  • Healthy Snacks for Road Trips

    My family has spent a lot of time away from home these past few weeks. Between visiting my sister in Wyoming and spending time with my in-laws, it feels like I've hardly been home.

  • The Enemy of My Soul

    Why should I give way to temptations, that the evil one have place in my heart to destroy my peace and afflict my soul?

    I used to hate bananas, especially overripe ones.  I thought they were slimy and disgusting.   I would avoid anything banana-flavored, even candy.  I even had a dislike for the movie Herbie Goes Bananas.  Yes, I hated bananas with a passion. Over the past year, though, my taste buds have changed.  Don't ask me how!…

    After searching for something new to try making at home, I had a strange thought: Applesauce.  I've been using it some of my cooking, and thought I would try giving it a whirl. The question: Where to begin?  I did some online searching and found several different recipes, but they all had added sugar, cinnamon, vanilla,…

  • Being Happy in Your Season of Life

    I recently had to return some things to my local Hobby Lobby.  I walked into the store and was not prepared for: scarecrows.  Pumpkins.  Home decor saying "Give Thanks".  Turkeys wearing pilgrim hats.  Now, I'm used to seeing Halloween decor come out after Labor Day, or even as early as Independence Day.  But here it…

  • My Family’s First Fun Run

    How do you prepare little children to get ready for a race of their own?  A few months ago, I started training for a half marathon.  Of course, I couldn't just leave my children at home alone, so they were blessed to come with me on a few training runs.  I started training at the…
