Desiring God FREE Download! (And GIVEAWAY #4!)

I don’t know where I’ve been, but I’ve just found John Piper!  I had heard of him before, but finally clicked on a video of him about memorizing Scripture and now I am hooked!


Christianaudio.com has a free download every month, and for November, it is John Piper’s book, Desiring God.


You can click HERE for the link, and also, sign up for their free newsletter so you can be notified of the next free download!


I burned the first chapter to a CD and listened today in the van on a long trip…..oh, my!  So rich, so good!   I actually put the print book on my Christmas wish list!  


Here are a few gems (not verbatim, since I was driving–couldn’t take notes safely!  LOL!):


"God is most glorified in me when I am most satisfied in Him."


"Worship is not really worship unless God is treasured and enjoyed."   WOW!


I would encourage you to download this jewel and listen and soak it in!






And now, for my FOURTH giveaway!



I told you I’m having too much fun!



If you have been reading my blog for any length of time, you know I LOVE the book, "The Heart of the King" by Ron Auch.


It is a devotional on Psalm 119–but it isn’t "fluffy"–it is quite meaty!  I am on my second time through it (I bought mine just a little over a year ago).  It ministers to me so much!


It has a page per verse in Psalm 119–it’s about an 8X8 inch book.  You can check it out at Amazon.com HERE.


It is currently out of print, but when I e-mailed the author last summer, he said it would be reprinted.  I certainly hope so, as it’s a wonderful book!


So this copy will be a used copy–I am still waiting on it to arrive, or I would tell you its condition!  I tried to get one in the best condition possible.


It is a wonderful book, and it will be one you treasure, I’m sure!  



To enter this giveaway:

1. Will this be a gift to yourself?  Or someone else?  You don’t have to say who, in case they read this blog, too! 



2. My new friend at Give All Diligence has started to memorize Psalm 119!   Maybe you feel that’s a bit daunting to start–but would you commit to memorize one section of Psalm 119?  A section is only 8 verses long.   If you choose to take that challenge, you get an entry for it, plus if you check in and let me know how you’re doing, you can get another entry–1 per day for this one.


3. Share a book or blog that has really deepened your love for the Lord.  1 entry per book or blog mentioned!  Mention as many as you like, but no doubles!  (Don’t send me the same list each day–LOL!)


4. What will you do today to fall in love with Him more, the Heavenly Bridegroom and Lover of your soul?  And if you have something different for each day, you may share and get an entry per day for this one!


5. Tell 3 friends, post on a forum or facebook, tweet on Twitter, blog about it—and come back and let me know!  (Leave a link if you posted on your blog or on a forum!)  You can do this one as much as you like!


This time I will run the giveaway through November 29, Sunday night at midnight–to allow a day off for Thanksgiving!   I will announce the winner Monday morning, November 30.


Be sure to check back in so if you’re the winner, so you can get in touch with me to receive your "jewel" of a book!


And please–



take time to fall in love with Him today!

    My very favorite blog that has drawn me closer to the Saviour is Ann Voskamp's blog "A Holy Experience".

    Today, to draw closer to Jesus, I'm going to memorize a verse or two of one of my favorite songs "Jesus, Lover of my Soul". I love the first verse where it says "Let me to Thy bosom fly". Such tenderness and comfort is conveyed in those words!

    How surprised I was to see you linked to my blog. How wonderful. Thanks.

    This will be a gift to myself. Would love to learn more about what I am desiring to memorize.

    I am committed to memorizing a portion of Psalm 119. Do I get an entry for each portion I am committed to memorizing? :) Ha! I am working on the first portion now. I typed it and printed it and laminated it. I have it hanging right above my kitchen sink.

    Just to let you know that I posted it on my facebook account and on my blog "Striving to Give all Diligence.

    I have been trying to think what I can do deepen my love for the Lord. And I believe he is telling me to stay OFF the internet for today and spend the extra time with my family and with Him. So that is what I will do today. The internet is one area that can very quickly become a driving force. Quickly get this done so that I can go online again, etc and then soo hard to turn it off again.

    This book will be a gift to myself, as I love Psalm 119.

    I plan to memorize verses 145-52.

    Two blogs have especially encouraged my walk with the Lord –

    Holy Experience and I Take Joy.

    I especially thank Him today for a daughter attending church for the first time in over a year – she needs to repent and walk with Him.
