Standing Before God

We talked with a young girl named Cherokee about standing before God one day and at the end of our talk she did something amazing.  This was possible because you support K-LOVE financially or through prayer.  You can listen to the conversation below.

Handwriting

I discovered a skill that I am losing....

I am not able to write any more.  I had a hard time writing in a journal yesterday and had to write 5 checks just to get one right.  I think this is because we type so much more than we write.  Here is a video of my horrible handwriting.

Welcome Wagon

It took me 4 months to meet my neighbors so I was wondering if you could help me.  Does the welcome wagon still exist for new neighbors?  Is it harder to get to know your neighbors in this day and age?

Cooking and Food Myths

Did you know that oatmeal pies are actually good for you? Ok, well maybe not, (just don't tell Amy, it will break her heart!), but here are some other myths about food and cooking to help you live a healthier life (taken from RealSimple.com):

Myth: Boiling Vegetables Lose the Nutrition

Although many green vegetables lose some nutrients when boiling or stewing them, minerals such as iron and potassium are usually still retained. They are also still a great source of fiber.

Myth: Never Rinse Mushrooms

Rinsing mushrooms is good, but when you soak them in water, they absorb too much liquid and release it onto your dish. A better bet is to use a "mushroom brush" or a paper towel.

Myth: Butter Goes Bad Without Refrigeration

Butter spoils, but not as quickly as other dairy products because it typically contains added salt, which kills a lot of bacteria. Even unsalted butter can last about a week, because it consists of natural salt to slow bacteria which causes it to spoil.
