    The Best Garlic Press We’ve Ever Owned – Product Review

    The last garlic press I owned was worthless. After months and months of peeling garlic and mincing it manually, I finally purchased another garlic press.  I felt that this would be a good, intentional purchase because I cook with garlic a LOT.  At least two recipes that I make, I use a WHOLE head of garlic. I love adding garlic to my salads and soups, especially when I’m feeling a little under the weather because garlic is great for fighting off those unwanted germs in your body which make you sick. I invested some spare time reading through tons of feedback from customers on various garlic presses.  I wanted something…

    When It’s Time to Go Home

    Guest Post by Lynne Norton, Missionary Wife, Ixmiquilpan, Hidalgo Mexico Having been raised in a Christian home gave me a good start in life, for sure. Church going, wholesome living, singing & laughing were all a part of my upbringing for which I am sincerely grateful. Our life wasn’t a bed of roses, but it was a good one. However, life happens… I can’t recall hearing anyone ever say, “Yup, this is exactly what I imagined my life would be like.” On the contrary, life knocks you about in such a way that you are left feeling afraid, angry, betrayed, and confused about many things. That’s a telltale indication it’s…

    Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Balsamic Glaze

    I have to admit… I’ve never even tried Brussels sprouts until a couple of years ago. I thought perhaps they were some weird-tasting vegetable or something. Growing up I loved vegetables, but lettuce salads, green beans, peas, tomatoes, onions and corn were our main staples as far as vegetables were concerned. My mom occasionally served cabbage, which I have learned to love in my adult life. Once I tried oven-roasted vegetables, such as cauliflower, broccoli and Brussels sprouts, it was a real game-changer in consuming (and thoroughly enjoying) vegetables. The flavor is just remarkable… I could eat a WHOLE pan of oven-roasted cauliflower when given a chance. Do give oven-roasted…

    Ministry Helps 1: Vacation Bible School Ideas – Free Printable

    I wanted to start another new category on HCH called “Ministry Helps”.  I hope and pray it will be a blessing to you. I will not be posting these very often; basically when there are 5 Wednesdays in a month, I will plan to use one of those Wednesdays with a new Ministry Help.  I will also try to have some type of free printable for you to use as well. This month I asked our youth pastor if I could share with my readers the ideas from our recent vacation Bible school (over 20 saved, praise God!), and so with his permission I’m sharing some photos below in the…
