My Thoughts on this book!

Spices for a Christian book? Knowing that Yvonne wrote this book I knew it would be good, but I didn’t know what to expect with the spices tied into her Biblical writings. I found out that I was in for a treat! I used this book for a devotional, reading a few chapters each night and I was blessed with each chapter I read. In each chapter of From Spice to Eternity Yvonne gives us a spice and its meaning and purpose, then follows by a devotion tying this spice into our spiritual lives, then a recipe to use the spice she talks about.
One of my favorites is Cinnamon; because this is a spice I love and use a lot. Cinnamon is a healing spice and is credited to helping blood pressure and cholesterol. In her devotion for this spice, the author ties this healing spice to a healing story using scripture about the healing power of God. A few other spices she uses is cloves, vanilla, allspice, mace, mustard, nutmeg, and many more.
I really like Yvonne’s style of writing because it is easy to read and understand, and make a wonderful devotion to read each day. In addition to the devotion, you will find lots of information about each of the forty two spices in this book as well as their uses in recipes as well as for our health. And to top it off, there are many healthy, mouth-watering recipes to try for yourself.
I highly recommend this spice and devotional book for your personal library. It is a resource that you will use over and over! Grab a copy and check it out. You will not be disappointed!
