EAT YOUR PEAS Faithfully...Book Review

EAT YOUR PEAS Faithfully by Cheryl Karpen is a simply delightful book. This book is a "gift book" if you will; the cover states that it's a "3-minute forever book". The art by Sandy Fougner is beautiful, and even the paper it's printed on has a wonderful texture and richness to it.

You could view this book two ways: as written from God to you, or as written to a loved one, be it family member, spouse, child. It's about faithfulness, and standing by someone through thick and thin. Many pages have a Scripture verse on it that goes along with the "simple truths and happy insights."

One of my favorites says on one side of the book: "When God created you in His magnificence, He created a masterpiece." Then the opposing page says, "There is nobody else quite like you. Nope. Not anywhere. Not among all the six billion people who live on this earth. Your eyes, nose, fingers, heart and mind are uniquely yours. Undoubtedly, God is the artist of them all." And then under that is Psalm 139:13-14, "You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother's womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous--how well I know it!"

I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a unique wedding gift, anniversary gift, or even a gift to a friend who needs to know they are unconditionally loved. It's a beautiful book!
