FIVE Faith-Building Books for Your Summer Reading List

Travel & Leisure

When I was an Elementary School Teacher, I would do more reading in the summer. I rarely had time to do the things I loved, during the school year. After ten months of teaching, I loved including faith-building books that would restore and strengthen me in every way! 

I still have the habit of including faith-building books for my summer reading list. These are books, written by modern-day authors, that reference and apply scripture to daily living. They can be in the form of a personal testimony (in which the author shares his/her life experience and how God’s word has made a positive impact). Or, they can be a commentary type of study that explains scripture in a way that is applicable and relevant to today’s times. 

Delicious Summer Side Salads ~ My Top Five

Food & Home, Rachel Maria's Recipes

One of my favorite things about summer is having access to beautiful, fresh, and colorful produce! I don’t crave veggies nor salads, as much, in the winter months. For obvious reasons. I also feel that dinner is so much more enjoyable in the summer. Scott and I try to grill and dine outdoors, as often as possible, throughout the summer months. Typically, Scott prepares our meat or fish entree, on the grill. So, I have ample time to prepare the most delicious, summer side salads. 

Chicken Marsala Recipe

Believe it or not, there was a time that I didn’t care much for Chicken Marsala. Perhaps it was due to a bad experience, that I can’t even remember. Sometimes, all it takes is a party invitation, with just one thing on the menu, to force you into trying something, again. And, wouldn’t you know. I actually love Chicken Marsala! I can now say, from experience, that it’s all in the way it’s made.
