Behold the King of Glory: A Narrative of the Life, Death, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ Nancy Guthrie, Russ Ramsey #BookReview





Behold the King of Glory

The life, death, and resurrection of Jesus stand at the heart of the Christian faith. For many, however, the story is so familiar that it no longer instills a profound sense of awe and wonder. In this carefully researched retelling of the gospel story, pastor Russ Ramsey seeks to reinvigorate readers' appreciation for Jesus Christ by helping believers and nonbelievers alike encounter the truth about Jesus's life, work, and message in a fresh and compelling way.

Designed to be read at any time of the year, Behold the King of Glory follows the ministry of Jesus in one continuous narrative, culminating in his dramatic arrest, execution, and resurrection. Creatively written yet rooted in the Bible, this resource will reawaken readers' appreciation for Jesus Christ, the King of Glory.


My Review:

Ever wondered what is was like when Jesus lived? Do you want to follow along His journey? Russ Ramsey takes you there with "Behold the King of Glory". 40 Chapters that really help the reader understand and feel Jesus' life and times. This can be used as a type of devotional but it doesn't read as a devotional, a great historical retelling to read anytime and for the future it can also be used for Lent.

This book is for everyone, non-believing and believers of Christ. Its historical and moving. You will want to continue on the journey.

Bunny's First Spring - Sally Lloyd-Jones #BookReview #ChildrensBooks




Spring hasn't sprung quite yet we are still finishing up a cold winter here in Eastern North Carolina! The children are ready for Spring, warmer temperatures, flowers to bloom, and of course with Spring comes Easter and Spring Break! I had the opportunity thanks to Zondervan Kidz to review "Bunny's First Spring" which was a great book to teach my children about the changing seasons and what is to come! 

My Review:

Sally Lloyd-Jones' "Bunny's First Spring" is a children's book celebrating the Easter season and the rebirth of the Spring Season. In the story we follow a baby bunny born in the Spring who goes on to learn about the seasons changing and what comes with the change of the seasons.

The bunny enjoys spring but starts to  be frightened and worried about the Earth dying as the seasons change. The story in a way is like the rebirth of Christ with His Death came life. With Winter and the hibernating sleep the bunny goes into with his family he learns that life can be resurrected from death upon awakening in the new Spring.

Love the illustrations by David McPhail. You will be delighted at the beautiful pictures illustrated in this book. Also at the end of book she included this quote (paraphrased) from
 Martin Luther:

"God has written the promise of new life
not just in books alone,
but in every leaf in springtime."

Bunny's First Spring would be quite the treat if your looking for books about Spring
and with Easter coming up this would be a great addition to your children's Easter Basket!

I would recommend for children ages 4-8, be sure to answer any questions your children may have after reading this book. Its a good opportunity to teach your children about the seasons changing and that with death that new life is reborn especially in nature!

Silicone Heat Resistant Grilling/BBQ Kitchen Gloves #Aylsiliconeglove #Tomoson #Review


   


When it comes to baking, grilling, or handling anything in the kitchen that is hot I simply love to use my AYL Silicone Baking gloves. No more worries about burning my finger tips or even my whole hand with these. They are heat resistant up to 425 degrees Fahrenheit and the no slip finger design makes handling hot objects safely.

We have used ours for taking dishes our of the oven and even pizza was easy to take out wearing these! Pizza is the one thing I almost always get burned trying to take out! My fiance has used these when grilling as well as when he's baking a cerakote coating of paint to one of his titanium gun parts.

Cleaning these up is a breeze, they are waterproof, dirt, oil, grease wash right on off! I can definitely see myself using these if  I have to remove a large roast or pulled pork butt from the oven with my hands! I would recommend even wearing these when cutting a large cut of meat to prevent burning your fingers!


Short little description directly from the seller:

If you are looking for the perfect pair of oven mitts that are versatile for the kitchen, for the grill, or for using when handling all things hot (up to 425 degrees), I highly recommend purchasing a pair of these Silicone Kitchen Gloves for your household. These would also make great gifts for your special guy or gal!
