Book cover

The Best Dinner I Never Ate

by Lori Prentice

The Best Dinner I Never Ate is a true story about our family’s experiences with housing needy families and individuals in our own home. Over the last three years we have had these people live with us temporarily, and for free, so they can have a place to stay while saving up money for their own housing. These experiences have been teaching our family about what is truly necessary in our lives, and what it looks like to show God’s love to others. It has also taught us how making time for loving strangers and going out of our comfort zone can leave a lasting impact on a life.

One particular homeless guest we recently housed encouraged us to publish our story. So far it has been inspiring many in our local community, but we believe in the power of the ripple effect. We believe this lesson can be far-reaching and spread Christ’s message of love and selflessness beyond our small town.

We are very far from a perfect family – each of us is a work in progress in our own way. Though we have many areas where we look to others for inspiration, this is one example of being willing to reach out to the vulnerable, the strangers, and the forgotten, even when it makes life harder on us. Help us share our message of love and hope.

The Proceeds from the sale of this book are going to Victim Services and to help the homeless.

How to Re-use Your Left Over Bread Bags….

Frugal Christian Living

Know what’s not fun?  (Besides your kids getting the stomach flu three different times in three weeks?)  Oh wait…I digress….

When your family all arrives at your house for a “smashing” birthday party, and you realize…….I forgot the ICE!!!!

And you have to send your wonderful husband out on a mad dash to get some….

(Oh the horror…)

Okay, well I guess there are worse things going on out there in the world.


(Spoiled Americans)

Anyway, when we finish a loaf of bread around here…..everybody knows not to throw away the bread bag…..

I then fetch the ice trays from the freezer….

And fill up the bag!  (I usually turn the bag inside out as well….to spare myself the embarrassment of my party guests finding crumbs floating in their drinks!)

Then I tie a knot at the top, and throw the bag in the deep freeze!

On party…

25 Ways to Communicate Respect

I like these ideas, since were looking to love our spouse this week and every week, this makes for a good read ! Be Creative Ladies !

Loving Life at Home

Actions speak louder than words. You can say you respect your husband, but he’ll have a hard time believing that unless your behavior backs it up.

What does respectful living look like? Here are 25 ways you can communicate respect to your spouse without uttering a word. If you’ll make it your habit to do these things, the next time you tell your husband how much you respect him, he won’t have to wonder if you really mean it.

  1. Choose Joy
    It’s true: A happy wife makes a happy life. Please don’t use moodiness as an attempt to manipulate your man, but in all things rejoice, because that’s the right thing to do. (1 Thessaonians 5:16; Philippians 4:4)
  2. Honor His Wishes
    Give weight to what your husband thinks is important. Make those things a priority that matter most to him, whether it’s having dinner ready when…

~ Training Our Daughters To Be Keepers At Home ~

~  I have been looking for books to use in teaching my daughters Faith and Hope about all the aspects of being A Keeper at Home. The above was highly recommended to me to use in doing so.  I looked for this and I really would like to buy someones used copy and not a new copy.

I have over the years recieved many great Magazines which I no longer get, not that I don’t want to get them, just currently cannot afford them.

~ Keepers At Home , Sugarcreek Ohio

~ Coming Home Journal , TN out of print , I have issues from before the Ekstein family took that over.

~ Women of Simplicity , PA Peggy Hostetlers Newsletter for women seeking to live a simple and godly lifestyle.

~ Sarahs Promise , also out of print I believe.

~ New Harvest Homestead, out of print , Lisa Vitello

~ An Encouraging Word , I have issues from before Homeschool Digest took that over.

and others…

I have saved many of them and I have copied pages of many that I thought applied to our lives here at home and I will draw lessons from what I have and add to that from other books and even old letters I have recieved in the past from other godly women.   I so miss the days of getting real and godly letters from sisters who were trying hard to encourage eachother in a walk of holiness.   Along my walk and way, I met a few sisters who were like minded with our stance on not keeping any pagan holidays ( We don’t judge anyone who does, we were once there ourselves, nor do we think that others will change for us. )  I Linda was raised this way since a girl of age 11, also raised to wear modest apparel and wear a head-covering on Lord’s Day in the Baptist church .  Yes my parents were Sunday worshipers   Mark and I believe that Sabbath will always be on Saturday , which is a sign between God and his Chosen ones.  We fully believe that we should worship the Lord Jesus, Yeshua everyday !  He alone deserves our daily praise and fellowship in prayer and lifestyle.   We choose to live a homestead, country lifestyle, wishing to provide food for ourselves and for others.  We want our children to live a simple God Yahweh fearing life that is pleasing to Him.  We want to instruct them in righteousness  and in the basics of life, so that someday they might be able to serve Him and Others.   We want them to be fully capable of growing up and caring for their own families someday.

All my children will learn to clean, cook, bake, sew, crochet (yes my boys can do this too.) Mend clothing, basic plumbing , electrical and construction skills. We  want them to also enjoy Music, Appreciate Art that is wholesome and uplifting and godly.

We are seeking likeminded fellow with other believers who Homeschool and who either have a fellowship or a home fellowship. I would love to have Sisters to write to and fellowship with ( If you wish to have a sister to write, email me @ and if email is ever not available hopefully I will already have your mailing address to write to you at.

We fully believe that we are in the Last Days , the time is short and we watch for Jesus Yeshua’s return daily.

Writing Secrets of 7 Scribes

Do you remember your first crush? Do you remember the first time you told someone you liked them? How big that was? I think back to the excitement I had the first time I put myself out on that limb. It was not something flippantly said or entered into lightly. My “like” was almost sacred. It was a way to say I was committed to someone, and even something.

I think of how committed I am to my favorite flavor of ice cream and brand of deodorant. I liked mint chocolate chip so much it is still my “go-to” flavor to this day, and the deodorant I liked will be forever on my closet shelf. The idea of it being discontinued brings on panicked feelings of doom—similar to the break-up feelings after my first crush. Ouch.

But I digress; the point here is that stating my likes was a way…
