This muffin recipe was inspired by the Pennsylvanian Dutch Shoofly Pie. It has a very heavy molasses flavor. It is like eating the pie without the crust.
2 Corinthians 12:14-16 says, "And I will very gladly spend and be spent for you; though the more abundantly I love you, the less I be loved." This passage was one I heard over and over again as I served as a Summer Staff member at a camp in Western North Carolina.
As a kid time seemed to drag on. It took forever to get to Chrismas and my birthday. The school year seemed like an eternity. Summer seemed to never end. As an adult, I understand that time goes so quickly. It seems like just yesterday I was getting married. It has been three and a half years now. It seems like it was not that long ago I found out I was expecting my first child. Now I am sitting here in my third trimester wondering how it went so fast. It is crazy to think I have one month at my job and two months before my little one gets here. Time has gone so fast.
On March 22 my Nana entered the presence of the Lord and was reunited with her beloved husband. Life had changed since then. When my dad had surgery several weeks ago I went to call her and let her know dad was doing well and out of surgery. It took me a second but I … Continue reading Mother’s Day Gift: The Christmas Cactus

For my husband and I, it is sometimes hard to find time together on a Saturday morning together. He has Firefighter training and works at least two or three Saturdays out of the month. Today he … Continue reading Saturday Morning Pancakes
I am now solidly in my second trimester. My due date is getting closer and closer. Several weeks ago we found out we were having a little girl. Seeing her on the screen at the doctor's office was so amazing. I could not believe my little one is growing so fast! For several weeks now … Continue reading God Sighting: Baby Kicks
This part of my journey includes two days. My last day in Israel and my thoughts as I returned home. I have not been back over to Israel since this trip. The Lord opened the doors for other things for me. Since this trip, I have done missions work, gotten marries, bought a house, and … Continue reading Israel Journey: Part 8
Just going to say that I had one of the most unique experiences this day of the trip. I got to experience something not many people got to do. I got to visit Masada on a rainy cold day. Seriously, that place only gets maybe 4 or so wet days a year. We just happened … Continue reading Israel Journey: Part 7
This was an amazing day for me. I got to walk on the Temple Mound. I was so close to where the Holy of Holies would have been. It was such an amazing feeling. Even though the Dome of the Rock is sitting there now you still get the feel for the hugeness of it. … Continue reading Israel Journey: Part 6
UPDATE 4/14/17 Sorry I did not get any pictures on this post. I have been sick with a cold most of the week. Here are the pictures now!! This had to be one of the saddest most somber days we had during our trip. In the morning we were focused on the Mount of Olives … Continue reading Israel Journey: Part 5
