  • Message of good news results in peace with God

    When we open the paper, turn on the television, or turn up the radio there is a common outcome; more often than not, what we read, see, or hear is bad news. After all, bad news is big business. We often buy magazines because of the scandal advertised on the cover; we “stay tuned” often out of an innate curiosity about the calamities of others.

  • Looking to save money, try homemade laundry detergent

    I wouldn’t call myself crafty in any sense of the word. I’m terrible at gift wrapping. I know that when my husband and I have children we will most likely have to get our presents wrapped or else the kids will discover “gee, Santa wraps presents like mom,” and after watching numerous demonstrations and YouTube videos, I still cannot successfully tie a tie.

  • Water your plants generously; prepare for harvest time

    It’s a good thing man invented hoses. Otherwise, I think our gardens would be filled with dehydrated everything. This is the time of year when Mother Nature decides to take a little siesta from doing the watering for us.

    If I ever win the lottery, I swear I’m going to have everything laser leveled and bermed so I can flood irrigate. It’s so much more efficient in time and effort. Our plants appreciate a good long drink way more than a few sips. Frequent light waterings lead to shallow roots.
