Marinated Kale and Chicken Bowls with Sun Dried Tomato Sauce

recipes May 14, 2024


I was in the mood to make a healthy bowl for dinner tonight, and came across this great dish from Lindsay at Pinch of Yum. 

Kale? I had just picked and washed fresh kale from our garden a few hours earlier!

Avocados? They were on sale this week for 3 for $1 and I have a HUGE bowl of them!

Chicken? I picked up a rotisserie chicken from Costco a couple days ago and hadn't used the chicken breasts yet.

Sun dried tomatoes? I had been eyeing a jar in my pantry for days, thinking how good they sounded.

Lemons? Our neighbors have a tree and had given us a big bag of them.

So...that was that, and I was off to the races, augmenting the recipe by just shaking some lemon pepper on the already cooked chicken that I had. And doubling up on the avocados because they are just sooo good and good for you, too.

We all loved it and I think you and your family will, too! Enjoy!

Marinade for the kale and chicken:

1/3 cup olive oil

1/2 teaspoon...

Appealing to the God of Impossibilities

faith May 02, 2024

It looked impossible.

When Israel got backed up to the Red Sea and the Egyptian army was coming for them, the Israelites were terrified.

They'd just been miraculously guarded from the plagues of blood, frogs, gnats, livestock deaths, boils, hail, locusts, darkness and deaths of firstborn children.

They had been freed from slavery and even left with the riches of Egypt in their hands.

But there they stood thinking they were about to die by the sword of the Egyptian army.

Little did they know what God was about to do for them.

God was about to part the Red Sea and allow them to walk through on dry land! 

One of the greatest deliverance stories in all of history!

A great reminder that...

NOTHING is impossible with God. 

ANYTHING is possible with God.


Today situations may look impossible and things may look unsalvageable...and it may get a lot worse before the Lord intervenes.

But choose today as an act of your will to

1. reject fear

We Need More Leaders Like This

inspiration Mar 30, 2024

Kudos to Baylor President Dr. Linda Livingstone for boldly speaking truth and sharing a powerful witness this week to the many in her realm of influence.

Linda, a dear friend of ours since the 1980's, is courageously working amidst the adversity of this dark world and all it's pressures to preserve the Christian mission of a major university (no small job, right?)

Lord, bless Linda Livingstone and all the others standing up each day for what is right and good so that our children might have the opportunity to walk in your Truth.

How can you take a stand for the Lord in your realm of influence? What is one change you could make this week, even if it is small?

A Blessing and Little Song for You

I pray this new song, written and recorded by Taylor Stull, will refresh your spirit and soul as you look to the Lord.  

(By the way, if your kids hear this song, you may be hearing them sing it the rest of the day! It seems to have that effect.) :)  


Taylor shares:   

"This little song is now spreading its wings & how I hope it soars!  

Psalm 24. 'Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? Those who have clean hands and pure hearts.'  

With every step, I come to the knowledge that anywhere with Jesus is safe.  

The more I let him cleanse me.

Purify me.

The more I experience him.  

Take me on the mountain.

Or take me to your riverside.

Mountain high.

Valley low.

Anywhere you want to go…..  

Just change me as we walk together.  

When I hear this song, I feel like I’m soaring high above the clouds.

Kissing the tops of streams & running through open...

faith inspiration parenting Mar 16, 2024

I'm still rejoicing over how the Lord met us in such a powerful way at the Coach Mom Live Retreat in Phoenix a few weekends ago.

I so appreciate everyone who shared their talents to make it such a special weekend.

My daughter Mari made this video showing highlights from the weekend, which includes some of the moms sharing what the time meant to them.

Again, one of the most powerful moments this year was the time the foster and adoptive moms shared their stories with each other.

Where to go from here...

I am excited to continue the love and support by opening the doors to Truth Mom Tribe, a community for honest, free, and fun foster and adoptive living.

If you are a foster or adoptive mom, or seek to know how best to support your foster and adoptive mom friends, I hope you will consider joining the Truth Mom Tribe!

A Simple Prayer, God Sent an Eagle

faith Jan 20, 2024

Do you ever feel like God isn't hearing your prayers?

I sat today with a friend and we recounted some of our best answered prayer moments, and it was so spiritually encouraging and uplifting.

What did all of these "best" answered prayer moments have in common? There was always some difficulty, risk or peril...but God.

What in your life do you need God's intervention in?

Always pray and never lose heart. (Luke 18:1)

Click here and take in this 30-second astounding testimony springing from a simple sincere prayer.

Then take a moment to lift up your heart to the Lord, asking Him for intervention in your life or family.

Trust the promise that as you pray according to HIs will, He hears you. And that you have what you have asked. (1 John 5:14)

I'm praying right now that as you pray a sincere prayer, the Lord will show you

  • He loves you
  • He sees you
  • He hears you

Please let me know if you end up with a cool story to share!

Barbara O’Neill Flu Bomb Home Remedy

health parenting recipes Dec 07, 2023

"It will knock out most sicknesses in three days," according to health teacher Barbara O'Neill, when she talks about her "flu bomb" recipe. 

This natural remedy, recommended by Barbara O'Neill, provides the body with the environment it needs to heal, without the negative side effects that come with pharmaceutical drugs. (It's also cost-effective!)

Each ingredient in this recipe serves a specific purpose in promoting healing within the body.

  • Garlic, a "natural antibiotic" also helps with boosting the immune system. (One study cited that one clove of garlic is 6x more potent than the antibiotic Tetracycline) It's also anti-viral, anti-fungal, and anti-yeast.
  • Ginger has anti-inflammaory, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties and is best known to help reduce nausea.
  • Lemon juice is high in vitamin C, which can help boost the immune system, while honey is full of antioxidants and provides soothing relief for the throat.
