Homeschool Mom's Bible (NIV)



In case you didn't know, we homeschool in these parts.  I was intrigued by the idea of the Homeschool Mom's Bible. I was not familiar with Janet Tatman, the author of the daily devotional portion of the Bible, but now I'm glad to have her on my shelf.
This is a pretty standard devotional bible in regards to set up, there are one page devotionals throughout the scripture, each one stating the page number of the next. It is a two column layout with the latest version of the New International Version. There is a table of contents to help you find the books, a table of weights and measures, as well as a topical index for the devotions. The one thing that I would prefer is for the devotions to be all together at the front, that's just me. It works the way it is, but it makes it tough to find your day if you don't start on January 1st.
Now to the content of the devotionals, top notch! They have been extremely encouraging to me in our homeschool journey. Tatman's words have been kind when I've needed kindness and have been sharp when I've need to get off my pity pot. I consider this Bible a great resource during this season of homeschooling for us.

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast.

Tasty Tuesday: Roasted Broccoli

I ran across this recipe on Pinterest the other day that was labeled " The Best Broccoli Of Your Life. " I normally either steam our broccoli in the microwave or saute it with olive oil and red pepper flakes on the stove top. I decided this would be something to try. I did the salt, pepper and olive oil part of the recipe. I didn't have the majority of the other ingredients. In fact, all I had was a little bit of Parmesan  It was wonderful. Not the best broccoli of my life, but honestly, it was pretty close. And if I had the lemon juice and all that jazz, it may very well be the best. What have you been eating lately?

Together is a Beautiful Place by Bailey T. Hurley

  Have you ever wanted to be a better friend or been stumped by how to make your friendships more meaningful? If so, you might want to pick up a copy of Together is a Beautiful Place. Hurley does an excellent job of sharing ways to connect with people that you know and how to easily take your relationships from surface level to deep and meaningful parts of your life. One of my favorite parts of the book is when Hurley incorporates surveys and other data to give insight into relationship building. She shares that it takes 90 hours of social interaction to consider someone a friend. When you’re only seeing each other in passing, it will take much longer than when you carve out time to specifically be with people.  Overall, Together is a Beautiful Place is an encouraging and helpful read. Exactly what I needed as I continue to make friends in life.  I received a copy of this book through NetGalley for the purpose of review. I’m never required to say nice things about books but I’m always
