Today is an exciting day for my sweet friend Marian, aka, Miss Mustard Seed.



Her book, Inspired You: Letting God Breathe New Life Into Your Heart and Home has officially been released for purchase. I have the privilege of knowing Marian personally. She is every bit as Godly and as genuine as she comes across on her blog. Her heart is BIG and her love for all of you is not artificially generated by a desire for big numbers. She is the real deal and her sweet spirit is poured out all through out her book.



Marian sent me a copy of her book to preview a few weeks ago.I immediately opened up the package and started reading. I literally ate up every word. She did such an amazing job making you, the reader, ย feel as though she is sitting across the kitchen table with you having a heart to heart. Her desire for you to uncover your God given talents and to inspire you to create a joy filled home on a budget is laid out with beautiful photography, her witty sense of humor and easy to understand projects.
