Jarm Vee5 Stars Out Of 5Cozy up to this elegant book and be inspired!December 27, 2019Jarm VeeQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a stunning coffee table book - it truly deserves a place all year long. Especially for those snowy winter nights, or times when you need a bit of cozy, gorgeous photos, and inspirational words from designers and the Word of God. Read a page a day, or indulge and read all the way to the end. No matter the season, this book will take you to a happy place - and you won't want to leave!
VeraNorth CarolinaAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Lovely book and beautiful devotional thoughtsNovember 20, 2019VeraNorth CarolinaAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Again, the Heart & Home book is simply beautiful and just packed with lovely decorating scenes that will help you envision how you can take what you have, or get something to add to what you already have and create a loving, lovely and relaxing home that is welcoming to friends and family.
Victoria Duerstock has created a book that is a true devotional and combined it with her decorating skills and suggestions and tips. You won't feel intimidated by this professional decorator. True, we can't all have homes filled with the lovely furniture and accouterments that are shown, but the tips and sweet presentation help us to realize that it is the loving atmosphere we create that counts and brings the Heart to the Home.
Each daily devotional has a topic and related Scripture. Much of the focus is on the nativity and the age old stories we all know and love. But we are drawn to thoughts about our "Mighty God" (page.55) where the statement, "There is nothing in my life that God's Might cannot conquer" fills one's heart and soul with joy and comfort at this magnificent promise.
And then later in the book we are encouraged to "Bear Each Other's Burdens" and the tip for this page is not about decorating, it is about bearing other's burdens - a widow who needs some help, a person who needs a meal, someone who needs your company and a meal. Encourage! (page 179)
And Ms. Duerstock also addresses being mindful of "The Joy Snatchers." Oh there are so many Joy Snatchers. Let God's love pervade your being and chase the Joy Snatchers.
This makes a lovely book for your own home to place on a table in your living room or on a bedside table in a guest bedroom. It is also a lovely gift for a lady to whom you wish to be a bearer of God's Light and His Joy. May you reap bountifully from your own ownership and the sharing and gifting of these God directed thoughts with others.
