Marzetti’s Twin Slaw Dressing

I love slaw but Marzetti’s dressing (the best dressing for slaw on this planet!) is a little pricy. So, to save a couple pennies I use the following recipe and really, it is hard to tell the difference. Give it a try yourself:

Marzettis Twin Slaw DressingIngredients:

2 Cups mayonnaise

2/3 cups sugar

1/4 cup white distilled vinegar

2 tablespoons prepared mustard

Celery salt to taste

Pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients together until they are smooth and creamy and sugar is completely dissolved. Use what you need on your favorite slaw, mine is here: Fruity Coleslaw.  Store unused portion in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator.

GREATER – Movie Review

GREATER premiers in theaters Friday, August 26, 2016

greater moview review 1

Recently I was asked to review the movie GREATER which will arrive in theaters Friday, August 26, 2016. This is a true story about determination and victory despite overwhelming odds for failure. It is about a young man with incredible faith who persevered to become what might be the greatest walk-on college football player of all time.

The Story

Even at a young age growing up in rural Arkansas Brandon Burlsworth had only one dream: to play football with the Arkansas Razorbacks. He was a chubby kid with little talent. He endured teasing and unkind words from his teammates and even the other kids at school. His father (Michael Parks) was a drunk and so Brandon was essentially raised by this mother (Leslie Easterbrook) and brother Marty (Neal McDonough), who was many years his senior and often mistaken as his father. Brandon came to know the Lord at an early age.

As time progresses and you see Brandon grow up on screen into the burly football player (Christopher Severio) you can’t help but notice his unbelievably strong walk with the Lord. His mother shares his strong faith and regularly encourages him to study the Bible and maintain a close walk with the Lord. His mother helped him to believe that he could do anything as long as he worked hard for it. Though his brother Marty was married with children of his own, he spent time with Marty and often accompanied him at sporting events. Continue reading

Kari Jobe: a passion in her heart

Every Day Christian Music

Born and raised by Mark & Caroline Jobe, Kari Jobe has had a passion for music and loved to sing even from a young age. After accepting Christ at five and growing up in a Christian home, Kari knew when she was 10 that she wanted to be a worship leader and nothing else. She would listen to songs and think about how they would apply to her life or someone she knew that was dealing with a trial in their life. She had a passion and in her heart she wanted to write songs that could speak for someone when they couldn’t find the words. Continue reading

Rejoicing and weeping

“Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.” — Romans 12:15

Someone tells a great joke and everyone laughs. You hear that Sally’s long time prayer has been answered and everyone rejoices. You go to the park with the other young Moms and you enjoy great conversation and genuine joy as you watch the children play together. Tragedy strikes and you get that unexpected call to participate in the prayer chain for your church family. Cancer has finally run its course and your Daddy is taken home to be with the Father in Heaven. Continue reading
