The first few of these columns will be repeats from my other blog. That way I can transfer what should have been on this one! This will make it easier for everyone to find the column they are looking for later.
After spending my life believing that God was someone who was angry with me, I came to know Him through some friends I met at a MOPs (Mothers of Preschoolers) meeting. In 1999, I was married with three children. I went to the meetings to learn how to be a better wife and mother because I never felt "good enough". And I was making myself and my family miserable trying to be.
Through the Bible study at MOPs, I learned what it meant when people said, "Jesus loves you." My husband had been a Christian his whole life but for me this was a new real experience, something more than just a head experience. My family started attending services and Sunday School at the same church where the MOPs meetings were held. It made all the difference in world to me.
A few months later, I was baptized with my oldest son, with my husband standing with me.
At the bottom of this page is my playlist of some Christian music that might perk up your workout or cleaning routine. If you want to hear a different song on the list, you can click on it. You can also adjust the volume or just turn it completely off. To hear the music, you will have to go to the bottom to turn it on.
There are many different types of songs on the list. Some of them you may not like. Some of them I guarantee you are more of your kid's style than yours. The important thing to find in work out music is a song that encourages to move at a faster pace than you would ordinarily feel like doing! The ideal playlist will have a couple of "slower" songs at the beginning, pick up the pace in the middle, and then end "slower" again.
My preference for workout music is a "club" type beat for cardio and a heavy rock beat for weight lifting. Good luck finding your favorite mix!
Toss all of the following ingredients into the crockpot first thing in the morning...
2 lbs browned Ground Turkey or Beef 1 chopped medium onion 4 diced celery stocks 1 handful of diced baby carrots 5 diced potatoes (red or brown, your choice) 1/2 can of beef broth 1 can of cream of celery soup
Cook on low setting for 8 hours.
About 2 or 3 hours before dinner (depending on when your schedule allows), make 6 servings of instant mashed potatoes. Spread over top of crockpot fixings.
This will form a crust layer on the top.
Sprinkle top with a layer of cheddar cheese. (If it is possible do this a half an hour before, if it's not then sprinkle on top before serving.)
