What is Christianity all about? a book review of Radical by David PLatt

Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream   -     
        By: David Platt
I received this book from Multnomah Bloger for Books. They send you a book, you read it and then you write a review. I thought why not read it and see what Platt has to say.

I could read the first few pages and then I had to go find a pen so I could under line some of his statements, you know just so I could go back to them. I agree with what He says that we have to choose what we as Americans consider to be a common Christian that only goes to church and then life as normal or we choose to do what Jesus did. Reach the world, your community for Christ.

Platt challenges us to not just be a Christian that does nothing, but to be a Radical Christian that will do what Jesus did to reach the lost. Most of us as Christians don't want to get out of our comfort zones. Platt challenges us to do just that.

I liked the book, it made me take a look at my life and see what I could do different to reach others for Christ.

Pick the book up and take the challenge.

Merry Christmas from My Family to Yours

Its the night before, the night before Christmas

Its the night before, the night before Christmas
and all through the House
everyone was screaming, even the mice
there was so much that needed to be done
time was short, and no one to help
Last minute shopping, baking and wrapping

OK, This is what I am feeling like today!   So much needs to be done, and I don't know how it will all get done, but I am sure in the spirit of the Holiday My family will come to my aid...

Merry Christmas!

Holiday Baking

I have started my holiday baking.  Since my family loves peanut butter, I have decided  to try a new recipe. 
I love finding new recipes.   Searching  the Internet is the funnest, fastest, and easiest way to find what you need.  I found this recipe for: (although I changed some of the recipe a little)

Peanut Butter Balls

Here's the recipe:

1 cup powder sugar
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
3 tablespoon butter (soften)

Mix the three ingredients together.  Mix well.  Shape into 1 inch balls, place on a waxed cookie sheet.  Place in freezer for 20 min.

(This is the part that I changed)
Take 3 squares of Chocolate Bark and 1 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips, melt in the microwave.  Dip each ball and place on the wax papered  sheet.  I place my dipped balls in the freezer until they are dried. 

It makes 30. 

My family is in Love with them! Now, If I can keep some around for Christmas!

Thrifty Monday

Trying to save money? With Christmas and New Year's around the Cornor, we are all trying to save money. This is what brings me to my new Thrifty Monday post.

I have been on a search to find ways to be thrifty and save some money. I have heard that if you cook from scratch that you can save money. I can't see a whole lot of savings at one time, but it is there. Hey, every penny counts right!

My family loves Mexican food. They love Salsa. I make homemade salsa that is cheep, cheep, cheep! Here is my money saving recipe.
1 can crushed tomatoes (24or 28 oz can)
1/2 bunch of cilantro
1 yellow or red onion
jalapenos ( one to two or how many you want) Watch out it could get very hot.
1 lime

In a food processor, chop all veggies together. Open the can of tomatoes and stir together. Add salt and garlic powder to taste. Squeeze the juice of one lime into salsa. Stir well and enjoy.

I keep the salsa in the fridge. Best part of all, it is cheap, cheap, cheap. (around $2.00 for all of it!)

Radical, what does this mean?

I have began reading the book Radical by David Platt. Now this is not a book review so don't worry. I read the title and thought, What does this word really mean?
The dictionary says:
1. arising from, going to the root or source; basic
2. departing from the usual or customary; extreme
Getting back to the basics of Christianity, is that what he will be getting at in his book. Mind you that I have only read a few pages, but what a thought, departing from the culture of today's churches and getting back to what Jesus told us in the Word. The basics! I see that, yes, today's culture is different than what it once was. But the Word of God is the same, it does not change. So why should we? Basic Christianity, where we help each other, uplift each other, work in our community to bring people into the family of God. That is what it is all about! I hope and pray that maybe some of this is what he is talking about. We will see, I will post something later after I have finished reading it.... so until then...

Scripture of the Month

1 Thessalonians 5:24
Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.

He is faithful to do all He has promised in his Word. I'm so glad that he is faithful to meet our needs and to give us our wants. There is no one Greater than OUR LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST!
