Cinnamon Fruit Dip Recipe

Cinnamon fruit dip recipe - This comes together so quickly and has only 4 ingredients! It's a 5-minute recipe!

Last Sunday, it was our turn to bring the snacks for the small group meeting we attend at church. The other group members had set the bar high – homemade guacamole (that’s amazing), fruit trays, tortilla pinwheels, and spinach and artichoke dip (also amazing). We had planned to bring a fruit tray, but there were […]

Moses and the 10 Commandments Booklet and Activity

10 commandments activity

Whether you are a Christian or not, you undoubtedly know the story of Moses and the 10 Commandments. Right? Everyone knows about the 10 Commandments. There was even a big time movie starring Charlton Heston. Called, you know, the 10 Commandments. Except our kids don’t know about the movie or Moses or even the 10 Commandments […]

10 Bible Verses to Overcome Anxiety & Worry

10 Bible verses to overcome anxiety and worry

I was laid off from my dream job this past week. It hurts. It hurts a lot. My boss kept repeating that it was nothing I had done, and that she’d rather give me a raise than lay me off, but her hands were tied. She had to let me go. I couldn’t get her […]

Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole (Gluten-free)

cheesy-hashbrown-casserole

We made this casserole for dinner last week, and it was very fine. I ate the leftovers for every meal until they were gone. It really was that good. Cheese, potatoes, crunchy. How can you go wrong? You can’t. The only snag is that this is the least healthy potato dish ever. (Maybe not ever. It’s […]

Learning to Count Money – Preschool Sorting Activity

This is a simple activity to teach preschoolers the beginning skills to count money.

“One-two-three-four,” Allie counted as she pulled her “quarters” out of her piggy bank. All the coins were quarters. When she got to the teens, she counted “sixteen, eighteen, sixteen, eighteen, sixteen, eighteen.” As adorable as it was to watch and listen to her counting her moneys, I decided to step in and help her to […]

12 Bible Verses to Overcome Anger & Resentment

12 Bible verses to overcome anger and resentment

About a week ago, I received an email from a reader. She saw my post on overcoming disappointment, and she asked if I could help her. She is suffering in an unbearably unjust situation, and she is angry and resentful at the person causing it. I can’t share her whole story, but the details are […]

CrockPot Mediterranean Chicken with Feta and Black Olives

CrockPot Mediterranean Chicken with Black Olives and Feta Cheese

Olives are ubiquitous at my house. They’re always on the table. Special occasions call for olives. Sundays call for olives. We eat olives just about every day. My kids’ favorite part of black olives is putting them on their fingers and pretending to be monsters. I’m not saying you have to do that to make […]

Egg and Olive Salad Sandwich Recipe

Egg and olive salad sandwich

One of our go-to meals for lunch is egg and olive salad. The kids and I eat ours on crackers, and Joe eats his on a sandwich. He likes his sandwich with lettuce and tomato, which I included in the recipe below but did not have when I took the photo above (in case you wonder about that). My […]

Painting with Cookie Cutters

Painting with Cookie Cutters - This is so simple and easy! Plus, it uses barely any paint so there's no mess.

Allie loves to paint, and I do like to help her paint, but at 4, her paintings are all the same sort of globby mess. It frustrates me that she soaks her brush full of paint and slops it around the paper (though I never let on), and I think it frustrates her that she’s not […]

A Prayer for My Children {and a Duck Commander Giveaway}

Duck Commander Devotions for Kids

**This post contains a giveaway for the book, Duck Commander Devotions for Kids. I read once that the average American buys one book per year. We are way above average. We get at least one book a month, but mostly closer to 3-4 books a month. Some we buy, some are for reviews (like the one below), but […]
