  I have never been a huge fan of peanut butter cookies. It isn’t that I don’t like the flavor of them… it is just that they are so inconsistent. You never know what you are going to get when you bite into a homemade peanut butter cookie. Is it going to be crunchy? Will […]

Overheard

Jacob and his friend Caden were playing in his room today. I think they were playing Rescue Heroes or something. Peeking in on them I heard Caden say something to the fact that “God is in charge”…a common thing they heard at Vacation Bible School a few weeks ago. Then, to respond, Jacob said “God […]
