Hungry for Something Good? Join The Holy Éclair Launch Team!

It sounds crazy, I know. Even as I wiped the chocolate from my lips and savored the heavenly goodness, I wondered if it was real. Had God really spoken to me through French pastry?

Pilgrim Steps: Hungry? How’s About a Snack?

I was planning to blog tonight about a heavier subject- about the fascinating/weird place Jesus took the disciples on retreat and what it had to do with the famous question he asked Peter. So why is my featured photo one of a street bread cart in Jerusalem? You can blame Rosie. Rosie is our new [...]
