Bring Your Thanksgivings to Dinner

Thanksgiving dinner is a meal we all look forward to every year. One way to make this mealtime more intentionally focused on giving thanks is to send a note, called a Thanksgiving Ticket, to family and friends who will be attending. Request they fill their ticket with thanksgivings and bring it with them to the meal. The ticket you send each guest is made from a piece of brown craft paper 3 or 4 inches wide and 3 feet long.  At the top {Read More}

We Thank You God

We Thank You God We thank you, God, for sun and rain And golden grain that trembles in the breeze; For wind and snow and seeds that grow To high and mighty trees. We thank you, God, for a warm embrace, Autumn’s grace that has no counterpart; For dreams and books, a sky that looks Like water-colored art. We thank you, God, for those we love For You above, and ever so much more . . . ~ Anonymous About {Read More}

Mini Chocolate Pecan Pies

There are a few things that make me question my legitimacy as a good Southern girl. I don’t like sweet tea (gasp!). And I don’t like pecan pie. Now I don’t know what to do about the sweet tea but I’ve found a way to make pecan pies not only bearable but absolutely crave-worthy. These mini chocolate pecan pies maximize the buttery, flaky pie crust and the lovely pecan halves with just enough chocolate filling to hold them together! The {Read More}

Maple Sausage and Cranberry Dressing

My grandmother’s Thanksgiving dressing is the stuff of legends. It gets requested by other friends and family for their Thanksgiving celebrations.  When our family is done eating our Thanksgiving dinner, everyone packs up some of the dressing to take home and enjoy later. I was inspired by how her food brings others such joy and so I experimented to create a complex-flavored and delicious dressing recipe for the “Friendsgiving” celebration I had with my friends. Maple sausage and cranberry dressing {Read More}

A Year of Thankfulness

This has been for me a year of thankfulness. It started with my husband moving back home in January after living in another state for six months. It was a great way to start the year, but it was also a reminder that the trial we stepped back from while he was gone was still waiting for us. We have been in a trial since 2012 that has made me more thankful than ever. God has reminded me in this {Read More}

Favorite Thanksgiving Books for Families

During the month of November I intentionally share books highlighting the story of Thanksgiving with my children. On a table the books are displayed for leisurely perusing during free time. In the afternoon, during the week, we sit together to read through one of the books, several of which only take a few minutes. No matter their age, it is important to remind my children of the courage of the Pilgrims, Indians, and the hand of God upon them all. {Read More}

Cat-itudes of Gratitude

As we were trying to rearrange the garage years ago, I told my husband the cat-carrier should go to Goodwill since we no longer had a cat. My husband vetoed the idea saying one day we might have another cat. For a man who used to say he hated cats, my husband has owned (or been owned by) an incredible number of cats. It all started with Smoky, a scrawny dark kitten I rescued from the clutches of a vicious {Read More}
