A Cookbook


I'm still shaking a little bit... from the excitement, and well, the reality that it's really happening.

I signed a contract to write a cookbook today! I was honored to be contacted by Herald Press to write a cookbook. They are a Christian company and I felt it was God's leading in my life. I have wanted to write a cookbook but wasn't sure at which point in my life would be best. I was thinking it would be more like when I was 40. The more I thought and prayed about it, God seemed to think that now was a good time. As well as my sister, Faith, who says you only get busier as your children get older:) She's also offered her two older boys to come keep Caroline some days while I write.



I am excited to be able to have all my recipes in one place. I still look up my recipes on my blog from my phone; and have the biggest mess of handwritten recipes one ever did see. If no one buys my cookbook at least I will be happy to have them organized:)

 There will be photos for each recipe.

I don't want this to be about me; but about giving glory to our great Creator who gave us creative minds and beautiful foods to cook with. I want to teach others to cook from scratch and create inspiration to help feed your family well. 

 There will be some lifestyle photos mixed in.

So if you don't see much of me here, I am working on new recipes for you!

With love,
Hope

Caroline Turns 3

Caroline turned three yesterday so we celebrated with a butterfly party. She reminds me of a butterfly fluttering around- so it seemed fitting to use butterflies as a theme. This year her birthday really seemed to 'click' and she anticipated the day for weeks. She brings so much joy to our home- we are so grateful for her precious life.

 Birthday breakfast.










 We colored eggs with the children. They had so much fun.
 




With Love,
Hope

Happy Spring!

Oh, how I love Spring. The days are getting longer and daffodils are blooming. I'm dreaming of summer meals already!



We made donuts when it snowed in MARCH.
 

We are so grateful for God's precious gift to us.

We weren't sure if we could have any children and now
to think we will be a family of four! My heart goes out to 
anyone suffering from infertility... God cares for you and
will carry you every step of the way.  


We picked some daffodils to celebrate Spring today!




Blessings!
