This daily, family - faith and food-themed devotional is delightfully unique!  For every recipe (one for every day of the year), there is a family-friendly dinnertime devotional as well. Each reading is themed to appeal to your family--with topics like priorities, prayer, encouragement, love, and dozens more. 

Bonus material includes creative ideas and inspiration for getting the entire family around the dinner table each night of the week, plus a categorized recipe index will help you easily locate your family's favorite dishes. 

365 Family Dinners and Devotions Cookbook is truly a celebration of  family, faith and food! 

My first reaction upon reviewing the recipes in this book was, "Wow, there is something in here for everyone!"  The recipes range from appetizers to salads, main course dishes, side dishes and desserts. They are all simple, homey recipes that just invite you to sit down and enjoy them time and again. They are definitely recipes my family and I will enjoy!

The devotionals that accompany the recipes for each day of the year are well written, to the point and provide a wonderful opportunity for a family to share and explore God's love and plan for each of us. The devotional topics are family oriented and able to be discussed during dinner time. The initial reading of the daily devotional for all the family to hear takes less than five minutes. 

Another bonus are the family dinner time tips interlaced throughout this book. I found them to be practical, helpful and very informative!

This book is a wonderful resource for bringing faith, fun and meaning to the family dinner table. 365 Family Dinners and Devotions is wonderful gift for yourself and your family and would make a fantastic gift for others as well!

I wish I had had this book when my children were still at home. This is a great tool for mothers who want their family time around the table to be purposeful and meaningful. A mother can use any tip she can get to help her with new ideas and to keep the troops on track with God.

Easy Beginner Baby Blanket

I'm a bit behind on posting some of my crochet work. I made this blanket earlier this summer for a co-worker who was expecting their first child.  

I used Bernat Big Ball baby blanket yarn ~ Lilac Leaf for the blanket and Lilac for the edging. This yarn is so soft and easy to work with! 

I followed a pattern from Melanie Ham that I found on Y. Tube. This pattern is SO easy! I was able to make this blanket in about 2 -3 hours.  I added the scalloped edging to finish off the blanket.  

This is definitely going to be one of my "go to" baby blankets to make. It also is the perfect size for a lapghan!

Another Great PBS Show ~ Secrets of the Six Wives

So much has been written about Henry the VIII, his reign and his wives ... what could one more documentary share anything new?  
How about the King's reign from the perspective of his six wives! 

{From PBS}Historian Lucy Worsley time travels back to the Tudor Court to witness some of the most dramatic moments in the lives of Henry VIII’s six wives. Combining drama based on eye witness accounts, historical sources and Lucy’s own contemporary historical comment, Lucy moves seamlessly from the present to the past. In a world run by men where the king had ultimate power, each queen (as well as their ladies in waiting) found their own unique methods of exerting influence. For the first time, it is these women’s stories that Lucy wants to uncover, witness and explore, as well as offering her own take on Henry himself. 

{My Thoughts} 
The film production of this documentary is excellent. Lucy Worsley, the narrator has such a passion for history and it shines through.  Her modern day perspect…

Continuous Granny Square Blanket

Continuous Granny Square Blanket

I had a lot of fun creating this blanket and truth be told, it was so easy - just one large continuous granny square! I was pretty excited to see the colors blend so much better than I anticipated.
The yarn I used was Red Heart's Super Saver and I just picked out colors that I liked.  For the pattern, I loosely based this blanket on The Crochet Crowd's continuous granny square pattern but I wanted to use multiple colors so I adapted his pattern a bit. 

 Colorful Granny Square Blanket Pattern
Color 1 - 2 rows
Color 2 - 2 rows
Color 3 - 4 rows
Color 4 - 2 rows
Color 5 - 2 rows
Repeat the above pattern until you reach the size that you want for your blanket.  To finish it off, I did a row of single crochet for the border.
