About the Author
Lovella Schellenberg enjoys farm life with her husband and family on the western coast of British Columbia. When she posted a family recipe for Paska, a Russian Mennonite Easter bread, on her blog in 2007, she didn't know it was the beginning of a cooking sensation that has come to be known as Mennonite Girls Can Cook. Sharing recipes and stories of hospitality, food, and faith, Schellenberg and the nine other Mennonite Girls Can Cook bloggers are the authors of two bestselling cookbooks and the subject of a play in theaters in the United States. They have appeared on numerous Canadian television segments, and donate all their author royalties to nourish children around the world.

There are ten ladies in the Mennonite Girls Can Cook group. Each devotion is written by a different lady and features wisdom from Scripture, thoughts and reflections, a short inspirational question for you to ponder through the day, and then ends with a little, yet meaningful prayer. The book goes through thirteen weeks, each containing seven devotions, one for each day. Each week also includes something entitled, "Family Journeys", in which a special story or memory is shared. And, last but not least, each week features a favorite recipe from the ladies.
As with the other two books from Mennonite Girls Can Cook, this one is exceptionally beautiful. I absolutely love the devotions and heartfelt thoughts and wise reflections. This is the perfect book for the coffee table, easy to pick up and read a bit here and a bit there. I look forward to going through this book over and over again, referring to it often.
**I received a copy of this book from the publisher in return for an honest review. All thoughts, ramblings and opinions in this post are my own. I was not required to share a positive review; I truly loved this book!**
The photos of the prepared food are simply gorgeous and will get one's mouth to watering and one's feet heading to the kitchen to cook up a batch of the easy and carefully tested recipes; some of which have been prepared for generations within the multiple authors Mennonite family kitchens.
The third book in this three-for-one single title? The dramatic, often heartbreaking yet consistently victorious stories of each of the ten authors ancestors and families. The photographs of generations past and their life stories of endurance in the toughest of time adds grit and glory to the the truth of the sustaining power of God, who does indeed gives us our daily bread and who is our Bread of Life through our every journey.
Even if you do not ever intend to cook or wish to read about God, this book offers a fascinating "up close and personal" account of Ukrainian/Russian/Mennonite history during the political upheaval during the late 1800s-early 1900s. The old photos and stories of those people who went through the turbulent times are told by their now adult children and grandchildren, the women of the Mennonite Girls Can Cook fame. Current events unfolding right now in Ukraine and Russia make these stories all the more visceral and compelling.
