Is it just me, or does food bring people together in a special way? There is something wonderful about sharing your table and the fruits of your labours (or someone else’s for that matter). Conversation flows more naturally and small silences go unnoticed as we enjoy the meal. Years ago, we would split the time…… Continue reading easter feasting
Well, it seems I’ve been MIA. I hope you’re having a fantastic summer with lots of reenergizing and reconnecting time. We finished our homeschooling at the end of May so as to prepare for a busy summer. And what a busy summer it’s been! It’s a summer centred around people–family, friends and new friends.

I prayed for direction…… Continue reading me…leading a ladies’ bible study?
