The Bible talks a lot about feasting, which is fitting because I make the best salads you’ve ever tasted. And I realize they don’t mention salads in the Bible, but that’s just because it was written before I was born. So here’s one of my recent favorites. BONUS FOOTAGE: The recipe for fruitfulness, found 2 Peter 1:3-8. And would y’all please memorize this with me?! My neighbor’s horses.
Last year I told y’all I was going to stop coloring my hair and let it do its thing. Since I’ve started posting videos though, a lot of people three people have asked if I’m still doing that. I am! And I don’t know why, buy my grays aren’t showing up on the videos. I’m not using any fancy filters (I wouldn’t even know how to use those), and I actually […]

First of all, here are some things I do to keep my anxiety at bay in the first place, which apparently don’t work very […]

I called from the kitchen, “He smells good! I smell him all the time – he’s like…like, warm and soft smelling.” “You’re right!
