The Juice Experiment

Tori 3 Comments

My husband and I recently watched the documentary Fat Sick & Nearly Dead, and we were both pretty amazed by the health benefits juicing seemed to offer. We discussed it that night, and decided we were going to buy a juicer and give it a whirl ourselves. Nothing to lose, …

I have had the movie “Freedom Writers” in my Netflix queue for quite some time, and finally sat down to watch it last night. I have to say, it was an incredible movie! It is based on the true story of teacher Erin Gruwell, and how she changed the lives …

Homemade French Bread

Back on October of 2010, I had posted the recipe I use for French bread. Since then it has been pinned numerous times on Pinterest, but since I archived my old blog, it is now an invalid link. Whoops!  I figured I should probably put it back up here, and …

Through Christ’s love and sacrifice, we have been sanctified. His blood has set us free! So, what is our responsibility now? What is it that we need to do, in order to claim victory through Jesus? First, we need to accept and believe that Jesus is God’s son, that He …
