Come & Eat: A Celebration Of Love And Grace Around The Everyday Table

I first connected with Bri McKoy on twitter several years ago. Bri's work with Compassion International connected us, as I was an advocate, and participant in the Compassion Bloggers program. Eventually, God opened the door for me to travel along with Bri and two other bloggers, to write for Compassion on a Sponsor tour. It was in one of the many terminals at Miami International airport where Bri and I...

Become a Relational, Confident Cook

Friendship On Purpose {And A Giveaway}

It's the late afternoon when we roll into the city. None of us have eaten in I-don't-know-how-many-hours, our bellies rumbling with anticipation. The gentlemen is ready at the ticket stand to whisk our bags onto the luggage cart and spin us around through the revolving door with a practiced efficiency.  We're giggly, like school girls, away for the weekend without our usual entourage of children, eleven and under. We're breathing easier...
