My Guide to Gluten Free Living.
You asked, I compiled. This is a post on living gluten free in Nashville and elsewhere, including websites, tips and tricks, great restaurants, and more. I will continue to update this as I travel the country. :) Great (and well-tested) gluten free friendly websites—from recipes to product shipping and everything in between. http://glutenfreegoddess.blogspot.com/ — this is my...
The prophet is silent...
…because, at that moment, it is not he who speaks, but another. The term ‘anointing’ gets thrown around so much these days…dare I say, it is ‘abused’? This is the best description I have read of it. Thanks to Fr. Cantalamessa for speaking these words, and my friend Iwona Major for posting it on Facebook today. “Anointed faith is what gives to a speech...
Chocolate Coconut & Date Bites
Coconut. It’s my favorite, not just because it tastes great (which it does)—but also because it has some amazing health benefits. It’s gotten a bad rap from the low-fat movement because of its high fat content—but the fat in coconut is a medium chain fatty acid (MCFA) which requires no special enzymes to digest, the way many other fats do. MCFAs are sent immediately to our livers...
we are myth-makers.
“We have come from God, and inevitably the myths woven by us, though they contain error, will also reflect a splintered fragment of the true light, the eternal truth that is with God.” –J.R.R. Tolkien
Cream-free "creamed" spinach.
Tried this recipe today, and it turned out great, so I thought I would share! It was my first experience working with sunchokes (also known as Jerusalem artichokes) and I plan on doing so again. If you’re wondering what the heck a Jerusalem artichoke, it’s not from Jerusalem, and it’s not an artichoke. Go figure. It’s the tuber of a sunflower plant native to North...

…for once again articulating beautifully the things that are deep within my heart. “It was the error of the Reformation period that for the most part we could only see what divided us and we failed to grasp existentially what we have in common in terms of the great deposit of sacred Scripture and the early Christian creeds. For me, the great ecumenical step forward of recent decades is...

Thoughts from the road.
Written Aug. 3rd, 2012 Hey World, I’m Sorry. Love, Grumpy I’m out at Soulfest in Gilford, New Hampshire among the pine trees and ski lifts and rolling green hills this week. Today was a really good day, and I felt compelled here near the end of it to put a grateful word or two out into the abyss of the web. Too many days pass where I don’t do that, and I am resolved that today won’t be one...

The Cancer Year
Hey friends! I recorded an EP with some of my friends to raise money to offset the cost of Billy’s cancer treatments. My husband was diagnosed in 2011 with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and just finished 6 months of chemotherapy: he has no evidence of disease anymore, which is AMAZING—but that comes at a high price. Rather than ask for donations, we decided to make an EP and offer it to you...
The Cancer Year →
Many have asked how they can help us offset the cost of my husband’s cancer treatment. We still have not paid a bill: adjusting the costs through insurance is, as any of you who have gone through sickness know, a very confusing process. One thing we do know—the rising total is too much for us to pay on our own. Billy didn’t want to ask for donations, per se: but he came up with...
