Because He Loves Me – Chapter 3

One of the most freeing things in life is the ability to be who you are. Taking off the mask of perfection and revealing the “real you” to those around you is real freedom. There is no show to keep up with, no facade…we are flawed. But, in Christ, not…

Cooking Day

Cooking Day…Tacos, Soup, Chicken Salad, Enchiladas and Fresh Pinto Beans Day

Today I had a marathon cooking afternoon! I went to the store and when I returned home, instead of putting everything away, I cooked first. My motivation? This week is packed full of fun-filled things to do! I didn’t want to default to greasy, flavorless take-out. And, I didn’t want…

White Bean Chicken Chili

Easy and Delicious White Bean Chicken Chili

I really like white bean chicken chili. I was reminded just how much I enjoy it when my friend made her version when we came for lunch. It was so delicious that I was inspired to make my version. There is something so yummy about green chilies and beans and…

Because He Loves Me – Chapter 2

This is a GREAT chapter! There were so many truths that got me thinking, but one in particular stood out to me and really has gripped my thoughts since reading it. Elyse Fitzpatrick writes: “In Peter’s second epistle he lists the character traits that mark a believer’s life: faith, virtue,…

Citrus and Oregano Marinated Berry Salad

Citrus and Oregano Marinated Berry Salad

On Monday afternoon I was looking for a fresh and light side dish to go with the Chicken Chili I was serving. We already had some tortilla chips and guacamole on the side, so this called for some fruit. With strawberries and blackberries in the fridge I was on my…
