  • Salads, wafers a hit during bridal shower

    This past weekend, I had the pleasure of hosting a bridal shower for my sister. I asked her beforehand if she preferred a potluck style meal or a lighter meal, consisting of salads and finger foods.

    She chose the latter, and boy did I have fun preparing the menu and the food. This week, I’d like to share with you what was served.

    Chicken Salad

    2 large chicken breasts, shredded

    Mayonnaise to suit

    1/4 to 1/2 tsp. salt

    1/8 tsp. black pepper

    Several dashes of cayenne pepper

    1/2 tbsp. honey

  • Help your teenager be relationship smart

    As a parent you want your teen to make wise choices in relationships. You don’t want them to get hurt and make life-changing mistakes.

  • God’s sweet love is the veneer of all

    Years ago I had a sort of business acquaintance whom I idolized.

    I was just getting started in book writing and at the time she was one of the top names in Christian publishing.

    This woman wrote some of the funniest books I’d ever read, plus she was highly in demand as a speaker. She probably still is.

    Back then she could make audiences laugh until they wet their pants and snap her fingers and bring them to their knees in surrender to the Lord.

  • Non-traditional tips for bug bites

    Anybody else feel like a duck? I had over 7 inches of rain in June, and July is shaping up to be just as wet. I’ve been here 19 years and this is definitely the wettest summer yet.

    Grandma Nora would have called it “close.” The high humidity makes you feel like you’re wearing a wet towel around all day. On the plus side, I don’t need as much moisturizer.
