  • We call it Goulash
    on Jan 6, 2014
    I really don't know the official name of this recipe but it's good. It's a concoction of things I had in my pantry and fridge one day and it turned out pretty good.  The kids have named it goulash.  It's easy and tastes even better on the s...

  • Fajitas anyone?
    on Jan 6, 2014
    I love fajitas!  They have become one of my favorite foods over the years but a pain to make. I hated having to saute veggies in one pan while cooking my chicken or beef in another.  Now I don't have to!! I discovered on Pinterest that I ca...

    on Aug 21, 2013

  • The Vow
    on Jul 20, 2012
    Lying in bed late one night with Krickitt asleep beside me, I came face-to-face once again with the fact that only God could heal our marriage.  At that point Krickitt and I could hardly be in the same room together without fighting.  And I...

  • Love just needs to be true
    on Mar 24, 2012
    If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don't love, I'm nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate. If I speak God's Word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making everything plain as day, and if I have faith that says to...
