Taste and See Book Review

Posted by Leah 0 Comments of Appreciation
The book opens to speak on hospitality and friendships being grown. How just a simple invitation, open door can be an opportunity that blesses you more than you realize. Especially when you may be grumbling on the inside. You leave satiated in belly and heart. God is intentional in each visit - each gathering. He uses these times to uncover a deep need and satiate a deep hunger. Where God could meet us and fill our hearts. God isn’t waiting for one particular season in the distant future to yield fruitfulness in our lives. He’s working throughout every season and every harvesting cycle. I enjoyed trying the different recipes within the book as well. Jesus tells his disciples and us today: We are agents of preserving. God has placed us in this culture, in this time, in this moment, in this slice of history, to preserve the ways, the teachings, the life, the power, the presence of Christ. This book made me feel like I wanted to have friends and others over so that we could connect, talk, eat together, build friendships with one another.

Book Review

I must say when I saw this it drew me in and with the description, I was definitely hooked. I heard a lot of Charlie Daniel's music growing up in my house. When I saw his book I knew it was something I had to give to our family. I did just that in giving the book to my Dad for Christmas. I also found a bit from his book about our attitude. I will share that excerpt from the book. "I know, of course, things will happen that are beyond our control, but so much of our lives are within our own ability to affect. What we do with our God-given talent, how we face the problems we are confronted with, and how we choose to view each new day is up to us. Is it just another twenty-four-hour period? Or is it another opportunity, another chance to move forward--a reason to rejoice?" I really liked this because we can sulk in what's going on or we can choose to change the attitude and move forward and enjoy the day and our lives. I think of the God-given talents that I have, some like what I do and others have discouragement that they always give me about what I do. They see what's wrong with what I do, they see the waste of time according to them. I will say this is a great treasure to have and a great book to give as a gift.

Overcomer by Dr David Jeremiah book review

Posted by Leah 0 Comments of Appreciation
I must say that this has been a great book to review. The opinions I will give are my own. A point that was brought out was about getting quiet before the Lord. How many times have you sat down to spend time with the Lord and have the music playing maybe the TV is on or just noise around you? I have and the time isn’t as quality time as it can be. When I get quiet and I begin then it’s as though the Lord adds His own way of keeping us focused that we think of or maybe hear music and continue to be focused. There were so many other things that jumped at me. When he spoke about David and Goliath. You really saw the sides of each of them. Goliath was more of size, shout, and sight. David was more of conviction, confidence and courage. You can see immediately between the two which you’d want to be. I would rather the heart of David, heart of conviction to keep me focused on the Lord, heart of confidence that I can do as the Lord has called me to do. The courage to not doubt, but to remain in Him and focused on what He has called me to do. 

Thanks for stopping by,

Let the fun roll...Book Review : Simple Joys by Candace Payne

Posted by Leah 0 Comments of Appreciation

Hi Everyone!! I just want to take a quick moment of your time with this book review. I received Simple Joys by Candace Payne. I was not familiar with her, then when I looked up "Chewbacca Mom" and the video that I saw with it oh my goodness my sides split. I was laughing out loud over the video. I dug into the book after watching the video and was very blessed with what I read and also appreciated the thought-provoking questions that Candace put there with journalling space so that we could respond to them was great. I also want to ask have you ever struggled with discontent? Have you been overwhelmed and struggled with being happy? I know at times I have been overwhelmed and struggled with putting that smile on so that no one around me knew I was overwhelmed or struggling. When I change the perspective and find the simple joys, the time of overcoming something that seemed maybe impossible or that I wouldn't. I think of how I felt when I did. Being able to smile, face the next day with a smile, face the days with laughter just really changes your perspective. After reading Candace's book it reminded me again to keep looking for the joy, the simple joy in things around me. I would recommend this book as a gift or one to add to your own personal library.

Grace & Peace,
