40 by 40 Bucket List

January 1, 2017 By · No Comments

40 by 40

2017 is a year of many things for different people. Last year I chose the word “GROWTH” for my word for the year. This year it is looking more like “FEARLESS” will be my word. As I approach 40 I want to be happy about the number, not fearful. Currently I want to be able to state I have done something more than just being a wife and a mom. But in life, opportunities that came I was too scared to do, or worse I wouldn’t even consider because of some fear I had. I no longer want to NOT do things. Here is my 40 by 40 Bucket List. I’d love to see your bucket list.

  1. Go river rafting
  2. Take my kids camping
  3. Go fishing
  4. Visit some of the local farms (Kelsay Farms/Watermann’s Family Farm)
  5. Lose 60lbs
  6. Enter my first 5K walk
  7.  Have a garden that actually has fruits and/or Vegetables.
  8. Join a softball team
  9. Learn to swim
  10. Learn to ski

My oldest is home for Christmas and this is the machine he wanted, we went to three stores before we found one. Sadly, the last one sold out just before we got up to the register. He still bought the X-box One bundle but a different version.

Grinch Cake Mix Cookies Recipe

December 22, 2016 By · 1 Comment

Grinch Cake Mix Cookies with tiny Mint Hearts!

Nicoli and I wanted to make cookies one day and had recently heard of cake mix cookies at story hour. I decided to go to the store and see what we could create. We saw lots of cake mixes to choose from and in the same aisle was all the Christmas stuff and someone walked by with a sour attitude and I immediately thought about Grinch. We’d make Grinch Cake Mix Cookies!

Aren’t those Grinch Cake Mix Cookies cute? I’m the type of mom that loves to tie baking into something to read or watch. These cookies would go nicely with a hot chocolate, curled up in the living room watching “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.” Don’t you think so?

Ingredients for Grinch Cake Mix Cookies:

  • Cake Mix
  • food coloring (green)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • powdered sugar
  • Andis mints

When Jesus was a Green-Eyed Brunette

WHEN JESUS WAS A GREEN EYED BRUNETTE

by Max Davis

Loving People Like God Does

About When Jesus Was a Green-Eyed Brunette:

This story weaves heartwarming and miraculous stories of Jesus showing up in ordinary people, revealing that He knows us and is fully present in our everyday circumstances, especially in our difficulties.

Those hurting and weary from worn-out religion are longing for a fresh touch from the living Jesus. Best-selling author Max Davis challenges us to do more than simply receive God’s grace—we need to allow grace to soften, change, and shape us. As you read this book you will laugh, cry, and come face-to-face with the living Jesus, much like Davis did, when he found Him living in a green-eyed brunette.

As Davis puts it, “Jesus is very much alive today and still does incredible things—sometimes supernatural things—through us!”

My Opinion of When Jesus Was a Green-eyed Brunette:

This isn’t a story like you’d expect. It isn’t strictly about Jesus or his birth, but it is definitely a story that will reach in and touch your soul. I love how Davis showed us that Jesus is always there for us whether we see it or not.  I believe that he shows up just when you need him, some of us realize who he is and some of us do not. Those that do are overwhelmed with the feeling of peace, love and sorrow sometimes.

For me, I have met my own form of Jesus before, I was but a little girl testifying against my own mother. There I was in a courthouse, all eyes looking at me, knots in my stomach and the judge calling a recess in the hopes that I wouldn’t get sick all over the place. As I walked into the restroom with the guard outside the door, I met Jesus and he was in the form of a little old lady. That little old lady appeared just when I needed to hear all would be good and not only were my parents proud of me but so was God. She disappeared as quickly as she appeared, not even the guards had seen her go in. Trust me, I asked.
