My Review of God Hears Her:


This book is a delightful read! 

I enjoyed thumbing through these pages because each page was filled with a devotional for that day, starting in January and ending in December. There are not years dated in this book so the reader can read these daily devotionals anytime of any year.

The devotionals are short and to the point. They start with a Bible verse, pack a powerful punch and end with the writer's first name. I liked it how the publisher only included the first name of each devotional writer because it gave the book a personal touch, making it feel like each devotional was a short and sweet letter sent to you by a dear friend.

This book makes a wonderful gift that will encourage the heart, inspire the soul and educate the mind. I'd recommend it for anyone: new believers, seasoned believers and those who may have lost their relationship with their First Love (Jesus Christ).

God Hears Her is a beautiful reminder that there is a God who cares and He's there for you. But not only is He there for you, He hears and answers your prayers!

A truly beautiful read well-worth five stars!

‘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.

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

2 cup 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.
