Recipes for a Beautiful Life by Julie Keye & Madeline Hall REVIEW

Each good day is a gift from God! A life open to God and filled with the beauty around you, sharing it with those you love, and finding time to relax so you can be the best you can be: these are the 
"Recipes for a Beautiful Life"

This is another quick and fun read. But if you take time to "ooh" and "Ahh" over your favorite pictues it'll take you a while. My daughter had fun pointing out her favorite pictures. One of her favorites was of the deer( I think it was on page 63 or something). I thought it was neat how a biblical scripture matched each picture; but there was a few that made me scratch my head. 
Now, what made this book even more fun is that it is split into two parts: Part One is cute/funny pictures with scriptures and Part Two is packed with at-home spa treatments. The Authors explain  different herbs to use in your bath and for what reason. There are also a lot of facial mask remedies. For dry to oily skin and practically everything in-between.
From looking at the pictures to seeing all the different at-home spa treatments, this book was fun and very informative . I Would recommend this book for men and women no matter the age. And your kids or niece(s) or Nephew(s) will have fun with it too.
