For Contest # 1...

1. The totally awesome book, "Venti Jesus Please" by Greg Stier. I love this book. I read it while I was at summer camp.

The back cover reads:

"All Christians are just plain hypocrites!" As I spewed out these words with more venom than I had originally intended, both Jen and Nick looked around at me. It was the headline of the coffee-stained New York Times that had caught my attention, and I flung the newspaper across the coffee table toward Nick...just to get a rise out of him. Like a Vegas Blackjack dealer's card throw, the paper slid across the table and landed right in front of him. Who knew that what started as a smart remark would launch us into a thought-provoking spiritual conversation? If you've ever wondereda bout spiritual things, this conversation between three high school friends may open your mind to some new possibilities. Grab a latte and listen in.

2. "Every Teenager's Little Black Book on How to get Along With Your Parents" by Blaine Bartel.

The back cover reads:


1. God gave you parents

2. you need to get along

3. your parents need you

4. bartel - the oneighty® guy, knows teens. is a parents. knows what's up.

Here are the prizes for Contest # 2...
1. Bethany Hamilton 90-Day Devotional, "Rise Above." By Bethany Hamilton with Doris Rikkers (a bit beat up around the ages, but otherwise in great shape).

The back cover reads:

It only took a split second to change everything for 13-year-old Bethany Hamilton. But Bethany's courage, character, and faith in God became stronger after she lost her arm to a shark. In this book of devotions, Bethany shares with young girls her courage and enthusiasm for God, inspiring them to face life head-on and be strong in their faith.

2. Two sheets (26 stickers) of totally cute, God-centered stickers! I even cut a small piece of paper, stuck on the 'iPray' one, and put it inside my see-through iPod case for a new and cute look! These are great!
