4forFRIDAY by ACHUCKAllen December 22, 2017
Each Friday I offer up at least 4 recommended reads, listens, learnings, gadgets or reviews. These are not necessarily faith-based or church-related but they each have encouraged or helped me in some way. I trust that they might do the same for you! Please feel free to leave your comments or share this 4forFRIDAY!
Here is This Week’s 4forFRIDAY December 22, 2017
A Really Good Foodie Stop: Blue Top in Chamblee, GA
We’ve made a couple of trips to BlueTop and love it. If you want to sit outside by the fire or sit in this quaint little joint in Chamblee, you’ll enjoy some serious sandwiches. I’ve had the burger – great, the cod sandwich – unbelievable, and the lamb sloppy joe – out of this world! BLUETOP is the newest addition to the burgeoning Chamblee restaurant scene. Our name comes from the taxi stand that originally operated on the property in the late 1950’s. With an eye towards the past and some good ole fashion ingenuity, we happened upon an old 1969 45′ Global Van Lines moving van we purchased for $500.00 and decided to outfit it as our first class kitchen. The rest of the restaurant is designed to make you feel at home whether on our large outdoor patio or taking in a game of bocce or corn hole with some friends.
A truly Life-Altering Book: Journey’s with the Messiah by Michael Belk
Imagine a rather simple book with a handful of the most powerful lessons on the Holy Scriptures (The Parable Edition) and captivating photos and sets that capture the power of Jesus in His time on Earth and our time today. Every home should have this book!
An Inexpensive Tablet that Packs a Punch: Fire HD 8 Tablet with Alexa
You won’t be giving away your iPad Pro with this addition, but at $50, it’s a workhorse for reading, surfing, and email. If like me, you take full advantage of cloud-based services, like Google Docs, Sheets and Slides, along with Googe Drive and Google Photos, you don’t have to count on this smallish 16gig machine…but if you do, add a MiniSD card and immediately expand your memory. I love this thing!
A Great Resource and Christmas Gift for Your Wife: CSB She Reads Truth Bible
Guys, this is a sure-fire hit for your wife or wife to be (preferably not at the same time). The She Reads Truth Bible aims to live at the intersection of beauty, goodness, and Truth. Featuring devotionals by the She Reads Truth team, and Scripture reading plans that include supplemental passages for deeper understanding, this Bible invites every woman to count themselves among the She Reads Truth community of “Women in the Word of God every day.”
