I wanted to share a thought of the week, some of my favourites that I have found, this will be a Monday thing for a few weeks.

I sat down with this book when I was facing some ugly anxiety and reading this book calmed me down, I took notes, wrote out scriptures and prayers that she shared in the book.
She writes a very relatable book. The topics and the way that she details then they're going to be felt deeply with in the reader. You could say we have been there and done that just as the author describes her life too. It's good to know other people have had these spiritually dry desert periods in their lives like we have had. And she gives us Clues how to identify them and guide post how to be patient during the silent times. Easy to read not overly complex but straight to the heart. Anyone can see themselves in this book. Good investment.
The stories are written in a simple yet descriptive manner, and an early reader will have no problem reading the text. Some of the stories include dialogue, and they would be fun for families to read together aloud.
The book covers the stories of Abraham and the three visitors, Elijah being fed by an angel, Daniel and the lions, Mary and the Nativity Story, Jesus and the little children, Jesus’ death and resurrection, and John’s dream. Massari’s illustrations, with a bit of abstraction, remind me of something I might see in an art museum.
I think this was a great idea for a book, highlighting the stories of angels in the Bible. The book will help young children familiarize themselves with the Scriptures. Though the book compiles Biblical accounts of angels, the text points to the story of Jesus, showing how he lived, and died, and saved mankind. This Bible storybook would be great tool for a family devotional or bedtime story.
