Best Thanksgiving Recipe Ever!

Best Thanksgiving Recipe Ever!

Much to my mother in law’s chagrin, I am not a great cook.    Thankfully, she sends me endless recipes and cookbooks.   I love to pour over them, quickly scanning each recipe for skill level:  Easy. 

This winter I do plan on upping my game in the kitchen, especially around warm and hearty soups.   Anyone can throw a handful of ingredients in to a pot and simmer, right?   YES!

Staying on theme… I cannot think of a better recipe for the world pre-Thanksgiving and post-election than this:

  • 1 Large Heaping Cup of Love
  • Add Endless Teaspoons of Grace
  • Mix Repeatedly
  • Pour Out

But when the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together.   And one of them, a lawyer,  asked him a question to test him.  “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?”  And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.    

People, let’s show love to each other right now.   Whether it’s your friend who voted for the ‘other guy’ or your crazy Uncle who has one too many bourbons on turkey day, it really can start with you.    I am clearly a sucker for recipes labeled EASY.   I have found it much easier, less stressful, and less energy to walk in love, kindness, and grace.  

I pray you all have an awesome Thanksgiving holiday and I am relentlessly praying our nation embraces this time and each other with love.

P.S.   If you are looking for some great soup recipes this winter, check out Edie Wadsworth’s blog. I can’t wait for colder temps, winter fire and a new recipe from the soup whisperer!

Love, love, love!

I purchased this for me, mom, god mother, mother-in-law & god mother-in-law, and we all love it! No better way to engage in the Word than to have the Word speaking directly to you. This takes journaling to a new level! Thanks Paper Sunday!


I bought 18 journals for Christmas gifts for family and friends and 1 journal for myself and 1 calendar for myself (one for you... two for me 😂). The people I gave them to LOVED them. They are so unique. They are well made and high quality and the print examples don’t do justice to how pretty they are in person. I will be ordering more next year for sure.

He Knows My Name!🙌🏻

This was a gift given to me. What a special gift! To see MY NAME in scripture! I want to memorize scripture this year and what a beautiful way to do so! I immediately went on line and ordered for my friends too. Thank you for making it so personal, that is what it should be ... Personal! ❤️


All four of the journals were gifts. And all four of the ladies loved them! I am praying they will be a blessing to them all year long


We gave this journal as a gift to our international student staying with us. Seeing her name inserted into scripture has touched her heart and helped her understand how personally His word applies to each believers life. This is a great way to see God’s word living and active and touching lives. Thank you for your gift of ministry through your business.
