This week’s real food meal plan and agenda focus on changes of the season and personal life. Don’t miss some important news.
Spring has finally arrived! And with it comes lots of change. For our family it could be some BIG changes.
But just as we now sit and wait for spring weather to arrive we sit and wait for God’s plans for our family to unfold.
With these changes will come a lot of busyness in an already more than busy life. Which my body is not really up for. So I am taking a step back from my work. I need to focus on my kids right now and walking through this time of transition.
I’ll still be here. I’ll still post my meal plans every week. I’ll still be sharing things. But not at the same pace as usual. I hope you will still come alongside me and share this journey of healing, nourishing and feeding our children.
In the kitchen.
Now back to the task at hand…food! I’m not really sure what this week will bring so I’m trying not to plan too many projects. But my son is servant of the week at school. So we have to bring snack all week, which will require some extra work on my part. We don’t have the option of just picking up a box of crackers at the store. It’s all homemade. Here is what is on the kitchen project list so far:
On the blog.
Last week was a BIG week on the blog as I launched my first book. It is my hope that many people will be blessed by my story.
