  • I’m sitting on a couch in Hershey, Penn., with my sister, my daughter and my granddaughter, watching the Food Network and thinking, “How weird is this?”

    We’re here on a partial family vacation since only part of our family is here. My sister flew in from California and my daughter, granddaughter and son-in-law drove up from Virginia. My husband and I flew up from Florida.

    We chose to meet in Hershey because we like chocolate. Also, the children of my husband’s late best friend live nearby and they’ve become family to us.

  • When summer began, I had big plans to start my first garden. I was inexperienced and overly ambitious and now that August is here I am left with more tomatoes than I could possibly eat even through the rest of the year.

    With the old saying “waste not, want not” in the back of my head I am getting very creative with all the things you can do with tomatoes.

    Methodist continues artist series

  • Several years ago while speaking to a group of about 70 people I was prompted to ask a question that had intrigued me for years: What is the central theme of the Bible?

    Because I wanted the answers to be individual and not a takeoff from someone else’s response, I had each person first write their response on an index card and then transfer their answers to large pieces of paper I’d hung at the front of the room.

  • One of my favorite meals to make with my kids is breakfast. Maybe I’m more patient with them after we’ve all had a good night sleep, maybe the smell of bacon and eggs makes me happy, or maybe it’s my strong cup of coffee. Either way, it’s one of my favorite times to get in the kitchen with my little ones and let them freely make their little messes and then proudly announce to daddy that, “breakfast is ready!”
