat addicted to the blogging world. I check my bloglines at least once a day to catch up on all my favorite blogs. One theme I have seen in most of the blogs I read is CHANGE. These changes are usually focused on physical changes (i.e. doing the Jillian Michaels - 30 Day Shred or the Spring Cleaning Party. I help lead a small group for the High Schoolers in Justin's youth group. I was preparing for the lesson and it really hit me... The Lord has so much work to do in my life... man do I need to change.

Inspired by Jillian Michaels - 30 Day Shred, I thought it would fun to do a 30 Day Shred on my blog. Only not the physical exercise 30 Day Shred (although I need that too), a spiritual "soul-changing" shred. A type of shred that will affect every area of our lives.

A SHRED as described in Hebrews 12:1 - "let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us."

Also, I am notorious for starting a book and not finishing it. Ask my husband. He is amazing.. he reads about a book a week. So as part of this 30-day Shred, I was wondering if you would like to be a part of a little bloggy book club?

I started this book (several years ago) and it is wonderful. The name of the book is How People Change by Timothy Lane and Paul Tripp. I am dying to finish it. So I thought this will be a wonderful companion to our 30-day Shred.

Want in? Just post a comment with your thoughts. Let me know if you want to be apart of the book club, the 30-day Shred, or both. The 30-day Shred will be posted every Tuesday and we will do the book club every Monday. Of course I will still do my Recipe Wednesday along my Freebie Friday and of course, post encouragement along the way.

Need a little motivation??... GIVEAWAY.. Everyone who post a comment will be entered to win Paul Tripp's book "How People Change". This giveaway will only be open until Friday, May 22 @ 10am.

Happy Monday!

Hi Nicole, I love you blog! I would absolutely be up for a book club. I have recently been looking for a good book club to join. Just tell me what book and when and I'm in!


You can definitely count me in. Really sounds good! And a good way to shed AND connect!
