Where Faith, Food and Life Converge

A Letter to my Adult Prodigal

  To my Beloved Child, There are always two sides to every story.  Two perspectives, if you will.  Before you read anything else, know this: I love you. I will always love you. Until the day I die, nothing will change that, and I do […]

    And isn’t it easier to be happy than not?  Truly.  Think about it.  When you’re happy, you’re energized, motivated, focused, relaxed and relatively carefree.  When you’re not happy, you’re lethargic, you want to hide, you want to procrastinate, and it’s often hard to […]

Life is like a garden, you never know what you’re going to get!  I love my little old man tomato, and the family that came before him (one of his uncles had a big chin!)  It is fun to go out and see each day’s […]

Easy Homemade Veggie Wash

I kind of live in the boonies.  No, not like the tundra of Alaska or anything, but if I want to get to a “real” shopping/dininng area (as in Target, movie theaters, Old Navy, shoe stores, froyo, Panera, fabric & craft stores, Home Depot, etc…) I […]

I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July holiday!  We’ve gone to the same place to see fireworks for the past 10 years or so, and we thought we’d have to cancel this year because we’ve had nothing but RAIN for the last […]

Hope for Parents of Prodigals

I have a love/hate relationship with Facebook.  Despite my misgivings about it, it remains one of the few ways I can keep in touch with friends and family I might not otherwise connect with on a regular basis. To that end, I still log in, […]
