  • I was in a bookstore a few weeks ago and noticed that a well-known Christian speaker and author had recently released a book called “Change Your Words, Change Your Life.” I was immediately struck by the title. If a person is looking for a positive change in his or her life, this book may hold the answer. After all, the promise seems straightforward and simple — if I can alter the way I speak, then this will alter the way I live. But is this true?

  • There’s something so satisfying about making soup.

    It’s very easy to do; just add meat, vegetables, and spices to a pot with water or stock and cook. It’s the end result that makes all the time waiting worth it.      This particular soup is very interesting to me because of all the garnishes that really help to enhance the soup to another level. Feel free to also add jalapeno slices, diced tomatoes, chopped scallions or chopped onions as well to liven the soup up.

  • November is the month for the second annual Hispanic Arts and Crafts Show.
