We have bees!

No, I’m not crazy. I was recently house/pet sitting for a dear friend, and this time, little Mason Bees were part of the gig. They were just starting to hatch and needed to be transported outside once hatched. I started reading about them and read what amazing pollinators they are. I’m all for saving the…

Pork Souvlaki from Nom Nom Paleo

It’s really hard to not like grilled, marinated meat. Greek flavors of lemon and oregano really hit the spot for me in this dish. I made it with pork, but you could easily swap pork for chicken. Make sure you have several hours for the meat to marinate, if not overnight. It is worth it,…

Wednesday’s Word and Compassion, International

On Sunday, our church continued the series BLESSED. Our pastor focused on God blessing us so that we can be a blessing to others. We had an amazing testimony from a man named Jey Mbiro (read his story here). He grew up in the slums of Kenya, but through Compassion, he was able to make…

Almond Flour Waffles

We eat mostly Paleo in our house and we have never tried to make non-Paleo things Paleo like bread, muffins, or other bread-like items. To be honest, I don’t want a Paleo biscuit. I grew up in the south, therefore, I want a real biscuit! I caved and have been working on a waffle recipe,…

Wednesday’s Word

Recently at church we have been discussing lots of topics, but a lot of them including how we speak and to not let foul words come out of our mouths. Think of how encouraging sweet words are or how we could improve someone’s day with a kind word.
