Many of you know how strongly I feel about providing immunizations to children in developing countries.  The cost of protecting a child in an underdeveloped country against the six deadliest, preventable diseases is less than $20, however extreme poverty means that, without massive vaccination programs, these immunizations are out of reach to the general population. Pneumonia, diarrhea, malaria and measles are the primary … [Read more...]

Ultimate Guide to Incorporating Hanukkah

Screen shot 2012-11-28 at 1.09.01 AM

I'm often met with puzzled looks when I share that we celebrate Hanukkah. Why would I, a Christian, celebrate Hanukkah? We know that Jesus celebrated Hanukkah at the Temple (John 10:22).  If it was important to Jesus then there should be no problem with Christians taking part in this Festival of Lights.  As we reflect on the birth of our Savior,  we can rededicate our lives to Christ as we acknowledge Him as the perfect … [Read more...]

I used to wonder why my grandmothers were always in the kitchen cooking and making it their mission to get food into our tummies. Now I get it! Unfortunately, I'm not much of a cook. I can bake like a pro but when it comes to the meat and … [Read more...]
