Love Letters from God: Bible Stories, written by Glenys Nellist and Illustrated by Sophie Allsopp

            The book, Love Letters from God: Bible Stories, is by far one of my favorite children’s books that I have seen in a while. It was written by Glenys Nellist and illustrated by Sophie Allsopp. Each time that I pick it up I literally have a smile from the inside out. Not only is it written well with the amazing art to enhance the pages but also the lift-the-flap love letters from God make one feel so special. It says, “Your Love Letter from God” and then when you lift the flap, there is a section to write your child’s name on the line within the letter. I can see how this will make kids feel as if God had handwritten each page just for them. This is the point of the Bible is it not; to make each person understand that it is one, amazing, love letter to the world!

            The Bible stories give a brief outline of the book of the Bible from beginning to end, which describes perfectly God’s love story to us. Not only does each Bible story have a love letter from God but there is also a section titled: God’s Wonderful Words to You, which gives a short verse that the kids can easily memorize. At the very end the kids have an invitation, which invites them to join Jesus’ team, as well as a section to write a love note back to God.

            If I had the choice as a Children’s Pastor, I would make sure that every family in my church who has kids would be able to add this book to their family Bible reading. It teaches anyone, especially kids, that the Bible is a love letter to each of us.

            I received this book for free from and these opinions are my own.

Younique Party!!... my review on Younique Mineral Touch Cream Foundation

 My Sister is a Younique Presenter. Please go follow her blog here:

Please join my online party through the 19th of October. This is something that has become special for my sister and myself during the passing of our Mom, who would have loved to enjoy this makeup with us. Read my review below of the Younique Mineral Touch Cream Foundation and join our online party:

Touch Cream Foundation

Younique Mineral Touch Cream Foundation is by far one of my most favorite cream foundations that I have used.

Let me be the first to tell you that I am generally picky about what goes onto my face. I have tried products from the cheapest to some top of the line products throughout the years. I have done everything from making my own facial products to getting expert advice on my skin sensitivities. This is why my favorite products are good for the health of my skin and the health of my body.

The Younique Mineral Touch Cream Foundation feels like I am moisturizing my skin without it feeling greasy. It looks natural while covering up some of my skin imperfections. It evens out my skin tone on days where my skin is either dry or slightly greasy. I am thankful that it lasts throughout my entire day, even a day full of many tears. Unlike other foundations I have used before, it blends well, keeps my skin breakout free, and makes me feel beautiful as well as healthy.

For those of you that package matters as well, please note this small detail: The container that it comes in has a plastic cover inside with a makeup pad that fits perfectly on top. This helps to protect the cream foundation from contamination and growth of bacteria that occurs in makeup products.

Younique Mineral Touch Cream Foundation is worth every penny. It is by far one of my most favorite cream foundations that I have used.
