Esther: Finding Yourself in Times of Trouble, by Eugene H. Peterson is a Bible study, devotional, and a coloring book. It is designed for a group or single study. The writing style and questions, however, tend to be designed for women.
I received this book free from by FrontGate Media to facilitate this review
God Loves Daddy and Me by Bonnie Rickner Jensen and illustrated by Laura Watkins is an adorable board book that highlights the bond and the love a father and child share together.
This bond between a father and child is demonstrated in a number of ways on each page. There are scenes of the pair paddling a boat on a lake, building pillow and blanket forts, walking & talking outdoors, helping each other during the chore or raking leaves, playing hide-and-seek amongst the branches, roasting a marshmallow over a fire on the beach in the evening, saying prayers together at bedtime, forgiving when something goes wrong and tucking in the little one in at bedtime.
Jess Volinski’s coloring book Notebook Doodles Go Girl!: Coloring & Activity Book is an inspiring and empowering book for girls. It’s full of encouraging, inspiring, and positive phrases to color and activities that can help build self-confidence. It’s geared toward elementary and middle school grades but also a good choice not just for the young but for the young at heart.

I love cooking for my family and friends. Using high-quality ingredients are of the utmost importance whether it’s the freshest vegetables, meats, fruits, or specialty oil and sauces. Speaking of, I’ve happily been using Kasandrinos high quality organic extra virgin olive oil for a few months now and am pleased. This oil can be used in everything from homemade salad dressing, the base to fry up vegetables, to give my pasta meals an extra special pick me up, and so much more.
