Yesterday I repeatedly heard the words “He is making all things new” as a song kept playing in my mind, and then several places I went to–e-mail, internet, etc. the verse popped up for me to read.  It was clearly not a coincidence. Revelation 21:5 English Standard Version (ESV) 5 And he who was seated on the […]

Hi everyone!  We start school here on Monday.  One of the most stressful parts of getting back into the routine is meal planning and preparing.  I have started a Facebook group in which I’ve posted a grocery list today for next week’s weeknight meals–fresh and gluten free.  I will be posting instructions for prepping ahead […]

Today’s gifts that give showcases World Vision, Compassion and Samaritan’s Purse and their gift catalogs.  Many of you have heard of sponsoring a child through World Vision or Compassion, but their gift catalog is completely different.  You can purchase a 1-time gift of a goat, chickens, clean water, a cow, etc. that changes a family’s […]
