Hey everyone! I pray everyone is having a blessed week so far! I am finally feeling ‘settled’ in after our big move, so I thought I’d share some of the photos of our rental home, and tell you the crazy story behind this move!
I also want to share an awesome opportunity that God brought my way… So, here we go!
Here is a picture of our one bedroom apartment that we have lived in for the past three years! It was hard to say goodbye, as it was our very first place as a married couple, but I knew it would be so nice to have more space! (It was getting to the point where I was running out of places to ‘hide’ things. I even had food stored in my laundry room!)
Hello Zucchini & Squash Season! If you have zucchini and squash in abundance right now, you are not alone! Check out these zucchini I just recently received from a friend!
The Dashing 30 Day Devotional was something that was on my heart to write for a long time. It all began one day when I was taking a walk, listening to a Christian book on my iPod. I began to think about how God had used books, sermon series, study guides, and devotionals so many times throughout my life to get me rooted in the truth in certain areas.
Suddenly, and idea came to me…I should write out a 30 day devotional using the truths that God has shown me over the years. As I sat down to write, I suddenly became flooded with a desire to go through my journal entries. These were the very truths that have set me free over the years when God was leading to me to a place of freedom in the area of my weight, my eating habits, and most importantly, my complete surrender to Him. As He began to reveal His higher purpose for me during this time in my life, I began to relinquish control, along with my fears, doubts, and anxieties about my weight.
I believe the Lord had me write the 30 day devotional as a way to bring revelation of His love, His freedom, and His victory that He has provided for each one of His daughters in the area of weight and true beauty!
So, if you haven’t already done so…Be sure to download your copy of the Dashing Dish 30 Day Devotional and get started today!
If you’ve ever seen the Food Network show “Throwdown”, then you are familiar with the judging process that takes place between two winning recipes!
I had so many awesome entries for my Protein Shake contest, that I simply couldn’t pick a winner on my own. So, in order to pick a winner, I decided to do a “Dashing Dish Protein Shake Throwdown”… That way, I had three un-biased judges doing the judging!
Watch the video below to see the judging process take place, and see the winner of the contest, and proud new owner of the Professional Ninja Blender! Be sure to check out the Recipe for the Winning Shake Here! Thank you so much to all who entered!
This past week, God has brought a lot of really neat opportunities my way, so I thought I’d fill you guys in on the latest happenings!
First, I participated in an event called “Girls on the Run”, which is an awesome 5K run in Michigan. The objective of Girls on the Run is to educate and empower girls at an early age in order to prevent the display of at-risk activities in the future. At risk activities include substance/alcohol use, eating disorders, early onset of sexual activity, sedentary lifestyle, depression, suicide attempts and confrontations with the juvenile justice system. How awesome is that!?! I just knew I had to partner up with them!
Hey everyone! Just wanted to clarify the payment for the membership, and what it’s all about, because there seems to be a lot of confusion…
From day one I have been offering the DD membership for pay what you can afford, or for FREE if you can’t afford to pay anything! (Most people are seeming to miss this…My husband and I agreed that God told us to offer it for a donation basis of pay what you want to support DD, or for free if you could not pay).
As most of you may know, I left my full time nursing job to minister to women in this area, because I truly feel that it is what God called me to do. If Dashing Dish has ministered to you (through recipes, devotionals, etc.) , I would ask that you would prayerfully consider supporting the work behind Dashing Dish.
First off I want to thank everyone so much from the bottom of my heart for all the compliments on the site! I loved being able to show you guys what my hubby and I have been working on for the past 9 months! We have lot’s more in store for you all so I’m just thankful that I get to be involved with this journey with all of you. As you may already know, it’s been a very busy week with the launch so if you wrote me an email, I’ll try to get to it as soon as possible! I also just wanted to share some stuff with you!
Welcome to the new and improved Dashing Dish website! It’s been a while in the making, 9 months to be exact! What a great present for Dashing Dish’s two year anniversary. My husband has devoted many nights working to perfect every detail on this website so that it will be organized and easy to use. As some of you may or may not know, I left my nursing position to pursue Dashing Dish as my full time career (read story here). I have spent the last 9 months developing meal plans, premium content, health coaching services, devotionals, and workout routines just for you! I’m so excited to share all the new features that have been added, so let’s get cooking!
Hey everyone! I hope you enjoyed the 12 days of Christmas and the Chobani Giveaways! I wanted to wish all of my readers a very Merry Christmas and a happy new year! You really have made this year so great and I appreciate all the comments and emails!
I’ll be taking a break from recipe making and post updates until the new year and spending some much needed quality time with the husband and family! I have so many big things planned for 2012 so get ready! God Bless and enjoy the Holiday!
Merry Christmas to each and every one of you! I pray you have a blessed time with your family and friends, and that you feel the Love of Jesus Christ this Christmas!!!
