NIV God's Word for Gardeners Bible: Grow Your Faith While Growing Your Garden

God will meet you personally in your garden... and in his. Throughout the Scriptures God has revealed spiritual truth in the language of growing things. This Bible will take you into a deeper relationship with God through the contemplation of soil and soul. 

NIV God's Word for Gardeners Bible 
Grow Your Faith While Growing Your Garden
The NIV God’s Word for Gardeners Bible will inspire you to seek God in a personal way through informative essays, devotional readings and prayers that explore the nature of the gardener’s work, the rewards of gardening, the influence of seasons and weather, and the joy of the harvest. In this Bible you will also find botanical-themed pages containing horticultural information for the prominent plants noted in Scripture and landscape-themed pages highlighting the main gardens and regions in which the events in the Bible took place. Draw near to the One whose garden is planted with delight---in you!

Features: 
  • 260 daily devotions and 52 weekend readings arranged in weekly themes and placed near relevant passages in the text to explore the biblical metaphors of gardens and gardening 
  • Beautiful, durable hardcover 
  • Topical Index (for 52 weeks) 
  • Special sections on the Garden of Eden, the garden of Gethsemane and Jesus the Vine.
My Thoughts:  Green thumbed faithful, this Bible is for you!  Better yet, Bible and nature lovers will enjoy this Bible as well.  To get a real appreciation for this book you need to read the introduction:  "Reading God's word like a gardener".  Although NIV God’s Word for Gardeners Bible is marketed as a Bible for gardeners, this Bible is so much more.  The Bible is well illustrated and the writers did a wonderful job presenting the gardens of the Bible.

Maple and Brown Sugar Air Fryer Bacon

I've been raving about my Instant Pot but now I have a new favorite... the Air Fryer.  
O M G This thing is amazing!  I don't know why I was so late to the Air Fryer craze but I am so glad I am finally onboard.  

I've been talking about getting one and then after my aunt posted pics of her new air fryer, that was it off to Best Buy I went.  

I wasn't sure how big of a unit I would need but I figured the 2.5 liter would suffice.  I chose the Chefman Express.  It was priced on the shelves for $85 but online for $75.99 and my local store matched the price AND I had my Swagbucks Best Buy QR code so I got 500 SBs + 2 SBs for every dollar spent so that's another 170 SBs.  So, after discounts, my air fryer ended up costing me less than the sale price.  Woohoo!

There were some fancy ones on the shelves with digital display but after checking the reviews I figured since I don't fry much this model would suffice.
When I think of fried foods, I think of fried chicken and bacon.…

Rain, Rain Go Away Giveaway Hop

A few years ago, my kids’ beloved Art teacher passed away. I remember trying to explain the loss to them and they didn’t quite understand. I tried to minimize the harsh reality that their teacher had died. That’s what we tend to do sometimes as parents. Fortunately our school counselor had plenty of resources to help us parents help our kids to understand the loss and help with the grieving process.

One of the resources was a book titled “The Memory Box” by Joanna Rowland. I recently saw the book is still available and now has an accompanying journal. A place to document the memories of a loved one. Joanna’s book helped me guide my children through the grieving process and the fact that the school counselor recommended it made me feel even better. What a wonderful pairing. Not only can you learn about tools to help with the grieving process but you can also create memories to help with the process. Healing through words AND actions.
