Hugs!

This morning, in a "Let's Live Happy" study group I am blessed to be a part of, our leader asked us to list three things for which we are thankful. First, it is difficult to limit it to three things! My goodness, I could fill pages! So, I just begin with ONE of the most …

A Few of My Favorite Books

I recently completed this book. It has risen to the top of my favorite list. When telling my Mom and sister about this book I started crying. I had no idea it had had that much of an impact on me. I know this for sure: God cares about the prodigals. And He cares about …

The pears were going to go bad if I didn't do something with them. I really wanted to make a sort of Tarte Tartin. So, I pulled out my recipe books and hit Pinterest. Nothing really caught my eye, so I combined a fresh apple cake recipe from my Southern Sideboards cookbook, put together by …
