Carlene Shares her favorite Bible verse and a favorite recipe

Carlene’s favorite Bible verse (today) is John 3:17: “For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.”

Carlene admits her favorite verse seems to change fairly often, but usually comes either from John or Romans.


December is Carlene’s month to invade her husband’s domain, the kitchen.  She loves to make Christmas treats both to serve and to give away.  She loves quick, easy recipes that yield something cute as well as tasty.  One of her favorites is this simple, no-bake recipe for holiday mints.

Holiday Mints

Thoroughly blend one cup confectioner's sugar for each ounce of cream cheese. Mix and flavor with peppermint extract to taste (I use at least two tablespoons for a batch of 4 cups sugar/4 oz cheese, but I love mint.)

Shape into small balls and allow to dry for at least an hour or two, in the fridge if it’s a warm day.

Dip in melted white chocolate coating after drying. Sprinkle something festive from the cupboard on top, and your mints are both decorative and yummy.




About Song of the Shepherd Woman

In the first century, Channa’s stepfather gives her to her maternal great-uncle Avram to raise.  He is known to be a peculiar, perhaps dangerous, man with a wife who cannot speak.  Nevertheless, they are kind to Channah and teach her how to care for sheep. When her stepfather unexpectedly announces her betrothal to a Jerusalem tanner, the girl is forced to leave the only home she knows.

The ebook is available at an introductory price of 99 cents for a while, and it’s available just about everywhere.  Here are a couple of links.

Looking Out The Window: Linda Rondeau Talks About Her New Book, Hosea's Heart, Shares A Devotional, Gives Away An E-book

A Warm Welcome to Linda Rondeau
Linda will give away an e-book of Hosea's Heart. To enter to win leave a comment and an email address below
Linda Shares a Devotional based on a passage from Hosea
Hosea Chapter 12 talks about Jacob's journey, how God called him and blessed him though he'd been a deceiver, how he wrestled with the angel until he submitted.

Jacob's family was riddled with strife. With two wives, sisters who obviously had serious jealousy issues, and two concubines who squabbled as well, and twelve sons who fought continuously. So fierce was there jealousy, they plotted to murder their little brother. Joseph's story is familiar. God used the dysfunction of a family to save a nation. Family rife is as old as Cain and Abel and sometimes with just as serious consequences.

In Hosea’s Heart, my main character, Aubrey Beaumont, worried for his children because of his addicted wife’s choices. Darlene became an overachiever, Paul excelled in golf and sought a…

June shares one of her favorite Bible verses and a delicious recipe to nourish us body and soul.
"For I am convinced that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things present nor things to come, not powers, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 8:38-39

Thank you for the comforting verse.

Hi Pamela, first, tell us a little about yourself.

Thanks for having me Gail! I am a mother and grandmother, author, editor, promotions expert. I am a licensed insurance agent and am studying to be certified as a Life Coach. Those are the many hats I wear. On a more personal level I am a woman of God whose soul (and sole) purpose is to share my faith, knowledge and experience with others and in doing so, (hopefully) in some small way, soften hearts, open minds and touch lives.

Many writers were avid readers as children. Were you? If so, what did you read?

YES always! I’ve been an avid reader as far back as I remember and I read horse books (Black Stallion series, Misty of Chincoteague, etc.) voraciously. In fact, I still love horse s…
