Book Review: French Milk by Lucy Knisley

No two persons ever read the same book. ~Edmund Wilson [ London enjoys travelogues, here she dives into French Milk the book :D ] Lucy Knisley is one of my and now London's :D favorite graphic book authors. The honesty in her life she portrays through pictures and humor can't be beat. French Milk is a travel diary of her trip to France with her mom. and her experiences and thoughts of that trip. French Milk made me laugh and remember some of the things I enjoyed about Paris France; yeah, I'm talking about the Food! :D Some of the pictures in the books include her own photography along with the comics, something London enjoyed as well! [ London, who was once a model enjoys revisiting Franc

Book Review of whispers of rest! By Bonnie Gray

A resort for the soul... [ Hey everyone check out Bonnie Gray's awesome book and podcasts too ! ] When Piper (above )and I first received this book, I was honored and grateful to be a part of something which aids in bringing people closer to the Lord. Bonnie has been blessed with a talent for reaching others through written and spoken word. [ Piper's already benefiting from the wisdom of the Lord and the creativity of Bonnie! ] Whispers of rest is a 40 day soul journey that provides you with the space to disconnect from our lives for the moment and to reconnect with with something bigger than us, something that comes before the business of our lives and priorities; it carries us to our Lord

Surviving Pets with Asthma & Allergies

Pets are humanizing. They remind us that we have an obligation and responsibility to preserve and nurture and care for all life. ~Christopher McCandless [ Does it get any cuter than this? :D ] Let me begin this with a statement by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America: People with dog allergies may be more sensitive to some breeds of dogs than others. Some people may be allergic to all dogs. People may think certain breeds of dogs are "hypoallergenic," but a truly non-allergic dog or cat does not exist. There may be many companies or people breeding and selling pets with this moniker non allergenic dogs or cats, but it's a sales pitch and there is no fact based on it. [ Has anyone

Turmeric the Real 'Superfood'!

[ The beauty of spices...] By now we've all heard about the heroic powers of the spice Tumeric and what it can do for us. Well, this is one superfood ( Spice ) that lives up to it's hype! :D Tumeric is a beautiful yellow-gold spice that's been used in Indian and Asian cooking for centuries. It's the spice that provides curries with their golden color. The healing properties ( Anti Inflammatory and Anti Cancer ) of turmeric are a call for it to add into your diet daily. :} [ Using Tumeric and other inflammatory fighting spices and foods are our defense against the army of health stealing bacteria that arm themselves to invade us! ] Let's start with a mini refresher on what inflammation is

Dealing With Food Temptation With Food Allergies.

The heart, like the stomach, wants a varied diet. ~ Gustave Flaubert [ Poor Clawdie; The struggle is real! ] Anyone with a food allergy , especially multiple ones understands the trials of temptation when it comes to the food favorites you once loved but can no longer have. It's been about 10 years for me and the journey's been formidable at times too, maddening! Back when I started, there weren't the enormous variety of choices that there are now. [ The early years of Rice Milk, Yuk! ] However, that being said like the old song says "Ain't nothing like the real thing!" So here is where the challenges start and to be honest never end. :D The pic of Clawdie sneaking in old favorites is a s

The Grass Is Greener On YOUR Side of The Fence!

[ The grass is greenest where it is watered. ~ Robert Fulghum ] [ Piper's learned to find contentment through her Lord Christ and in her outreach to others. ] We've all done it, looking at someone else's life, career, hair or whatever and felt diminished because of our misguided belief that our's isn't their's, that (if only) 'we 'could' or 'had' feeling. The other side of the fence syndrome! It's a terrible feeling that leaves us desiring what we don't have, feeling that our lives aren't enough, that we must not be as successful, smart, or beautiful, or that where we live isn't fulfilling us. [ Victoria used to define herself through her corporate career and was never satisfied, always lo

Connecting with God & Discovering Your Purpose...

[ The most important thing is this: to be ready at any moment to sacrifice what you are for what you could become. ~Charles Dickens ] [I have been bent and broken, but I hope into a better shape. ~Charles Dickens] In my experience and ever growing relationship with the Lord, the only way to learn how to create a truly purposeful path in life is to step back, slow down, (I know it's hard but it's necessary) and get connected to the Lord God. That is the only formula that's been effective. :) [ Both Veronica & Ann came to the LivingThruGrace House feeling trapped behind the bars of their own lives, blind to the ways for effective transformation. Little did they know God's light was surroundi

[ the Ladies grab a quick but nutritious bite at the airport ( yep, a morning salad with potatoes Mmm mmm! ] [ These ladies are Tramming it! ] [ Danica showing off! :D ] [ The Crew went to meet a friend at Google, then some photo fun by the bridge! ] [ Friendship bonds grow as they're able to have some hang time sans all the other crew members. ] A little gossiping in the San Francisco Streets and then some good eats! Lunch outdoors. It looks delish! chili cheese fries!!! ] [ Uh Oh, looks like Danica & Piper ran into a shark at the marina!! I hope they didn't get caught up in a Sharknado storm! :D Nerd alert :0 ] [ The ladies saved room after lunch for some San Francisco snackin'; sharin
