Welcome!

Welcome to my blog! I want to thank you for visiting and I hope that over the course of time you will find my pages full of encouragement, laughter, recipes, homeschooling advice, awesome crafts, and the general messiness of life. I personally am head over heels in love with Jesus Christ, so you'll get my perspective on the messiness of Christian life as well. Yes, every one's life can be a little messy at times; but I believe that it's the messiest moments that are the most meaningful. I look forward to journeying with you and hope you will visit often.

Blessings and love,
Reyna

Walking in Your Destiny

I've often wondered why I am here, and being a believer in Jesus Christ, it is more imperative to know and try your best to fulfill the destiny you were created for. I have always believed to some degree that once a person fulfills their destiny that they are called home. This theory is no respecter of persons, with children and even newborn babies fulfilling their reason for being created. This is also one of the reasons I am so against abortion, that these un-born babies never get the opportunity to fulfill their destiny. It was a painful journey even for me, to come to this realization; after losing my first born child to a genetic disorder I was unaware I had. She was a full term still born, but her life and death forever changed me and it was through losing her that I came to truly know Christ as my savior and His Holy Spirit as my Comforter. Often we try to decipher why God has placed us here and what we are to do to please Him. I hope that what I'm about to share gives…

Fulfilling Your Destiny

A friend of mine is struggling with finding the perfect job. Something that they don't hate waking up to every morning, and would actually give them a sense of purpose. My advice to her was to look at her gifts and try and do something that would fall somewhere along those lines. I think what most of us struggle with when it comes to work, is finding something that motivates us beyond it's monetary reward. This holds true particularly for someone who can't keep a job, or changes jobs very frequently. God has given every human two things, besides the immeasurable other gifts, talents and purpose. As humans if we can tune our minds into God's radar and think about what gifting or talents He has given us, then we would understand how to fulfill our purpose.

I think that when you do what you are called to do, God honors that and increases you in that area. Now that doesn't mean you won't ever be met with challenges, but it sets you up for greater success in overco…

Stir Fry Anyone???

One of the easiest go to meals in my house is Chinese food. I know, I know, most people see making homemade Chinese as intimidating and difficult; but honestly when you have a shellfish allergy you pretty much have no choice. My options were to learn to make it myself or give up one of my favorite cuisines. Taking the Chinese food away from a New Yorker is like taking away chocolate. It won't kill you, but it definitely won't make you happy. So when I realized I could no longer eat commercially prepared Chinese food I set out to learn how to make it myself. That being said, there are a few fundamentals you need to know about Chinese food. The first thing is don't be afraid of the ingredients. The basic flavors in Chinese cuisine is ginger, garlic, green onion, sugar and vinegar. marinating meats in any combination of these things is going to give you some pretty tasty results. The second thing is if you don't have a fish allergy, don't be afraid to try something ne…
