The Don’t Waste Your Life website/blog from Desiring God has recently been given an uplift. It is targeted to younger people (in their 20s) but would appeal to other people too. The inspiration for the site has come from John Piper’s book of the same name. You can read this well received and challenging book free online at the Desiring God website.
A key part of the blog is the video podcasts, which are published on the website, YouTube and itunes. This includes interviews, and mini-sermons from John Piper. They are 1-3 minute videos that combine images and gospel in a way that magnifies Christ and motivates you to not waste your life. New episodes are posted every 1 or 2 weeks. Recently there was a three part interview with the band Mainstay, and you can see the first one below:
You can also join the facebook group which is very active if you are so inclined. It would be great if there were more blog posts on the website, but it seems to be more set up to support the distribution of the free videos. This is not a bad thing though and if you have a spare few minutes it is worth watching a couple, especially if you feel you are wasting your life…

i think you and your readers would really enjoy the new book Brown Like Coffee at brownlikecoffee.com
Thanks for the comment Charles,
That looks like an interesting book. Anything that points us closer to Jesus has got to be a good thing.
I absolutely love your blog and find many of your post’s to be precisely what I’m looking for. Do you offer guest writers to write content for you personally? I wouldn’t mind writing a post or elaborating on a number of the subjects you write in relation to here. Again, awesome site!
