Book Review: If You Have a Craving, I Have a Cure by Sheri Rose Shepherd

Hello Friends,
I hope your holiday was filled with lots of love and joy. I've just finished reading, If You Have a Craving, I Have a Cure, by Sheri Rose Shepherd. This is one of my chosen books to review for Tyndale Publishers. I was pleasantly surprised by Sheri's real-life short stories at the beginning of each chapter. Her "short takes" hook you into reading each chapter. This recipe book is filled with applicable Scripture and tasty recipes. Here is a taste of what you will find in each chapter:


1. One of Sheri's personal short stories.
2. Soul Food: Scripture and how it applies to our enjoyment of food.
3. New Life Recipes: Scripture and ideas about creating positivity and joy in your daily life.
4. Power Up with Prayer: Scripture and a power prayer.
5. Food Truth: A truth to keep in mind throughout the day/week.
6. Recipes with ingredients and step-by-step instructions.
7. A QR code that you can scan with your smart phone, providing more weight loss and kitchen coaching tips from Sheri. (available as a link, also)

Sheri's recipes are filled with mouth-watering ingredients. No bland or tasteless ingredients in this book! If you are thinking about losing weight, maintaining your weight or just eating healthier, this is a great book to help you achieve your goals. 

I received this book compliments of Tyndale House Publishers, in exchange for my honest review.  is a great recipe book to add to your personal library. It is a recipe book that you will use when in need of an emotional and spiritual lift. It is available in paperback, as well as eReader formats. Happy reading, friends!

A Gift to Behold and Cherish

Good Morning Saints,
I love Christmas and the studying of Christ and His birth! Why? Because of the wonderful gift of God's enduring love: Christ. I think about this Gift, often. And, although the Lord asks nothing of me, other than to believe, I want to honor His gift of life and salvation. Now, I know that my offerings are imperfect, but I also know that the Lord looks upon my heart and not my imperfections(1 Samuel 16:7). Oh, and how my heart jumps in my chest with joy and praise when I think of the love He has for me! I feel the need to dance like David(2 Samuel 6:14)! I hope you feel it, too! So, as I sit in my art studio, writing this entry and thinking about the multitude of blessings that rain upon us, everyday, it is with much joy and thanksgiving that I share my love of the Trinity with you.... May you and yours be blessed this season and every season. ~Cynthia


Scripture
The Birth of Jesus
Matthew 1:18-25
    This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit. Because Joseph her husband was a righteous man and did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.
    But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, "Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins."
