Where Faith, Food and Life Converge

Monday Mondays 9.21.15

  This past week we did something we have rarely done over the course of our lives – gone to the fair!  Above and beyond that… we even entered something in the fair, and came away with ribbons!  WooHoo! In April, we bought a couple […]

Monday Mondays – Goodbye Summer

What exactly are the dog days of summer?  Are they gone already?  I don’t know about where you live, but fall showed up this past weekend.  As I sit here in my sweat pants, hoodie and a blanket on my lap, I welcome the heat […]

Why Foundations Matter

Somewhere, buried in the foundational concrete in our home, is a shoebox size Rubbermaid container. And in that container is a Bible. And highlighted in the Bible are these verses:  “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise […]

Making Room For Stillness

A few months ago, I started using a bullet journal in a bid to reorganize my time.  Before, as a stay-at-home homeschool mom, I was in a pretty good rhythm as far as my time management skills were concerned. Once I started working, even though […]

Grace is Hard, And Yet…

Lately, I’ve been having some conversations with friends and family about, well… friends and family.  If you’ve read my previous posts about my prodigal, you’ll understand that he weighs heavy on my heart. Despite giving the situation to God, it feels as if someone’s left […]

Monday Mondays 8.10.15

How to Kick Up a Basic Viniagrette

When I can, I grow various lettuces in my garden, and when it’s too hot or cold to grow any, I go to Costco or Sam’s and buy them in bulk. Yeah, I’m the weirdo buying the shoebox size container of spinach and the 6-pack of romaine. […]
