I love cookbooks and have quite a collection so over the years I have seem my fair share of good and bad ones. This one is a must have! One of my favorite things to do in the summer is go to the farmers market and I usually just buy what looks fresh and catches my eye. Sometimes once I come home I wonder now what am I going to do with this item? This cookbook solves that issue. The pictures are amazingly crisp and sharp and it has everything into neat categories. One of my favorite parts is that the author includes local farms throughout the south that you can visit as well as their contact information and a short bio on each place. The items this cookbook suggests using are real foods with no junk ingredients so if you are trying to eat more whole foods this book accomplishes that goal. The directions are simple and most recipies are enough to feed a family or entertain with. On my next trip to the market this will be in my bag for sure!I I recieved this book for free from booksneeze.com as a blogger to review. This review is my own opinion.
I received this book for free from Thomas Nelson Publishing in exchange for a review. When I sat down to read this book I certainly had a set of opinions about people living on welfare and in poverty. After reading this book my eyes were opened to experiences, facts and perspectives of someone who had been there firsthand and pulled herself up and out of the hole she had dug herself into. The book details the life of a woman from a poor but hardworking family who created a self-inflicted life of pain to include drug use, provicativeness, and a dependency on welfare. After four years of being dependant on the system she hears a preacher say “God is your source, not the government!” That comment began a thought process that would later change her life. After removing her name from the welfare list she takes an entry-level job and begins to develop professional skills to help her future. She has many ups and downs but moves onto found a company by the name of Center for Urban Renewal and Education. The book really challenged my thinking as to why people remain on welfare for generations and to what we as a society can do to break the cycle of poverty. It was a great thought-provoking read that I highly recommend!
This book was an amazing read. I laughed, cried, pondered, and felt many waves of emotions while traveling on the journey with Ron and Denver. It was an amazing story of friendship as two men from extremely different backrounds become the best of friends and even refer to each other as family in the end. Ron and Dever were totally transformed into men who loved the Lord and both learned to be comfortable in places they would not expect to be accepted.From the ghettos to galas Denver preached his love and devotion of Miss Debbie and how she had truely changed his life for the better and the lives of many more. She just would not take no for an answer and had no fear of who these people were or their backrounds. She fought till the end and her work on earth was done but her unrelenting will to fight hard in everything she did is something we all could learn from. I can’t wait to read what difference do it make by the same authors. I am sure it will be as amazing as this book.
This is the reveiw that my 13 yr old daughter gave the book. The Katie Meier book I have just read was fantastic!It contains a lot of good infromation and I learned quite a bit. It had so much information about things that not every girl knows about. It has three main parts: Mind, Body, and Soul, and then under those chapters are smaller parts. Some of my favorite parts were; Going Online and the Digital You, Beauty, Fashion, Guys-What’s Up with Them, Family, Friends, Religion, and Who You’ll Chose to Be. I really enjoyed these chapters because they had some straight-forword facts. Such as in Going Online and the Digital You had facts about MySpace, Facebook, Texting, Sexting and stuff like that. It explains how you shouldn’t post or say certain things on social websites. It also explained how texting can be really fun, but how one person can turn a normal conversation into something that you never meant to get into. Or vice-versa. The chapter that some girls may enjoy is Sex and Sexuality. Especially if their parents are not very open with them. Or some girls may just enjoy learning about stuff that they didn’t know about.All-in-all this book was a wonderful read! I would recomend it to every girl in the “Tween” stage.
I recieved the dvd Life and Miracles from [...]. My daughter who is 3 enjoyed the movie very much as we watched it together. The colors were very bright and engaging. It was a good way to show children the many miracles of Jesus. I liked the fact that we already have several other Read and Share products so it was a familiar format for her. I am excited to purchase the Christmas and Easter versions for her.
