SFTH: Living a Life of Obedience by Cheri Swalwell
Have read many of the authors works in the past several days. Hope I've kept them straight with my reviews.
Starts out with other works by the author of which I've read a large majority of.
Enjoyed the authors explanation of how the scriptures and passages from the Bible come into everyday life.
I was given the book by the author who I met via Book Fun (The Book Club Network) and this is my honest review


Spoken from The Heart:Walking in Freedom by Cheri Swalwell
Have read many of the authors works in the past several days. Hope I've kept them straight with my reviews.
Very upbeat uplifting book about how you got this and God is behind you also.
Everyday instances of hope through faith and belief in God.
Listening was also another key one we just discovered this past week visiting relatives across the country. Technology got in the way of us hearing what was being said.
Strong powerful messages in this book.  Amazing explanation about the fear of winter driving, I also suffer from that.

Spoken from The Heart: Connections by Cheri Swalwell
Have read many of the authors works in the past several days. Hope I've kept them straight with my reviews.
Have enjoyed them all.
This one starts out with examples of how she follows God in her everyday life and asks how you can do the same.
These books give you themes to really think about and how you can make the changes you really want to make. Love the comfort zone and getting out of it from time to time also.
Appreciate hearing of her journeys through the years and how she's made changes while quoting passages and scriptures from the Bible.
Hadn't even realized what I do when I'm mowing the lawn, ironing and doing laundry-mediating.
Like references to other works and some of the previous books I've read from the author-to drive home the point that is being made. Other works by the author are highlighted.

Spoken from the Heart: Blessed By His Love BY Cheri Swalwell
Have read many of the authors works in the past several days. Hope I've kept them straight with my reviews.
So easy to understand meaningful messages of hope for us all.
Insight into how God loves us and shows us with blessings. Love the chapter on music-can't get enough to get me in the mood.

Spoken From The Heart: Parenting 101 by Cheri Swalwell
Have read many of the authors works in the past several days. Hope I've kept them straight with my reviews.
A spirit week, SO creative and fun!
Like other book titles as I've read many of the same books and or authors
Gifts from our parents I was with my parents as they fought for guardianship of my deceased brothers three children in court one day and something came up as we waited to be heard by the judge.
I was there to show support and if needed I'd babysit or anything my parents needed me to do. We saw many handcuffed and someone commented about the amount of them and I said our parents raised us too good so we know nothing other than that and how to treat others.
Brought tears to my parents eyes.
Geek time - we ran into a problem with his during our trip to the west coast. I would knit and use my tablet, others were busy with theirs, not realizing the grandson just wanted our full attention and it dawned on me one night as we left to spend the night at the hotel. The next day upon arriving back no pc's were put on and the child was a fun loving one again.
Keep pc time to a minimum because you can lose yourself in doing things on it. Face to face communication is the best.

 25 Pasta Recipes YOU Will Fall in Love with  by Robert Pratt
This book includes pictures, no nutritional information.
Has list of ingredients and some are not as healthy as they could be.
Servings and prep time and how to make the dish.
Has ome really good ideas for fish recipes.


DIY Projects: 15 Insanely Easy to Make DIY Home Projects by Tom Richardson
Really great ideas for inside and out. Especially like the idea of lights on the ceiling and am thinking how to make it happen in my house.









Instant Pot Cookbook: A Comprehensive Instant Pot Pressure Cooker Cookbook with 110 Amazing Recipes for Healthy, Fast, and Delicious Meals
Really like that it has conversions from slow cooker recipes to use in the pressure cooker.
Each recipe has servings, time to make and a summary of the dish.
List of ingredients and how to make it step by step in the instant one pot. Has some nutritional information but fat is not broken up into good and bad. Has no sodium posted either but you should be able to substitute for healthier dietary needs.
Felt some recipes because you have to put the food into individual pots inside the one pot and then move them to the stove to get a crusty top just take way too long to make.
A KEEPER!







Out of the Frying Pan BY KELLY KLEPFER
Enjoyed this book although it was a bit more like 2 books in one. First if the mystery of the chef found dead at the retirement center and the elderly sisters-in-law investigate on their own.
They also have a niece, KC that comes to visit who had visited before and fallen for the local cop, Jared but they break up as she leaves to go back to work in another location.
Katherine comes to help again and the elderly sisters pair them up together and realize what it is they really have in a relationship. Lots of turmoil, drugs, spies, wedding plans, ongoing love relations, and everyday events a bit tilted.
Like how religion plays a part in this with the explanation of the tattoo.  At times with so many characters things get confusing.
I was given the book by the author via Book Fun (The Book Club Network) and here is my honest review.
