My Review

God Hears Her is a devotional book that is for women, by women.  It is a 365-day devotional book written by female authors from Our Daily Bread.  Each devotional gives a suggested Scripture reading, followed by a key verse, and then the devotional thoughts.  Knowing that the devotionals have come from Our Daily Bread gives comfort and credibility, because as a long-time reader of Our Daily Bread, I know that they will be scripturally sound.  And knowing that they are written from the hearts of other women gives comfort.  The forward by Elisa Morgan is especially encouraging.

God Hears Her is a beautiful book.  It is a hardcover book, with a tastefully-designed cover.  Inside, the pages have a different design than what one usually finds in Our Daily Bread, which makes it appealing for women.  A ribbon bookmark adds to its charm and makes the book very appropriate for giving as a gift.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher, Our Daily Bread Publishing, through Celebrate Lit, for review purposes.  The thoughts expressed here are my own.

‘Feels Like Home’ Winter Recipes

As the weather turns colder, it becomes the time to pull out those tried and true winter-time recipes. You know, the ones that make us (or even keep us) warm on the inside. This is the time for the food that just feels like home.

Kirsten Holmberg and Elisa Morgan from the God Hears Her blog have shared some of their families' personal recipes. These are the ones that are good for everyone. Feel free to try them yourself, bookmark them for later, or share them with a friend.

Kirsten Holmberg

In the winter, I’m partial to any slow-cooker soup or stew because I love coming home to it in the evening. My favorite is a Vegetarian Chili with some Italian influences:

2 bell peppers, diced
2 stalks of celery, sliced
2 lb zucchini halved and sliced
1 lb fresh mushrooms, halved
1 large onion, diced
3 cans diced tomatoes (fire roasted or herbed for the most flavor)
1 can tomato sauce
1 small can black olives, sliced (or fresh in any amount desired)
1 can cannellini beans
2.5 teaspoon Italian seasoning
2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon fresh garlic, minced
½ cup water

Toss it all in a slow cooker for a few hours on high, or all day on low. Or, put it on the stove instead and simmer until the veggies are cooked through and the flavors blended (about 45 minutes). Parmesan cheese on top for an extra zing.

A Cranberry Nut Bread recipe handed down by my mom, Paige Lee

2 cups flour
½ tsp salt
1 ¼ tsp baking powder
½ scant tsp baking soda
1 cup sugar

Sift above ingredients together twice. To the juice and grated rind of 1 large orange, add 2 tbs of melted shortening and enough boiling water to make ¾ cup. Mix with dry ingredients and add…

1 beaten egg
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup halved fresh cranberries

Bake in greased loaf pan for 75 minutes at 350 degrees.

If you double the recipe, bake a little less time and use 3 loaf pans. It also makes good muffins and can be frozen.
