Veg Bad Challenge


Who out there is willing to join me in The Veg Bad Challenge?  Here are the guidelines:

1. Commit to increasing the amount of vegetables that you are currently eating over the next 90 days. (Hey if you aren't eating any, then one will be a increase, right?)

2. Invite your family to join in with you, because it's more fun with company and you won't be able to torture yourself with an infinite amount of beet salad and other unusual dishes while your family gets away with calling french fries and ketchup a veg.

3.  Once a week, post a veg recipe that you've made that your family enjoyed.  Vegetables need to be the main ingredient, so no tofu or bean recipes please.  Though I must say vegetables covered in other things like cheese is totally acceptable.  Feel free to share the dishes that you served along side the successful veg dish.

4.  If you are met with heart ache over every veg dish you serve in a week, post the one that was met with the most complaining and warn the rest of us never to serve it.

James Week 10 James 5: 13-20

We finish up our study on James with some encouraging words about prayer and standing in the gap.




Study Questions Week 10


When you don't feel like yourself, what is generally your first response? Do you start with prayer, rest, food, lashing out at others? When you encounter others that are not acting like themselves what is your initial thought? How do you think your relationships would be different if you began those interactions with prayers? Prayers for understanding for yourself and peace for the other person?When you are happy, do you ever try to keep it to yourself because you don't want to celebrate while others around you are struggling? Can focusing our happiness towards God with praise and worship change how we view sharing those moments? God is the source of every good and perfect gift (James 1:17). How can this verse help shape your worship and praise? Take some time this week to praise God for some good gifts, which are present even if you are in the midst of a s…

Murder, Motherhood, and Miraculous Grace by Debra Moerke

Y'all know that I love a good murder mystery, especially when it's based on a true story. Unfortunately, this is one of the most heartbreaking true stories that I've read.

This is the true story of a foster family and not just any foster family, this was the teach others how to do it foster family. They took all the tough cases and kept larger families together. They knew how to foster kids. This story is about a specific family of several kids that came into their care when their single mother ran into some problems with the law.

There was one little girl from the displaced family, Hannah, found a very special place in their hearts. It became clear during their time together that Hannah was not treated the same as her siblings by her birth mother, Karen. She showed fear and the other children distanced themselves from her. When it came time to return to live with their birth mother, Hannah begged to stay with the Moerke family. The Moerkes did all they could to keep tabs…
