RECIPES FOR A BEAUTIFUL LIFE By Julie Keye and Madaline Hall

 RECIPES FOR A BEAUTIFUL LIFE by Julie Keye and Madaline Hall is the perfect book for that special lady, whether she be your mother, sister, aunt, best friend, even your co-worker.

This book is full of beautiful pictures that will make you ooohhh and ahhhhh and even chuckle and maybe sniffle a bit as they bring back memories of places you might have been or just an old memory of a child or family member.

Recipes For A Beautiful Life is another example of self-publishing. Julie and Madaline put together the book with the help of www.booksurge.com who has now merged with www.createspace.com, a subdivision of Amazon.com. (Engaging Thoughts was self-published through www.createspace.com).

Recipes For A Beautiful Life treats the reader with wonderful pictures accompanied with verses from the Bible (primarily Psalms and Proverbs). In Part 2 of the book there are home recipes for beauty treatments for that lovely lady in your life. I haven't had an opportunity to try any yet, but I intend to as soon as I get the moment!

Here is a little about the authors, Madaline Hall and Julie Keye.....

Madaline Hall was born and raised in New York City. She married and has two children. She entered the business community as an insurance broker working for a major company and was co-owner for Crafty Concepts, a craft business.

Her avocation for years has been her interest in all things literary. She currently lives on Long Island, New York and is dedicated to photography and writing inspirational works.

Julie Keye was born and grew up in New York City. She entered the film industry as an editor, working on many feature films. She married and has a daughter who served as a missionary in Japan.

In recent years, residing in California, she has written children's stories and film scripts, and most recently, collaborated with her childhood friend, Ms. Hall, on books with inspirational reach.

They met when they were eleven years of age and have been friends ever since. They feel truly blessed to enjoy a great friendship, and to have found God in their lives.

Recipes For a Beautiful Life can be purchased through Amazon.com at a reasonable price. This will make a real nice gift for Christmas or any other special occasion.

This book was graciously given to me by the authors, for review purposes. I am under no obligation to provide a positive review. But I am happy to have been able to do so. May the Lord bless Julie and Madaline for this lovely book.
