The subtitle, "Discover Grace, Let Go of Guilt, and Rest in Your Salvation" got my attention. I don't know which part resonated with me most. Grace. Letting go of guilt. Resting in salvation. All of these sounded so good. In reading the book, I must confess I think the author does a fair job of helping readers discover grace and encouraging them to rest in their salvation, but if you've had a long-time struggle with guilt (not forgiving yourself) even after recognizing Christ's finished work on the cross, this book isn't going to be a therapeutic read that changes your life. At least, not in my prediction or in my case. That being said, if you are ever doubting whether or not you can be or are saved, if you're questioning if you're sitting on the proverbial fence, or if you have any hesitation about whether pearly gates will open for you when your days on earth are through, this book can offer a solid foundation in understanding your position in terms of salvation, and that can be life-changing.
Now, to be clear, not every recipe in this cookbook is egg free, but a good portion of them are and I've tasted such yumminess I'm not keeping it to myself! The recipes are all free of gluten, grains, dairy and refined sugar.
"Ready or Not: 150+ Make-Ahead, Make-Over, and Make-Now Recipes" by Nom Nom Paleo is a hit in our family. I've renewed the book from the library twice now, keeping it for over a month just to sample more goodness.

I am not much of a blog reader. There's only a couple I check on occasion:
Love this girl's writing... feels like she's a long distance friend. Well, her sister is my long-distance friend, so that probably helps. Either way, what an inspiration and encouragement- you just need to check out some of the places life has taken Leah and be strengthened and inspired by the love that oozes (yes, oooozes) from her heart for Jesus, His people and His creation!
If you like nummy recipes, or have special dietary needs (or both!) check it out. ALL of her recipes are Vegan, and many can be made gluten-free. I stumbled upon it when searching for dairy/egg free treats to make for my kiddo and have gotten hooked on several recipes. Okay, "hooked on" doesn't portray it well enough. How about "addicted to"? That's more fitting. Will definitely be going back for more!
