The Forgotten Recipe by Amy Clipston

The Forgotten Recipe

by Amy Clipston

The forgotten recipe

Book Description

After losing her fiancé in a tragic accident, Veronica Fisher finds solace in the old recipes stored in her mother’s hope chest—and in a special visitor who comes to her bake stand to purchase her old-fashioned raspberry pies.

Veronica Fisher knows how lucky she is to be marrying her best friend. Seth Lapp is kind, hardworking, and handsome—but most importantly, he loves Veronica.

When an accident on the job steals Seth away from her, a heartbroken Veronica is certain she will never love—or be loved—again. Yet when she discovers a batch of forgotten recipes and opens a bake stand to sell her Mammi’s raspberry pies, Veronica picks up a regular customer who gives her heart pause.

Jason Huyard was with Seth when he lost his life—a memory that haunts him still. So when he seeks out the grieving fiancée to convey his condolences, the last thing he expects—or wants—is to fall in love. Nonetheless, Jason soon finds himself visiting Veronica’s bake stand every week . . . and it’s for more than the raspberry pies.

Now, as Veronica’s heart thaws, Jason can’t bring himself to tell her he was there when Seth died. Can he ever reveal where he was on the day her life derailed? Or will his secret rob them of the second chance at love they both want?

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

Veronica’s heart was broken when Seth was killed in an accident, and surely she could never find love again. But when Jason Huyard shows up at her roadside stand to buy pies for his mom, the attraction between them was very noticeable. But when she finds out Jason withheld the truth from her, she just couldn’t find it in herself to forgive him.

This is another amazing read by one of my favorite authors! You just can’t help but fall in love with Veronica and Jason and their families. And even though the most difficult times in Veronica’s life, it is clear that God is still working, even when it seems He is silent. Don’t miss this awesome read from Amy Clipston. It is sure to entertain you for many hours. I received this book from BookLook BLoggers to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

Murder Freshly Baked by Vannetta Chapman

Murder Freshly Baked

by Vannetta Chapman

murder freshly brewed

Book Description

When delicious baked goods become lethal, it’s time to find a killer.

Kindness is a virtue Meanness is a sin Better watch your bakery pies For poison I’ve slipped in

The Amish Artisan Village in Middlebury, Indiana, has been decorated with every color of balloon and flower for the Race for a Cure. As manager of the Village, Amber Bowman is thrilled to see the turnout-and relieved to have something to distract her from the “Poison Poet”-an individual who has been sending notes containing bad poetry to warn of poisoned baked goods.

Then Ryan Duvall crosses the finish line of the race-and falls down dead, murdered in broad daylight. But who did it? And why? The police suspect Preston Johnston, but Amber refuses to believe her employee could do such a thing.

Amber once again looks to her young Amish friend Hannah Troyer to help her find the killer-and to determine if it’s the same person leaving the cryptic poems and pies. Can they help the police before the Poison Poet strikes again? Both Amber and Hannah will need to draw on their faith as they fight to preserve the peaceful community they’ve built at the Amish Artisan Village.

She has published over one hundred articles in Christian family magazines, receiving over two dozen awards from Romance Writers of America chapter groups.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

Another murder in the Amish Artisan Village in Middlebury, Indiana, and the Poison Poet strikes again and again leaving pies with notes attached saying the pies are poisoned. And then the emails Amber is getting, that is clearly from the Poison Poet?  Ms. Chapman does it again with a murder, mystery/suspense that will keep you on the edge of your seats. And in an Amish community at that!

I felt so bad for Amber, the harassing emails were causing problems with her work and marriage, because the Poison Poet was determined that she wouldn’t tell anyone what was going on. But she had too many friends and family that loved her, and I was touched at the way the pulled together to help her. And another person that was helped was Preston. I really like Preston and the sweet relationship forming between Preston and Mocha, which you will need to read the book to find out about these two! And who in the world could have gunned Ryan Duvall down in broad daylight, just as he finished his race?
A lot of questions, and a lot going on in Murder Freshly Baked, and I just know you will enjoy it as much as I did!

NIV Real-Life Devotional Bible for Women   

Insights for Everyday Life, By Edited by Lysa TerKeurst

NIV Real Life BIble for Women

Book Description

You spilled coffee on your shirt before walking out the door. Ran late to your appointment. Snapped at your children, then regretted it all day. And spent an hour at the grocery store with no dinner on the table to show for your efforts. A typical day has come and gone. Life is full of obligations, emotions, and relationships. Some are life-giving, yet sometimes the weight and responsibility of everyday life is heavy to bear. As wives, mothers, friends, and daughters, we need to know we’re not alone. We long for someone who understands—someone to help us find perspective. When our days are long, and our nights are restless, it’s easy to think we should be able to handle things on our own. Or that no one struggles like we do. And that’s when we need a friend … to encourage us, to understand us, and help us become the woman God wants us to be. You’ll find that friend on the pages of the NIV Real-Life Devotional Bible for Women. Filled with insightful daily devotions written by Lysa TerKeurst and the women at Proverbs 31 Ministries, the devotions in this Bible will meet you right where you are, in the good days and in the hard days, in the car pool line or the doctor’s office. With God’s truth as the foundation, this Bible will help you maintain a peace-filled place of balance in spite of your life’s hectic pace. Features: The beauty and clarity of the New International Version (NIV) Bible, 366 daily devotions from the women at Proverbs 31 Ministries inspire you to live authentically as a woman of God, Author biographies, and a helpful subject Index.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BIBLE

This is the most beautiful Bible inside and out! I love the color, the cover, the inside, and all of the study tools and study notes that are added for us ladies! Lysa TerKeurst has always been a favorite teacher of mine, well at least she has for a number of years. And having a Bible edited by her is an honor! This is just the Bible for busy women today! Ms. TerKeurst  and the women at Proverbs 31 Ministries have given us 366 daily devotions with Scripture verses that go along with the devotions. There is one for each day of the year, and I am glad they are not numbered because you can really start any you want and go straight through the book.

I highly recommend this really awesome Bible in its beautiful color. You will be blessed each day by the talented writings of these Godly ladies. I was given this Bible by BookLook Bloggers to read and review. I was not expected or required to write a positive review. The review here is  my own opinion.

About the Editor

NIV Real Life BIble for Women

NIV Once-A-Day Bible for Women, Published by Zondervan

NIV Once-A-Day Bible for Women

Once a Day Bible for Women

Book Description

With this NIV Once-A-Day Bible for Women, you can read through the Bible in a year… or at your own pace. Now you can practice the spiritual discipline of daily Bible reading at your own pace. Want a reading plan that will take you through the Bible in a year? You got it—and check boxes too. Don’t want the guilt of falling behind in your daily reading? You won’t—each daily reading is numbered, not dated, allowing the flexibility you need as you strive to engage God’s Word every day. Looking for a Bible with insights about what you as a woman most need to hear? These are included as well in the intuitive, hopeful devotional thoughts located at the end of each daily reading. The NIV Once-A-Day Bible for Women organizes the clear, accessible New International Version Bible into 365 daily readings. Each day’s reading includes a portion of Scripture from the Old Testament, the New Testament, and a Psalm or a Proverb, followed by an encouraging devotional thought specifically written for women.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BIBLE

This is a really neat Bible! It has a daily Bible reading plan already mapped out for you. If you have been wanting to read through the Bible in a year, this would be an awesome way to do it. Each day it has verses/chapters already and each day’s reading includes a portion of Scripture from the Old Testament, the New Testament, and a Psalm or a Proverb. I like this because sometimes when we are reading parts of the Old Testament, we can loose sight of what we are reading, and with the Scriptures from the others parts of the Bible, this helps to stay focused on reading and what we are reading. This Pink Bible is especially for Women, and I enjoy having a pretty pink Bible to read and enjoy. Not that the color makes any difference, but its just nice. I encourage you to pick up a copy of this neat read-through-the-Bible to see what it is like for yourself!

NIV First-Century Study Bible Explore Scripture in Its Jewish and Early Christian Context

NIV First-Century Study Bible

Explore Scripture in Its Jewish and Early Christian Context

NIV First Centry Bible

 

The NIV First-Century Study Bible has a beautiful cover and is very attractive sitting on the shelves of stores everywhere! I thought this would be a really neat study Bible since it focuses exploring Scripture in its Jewish and early Christian context, but some of the notes, I’m just not sure about. There are a lot of interesting study tools in this Bible, the maps would be very helpful in studying the Early First-Centry, and I really enjoyed the pictures and drawings throughout. But I am just not sure this would be a Bible that I would use in my studies. But each person really needs to make the decision for themselves, so pick up a copy for yourself and see what you think!

 

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK!

I like the cover of this NIV Bible, but there are some notes that I don’t really feel they are accurate, or at least those involved in the note here doesn’t explain some of the Scripture very thorough. And apparently this is a newer NIV that the original NIV that came out years ago, and I am not sure I like this newer one. But I do like the pictures throughout the Bible and the nice maps are a good study aid. I say for each person who think this may be a Bible that you would like, to pick up a copy and see for yourself if this will work for you!

NIV God’s Word for Gardeners Bible Grow Your Faith While Growing Your Garden from Zondervan

NIV God’s Word for Gardeners Bible

Grow Your Faith While Growing Your Garden

Gardners Bible

 

ABOUT THIS BOOK

God will meet you personally in your garden… and in his. Throughout the Scriptures God has revealed spiritual truth in the language of growing things. This Bible will take you into a deeper relationship with God through the contemplation of soil and soul. The NIV God’s Word for Gardeners Bible will inspire you to seek God in a personal way through informative essays, devotional readings and prayers that explore the nature of the gardener’s work, the rewards of gardening, the influence of seasons and weather, and the joy of the harvest. In this Bible you will also find botanical-themed pages containing horticultural information for the prominent plants noted in Scripture and landscape-themed pages highlighting the main gardens and regions in which the events in the Bible took place. Draw near to the One whose garden is planted with delight—in you!

Features: * 260 daily devotions and 52 weekend readings arranged in weekly themes and placed near relevant passages in the text to explore the biblical metaphors of gardens and gardening * Beautiful, durable hardcover * Topical Index (for 52 weeks) * Special sections on the Garden of Eden, the garden of Gethsemane and Jesus the Vine

 

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

If you are a gardener, You will enjoy this new Bible from Zondervan. It is designed to help you follow your Bible reading and do your gardening together. One thing I found interesting is that there are 260 daily readings and 52 weekly readings and the passages in the Bible and the devotions go along with gardening. There is a special section about The Garden of Eden, as well as sections on Jesus’ Last Supper teaching on the vine, and The Book or Revelations and the urban Gardens. This was interesting to me because I haven’t thought about Gardens in the Bible, and even though I’ve read these verses, I really didn’t apply them to gardens. And the 52 week topical index focuses on garden interest.

I highly recommend this Bible to those who enjoy gardening. The front cover is beautiful and you will enjoy the green color used as captions throughout this Bible.

I hope you will give this Bible a try, and I hope you like it as much as I do. I received this Bible from BookLook Bloggers to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review.

BookLook Bloggers presents: NIV The Journey Bible Revealing God and How You Fit into His Plan from Zondervan

NIV The Journey Bible

Revealing God and How You Fit into His Plan

 

The Journey Bible

ABOUT THIS BIBLE

“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”—Jeremiah 29:13

The NIV Journey Bible is uniquely designed to help readers discover the practical aspects of Christianity and better understand God. Patterned after the Willow Creek model of ministry and intended for those in the investigative stage of their spiritual journey, The Journey’s exploratory approach addresses key questions inquisitive readers may have about the Bible and its relevance today. Notes and insights are woven throughout the complete NIV Bible text, drawing readers into the message and pointing the way to a relationship with Jesus. Icons trace six seeker themes throughout Scripture: “Discovering God,” “Addressing Questions,” “Strengthening Relationships,” “Reasons to Believe,” “Knowing Yourself,” and “Managing Resources.” Also included in The Journey are introductory articles that define key concepts involved in being a spiritually open person, book introductions, indexes, a dictionary/concordance, and a “Fire Alive” reading plan covering Genesis, Deuteronomy, John, Acts, and Romans.

The Journey can be used as an evangelism tool and makes a perfect gift for new believers and those looking for answers to life’s deepest questions. It is also a helpful guide for veteran Christians who want a refreshing perspective on the basics of their belief.

 

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BIBLE

When I first saw this Bible, I wasn’t sure if it was a good one or not, but the more I read through it, the more I like it. There are many study tools in this Bible that can be used to better you knowledge of the Bible. I want to list a few things that caught my eye when I opened this book. One is the unique introduction to each chapter, at the end of each chapter there is a real life, up to date in todays world story that can be applied to the Book of the Bible that you have read. The Five Alive reading plan is for 30 days. At first I wondered why a years reading plan wasn’t offered, but then I thought, a thirty day plan will be easier to stick too, and if those people who don’t read their Bibles can stay with the plan for 30 days, then they might try another 30 days. Of course I don’t really know if this is the reason for Five Alive and its meaning, but its my ideal anyway! The front of the Bible is a picture of a walk, giving a feeling of walking with Jesus through this Bible. I love the Apicture on the front, and the same picture is on the introduction page of the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. And I like the notes throughout this Bible that seven ‘explore’ themes. There are so many more things I can say about this Bible that I like, but you get the picture from what I have said already.

I hope you will give this Bible a try, and I hope you like it as much as I do. I received this Bible from BookLookBloggers to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BIBLE

There are so many things I like about this Easy Read Bible, but the main one is that I can read it easier because of the larger font! Thus, the Easy Read Bible gets it name! And the duo-tone black makes it beautiful too! This is not a study Bible so it does not have all of the study materials added to it, and I think this makes it easier to read through the Bible, because it is easy to get off track of reading chasing the study questions and facts. The ribbon marker keeps your place, and the words of Jesus are in read, remind me just what Jesus said as I read.

ABOUT THIS BOOK

A Royal Wedding Book

Regina Beswick was born to be a princess.

But she’s content to be a small-town girl, running a classic auto restoration shop, unaware a secret destiny awaits her. One that will leap from the pages of her grandmother’s hand-painted book of fairytales.

Tanner Burkhardt is the stoic Minister of Culture for the Grand Duchy of Hessenberg. When he is tasked to retrieve the long-lost princess, he must overcome his fear of failure in order to secure his nation’s future—and his own.

Yet lurking in the political shadows is a fierce opponent with sinister plans to abolish the throne forever. Overwhelmed with opposition, Regina must decide if she’s destined to restore old cars or an ancient nation. Together—with a little divine intervention—Regina and Tanner discover the truth of her heritage and the healing power of true love.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

The Deluxe Edition of this Bible Story set includes a hardcover storybook and two CD’s to go with the story. This book includes many of the favorite Bible stories we all love. Along with the story, included is an Adventure Discover section and a Words to Treasure section to help reinforce the story. There is also a hardcover case for the book and the CD’s to fit in.

I have let several children look at this book and they all loved it, and especially the animals on the cover. My niece calls it her Jungle Bible Story Book! She loves the jungle animals! This is a very nice set for any child. I love that the pictures help tell the story, because the kids were looking at the pictures and telling their own story. To me, this is so special that kids can do this with pictures.

I highly recommend this set for your child’s library. And it would make a wonderful Christmas gift!

Sweet Olive by Judy Christie

Sweet Olive

by Judy Christie 

_140_245_Book.951.cover[1]

Book Description

Camille Gardner came to small town Louisiana in the name of big business. But will the town of Samford change her before she can change it?

A talented businesswoman in the oil and gas business, Camille Gardner agrees to take on one last assignment for her uncle at the J&S Production Co. She would rather be anywhere than Samford, Louisiana, the small southern town where she once spent the worst month of her life. Most of all, she wants to move on to the art gallery job that is waiting for her in Denver.

To fulfill the obligation she feels to her uncle and get on with the life she dreams of, Camille needs to entice a group of rural landowners to sell their mineral rights—and allow use of their precious water for the drilling of natural gas. Instead, she finds herself drawn to the local folk art created by those same landowners, and attracted to Marsh Cameron, the attorney representing them.

Camille must decide whether family obligation—and her own plans for her future—are more important than the lives and tradition of this small community.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

This is a really good book to read when you want a nice, light read. In Sweet Olive, you will find is a really sweet Camille and her job with her uncle and her love for art. Camille finds herself back in a town she really didn’t want to visit again, but she is there none the less. The group of artist in the town is fighting with the oil companies to keep their town and its history going, instead of letting the oil companies drill all over. With Camille love of art, she is caught in the middle of the fight. I really like Camille. She is very professional but yet she shows another side of her personality as she deals with the fighting artist. I enjoyed her strength and courage, and of course the bit of romance added in made the book just that much more heartwarming. Judy Christie did a really good job of developing the characters to make the real and likable. I encourage you to check out Sweet Olive. Even the name has a calming affect to it!

Litfuse Presents A Gift for Rose…..by Tricia Goyer Plus Win Kindle Fire HDX

A GIFT FOR ROSE

by Tricia Goyer

ABOUT THIS BOOK

A Christmas Gift for Rose

Rose turned her back on the man she loves after he assisted the Englisch during World War II—only to discover she’s an Englischer herself. Born in the midst of the hardships of The Great Depression, Rose grew up in Berlin, Ohio, in the arms of a loving Amish family. But she is overwhelmed by self-doubt when she learns that she was born Englisch and abandoned when her family moved West in search of work. Was she meant to be Amish or would she have been better off growing up with her own kind—Englischers? When the man she loves leaves her behind, Rose is certain he left for good. Yet Rose discovers sometimes our greatest gifts are the ones we fear.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

Rose is content to stay true to her Amish roots. This is why she broke up with her boyfriend, because he decided to join the military in the medical department, and Amish are not to go to war. But then Rose finds out a secret that changes her whole life. I really enjoyed really A Gift for Rose. Roses’ concerns are heartfelt because she is torn between her Amish beliefs and the love of her life, or so she thought he was. But she just can’t seem to find just where she fits in life. Sometimes this book is a bit depressing because of the issues Rose and her family faces, as especially it happening during the Christmas Holiday’s, but sometimes that is how life is.

Again Tricia Goyer delivers a heartwarming story with characters that you will love, and will warm your heart.  A lot of situations happened leading up to Christmas day for Rose’s family, and they were able to enjoy a surprise because of this at their Christmas meal. And Rose was the one who benefited the most, because she is the one who received the most special gift. If you are looking for a really good Christmas read, this is a good one to read!

KJV Homeschool Mom’s Bible….Published by Zondervan

KJV Homeschool Mom’s Bible….Published by Zondervan

KJV Homeschool Mom’s Bible….

Published by Zondervan

_140_245_Book.921.cover[1]

Book Description

Homeschooling mothers will be encouraged by heartfelt, practical readings from the 365 devotions this KJV Bible offers.

This hardcover KJV Bible offers 365 encouraging devotions for moms who educate their children at home. Homeschooling mothers will be encouraged by heartfelt, practical readings that cover topics such as avoiding burnout, staying focused and committed, navigating the needs of toddlers, setting boundaries, and, most importantly, maintaining proper soul care while juggling educational and household responsibilities.

Features include:

  • 365 daily meditations with prayers written by Janet Tatman, a veteran homeschooling mother with more than 25 years of experience homeschooling
  • The full text of the classic King James Version (KJV) Bible
  • Foreword from Vickie Farris, author, homeschool mom, and wife of Michael Farris, founder of the Homeschool Legal Defense Association
  • Topical index

 

My Review………….This Bible with designed for mom’s that home school their children. This is the original King James Version of the Bible, and the devotions are written to encourage home school moms. I think this is really neat because there is a devotion for every day of the year, and they are all dated. Most devotional Bibles have many devotions, but not for every single day. The devotions are not long at all, just one page, and can be read in a few minutes. There are many topics covered here, and all are related to home schooling in some way. The cover is very appealing and eye-catching and the colors are beautiful.

I was really impressed with this new and different Bible. This is the first one I have seen just for those mom’s who home school their children. A lot of encouragement and support can be found in the devotions, which I think would help in reading through the Bible. So…if you are a home school mom, then I think this Bible is a must for you. You will be so pleased that you tried this one.

NIV Worship Together Bible from Booksneeze and Zondervan

NIV Worship Together Bible

Discover Scripture through Classic and Contemporary Musin, by Zondervan

  • NIV Worship Together Bible Discover Scripture through Classic and Contemporary Music

  • Published by Zondervan

Worshiping God is one of the believer’s highest callings. Music and song have been a timeless way to glorify God throughout history. Scripture itself is full of musical and poetic praises dedicated to the Lord. Using a unique combination of songs and reflections, the NIV Worship Together Bible blends modern-day worship and culture with the beloved Word of God. This Bible helps you embrace God as your loving Father and shows you how to exalt him through song and reflection. The musical inspiration in this Bible will remind you of the importance of constantly striving to be Christlike. As Pastor Jack Hayford, the author of the song “Majesty,” once put it: “Worship changes the worshiper into the image of the One worshiped.”

Features:

  • The complete text of the world’s most popular modern-English Bible, the NIV
  • Lyrics to the top 50 worship songs
  • Song notes and reflections from the songwriters
  • Simple chord charts for the Top 20 worship songs
  • Essay that explores the purpose and history of worship music
  • Foreword by Matt Maher
  • Index to organize songs by scriptural reference

Here is what I think!

I love this Bible, because I love Worship Songs and enjoy singing them as I worship. The idea of having the songs throughout this Bible is awesome for me, and I also enjoy the Behind the Songs page as well. The songs mean so much more when you know why they are written, and its all here together in this wonderful Bible. The Hardcover Bible is beautiful, with calming and pleasing colors, inviting you to always read Gods Word.

If you enjoy Worship Songs while you are reading the Bible, then you will really enjoy this one. I encourage you to pick up a copy and see for yourself.
