“I had this idea for a show…” – Barbara Walters

Why am I quoting Babwa Wawa??? Because I have this idea for a blog…

I would like to publish an on-line cookbook initially as a wordpress.com blog under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Sharealike 3.0 US license and I would like it to be “user contributed”!!! I would act as editor/contributor, any recipes submitted would remain the property of the contributor with full credits given.  If this goes well, perhaps a real, honest-to-god book with pages and everything!!! could find it’s way to a publisher/printer/bookstore or on-line retailer near you…

Wanna help?   Wanna participate?  Wanna tell me I’m nutz?  comment to this post and, based on response, we’ll see what the next step is.

Philippians 1:6

(So… here it is… I will most likely be writing this in sections… a little bit at a time, because I never have very much time at one time…)

“being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it” – Phil 1:6

This verse has become so important to me. Because, GOD began a good work in me when I was a very small child and, regardless of my desires and my plans and my banal stupidity, GOD is nothing if not faithful to HIS word.

I was born into and raised in a wonderful, loving, Christian home. My parents did everything they could to model CHRIST and CHRISTlike behavior. We attended church regularly (too regularly?) and I was always active in Sunday School, Youth Group, VBS and those types of things. I prayed. I memorized Scriptures. In 2nd grade, I began attending Heritage Christian School in Indianapolis, IN. Each and everyday brought prayer and biblical teaching. I attended conferences. I both attended and led bible studies. After a brief foray into public school in 8th, 9th and 10th grades, I graduated from Scottsdale Christian Academy in 1993.
