Wishing you a blessed week of remembering the sacrifice Christ made for us and celebrating our risen Savior! “Love so amazing, so divine, demands my soul, my life, my all!” – Isaac Watts
With honor and gratitude to those who have given their lives, and to their families who have also known great sacrifice, we wish you all a Happy Memorial Day!
I’m sure your family has certain holiday foods that you look forward to enjoying each year. Not only to taste, but to anticipate, prepare, smell…. oh, the season of cozy warmth, deep spices, and quality family time! For us, it would be hard to imagine a holiday spread without our Sweet Potato Souffle from our family cookbook, Tasty Traditions. In fact, we almost crossed it off the menu this year for various reasons, but nooooo. It is now in the freezer just waiting to jump into the oven on the Big Day of Gratitude (it is also anticipating being gobbled up with delight, just like the turkey).
We hope you are all enjoying the days that are passing so quickly and savoring every delicious moment to the fullest. There truly is much for which to be thankful!
These fun and adorable treats are perfect for building relationships with the small people in your life. Watch smiles form and grow as you build your turkeys with your children, siblings, nieces & nephews, or little friends. And besides, who doesn’t like to have miniature turkeys around for the week of Thanksgiving?
You will need:
Oreo cookies – 1 per turkey
Large marshmallows – 1/2 per turkey
Candy Corn – five per turkey, plus a few extra
Small amount of frosting
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon milk
Mix all ingredients to make frosting.
Assemble your birds:
Spread a little frosting onto a cookie.
Press half of a marshmallow (cut around the middle “east/west” fashion) onto the cookie, NOT centered.
Place 5 candy corn evenly spaced above the marshmallow. These are the feathers that make your gobbler’s fan.
Break a tiny piece from one of the extra candy corns, and stick it to the marshmallow with a teeny bit of frosting. This is the gobbler’s beard.
Your bird is complete!
We are excited to announce that we have a new division of goods at our online Market, featuring free downloads. The “fire-starter” for this is an all-new personal calendar that was designed by a homemaking pro: our hero mother! She put this together with all the specs that she finds most helpful in her roles as wife, homemaker, and homeschooling mother.
Welcome in the New Year with beautiful pages for your paper “brain!”

We are selling our Lyon & Healy Troubadour III, age unknown. The soundboard and levers were replaced in 2015. The rest of the harp is in like-new condition, and is structurally sound. This harp has a beautiful lever harp tone – clear, vibrant, and it carries well. It would make an excellent student instrument or gig harp. We are asking $3200.
Feel free to contact us with additional questions.
When once I mourned a load of sin,
When conscience felt a wound within,
When all my works were thrown away,
When on my knees I knelt to pray,
Then, blissful hour, remembered well,
I learned Thy love, Immanuel!
When storms of sorrow toss my soul,
When waves of care around me roll,
When comforts sink, when joys shall flee,
When hopeless griefs shall gape for me,
One word the tempest’s rage shall quell,
That word, Thy name, Immanuel!
When for the truth I suffer shame,
When foes pour scandal on my name,
When cruel taunts and jeers abound,
When “Bulls of Bashan” gird me round,
Secure within Thy tower I’ll dwell,
That tower, Thy grace, Immanuel!
When hell, enraged, lifts up her roar,
When Satan stops my path before,
When fiends rejoice and wait my end,
When legion’d hosts their arrows send,
Fear not, my soul, but hurl at hell
Thy battle-cry, Immanuel!
When down the hill of life I go,
When o’er my feet death’s waters flow,
When in the deep’ning flood I sink,
When friends stand weeping on the brink,
I’ll mingle with my last farewell,
Thy lovely name, Immanuel!
When tears are banished from mine eye,
When fairer worlds than these are nigh,
When Heaven shall fill my ravish’d sight,
When I shall bathe in sweet delight,
One joy all joys shall far excel,
To see Thy face, Immanuel!
by Charles H. Spurgeon
