  • Corrie ten Boom story offers reason to always give thanks

    One of my “heroes of the faith” is Dutch Holocaust survivor, Corrie ten Boom. She wrote about her experiences with the Nazis during World War II in her autobiography, “The Hiding Place.” This book literally changed my life. Though it is not very “manly” to admit, I wept as I read page after page of not only God miraculously intervening to preserve the lives of Corrie and her sister Betsie but also of love overcoming evil. If you need an example of the Christian faith applied to real life, look no further than Corrie ten Boom.

  • Lonnie offers vegetable casserole with chicken

    During the winter, it is often hard to come up with really good fresh vegetable meals. Tomatoes are never as good as the summer, however, I will buy the tomatoes on the stems because they do taste a lot better to me. I much prefer to use frozen vegetables because they also seem more like fresh vegetables, and frankly, the frozen vegetables do retain more of their nutrients. There are always good ways to cook the frozen vegetables and you don’t have to cook them to death, you can still have them al dente.
