Sun-Dried Tomato Turkey Wraps

These Sun-Dried Tomato Turkey Wraps make a tasty and easy meal on a warm day—perfect in the spring and summer seasons! They have lots of good and healthy things in them…lean turkey, a mix of baby spinach and lettuce, julienne cut sun-dried tomatoes (from an oil-packed jar)—or roasted red pepper strips, cucumber strips, and some sliced olives and/or red onion. And some cheese—I use Muenster or Provolone, but you could use your favorite cheese slices. All this is wrapped up in a tomato-basil flour tortilla!

Book Review: Anything Is Possible

I received a review copy of this book; all opinions expressed are mine.

“Right this second, you may be in the fight of your life. Where what you see is impossible. Where the scans are bad. Where your prodigal is not ever coming home. Where your marriage is beyond reconciliation. Where that mountain in your business is insurmountable. If that’s you, don’t fear and don’t give up,” writes author and pastor Joby Martin in his book Anything Is Possible: How Nine Miracles of Jesus Reveal God’s Love for You (Faith Words, hardcover).

Martin begins his book by sharing his experience of seeing the Empty Tomb in Jerusalem: “I remember standing here. In this empty tomb. The greatest and most undeniable miracle of all time. Jesus was crucified. Dead. Buried. And on the third day He was raised from that tomb…. Which is why I wrote this book. A book about the miracles of Jesus…. This tomb is empty. And because it is, anything is possible. Anything.” Martin adds, “While I’m about to spend nearly three hundred pages encouraging you to believe and pray like crazy for miracles, we aren’t simply chasing miracles. We’re chasing the One who performs them.” Reading about the miracles in this book that Jesus performs helps us not only understand how great God’s love is for us, but why we need to seek the One who performs miracles, not the miracles themselves.
