July’s Monthly Menu (2015 Version)

So I know July has already begun, but the month wouldn't be complete without a new monthly menu for July!  This month, I've included a spontaneous meal (because I know we will be out and about but don't know where we'll be for dinner) as well as a "Make It Up As You Go" dinner, where I'll check out what I have around the house and make something from it.  If some of the recipes from this month's menu sound like something you'd like to try, just let me know and I'll send you the link.  Enjoy!

5 Valuable Resources for Tweens (and Their Parents!)

Going into last week, I had no idea what I was in for. I thought I was entering a growth opportunity for myself, but instead I found many more resources to help grow my daughters into the young women God intends them to be. For two hours a day, I entered into the world of the "tween." Since Rapunzel turned eight, I've been slowly seeking out resources that would help her grow as a Christian, but it's been difficult to find Christian music, tv, and books that compare to what Disney and Nickelodeon have to offer for that age group.…

Whew.  I don't know about you, but that sure is a relief for me!  Because I sin.  And sometimes it seems like I am sinning all. the.…

Scripture Sunday: Everything I Need

  "The Lord is my shepherd.  I have everything I need." - Psalm 23:1 I just had to share the scripture verse my kids were learning last week.  If my grandma were to look down on us from heaven, boy would she be happy.  Every time I hear the 23rd Psalm, I think of her.  When we were little, she had us read it, memorize it, draw it, write it, and act it out.  I'm pretty sure I had it memorized by the time I was 5 or 6. But it is a great chapter of scripture.  This particular verse…
