“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him; and without him was not anything made that hath been made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men.” John 1:1-4

I wanted to start with this because this is the beginning. This is the first real blog. With some of the trials i am enduring in life right now i have to lean solely on the word. So much voice in the world, and in my past tell me to do differently. I’m so blessed to have a community of people around me that remind me of this daily though. Community is so important in our everyday walks and in our everyday lives.

Today’s culture screams at us to go at it alone and do it ourselves. It tells us “if you can’t take the heat, stop cooking and hit the drive thru.” 

Well all i believe in tells me we have to “counter culture”. And if you can’t take the heat, check the recipe and call a friend. Or how about a best friend. 

I recently got the chance to cook something amazing with someone amazing. When we both didn’t know what to do, we asked her sister. So like in our lives when shit hits the fan, yes i used that word because any other word would have had the same meaning, but back to the text…

When things get crazy in our lives we have to share it with someone close while seeking spiritual guidance. So all in all, the word is our recipe, and the one we call to be by our side, is our Sous Chef. Together we can create a tasty meal. Together, we can be A light.

By the way: the tamales turned out great 😉
