Book Review: Gods At War

Gods At War
Defeating the Idols that Battle For Your Heart
by Kyle Idleman











This book is about everyday things in life that we allow to become our "gods" in life instead of the one true God.

The book speaks about how we allow subjects such as

Success, Entertainment, Sex, Achievement, Romance, Money, etc

to become the centerpiece/s in our lives. At the end of each topic, Kyle gives a summary and some ideal ways we can overcome these Gods
that battle for our hearts.


The book was interesting to me and held my attention, but at the same time I felt that it was also very repetitive. But, maybe that is what it takes
to get something like this through our minds.

Many of these hit close to home to me; for example worrying all the time about finances instead of being content and realizing that God always provides.

Kyle also adds numerous Bible verses within each topic that go hand in hand with the topic at hand.


I know everyone struggles with at least one thing in this book, so I would recommend it to other readers.

Since I feel that the book is a little repetitive I would only give this book at 4 out of 5 rating.

Half of a Year Old Already. Time Is Flying!!

I can't believe that our little girl is already over half a year old. The time is going by so fast! Will it please slow down!? (I do look forward to her talking to us though, but we are in no hurry!!)

I haven't written a blog post in a while because I am lazy, and a slacker. I know, I know. Sad!!

So much has happened in six months that I don't know where to begin. I have watched our little girl go from being a fragile little baby that can barely control her head, to a big girl who is now sitting up, eating solid foods, reaching for things, and becoming her own little personality. I have a feeling she is going to be one funny / sweet little girl.

I can NOT begin to explain the amount of Love I have for this little girl. Each day the Love only grows stronger. I just wish each day would slow down just a little!

I'll try to report back soon!

Quick Dinner Recipe - Tebow Family Pizza Pie

The wife shared a recipe the other night that I made for dinner. I recommend this quick and easy recipe for any moms and dads that are in a hurry for a quick meal. I would think you can add any ingredients to make it your own. We stuck to the recipe here except we used pre-made spaghetti sauce. Here is the Tebow Pizza Pie. Next time I plan to make a breakfast version of this. Om nom nom.

We stole the recipe from http://www.tasteofhome.com/

Tebow Pizza Pie Recipe


Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground turkey or beef
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1 envelope Italian-style spaghetti sauce mix
  • 1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 tube (12 ounces) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions

In a large skillet, cook and stir beef and pepper over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the sauce mix, tomato paste and water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer for 7-10 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally. 
 
Separate biscuits; press onto the bottom and up the sides of a greased 9-in. deep-dish pie plate to form a crust. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese; fill with meat mixture.

Sprinkle mozzarella cheese and remaining Parmesan cheese over top. 

Bake at 400° for 15-18 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted.  

Yield: 6 servings.
