Movie Review: Heaven is for Real

My husband and I got the opportunity to attend a pre-screening of the movie Heaven is for Real, based on the bestselling book by the same name. Feel free to check out the movie trailer here to get an idea of what the movie is about, but I read the book a few years ago and was deeply touched by this true story of a boy’s encounters with heaven and with Jesus, as told by his father.

Ritz Lemon Dilly Sole

Ritz Lemon Dilly Sole

I was having some friends over for dinner last month and decided to have sole fillets, but wanted to try something different. I remembered I had some Epicure Lemon Dilly Dip Mix that I hadn’t tried yet and I LOVE dill!!

God-Sized Dream

You may recall the review I wrote of Holley Gerth’s book “You’re Already Amazing“, which is a great book for discovering who God created you to be and the strengths and gifts He’s given you. Her next book, “You’re Made for a God-Sized Dream” is a fantastic follow-up that takes things a step further (though it can definitely be read independently) and I am so glad I got the opportunity to review this one for you as well! Here’s what {Read More}

I recently told you about the story behind my experience in recording a worship song on our first compilation album called “One Found Worthy“. As the first studio project for Sanctuary House of Prayer‘s new record label ConvUrgent Music, I had no idea what to expect! Though I was singing one of the songs on the album, I didn’t know which other songs had been selected from the many songs submitted by our worship leaders and only got to preview {Read More}

Book Review: Dreams and Visions by Tom Doyle

dreamsandvisions
