FarmLit Anyone?

My typical reader is a believing woman between the ages of 25 and 40 who cares about the food she eats and serves her family, focusing on real ingredients—possibly organic, local, and seasonal food. She has begun to realize there is a point where food meets faith and is willing to go exploring in that neighborhood.

Why I Removed the Facebook Ap from my Phone

Instead, it took me to a list of things to which, by having the Facebook ap on my phone, Facebook gets unlimited access. And, apparently this is new (I found this article this morning.)

Things like text messages (and it had a disclaimer that said, “Regardless of confidentiality”), my entire address book, my pictures, my GPS location, etc. It also has the ability to prevent my phone from going to sleep, sending text messages on my behalf, and interfering with my calendar.

A Brief Essay

A brief essay on the 5AM alarm clock, the teenager with late working hours, the two young boys – one of whom is SO reliant on schedules and timing, AND, last but not least, the idea that changing the hands on the clock doesn’t ACTUALLY add or remove the number of hours the sun shines in a day:

Using a Bread Machine to Mix & Knead Bread Dough

I’ve had this post on my “to write” list for a while now. I’ve just been so busy that I haven’t had a chance to write it. Two years ago, the motor burned out in my Kitchenaid mixer. Now, my mixer is an EXPENSIVE one. It’s this one. Getting it in the nickel instead of another color added nearly $100 to the price, and I think we paid almost $600 for it (though I notice today, in finding the link, that Kitchenaid has it on sale.)…

Snakebook and other Human Distancers

In our fallen world, my duties are pretty clear as the male half of the Biblical ONE that is our holy state of matrimony. I am to follow the “three P’s” principle to act as high Priest of my home, Provide for my home, and Protect my home and loved ones. That is what the Bible requires of husbands and fathers.

If you read the third Chapter of Genesis, you will discover the very often overlooked fact that Adam was standing right next to his wife the entire time the serpent tempted her…

What a Start to the Year!

The flu hit our house last week, and I’m still down with it. I AM feeling better than I have in days, so I’m hoping this is my last day with it.

My house is a mess, my Christmas tree is still up, store-bought bread is in the bread box, and once the soups I made when I still felt well enough to cook ran out, my family has been sustaining itself on Japanese and Greek takeout — but we’ve survived it and all but me are well enough to be at school and work today.

Budgeting Spreadsheet with a Downloadable Form!

For the last three years, I have written about the budgeting spreadsheet that I created in Excel to manage my household expenses. This is always an INCREDIBLY popular post, and many people asked for a copy of the spreadsheet to be emailed to them.

My husband finally got a few minutes to make this a clickable download; so try that first.

Goals

Happy New Year! I’m writing this post with my phone. My kids were at my parents’ house for a couple of days, and Scott came down with Type A influenza. So, I left home in a hurry to do the 5-hour-drive, and inadvertently left my computer at home. But, I can still do this blog post, clumsy as it may be! It has been an incredible year. I have been amazed and humbled by the way God is using me and developing my ministry.
