Thank You!!

Just wanted to say thank you to all those who participated in the activity for this month. Our "This Little Piggy" activity was wonderful and some great information was shared. Lisa Johnson enlightened us on how to take advantage of the "Price Matching Guarantee" at Wal-Mart. She also gave us useful information on using coupons. Kerry Carpenter helped us all realize that we can have beautiful homes without having to spend a lot of money to decorate. Great organizing tips and decorating ideas were shared. Anya Mathews did a wonderful job explaining why we need to eat certain foods and helping us to think about what we eat and why. Vicki Hodes shared with us 10 things we need to be doing in order to keep our spiritual lamps full. Kristine Collier helped us to remember "Come What May and Love It!" There are always going to be roadblocks and trials in our lives but we need to remember that we are never alone and the Lord always  blesses the shoulder according to the burden. Thank you to all the wonderful ladies who took the time to share their insight and talents with us. 

For next month's activity we are going to be going over home canning and preserving and the safest ways to do that. We all want to be able to use the abundance that hopefully we receive from our gardens. What a great way to prepare for the winter and add to your food storage!

So please plan on attending, even if you don't think you will ever can or preserve anything, it is useful knowledge to have and may someday come in handy.

This Little Piggy...

For the activity this month we are going to be using the poem "This Little Piggy". We will be taking each line and using that to teach a mini lesson. 

This little piggy went to market: We will be discussing using coupons and sale shopping.
This little piggy stayed home: We will be discussing home making on a budget.
This little piggy had roast beef: We will be giving you meal planning ideas and other cooking tips.
This little piggy had none: We will be talking about a spiritual feast and being prepared so you are never with "none".
This little piggy laughed wee wee wee...: We will be talking about positive thinking and being happy.

Come join us for a fun and educational evening and stay for the sundae bar that will follow!
