Bulking Up


About once every 4-6 weeks we have a big bulk-cooking Saturday. Emilia graciously comes and bring Marlene to play with the girls while we three adults cook away the morning. Between the three of us we’re able to help with kid needs throughout the morning and also knock out a month’s worth of meals for the deep freeze.


Matt is our wiz at finding Africa-friendly recipes online.


Emilia is my potato cutting buddy and we often enjoy chatting while slicing away. See how terribly sad she is that I’m not sitting right beside her in this exact moment? 😉

The kids often enjoy a morning of water play, play dough, movies or whatever else they can get themselves into. 😉


Sometimes we go out to lunch afterward with Emilia and Marlene and sometimes we enjoy one of our meals fresh out of the pot with our sweet friends. =)

When naptime hits we are all beat, but we’re happy to cut down on HUGE amounts of meal prep time throughout the weeks since everything is cooked from scratch here.



Have you ever thought that the all-sufficient Savior has promised those who walk in blind faith more than our minds can ever comprehend? That the only True Savior renews our minds, even when we feel most useless toward His Kingdom work? The Lord of all dares to touch our hearts, even as we stumble to find obedience. Oh how this soul wishes we Christians would embrace His Truth! And that the world would be different because of obedient hearts. Lord, change me. Lord, change us. All for Your glory. ---------- I am a Jesus-follower, a Homemaker, a Wife of the best man EVER, a Mom of 4 wonderful girls, a missionary in Africa, a Friend, an Encourager, a Seeker of integrity who is unsatisfied with a mediocre walk in Christ, and Blessed beyond any words that I could ever express. Thanks for being interested in my little slice of the world.
