My Review of a Whole House Water Filtration System

Clean drinking water is a murky subject. I’ll confess that every time I begin to write a post about water filtration and removing toxins from your family’s water sources, I am tempted to start hyperventilating. There’s so much out there.

I’m not saying we’re lazy – I’m just saying I’d rather be playing a board game with my kids or enjoying the sunshine with a good book than coming up with new recipes or laboring over supper. (And I LOVE  to cook – like, serious LOVE LOVE LOVE, so that’s sayin’ sumthin’.) That’s why I love panna cotta, the […]

How to Pit and Freeze Sweet Cherries & 18 Unique Cherry Recipes

By Emily McClements, Contributing Writer One of our family’s most favorite things to do in the summer is to visit local U-pick farms and spend the day enjoying the beauty and bounty of God’s creation.

Tell Us Your #MyNewNormal Story and Win a Blendtec 725! {$649.95 value!}

  Spoiler alert: Today’s video post is from my husband! Though it’s certainly not a secret, I haven’t written much about my husband’s battle with cancer 7 years ago.  It was a difficult and often dark time in our story, though from it has come much healing and hope.  I could tell it from my perspective, but I don’t think it’s nearly as good as letting him share his journey, in his own words.  I’ll let Ryan take it from here…  When doctors diagnosed Ryan […]

Chocolate Avocado Popsicles

By Rachel Marie, Contributing Writer The middle of summer means a lot of heat, sun and hopefully fun. In the midst of summer business of swim lessons, vacation Bible school, and staying up later, we love to have fun outside. We go to splash pads to keep cool, play in the back yard with the hose and often go for bike rides in the evening as the sun is setting. Always remember to use a good sunscreen or cover up in the sun to prevent skin damage. […]
