Wait Until Then Is A Masterpiece For Children About Heaven

                  Definitely my favorite Tyndale read this year, Randy Alcorn's "Wait Until Then" supersedes all other books for children on the subject of Heaven.  Perfectly written, in easy to understand fashion and it has beautiful illustrations.  This sweet book explores the promises of Heaven, finding positive meaning in our trials and what happens when we die.  These in depth subjects are presented in such a tender way through the story of a Grandfather "Gramps" who has cancer  and his beloved grandson "Nathan" who struggles with spinal bifida.  In true Randy Alcorn style, the best selling author offers a ray of hope and joy to his readers.  Always backed by scripture, this book of only 32 pages offers numerous uplifting spiritual lessons.  I highly recommend this book to anyone facing a giant in their life to gain perspective and courage.   Excellent Read!

Denise's Lasagna Featuring Arla Dofino Havarti Cheese~

So I get this incredibly awesome campaign from Bzz Agent to review Arla Dofino cheeses which are out of this world.  They are well known for their Gouda; Havarti; Edam; Munster & Fontina cheese.  I found them in the gourmet end cap at Kroger's in Michigan.  Here is a link to  Other Locations .  Keep in mind that they may not be located alongside regular cheeses in the dairy section, because these are special you may have to ask for assistance.  I decided on trying the Havarti Cheese.  It makes for the most delicious, healthy snack that your family will ask for over and over.  My husband and I  melted the havarti cheese on crackers.  We loved this so much that I decided to try the Havarti cheese in our family favorite lasagna.  I will never make lasagna without Arla Dofino Haverti Cheese again, it is that stellar!  I take pride in that this is my recipe which I will share with you below (minus my secret spaghetti sauce recipe).
                                Denise's Lasagna
   Recipe for spaghetti sauce with meat
   1/2 lb of lasagna noodles
   1 tbs salt
   1 tbs olive oil
   1 lb of Arla Dofino Haverti Cheese slices
   1 lb ricotta cheese
   1/2 lb mozzarella cheese
   1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
    Cook noodles in boiling salted water until tender.  Drain and add oil.  Arrange in shallow 2 1/2 quart baking dish, making 3 layers each of cooked noodles; havarti cheese; ricotta cheese; mozzarella cheese; sauce and grated cheese.  Bake in oven at 325 degrees for 45 minutes.  Let cool before serving.
Serve with hot rolls or Italian bread and butter.
Now that's Italian.  Your family will be begging for more.
With Arla Dofino Cheeses you can make nutritious meals all of the time and that get's an A+ from me!

Sundar Singh's Conversion to Christainty

Sundar Singh was to become a very prominent spiritual teacher  and The Wisdom of The Sadhu is a compilation of his thoughts, parables and experiences. Born and raised in India as a Hindu, he discovers the teachings of Christ that will forever change him. Sundar lives much like a vagabond, needing only his strong faith to lead and guide him.  Each breathe he takes is to spread his new belief and to encourage others about the Love of God.  Kim Corner does a superb job in editing and organizing Singh's musings to create this book.  I was given the opportunity to read for Handlebar Publications.
