    in Moms and Family

    What's for dinner? If you're like your hosts, that's an inconvenient question that’s batted around quite a bit in your home.

    Apparently, we're not alone! According to "Food Genius" founder Justin Massa during a recent National Public Radio interview, "…70 to 80% of Americans do not know what we're going to have for dinner at 4:00 p.m."

    The company, which analyzes data for the food industry, is just one resource grocers nationwide are using to fill the dinner gap for busy families, only today, the offerings are taking a turn towards a seemingly healthier trend. Keep in mind, convenience comes at a price! And another thing, do we really want big-box-grocers and other food engineers making decisions that were once the domain of the family cook? Hardly!

    Local chef and restaurant owner Davena Jernigan offers time saving tips from her treasure trove of food wisdom - tips that'll take the anxiety out of meal planning and inspire families to look no further than their own pantries for answers.

    So, what are you gonna do Monday morning? Listen to the Mommy Chronicles of course, ‘cause you know this show is just what you’ve been waiting for!

    Deliverence: The Pass Over Seder Meal and The Meaning

    in Religion

    Greetings! This will conclude the episodes on the Pass Over Feast, as Sunday, April 11, 2015 will be the close of the season. However, part two of this message will serve, and satify any questions you may have concerning deliverence. The bible say, "healing is the childrens bread." Deliverence belongs to you, the listener; look at this Seder Plate from that perspective, and understand what each role the elements on the plate play in your life. I want you to know that the Seder Meal commerates the departure of Isreal from Egyptian bondage. Pharo was a type of the devil, and Egypt was a type of sin; the Seder Meal is a type of deliverence for those who are in agreement with God to remember: according to Ex 12:14 "this day shall be a memorial unto you for ever....." There are promises associated with this covenat for your life, and family if you will be willing to take time out and remember the miracles which God did when delivering his people. I fully understand God concerning this request! If I had done such a great deed for anyone, such as this, I would wanna be commerated as well and so would you. Those miracles were powerful manifestations of God, his personality, and his love for his people.
