BOOK REVIEW C Title: TONGUE PIERCED Author: Katie Farrell Rating: Genre: Christian Living, Health Released by: Thomas Nelson Reviewed by: Leah St John Release Date: Available Now reator of the popular lifestyle blog Dashing Dish (, Katie Farrell has created a devotional that focuses on all aspects of health - spiritual, mental, and physical. As such, in addition to including 71 individual devotionals, there are meal plans and recipes too. The devotionals throughout the book are thoughtful, encouraging, and yet concise, perfect for busy women who have little time on their hands. While each devotional is different in its content, the format remains the same throughout - each day begins with a piece of Scripture, followed by a relevant devotional writing, and conclude with a prayer at the end. Additionally, peppered throughout the book are encouraging and inspirational little notes titled “Dash of Inspiration”. It’s also well worth noting that Devotions For a Healthier You is a very high quality printing. The layout was well thought through, as there are gorgeous, vibrant photographs displayed on the books thick glossy pages, and a ribbon is also attached to help you keep your place. An ideal gift for the special lady in your life, or for personal use, Devotions For a Healthier You is a charming book. And with its lovely presentation and thoughtful content, it is pleasing to the eye as well as the mind. Reviewers Note: As a vegetarian (and an aspiring vegan), I personally wouldn’t make a number of the recipes included in this book there were a few meals that involved cooking meat (turkey, chicken, bacon, etc). But hey, not every book is going to suited to everyone’s dietary choices, right?! And that small part of the book didn’t take away from the overall high quality and value of the devotional (I would personally buy it just for the devotionals and attractive layout).
