DIY Sign for Autumn

DIY decor is so inexpensive to make. Just look at this Garden Sign I hung for summer, or the Custom Banner for Elliot's nursery, a Potholder for the kitchen, or this Waist Apron I made from vintage fabric. I aim to keep autumn decor very simple and natural-looking inside the home. This usually means bringing... Continue Reading →

God’s Silence

The following is a devotional, written by Oswald Chambers, that I found particularly inspiring and wanted to share with you today. May these words that he wrote challenge and encourage as you take a moment to ponder them. "When He heard that he was sick, He stayed two more days in the place where He... Continue Reading →

Bible Verses for Joylessness

Joyless. I've been there many times, and it is a difficult season to be in. But Scripture promises that, "His mercies are new every morning" (Lamentations 3:23), so we can find peace in knowing that promise is true. He will, "restore you to the joy of your salvation" (Psalm 51:12). I've listed a few verses... Continue Reading →

Plant a small seed in the ground, watch the large leaves form and the vines spread wide, and pumpkins emerge from here, there, and everywhere! Not only are they enjoyable to observe as they grow, but... Continue Reading →

Sourdough Drop Biscuits

Around here, slow Saturday mornings often involve a hearty brunch. That almost always means eggs, potatoes, and some form of sourdough bread. We often rotate between sourdough pancakes, waffles, chocolate chip muffins, crepes, or biscuits. I love these bread items because they give us the health benefits of fermentation and they are all naturally sweetened... Continue Reading →

Homemade Fermented Pickle Recipe

I love from scratch foods. There truly is nothing like that kind of cooking. Homemade Crock Pot Cinnamon Applesauce on a cool autumn day will fill anyone with joy. Lathering early morning biscuits with a Homemade Butter. The smell and flavor of a Honey-Sweetened Monster Cookie in the afternoon. I'm telling ya...you just can't find... Continue Reading →

Sourdough Mistakes to Avoid

Perhaps you've recently jumped on the popular sourdough train that is making headway in our current society. You're excited about the beginning steps of creating your starter (see how to do that right here), watched the bubbles form, and maybe even baked a few good loaves of bread, pancakes, pizza crust, or muffins. That's fantastic!... Continue Reading →
