    I struggle with the tension between persevering in the mundane or pursuing exciting dreams. Is the grass greener because there's more crap?

  2. says

    I'm always looking for what's next and comparing my call to what God is calling other people to do. I want to be content and excited about what God is calling me to do now.

    Love your blog and am very curious to read a full book. Particularly curious how this fits with Rescuing Ambition…

    Both my wife and I struggle with being content where we are at this point. For her it's wanting to be done with school, for my it is wanting a new job. Discovered this book in Relevant magazine after praying about finding contentment here, right now.

  5. Katie says

    I am in a place in my life right now where I have to daily make the choice to be content with where God has me. That fast forward button is one that is always so tempting to want to push, but God has a purpose for me here, and I want to glorify Him in that. I would love a copy of The Greener Grass Conspiracy because I think it would help me see the goodness in contentment a little clearer.

  6. says

    Contentment is not only a place I need continual strengthening, along with my family, but the people I lead also need clear teaching – from what I've heard, this book is a solid work to aid in that process.

  7. says

    Currently facing big transition and I would benefit from some solid gospel-grounded reminders of the basis of my identity and the only "place" where I can find total satisfaction is in Jesus.

    I would love to have a copy of this book! The excerpts you've had in your blog are very challenging. My small group at church is going through James McDonald's book Lord Change My Attitude Before It's Too Late and The Greener Grass Conspiracy would be a great companion/expansion on the challenge to be content. Thanks so much for your ministry!!!

    I would love to received a copy because I feel that the book sounds very intriguing and is extremely relevant to today's culture!

    Hi! I would really love to get a copy because I don’t think it’s already available in this side of the world (Philippines). I’ve been reading your blog for some time now but I’ve never read a book by you. I just graduated from college and am now at the crossroads. I believe I will gain a lot of insights through this, if I be given a copy. Blessings!

  11. Ricky Moorhouse says

    Would love the book because I’ve found your blog posts a great encouragement/challenge and imagine the book would be more of the same

  12. warwickfuller says

    I would like a copy of this book, because I was pretty content until I saw you were giving it away. Now, just green eyes monsters about it.

  13. Andrew Gosden says

    Because I think that if only I could get a free copy of this book all my problems would be over.

  14. Jen says

    I struggle with contentment and envy. And I need to be reminded, daily, of Who is my true contentment. Thanks for the chance to win.

  15. Keri says

    I want a copy of this book because I really enjoy the author's writing and think he must have something worthwhile to say about contentment, because otherwise they wouldn't have published his book :)

  16. cfhall says

    I've already read this incredibly helpful book and would love to have another copy to pass along to more folks (even though I'll be loaning out my current copy constantly).

  17. Rick says

    Contentment is a mighty struggle for the Christian and I am interested in some contemporary teaching on the subject.

  18. Karla Evans says

    As a homeschool mom of 5, encouragement in the area of contentment is always good! Plus I like the stuff Stephen writes!

  19. Christy says

    I would love to win this!!! I look forward to getting my Blazing Center e-mails every day. They are such a blessing! This is the perfect book for me at this time in my life, as I'm having a struggle with contentment. But God is so good I know He'll see me through!

  20. Sarah says

    I want to win a copy of this book because I enjoy reading your blog very much and love your style of writing.

  21. TammyK says

    I, too, would enjoy owning and reading a copy of this book. The excerpts are quite good. I've enjoyed the ones posted here in the blog. And thank you for this daily blog. Whenever I open my email and see "Blazing Center" in my list of contacts who sent me mail, I become excited to see how God will be speaking to me, comforting me, or giving me a gentle reminder of an issue upon which I need to work.

  22. Lauren C says

    I've finally stepped outside my homeschool/church bubble and started college… albeit Christian college. Now I'm struggling for the first time with big life decisions and the sometimes paradoxical issues of ambition and vocation. I also enjoy studying subjects like communications and consumer culture. I think "The Greener Grass Conspiracy" could be a great help and a fascinating read.

  23. spencer kate says

    I want this book because I seriously need help being content in my current season of life. And I’ve followed your Twitter feed for a couple years! if I don’t win it, I’ll buy it any way. ;)

  24. says

    I want to have Joy and Peace and Fulfillment in the my Life with Jesus as the main focus. Not to live by a checklist that I need certain things in life to be happy that was in the world that I will be become unfulfilled with. I know this book will help point me in the right direction and of course the Bible, (Daddy) Father God, and Holy Spirit will be the main source of this through the book.

  25. says

    Two things I really like in a book: truth and humor. Stephen has in his blogs and tweeting shown evidence of being able to offer both. I would love the chance to indulge in larger doses as having book would make available to me.

    And I heard a rumors Brad Towers wrote the intro…

  26. Robin Sutphen says

    I feel like this is one of the deepest struggles of my heart. Would love to read this book!

  27. Alexander M. Jordan says

    I'd like to get a hard copy of this book for my wife to read, I already have an electronic copy. I'm hoping we'll be able to read and discuss together.

  28. Jj Nattaree says

    It happens to me all the time! Like, as simple as ordering lunch. Others' plates always looks more tasty!

  29. Caroline says

    Reading the book by Jeremaih Burroughs on Contentment. Wud love to read one in contemporary English:)
