Welcome to the blog!

As I journey through this life, I am learning  to answer my calling, step into my purpose and to use what I have been given. I want to be a good caretaker of my gifts, skills, time, and resources. 

In this blog, you will read about faith, food, and family.

 

“One who is faithful in a very little is also faithful in much.” – Luke 16:10

When God Calls You, Don’t Settle

When God Calls You, Don’t Settle

Well, I mentioned in my previous post, Why I Decided To Take A 21 Day Social Media Fast,  that I fully expected to hear God speak to me. And He is. Shortly, after that post, I decided to listen to a sermon. The Spirit pressed on my heart to listen to Christine Caine....

Why I Decided To Take A 21 Day Social Media Fast

Why I Decided To Take A 21 Day Social Media Fast

Yesterday was Day 1 of my 21 day fast from social media. Many people have been asking me why I decided to do this.  Especially because the timing doesn't make sense. After all, I am about to launch my first online course. Going ghost from social media is the last...

“Eat Your Veggies!” Chocolate Banana Bread

“Eat Your Veggies!” Chocolate Banana Bread

Any mamas out there have trouble getting your kids to eat more (or any) vegetables? Veggies have been a hard sell in this house. My oldest has sensory issues, so getting him to eat ANYTHING has been a challenge since he was born. He certainly will not eat vegetables...

Zara’s Room

This post contains affiliate links I love interior decorating! I always have. Even as a child, I would find new ways to decorate my room, moreso as a teenager. I would find things at yard sales and spruce them up and use them. By the time I had my own place, interior...

God On Speed Dial

God On Speed Dial

Since January, I have noticed how my prayer life has shifted. It's richer, more personal. It feels more like a conversation rather than rambling a list of requests. Today is one of those days where God wants to challenge me a little bit. I have started to read through...

Easy Lemon Garlic Chicken with Mashed Cauliflower

I am all about keeping things simple these days! There was a time before I gave birth to three of the pickiest eaters in the entire world, that I actually enjoyed making elaborate meals. Well, those days are now reserved for dinner parties and when we host the...

What I Have To Give Is Enough For God

What I Have To Give Is Enough For God

I'm thinking back on the story in Luke 9 of Jesus feeding the large crowd of people. All of the gospels tell this story, but I love the little detail found in John 6:8: "There is a boy here who has five barley loaves and two fish..."  There is a crowd of tired, hungry...

Starting Over With a New Mindset

Starting Over With a New Mindset

This year has been so difficult, and we aren't even through February yet. My life in general is pretty good. My family is healthy and well provided for. I really have no legitimate reasons to complain. My struggle hasn't been a physical one, but spiritual. As I have...

Chicken Noodle Soup

Chicken Noodle Soup

This week, my husband has been battling the flu and I've been praying that no one else gets it. So far we are in the clear. I am not a huge fan of chicken soup, but it's one of my husband's favorite comfort foods, so I whipped up a quick and easy batch to help him...
