Stepping Heavenward, Squeezing The Tube, and Trim Healthy Mama
I’ve been blessed by some treats in the blogging world, so I thought I’d pass them along. Enjoy and be filled!
Bambi over at In The Nursery Of The Nation, shares about the book Stepping Heavenward by Elizabeth Prentice. We’ve had this book in our home for probably 20 years, but I can’t believe I haven’t taken the time to read it! My older girls have and loved it, but since reading Bambi’s thoughts on it, I think I’ll make it our next family read! We all need examples of faithful living and the struggles of life. Enjoy – and let me know what you think of it!
This next recommendation comes from my daughter (the one who attended Ellerslie). How would you answer this question? What Comes Out of You When You’re Squeezed? “When the pressures of life press against us, how do we respond?” Will the ways of the world come out, or will Jesus? Hmmm. Read this please, over at Deeper Christian. You won’t be disappointed! It’s simply a great picture of how we’re to check ourselves to see what’s really inside! Oh, that’s easy, you say? Well, let me know how you do during your next big trial or temptation. Again, it’s what’s on the inside that matters to God!
And last, but not certainly least, is a great new book on healthy eating called, Trim Healthy Mama by Allison and Barrett. You can read a great review over at Keeper of the Home. I bought this book for my daughter because she is struggling with losing her “baby” fat after her second c-section. She is totally amazed at the results of following this Trim Healthy Mama’s advice. She isn’t doing everything ‘by the book’, but like the Amazon reviews I read said, even following half of their tips results in lost pounds! She has lost 9 lbs. in 6 weeks and is thrilled!
I now own this book and am enjoying it’s conversational style of writing. The premise of not combining two fuel sources (glucose and fats) in the same meal really works. It just makes physiological sense to avoid the storing of extra fuel/energy, which our body stores as fat. The best part of this nutritional diet is that even if you just use the one-fuel-source idea in your meal planning, you will lose weight. Highly recommended!
Well, there you have it! My ‘good reads’ from the last few weeks. I am blessed by all the wisdom available to us, but of course, the only true source is God alone. He simply uses His servants as vessels to pour it out to each of us! (And if you choose to purchase these books from my links, remember, they do help me to pay for this website, so thanks in advance!)
Older women likewise are to be reverent in their behavior, not malicious gossips nor enslaved to much wine, teaching what is good, so that they may encourage the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be sensible, pure, workers at home, kind, being subject to their own husbands, so that the word of God will not be dishonored. Titus 2:3-5
