Kamille Scellick
Kamille Scellick passionately believes that gathering around the table is where the body, mind & soul will be nourished. It's around the table where you're sure to find her on any given day...eating, talking, listening & sharing life with her husband, Ben & three girls. She believes in life-giving hospitality Jesus style and sees his redemption being offered through it. Her greatest achievement is knowing she is extending this hospitality first & foremost to her family and then to others. You can find her sharing stories, hospitality, food and life with friend & stranger at her blog, Redeeming the Table. There's a seat for you at her table to find home.

Living Out of Abundance, Not Scarcity

Do you ever feel this need to live life in scarcity mode rather than one of abundant offering? When I open up our fridge I begin rationing out the food out of fear that I will use up everything too quickly and be without. But what happens in my attempt to control and operate out of scarcity? Food spoils and goes rancid.   Could my attempt of control and mode...

Let You Be Enough

Let you be enough.   There are enough others, people who have skill sets you might wish you held. But, sister, let you be enough.   There are voices in our heads, competing, telling us to become bigger, set a larger table, make more food, do more so they love you more. But, mother, let you be enough.   There are those who say they welcome you to the table; yet, it...

Winter Party with Grain-free Chocolate Cupcakes

A winter party is one of my favorite ways to remind me to keep celebrating life. This was true as a fourth grader too. My golden blonde hair lay straight falling in my face. Sweeping it back to focus on weaving the purple & pink construction paper for my Valentine heart envelope to receive the next day’s Valentines.    My nine year old heart knew nothing of the 16 year...

Stop Striving, Start Sitting

Martha comes out of the kitchen weary, sweat beading down her brow and wispy hair coming undone to complain of her sister Mary’s laziness. Jesus directly, but kindly tells Martha her striving is done in vain.  She is told to do as her sister, to stop the striving and do what is right, which is to sit at his feet.   Can I insert, “I hear you Jesus, but who...

Become a Relational, Confident Cook

 When I listen to women lament of their kitchen struggles; I want to empower them to become a confident cook who attends to the importance of relational connectedness at the table.   If eating is the sixth love language, then mine is cooking for that person.  I understand what Eric Liddell meant when he said, “God made me fast.  And when I run, I feel his pleasure,” because when I get...

A Ministry Of Flowers and Discovering Me

Finding Ourselves in Unexpected Ministry After putting my girls to bed, after our youngest's birthday dinner was celebrated, after the living room was obliterated with gift wrap, I snuck away into the garden.  With summer inching away, the sun setting earlier making the after bedtime watering, weeding, deadheading more difficult.   As I stood there in my garden, I was reflecting on how I got here, in this spot, watering a flower...

Six Tips For making Real Life Connections

Can I make a caveat right at the get go here? I am not a "Top Ten Tips" sort of person (well maybe Top Six Tips).  I prefer to ask questions, tell you a story; but, not really into Bullet Points toward Success.  That being said, I made this list for my church women's retreat and thought sharing it here (with some tweaks) would be useful for you. Making Connections...

Blessed are the Caretakers

As I'm chopping vegetables to saute in my cast iron pot, one of my daughters runs up asking if I will dance with her.  Flustered, thinking, "can't she see I'm in the middle of making dinner?"  She does not.   You are blessed when you make room for interruptions.(Eugene Peterson, The Message) My daughter begins again to lose control of her emotions, something has spiked her being in the green...

Being a Child Again and Grain-free Cardamom Sticky Biscuits

Being a child once is not too far removed even if the years say so.  It’s in being a mother where I get to overhear the banter of “Pretend you….” between sisters and friends, anguish of being excluded, and laments from feeling ugly.  Children tell us a lot….if we only take the time to listen. ***  My puffy pink coat, her strawberry lip gloss, us tethered together inseparably in the...

Inheriting the Kingdom of Heaven with Small Prayers

Welcoming our first born into our family allowed my heart to stretch wide & open with more room.  With each subsequent child, it's like my spirit burst to overflowing.  If there is one thing that has taught me about the hospitable heart of God, it's the opening up my home to my children.   Our family gathers around the dinner table. We bicker, we shout, we ask for forgiveness and...
