I got this bible because I thought I’d learn a little bit of Hebrew and Greek language unfortunately without having to travel althrough the bible to find the meaning of just one word that is underline, it wasn’t a fast find, so it wasn’t the case that I learned the languages. I was very disappointed in that reason to start with. The back of the book as Vines Complete Expository Dictionary, which seems to me they’re trying to sale you the dictionary to go along with the bible for the Hebrew and Greek language, if that’s the case if you want to learn more and go deeper into the language of Hebrew and Greek I feel taking classes would be better for you. You’ll learn more of the languages that way and maybe happier also this dictionary maybe a very good resource for you, worth checking into that as well. In this bible at the side of the scriptures in pale blue box there are scriptures to go to and look up the word that is underlined and it sends you all over the bible for example in Psalm 23 for the word comfort in Greek or Hebrew for “sorry or grieve” there are 7 different passages in the bible to go and read about that one word and the meanings, where as the dictionary should tell every meaning right by the words you are looking up makes it easier and faster. I am sure some may like to go to the different passages and read the passages which is fine too, but for me if I am reading something I’d like to get the information and meaning fast so I can continue to read what I started to read you may not mind going although the bible to read the meaning of that word and probably how it is used. This bible is still a good bible to read. It’s just not what I was expecting is all and I think that is the reason I felt the way I did about this bible. I received this bible free from booklookblogging for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review just an honest review. The opinions I have expressed are entirely my own and no one else’s. I’d like to see someone come out with a bible that would have good scriptures to remember on a page or where to find the scripture in the bible Like the “Armor of God” or John 3:16, John 15:5 for example and then give the reason it’s a good scripture to remember. Why do I say that because the people that write these bibles keeps the word of God (I pray) as he was the author and they understand better certain scriptures that are more important to remember to fight the devil. 4 Stars ISBN 978-0-7180-7656-6

While My Child Is Away My Prayers for When We Are Apart By: Edie Melson I love the mint green color of the cover that brings relaxation before you open the book up to start reading it and praying. I look to see if the cover tells me a story of its own, yes it does it tells me of peace. What does it tell you? As parents we want all our children safe from harm, the drugs, bullies that have been coming after our children hard, ISIS killing innocent people with no care for other people’s lives. The world is getting worse and we see it with our own eyes. We want our children to walk in the path of righteousness but how can they stay on that path with so much cruel things going on in our world? Our prayers do matter and our God hears them just because he doesn’t answer the way we want him to, doesn’t mean he has left us to fight our battles alone. We have to keep praying for our children no matter what or where they are or what they are doing. Prayers are a mother’s life line to our children even when they don’t want you around because they feel they are all grown up and can handle things all by themselves. We are the anchor that we hope keeps them close to God and safe. One prayer that caught my eye was “Forgive Me for My Parental Mistakes” that hit home for me because it said the words I have been looking for to tell my children. There are all kinds of Prayers, parenting thoughts, foundation of faith. This book is only 219 pages long with all kinds of information to help you pray for your child and prayers for yourself. A core of strength: one of my favorite is “Remind me to fight on bended knees”. I’ve learned first to thank God for His love, then praise Him. God is worthy of praise all the time. I received this book free from Worthy Publishing for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review just an honest one. The opinions I expressed our entirely my own and no one else’s. I recommend this book highly. Thank you Worthy for a beautiful book. 5 Stars ISBN 9781617957314

Danielle Walker’s Against all Grain Celebrations A Year of gluten-free, dairy-free and paleo recipes for every occasion By: Danielle Walker I love the cover that shows delious food on a table with a smiling lady serving it. This beautiful book is filled with all kinds of pies, cookies, cakes, salads, and main dishes for Halloween, Valentine’s Day, Christmas, Birthday, and Fourth of July and some kind of drinks. The pages are full of pictures that go along with the delicious recipes that will make your mouth water. I can’t wait to try for starters the persimmon prosciutto salad and maybe curry pumpkin soup along with the turkey breast with stuffing, with the vegetable bacon parcels and then end with the red velvet cake and to drink maybe the spiced apple hot Toddy (no booze). That sounds so yummy I can’t wait for my grandkids to get here for Christmas and we can make this together. As I looked through this beautiful book packed full of wonderful recipes and pictures that makes your mouth water, I ran across the curry pumpkin soup that just made my mouth water. I have been trying to find cold soups but again I didn’t find any cold soups in this cook book. Cold soups is one of my favorite the watermelon or strawberry cold soups are great Maybe Danielle will write another cook book and have some cold soups in them. As you’ll find out Danielle suffered from debilitating autoimmune disease so her recipes are grain-free, dairy-free, gluten-free comfort food dishes. I recommend this beautiful cookbook and I feel you’ll really enjoy Danielle’s cookbook too. Happy Cooking!!!!!!! I received this beautiful cookbook free from blogging for books for an honest review.

The Wedding Shop By: Rachel Hauck I love the cover of the wedding dress in the window. We’ve all had a Rufus and Birch or a Dax and Cole in our lives, guess if we knew in advance what they were like we’d know exactly whom to pick the first time and not waste all those years waiting on the wrong person. As Rachel is weaving a beautiful tapestry of years gone by of the 1930’s with Cora and with the years of 1900’s with Haley we’ll see the tapestry take on a life of sadness and heart ache, dishonesty and then as God comes to their rescue you’ll see a beautiful tapestry of all that blended together with the heart ache in with richness of God’s presence of hope, change and blessings. So as you travel the journey with Cora in 1930’s waiting for the love of her life, Capitan Rufus on the river boat to come back and make her his wife, and then with Haley in the years in 1900’s dealing with her time in the air force, the lost of a dear friend. Haley comes home to start a new life and keep a promise she and her friend Tammy made when they played in an old wedding shop when they were 10 years old, so as they left the wedding shop in the year 1996 they made a pinky promise and a dream they wanted to come true, of opening the wedding shop up once again. Two good friends and a dream they shared when they were so very young. So as Haley reached home with a heavy heart, no trust the one thing she kept alive was the dream and promise Tammy and Haley had as young friends. So Haley knew she wanted to keep her promise, this was also the only way Haley felt she could keep her friends name alive. So as your journey ends between the years gone by and 1900’s you’ll see the tapestry being finished and woven into beauty of love, forgiveness and happiness. Happy Adventure!!!! I recommend this book highly it truly is a master piece. I received this book free for an honest review from book look. I was not required to write a positive review just an honest one.

The Key Ideas Bible Handbook Understanding and Applying All the Main Concepts Book by Book By: Ron Rhodes This beautifully written book is great for prayer groups, life group’s women or men. This book is brimming with the applicational “big ideas” from Genesis – Revelations. This book will lighten your mind, touch your heart and brighten your soul. So as my journey started in this book – I didn’t read the first page I went right to Psalms, you ask why, well let me tell you—I love the book of Psalms it is my favorite book because it gives praise, devotion and thanksgiving to God in every book of the Psalms. At the top of each book of the Bible there are words for example the top of the first page of The Gospel it says “ Jesus, the messianic King, teacher us what we need to know about rightly relating to God, rightly relating to each other, and how to live a GOD honoring life”. Isn’t that beautiful? At the beginning of each book there are time lines, someone like Billy Graham and C. S. Lewis says something about the bible, verses to remember and references to find it in the Bible, cross- references for example If Your Brother Sins. I recommend this book highly if you want to learn more about the bible. This is definitely a book you’d want to keep by your bible they go hand in hand. The verses to remember are a great addition; we all need to remember some verses. This book has so much information to help you along with your Bible. I received this book free from Harvest House for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review just an honest one.

NIV Cultural Backgrounds Study Bible The Bible Brings to Life Ancient World of Scripture. By: Craig S. Keener and John H. Walton The cove is beautiful. I love to look at the covers of the books and imagine what the writer was thinking and how they come to want a certain cover for their books. Psalm 23 is by far my favorite scripture in the Bible so I always turn to that part of the Bible first. The book of Psalm is praise to God. What is your favorite book or scripture in the bible? This Bible took verse by verse and laid it out so you could understand it clearly. This brought a whole new meaning of Psalm 23 for me. WOW!!! I fell in love with the way this bible helped me understand the scriptures more clearly than ever. This bible brings life to the scriptures like never before and helps you get closer to the words that are written, you can then see the way life was back in those days and what they meant by how they spoke. I grew up on the KJ bible it was so hard from me to understand as a kid and the words were way beyond my understanding. I feel that is why a lot of kids just stopped reading the Bible or read it and still tried to understand what the heck they just read and what did it mean. Made me feel dumb as a box of rocks, I still have trouble with some of the words and names wow they are hard names or is it just me? The Cultural Backgrounds bible helps by explaining the scriptures and makes it more alive for me then the KJ. At beginning of the bible there is Table of content you’ll find maps of places, travels, Journeys, Fall of Jericho. There us information on Hebrew to English chart. You’ll be happy with this Bible by Zendervan. Beautifully written, lots of information, pictures and below every page the information clearly tells what the verses mean. I recommend this BIBLE highly. I received this Bible from booklookbloggers for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review just an honest review. The opinions I have expressed are entirely my own and no one else’s. 5 Stars ISBN 978-0-310-43158-9

http://www.booksamillion.com/p/Mushrooms-Redwood-Coast/Noah-Siegel/Q690010921?id=5826426027671 http://covers3.booksamillion.com/covers2/ebook/82/81/9781607748182.jpg Mushrooms of the Redwood Coast A Comprehensive Guide to the Fungi of Coastal California By: Noah Siegel and Christian Schwarz The cover is pretty with all the trees and at the bottom some pictures of pretty colored mushrooms. The colorful pictures inside this book are unique. I was hoping they also tell if the mushrooms could be found in other states as well, but that wasn’t the case. Maybe they write another book with mushrooms around the USA that would be great. On page 254 there are mushrooms in a group called Lactarius deliciosus group. The one at the bottom is really weird looking. There are so many beautiful pictures of the mushrooms around Calif. You’ll be amazed. As you read through the book and look at the pictures of the mushrooms you’ll find that Noah and Christian wrote a description of the mushrooms. They tell of the texture and taste of the mushroom IF they are edible and where they are found like under trees and what kinds of trees or under leave or bushes or even by rivers. They give you information like edible or not edible or not known, well to me the not know means don’t eat them. The explanation they wrote for the mushrooms are very well written. For you people that live in Calif. and love mushrooms this would be a great book for you then you could go out and have a day of mushroom hunting. I recommend this book highly for anyone that is interested in mushrooms even if you don’t live in Calf. This book is very interesting and beautiful pictures of the Fungi. HAPPY READING!!!!
