  • My experience of motherhood, and I do not mean to limit that reality to the physical process of giving birth, certainly revolves about and evolves from questioning and being questioned. Memories of my earliest parenting days resound with interrogations. “Where are you?” “What are you doing?” “Have you washed your hands?” “Did you say ‘thank you’?” “What did you say???” I am sure that my children thought of me as the Grand Inquisitor.

  • One Harvest Ministries is not your typical food ministry. It was founded with the idea of meeting the needs of anyone who wants access to high quality, nutritional food at savings up to 50 percent off.
    Anyone can use this blessing: single moms, senior citizens, young married couples or anyone on a budget.
    Prices are similar to Angel Food Ministries. For $35, a box of groceries will feed a family of four for a week. A family box includes meats, vegetables, soups and a dessert, but boxes also can be set up to include meats only or vegetables only.

  • Have you ever had a really fantastic meal at a restaurant that you wish you could duplicate at home? If only you knew the exact ingredients…how to prepare that special sauce…and how long to cook it.
