FINALLY!!!  IT’S HERE!!! I know I promised this recipe back at the end of February, but honestly, after completing the Daniel Fast, I really wasn’t interested in any meals that did not include meat.  Now that I am past that, and the fact that my wife keeps returning to the Daniel Fast as her fast […]

It has been some time since my last post, and there’s been good reason.  My family is enduring a major crisis right now, one for which we could have never prepared.  Most mornings I have difficulty getting out of bed.  I came close to dropping out of my graduate program, which would have been an […]
