His church is to bear His superscription, and thus testify to the world that God has sent His Son to be the Saviour of the world.... Love is to be interwoven as threads of gold in all their actions. 

Every Christian who is happy in the Lord will work zealously to bring the same happiness into the heart and life of one who is in need and affliction. Followers of Christ will produce their own happiness in the hearts of others by performing Christlike works.. OHC 185.2-OHC 185.3
... We must look on the faults of others not to condemn, but to restore and heal. OHC 185.5


We love because He first loved us.

White Bean Coconut Curry

I do like to serve this dish with rice. There is something about the texture of rice and the creamy sauce that says absolute “comfort” to me; the perfect food for any day of the year. The best part of this dish is that it is also healthy and hardy, delicious and beautiful, what’s not to like! See the RECIPE HERE!

Things I love about summer: flip flops, grilling, summer fruits, and no bake treats. No bake treats made with 5 main ingredients, in 10 minutes, that will add no extra heat to your already hot summer home AND that taste like brownies! Sounds pretty perfect right? Case in point: these No Bake Brownie Energy Bites also known as bliss balls. See the RECIPE HERE!
