I grew up a meat-lovin’ girl and enjoyed the 5 big meats: pork, beef, chicken, turkey, and lamb! A few years ago, life took a wicked turn for me, and I became allergic to all 4-legged creatures. Now, I’m always on the look-out for delicious chicken dishes and when I found this blog post for 60 new ways to spice up boring chicken, I just had to share. Plus, a mother’s day giveaway and great family lesson with rubber bands!
We watched our teenager have really good days, and really hard days returning back home to the states. Heck, I was having good and bad days, too. It’s difficult to watch your child face uncertainties and even more difficult knowing how to help them pray through a tough decision. We challenged her to “pray through” and take the time to allow God to guide her (not us).
I will never forget the first time I got kissed on the lips from an old man with leprosy. I remember thinking, gosh, can I get this hideous disease from a kiss? I honestly had no idea, but, ended up getting more kisses, hugs, and hand holding all week with the most precious group of men I had ever met in my life. I was in love.
