Creamy Italian Soup

Posted on March 27, 2017 by Dolly Sarrio, Sister #3883

I might as well call this Toscana Soup with some additions but will name it differently because I have a Toscana recipe already. This one has fresh asparagus and mushrooms that make it a little different. Guess it is a creamy mushroom, asparagus toscana soup ... Read more →

Hey ya'll!
I hope everyone is having a blessed Monday, as I know I am!

I seem to get more traffic and comments on these posts since they're all mixed photos I've been taking lately, oh, probably in the last week or so. And I'm so excited that spring is finally here! Oh, I cannot wait to get digging in the garden and running those summer 5ks! The weather has been so beautiful here in Ohio lately, which makes me crave fingernail painting, barn dances, and oh, so many summer activities. (including NO SCHOOL! yay!) ... Read more →

Author Lynn Austin

Posted on March 27, 2017 by Ginger Harman, Sister #6451

My friend Dottie insisted that I read Waves of Mercy by Lynn Austin and I am very pleased that I did. It is often very difficult to write Christian fiction and not come across preachy or holier than thou. However, Lynn Austin has crafted an amazing story that teaches a valuable lesson. Each character will pull you in and I found myself connecting with several of them on different levels ... Read more →

Say What? The Power of a Misworded Sentence.

Posted on March 27, 2017 by Wanda Sturrock, Sister #3399

Wayne sat in his porch rocker watching Martha Sue walk up the driveway from the road. She strolled across the front yard, mumbling to herself.

As she neared the front steps, he said, "Where you been, woman?"

She didn't answer until she'd climbed all five steps, and sat down in her rocking chair. "Up to the church house," she said ... Read more →

Not Waiting for Summer

Posted on March 26, 2017 by Sylvia Jacobus, Sister #5389

Visiting a friend, I was served a most delicious lunch. Along with a creamy pasta dish, this side dish was so good, I begged for the recipe. She muttered something about it being a "family secret recipe" and it didn't seem likely I could extract the recipe from her. A tremendous amount of compliments finally did the trick.

Imagine fresh green beans happily plucked off your vines this summer and freshly obtained mushrooms from your favorite market then running into your kitchen being giddy with your hair flying and your children running away because they think you're mad. Sorry, got carried away ... Read more →

Creative Blocks

Posted on March 27, 2017 by Teresa Kent, Sister #1357

Ever had a looming project deadline, but you find yourself unable to move forward because something else is literally in the way? Mental or physical clutter that has brought your creative energies to a screeching halt? For me, it came in the form of a pro bono project that literally took over my sewing room.

My main sewing machine was threaded and dedicated to the project we were working on. Parts of the project were scattered around my sewing room in various stages of completion ... Read more →
