Nourish your family and your soul. We all need a few minutes each day for relaxation and renewal. This daybook takes the everyday chore of meal planning and transforms it into an opportunity to celebrate food and spirit, soothe your soul, and nourish your family. Each day offers a new reflection--a Bible verse, comforting quote, touching letter, or poem--and a menu for simple, balanced eating.
