Real Food

Even with Valentine’s Day over for another year, February is still a great time to discuss love, relationships and sugar. Each morning before the kids get up, Joan and I set aside time for coffee and Bible study. We both sit at the kitchen counter and if something pops up we want to discuss, we […]

You’ve all heard the saying, “The plumber’s sinks always leak.” No? How about, “The cobbler’s children have no shoes.” Haven’t heard that one either? This is becoming difficult!
