What better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than with the God who loves us unconditionally? No matter your relationship status here on Earth, there’s a Groom always waiting for His bride, the church, for you, for me, for all of Us. He loves unconditionally. I also like to think Jesus would share my affinity for candy hearts.

I have always love the small devotionals from My Daily Bread so this collection is right up my alley. Not only is it so pretty and come with a handy ribbon book mark, but each page is filled with a gem.
I love that I can read it in about a minute if I don’t have much time. Or, I can take that minute and just as easily ponder/pray on a element of the lesson or look about the verse. but, I don’t have to – the verse clip is right there and I can read it super quick. It removes my excuse or “I just don’t have time.”
While I haven’t gotten through every day as there’s enough for a full year, each with a nugget that speak’s to my female heart. There are topics on so many I struggle with: relationships, confidence, worthiness, selfishness, believing I am His daughter, that He loves me no matter what.
I’d recommend this devotional for any female old enough to read. The short lessons will work for a girl just beginning to bloom or one who has many years behind her. We all can use the encouragement found in these pages.
I recieved a copy for the purpose of this tour but was not required to post a positive review. All opinions are honestly my own.

‘Feels Like Home’ Winter Recipes
As the weather turns colder, it becomes the time to pull out those tried and true winter-time recipes. You know, the ones that make us (or even keep us) warm on the inside. This is the time for the food that just feels like home.
Kirsten Holmberg and Elisa Morgan from the God Hears Her blog have shared some of their families personal recipes. These are the ones that are good for everyone. Feel free to try them yourself, bookmark them for later, or share them with a friend.
In the winter, I’m partial to any slow-cooker soup or stew because I love coming home to it in the evening. My favorite is a Vegetarian Chili with some Italian influences:
2 bell peppers, diced
2 stalks of celery, sliced
2 lb zucchini halved and sliced
1 lb fresh mushrooms, halved
1 large onion, diced
3 cans diced tomatoes (fire roasted or herbed for the most flavor)
1 can tomato sauce
1 small can black olives, sliced (or fresh in any amount desired)
1 can cannellini beans
2.5 teaspoon Italian seasoning
2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon fresh garlic, minced
½ cup water
Toss it all in a slow cooker for a few hours on high, or all day on low. Or, put it on the stove instead and simmer until the veggies are cooked through and the flavors blended (about 45 minutes). Parmesan cheese on top for an extra zing.
A Cranberry Nut Bread recipe handed down by my mom, Paige Lee
2 cup flour
½ tsp salt
1 ¼ tsp baking powder
½ scant tsp baking soda
1 cup sugar
Sift above ingredients together twice. To the juice and grated rind of 1 large orange, add 2 tbs of melted shortening and enough boiling water to make ¾ cup. Mix with dry ingredients and add…
1 beaten egg
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup halved fresh cranberries
Bake in greased loaf pan for 75 minutes at 350 degrees.
If you double the recipe, bake a little less time and use 3 loaf pans. It also makes good muffins and can be frozen.
