Last month I wrote about how to grow your own tomatoes. If you missed that post, check it out HERE.
As of this month, my two little plants have produced over 20 tomatoes! So, with all these tomatoes, I need to find a good use for them! Of course, I can always chop them up and freeze them to use in sauces later, but I’d also like to try and eat a lot of them fresh ...more
A few years ago, I needed to find a recipe for Irish Soda Bread for a St. Patrick’s Day potluck my husband and I were going to. I looked around online for awhile and came across this one:
It was a quick bread made in a loaf pan, so it wasn’t very traditional, but I’m not necessarily a huge stickler for that sort of thing, so I thought I’d try it. I couldn’t believe how easy ...more
The last couple of posts from Deb and Molly have been all about some of the organizing they’ve been doing for the new year. To see those posts, click HERE and HERE.
If you also have a million new Christmas presents to sort through and find a place for, or if you just decided it’s time for some early spring cleaning, I figure at some point, you’re going to need a snack! If you’re anything like ...more
I have a few friends who love to make homemade cinnamon rolls for breakfast on Christmas morning. Like my friends, you might also love the idea of cinnamon rolls for breakfast, but like me, you might not love the idea of getting up super early to make them. You might also be planning to eat Christmas cookies all day and would rather not ingest millions of calories for breakfast. Either way, I have your solution, ...more
This recipe is very similar to the one my mom made every Thanksgiving when we were growing up. Then I carried the tradition on when I started making my own Thanksgiving dinners.
Over the years, I added a few more herbs and seasonings, but the basic recipe stayed the same until one year my brother and his wife hosted Thanksgiving. It was their first time hosting, and they took on the task of preparing most of ...more
On October 1st, the outside temp on my car read 103 degrees! I longed to break out the fall decor and crank up our oven again, but sadly, fall seemed nowhere in sight…
However, this week, the summer has finally (hopefully!) gasped it’s last breath, and the temps are much more reasonable again. My hubby and I are especially excited since that means it’s pumpkin bread time! We LOVE pumpkin bread, and I usually make it ...more
Now that it’s September, most parts of the country are finally starting to cool off, but here in Southern CA, it’s still super hot! As you can imagine, I’m not very motivated to use my oven right now, but my husband and I are still craving classic comfort foods that usually require some baking. So, to solve this dilemma, I decided to alter one of our mac and cheese casserole recipes a little so I ...more
Summer weather in Southern California usually comes a little later than the rest of the country, so even though it’s early July, we’re still enjoying temps in the low 80’s – perfect for outdoor grilling and picnics in the park! I love to cook and share good food with friends and loved ones, and one of my favorite foods of all time, as well as one of my favorite things to make for barbeques and ...more
"I just want to say THANK YOU!!! I received Phil’s customized cards in the mail the other day and I LOVE IT!!! You did such a great job!!! It brought tears to my eyes to see and read the verses, so I know it will also touch Phil!...I showed the cards off at work today and everybody absolutely thought it would make such a wonderful gift and everyone also mentioned what a GREAT job you do on your cards. So….again, THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!"
“I knew I'd love the cards, but had no idea HOW much! Thank you so much for them...I know they will be a blessing to my entire family…I just wanted to send you a message to let you know that I'll likely be back for more cards sometime very soon…You really have done your homework and give such a thorough, scripturally-based guide of how to lift up loved ones in prayer. THANK YOU.”
“I'm so thankful to have found your prayer cards. They are so unique and so wonderful to have. I obviously know 'how' to pray, but when something is a big deal in your life it can be hard to find the words to pray and these cards, like I said, are a HUGE help. Thank you so much for the prayers. What a blessing that is to me :-)…Thank you for making these and thinking of those of us on that "waiting" side of adoption.”
“May God continue to bless your hands as you continue to be an active prayer warrior for the people of our times and times to follow. Keep up the great blessing and sometimes heavy challenge of God's precious work!”
“I received my prayer journal and just wanted to let you know that it's even more beautiful in person - I can't wait to start recording my prayers in it! What an awesome ministry you have!”
“I just read through your prayers on infertility and I was so blessed by the wisdom and opportunity for a deeper walk with God that each one offered. These are the best prayers for a hurting heart that is longing for a child.”
“...I purchased a set of the Praying for Infertility cards... I will always be grateful the Lord allowed me to purchase your prayer cards. They really helped me pray in a more spiritually mature way about my infertility, and I believe God used those prayers to help prepare my heart for this current season of my life… Thank you for your obedience to the Lord. My life has been changed because of your hard work for Him.”
“Thank you so much, I love these cards and they are such a blessing to me! I even shared about them in a blog I have recommending them to others.”
“It's so, so, so easy to give your cards away! I love them! And [I am] so encouraged by them too. Answered prayer: my sister is now on fire in praying for her children! A month ago I offered her a set of cards and she didn't want them. Last week I saw her and she shared how God placed prayer as a priority in her heart. I gave her my set and she now has them in her car to pray over whenever she is waiting.”
“I'm so glad I ordered through Molly from Throne of Grace. I was able to work with Molly to personalize this prayer/devotion book. I requested many additions to the book, and Molly was able to fulfill ALL those requests. Molly was easy to contact, quick to reply and so wonderful to work with…Molly was more than accepting of my input and more than willing to do anything she could do to make this purchase special...Thanks SO MUCH MOLLY!...Again and Again I'd order from her!”
"I'm a returning customer and I've been thrilled with my previous purchases. I'm giving these to every mother I know who has a new baby :-)"
