This review is from: A Homemade Year: The Blessings of Cooking, Crafting, and Coming Together (Paperback)
Jerusalem is, above all things, beautifully honest with her struggles, the reality of life, and her relationship with the Lord. This is by far my favorite quote from the book, and it sums up her message.
"Looking back, it occurs to me now that God uses food and the domestic rituals that surround it to call me into his presence. It is his love language to me."
This isn't a book that will make you feel as if you're not measuring up with the Joneses (or in this case, the Greers). This book calls our domestic lives into focus within the context of the Lord and our own personal spirituality. Instead of telling you what you ought to be doing, Jerusalem will make you feel as if you have PERMISSION to cook beautiful food on Saturday instead of doing laundry.
How's that for mind blowing?
This book is inspiring. I don't say that just because she's my friend. I say that because as a (hopefully) Godly woman, it's nice to take a step back and look at my domestic life with a different set of lenses. A rosier pair of glasses.
So please, buy a copy. Buy a whole bunch of copies.
