“I assure you the church is not in need of more girls in their late teens and early twenties who are investing their lives in relationships with young men.  What we do need, however, is an army of young women with laser-sharp focus on the Lord and His bride.  We need more young women serving, praying, and giving.  We need more young women developing and using the spiritual gifts and talents with which they have been blessed.”

~Voddie Baucham, “What He Must Be”

This book is the autobiography of Isobel Kuhn, and how she became a missionary.  Not a dry book at all!  She writes it in a very engaging way 🙂


For those of you following Courageous… 😀




English Muffins

                                                             -pictured with blueberry peach jam

1 c. milk

2 T. sugar

1 pkg. yeast (or 2 1/4 tsp.)

1 c. warm water (110° F)

1/4 c. oil

6 c. flour

1 t. salt


  Warm the milk in a small saucepan until it bubbles, then remove from heat.  Mix in the sugar, stirring until dissolved.  Let cool until lukewarm.  In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water.  Let stand until creamy and bubbly, about 10 minutes.

In a large bowl, combine the milk, yeast mixture, oil and 3 cups of flour.  Beat until smooth.  Add salt and the rest of the flour. or enough to make a soft dough.  Knead until smooth and elastic (where you can make a small indentation in the dough and it springs back).  Place in a greased bowl, cover, and let rise.

Punch down.  Roll out to about 1/2 inch thickness and cut rounds with a biscuit cutter, drinking glass or empty tuna can.  Sprinkle waxed paper with cornmeal and set the rounds on this to rise.  Dust tops of muffins with cornmeal also.  Cover and let rise for 1/2 hour.

Heat your oven to 300° F AND your griddle to .  Pre-bake muffins for 12 minutes in oven, then cook them on the griddle for about 10 minutes on each side.  Keep baked muffins in a warm oven until all have been cooked.  Allow to cool and place in plastic bags for storage.  To use, split and toast.  These are SO good, and taste just as good or better than store bought !  We loved them!






Your DNA song

 While we were at the music camp earlier last month, Dr. Garlock spoke briefly on how our DNA can be translated into music, and vice versa.  We came home and Googled it, hoping to find examples 😀  Amazing!  Everything about us sings praises to our Creator!  If you’re interested in hearing what you’re DNA sounds like in music, save your pennies…it only costs €700 or $895 😀

We’ve just put up a new page–kind of like an “about us” page, so you can see us all “in order” and our interests, and best of all, some of our fun memories 😀



 Thoughts of a Young Christian Woman of America

We just recently found this young lady’s blog and have been enjoying reading her posts 😀  She is engaged to be married and talks about how her brothers-and-sisters-in-law-to-be like to tease them 😀    She also shares about the questions she gets for wearing a headcovering…and we can quite relate 😀  It was also fun reading about her siblings-in-law-to-be and their overlapping conversations…sounds like us sometimes!

 The other day Isaiah asked for “one of thos’ snapper things”–a hair clip 😀


We have been enjoying watching “Heartstrings” and “Bubble Trouble” (www.heumoore.com)  these past few days (and rewatching them!) and Isaiah asked us just yesterday if we could watch “Bubble Gum Trouble” again!


Isaiah informed Leah one day that there were blueberries in the freezer and that they were “frozing”.


 One day while we were cutting up peaches, Leah got cut on a sharp end of a peach pit and her finger began to bleed.  Charissa saw it and exclaimed, “Oh!  That makes me gross out!”

Note: The Seven Sisters Treasures is a weekly post where we share some of our favorite things.  Hope you enjoy!  ~the Farmgirls

      😀 We found it last night (and stayed up maybe a tad too late?!) and then today I was reading and reading, and laughing, and telling anyone within hearing range and willing to listen about what I was reading 😀

    We love Heumoore productions….we have mutual friends with the Moores, and it’s fun- to hear stories, etc 🙂
    Bubble trouble- I think it’s a little -er- strange to see my brothers reenacting it. 😀
