    A TRIBUTE TO ALEX – Guest Post & Poem by Kathy McCullough

    A TRIBUTE TO ALEX – Guest Post and Poem by Kathy McCullough, Pastor’s Wife, Ark City, KS As a guest writer for this blog, I wanted to pay tribute to our son-in-law, Alex.  Alex had ALS and went to Heaven over 7 months ago. Before I go on, I am going to share this verse:  Psalm 78:19 kjv, “Yea, they spake against God, they said, Can God furnish a table in the wilderness.” Alex married our middle daughter and after they were married, he became a very zealous, faithful young man who loved serving the Lord.  He even was planning on going to Bible College.

    Sheet Pan Beef Fajitas

    I’ll have to admit… I LOVE meals that are fast fixes and that don’t require a lot of fuss… Plus, winter time is a good time to heat up the oven, making sheet pan meals a great choice.

    *Affiliate links have been used in this post. I made a fresh supply of my DIY vitamin E lip balm yesterday. I’ve been out for awhile.

Initially, it can cost you a bit more to get started making your own DIY beauty products.

    God’s Vitamin “C” for the Spirit – Book Blessings Book Review

    I’ve decided to re-title my monthly book features as “Book Blessings” because what I love to share with you are books that’s been a blessing to me and my family.

    Crispy Seasoned Kale Chips

    Kale chips are a healthy, satisfying alternative to fried potato chips. These crispy kale chips are super easy to make, but there are a couple things to keep in mind before you begin: First, combination of oven find the right temperature and cooking time. These chips will burn very quickly, so keep a close eye on them, especially the first time you make them. Here, a 325-degree oven and 6-7 minutes was all that was needed to yield crispy chips that weren’t soggy or overly bitter and brown. However, you’ll need to test this closely in your own oven to find the right balance. Next, the kale needs to be…
