So, today I'm gonna share a little book spotlight with you all about a book that I am really really excited about. I'm calling it the book of the month (although it will probably be the book of the year for me :P).

Sidenote: I took this picture!
The book I'll be talking about today is called This Changes Everything: How the Gospel Transforms the Teen Years by Jaquelle Crowe. Here's from the back of the book:

My name is Jaquelle, and I'm a teenager.

I like football movies, sushi, and dark chocolate. But the biggest, most crucial, most significant thing about me is that my life's task is to follow Jesus. He is the One who changed my life.

That's what this book is about.

It's for teenagers eager to reject the status quo and low standards our culture sets for us. It's for those of us who don't want to spend the adolescent years slacking off, but rather standing out and digging deep into what Jesus says about following Him. This book will help you see how the truth about God changes everything - our relationships, our time, our sin, our habits, and more - freeing us to live joyful, obedient, and Christ-exalting lives, even while we're young.

Let me go ahead and tell you a little about the author.

Jaquelle Crowe is a young writer from Eastern Canada. She's a graduate of Thomas Edison State University and editor in chief of This Changes Everything: How the Gospel Transforms the Teen Years is her first book, which she wrote when she was eighteen. She's passionate about writing and speaking to her peers about redeeming their youth for the glory of God.

This Changes Everything just came out at the beginning of this month and the publishing company has already had to order a second printing!

If you'd like to order the book you can go here.

I've read the first two chapters of it and it's been fantastic so far!

So, how did you like this spotlight? Think I should do them more often?
