♪He's got the whole world in His hands♪...

and it is a
very BIG world!
Your Guide to the Grand Canyon (True North Series)
This beaUtifully illustrated book is a part of the True North Series.
I picked up the book just for a brief flip I am,
 about everything from the Canyon's fossils and history, wildlife and vegetation to interesting places to stay and check out while there.
"Great are the works of the Lord;
they are studied by all who delight in them.
Splendid and majestic is His work...
He has made His wonders to be remembered..."
Psalm 111:2-4
I love the beautiful pages with verses
it truly did call my heart to worship Creator God!

"This unique guide to the Grand Canyon takes you on a journey that will show you evidence from the Canyon that is consistent with what the Bible teaches concerning a global flood just a few thousand years ago."
Ken Ham, President of Answers in Genesis
Most of all I am being impressed
all over again by how amAzing God is.
Did you know that they hold worship services at the Grand Canyon?
This book has 26 cool fold-out pages packed full of interesting if you are planning a trip, this is a must read before or on the way ☺
...and if you can't go now, you can travel these pages.

speaking of the world...
this little (the size of a Christmas bulb) 
60 piece puzzle globe from Master Books
has provided much
entertainment and (challenge) ☺
the handy-dandy enclosed guide
was helpful. 
Interesting topics of conversation we covered during assembly:
how God sees the completed picture/plan
that sometimes it helps to have a different perspective
teamwork helps...
a little stand is included for the globe to sit on
as well as a gold cord (you could hang it from a Christmas tree as an ornament!).
We found that it worked best to insert the "hanger" in the top
and work down.
The last piece is hardest to fit in.
Did I mention it comes in a nice little "gift" box?
I plan to purchase more of these to give as gifts.
I also had the opportunity to explore
Yellowstone and the Grand Teton National Parks
via this thorough guide book...
Your Guide to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks (True North Series)
what you will find in this True North guide:
Perpective (why these parks are important from a BWV)
How to see the park
What evidence will you see?
Examine everything carefully
Understanding the parks
and lots of pictures ☺
(I think these guides are appropriate to be read and enjoyed
by children and adults of all ages!

"in the beginning God created"

see the beautiful pictures?

"To see and enjoy its (Yellowstone Grand Teton Ecosystem) beauty
and to be amazed at its wonders draws a heart to the Creator's skill
 and at the same time to the Creator's holiness." Pastor Don Landis
 David got it right in Psalm 121:1-2..."I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
from where shall my help come?"...(many come to these places for inspiration and refreshment but fall short of what this area teaches)
"My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth."
I received these items for the purpose of review.
