Sweet Like Honey

our family's journal of God at work

Our Family

These are all recent as of today (Spring 2012). Rob, Cassie, Matthew, Christopher, Sarah, Laura and Hannah. I put these here mostly for friends and family, but also for anyone who wants to see that we are real people here ๐Ÿ™‚ We are a family seeking to follow Jesus Christ and are learning that we cannot do that in our own strength. We need Him desperately. We happen to homeschool. I personally feel pretty strongly about it but it isn’t our identity. We do enjoy getting to go exploring when the weather is nice, dragging our books with us, and then staying inside when it is hot and getting LOTS of bookwork done. We enjoy many opportunities to interact with our community together as a family. Our house isn’t perfect (sometimes we ignore it and go looking for wildflowers and animals). We are still trying to figure stuff out. We’ve never been able to set a perfect bedtime for the kids and I have finally learned to accept that. We don’t get it all done. I’m learning to live on my face, so to speak–when I don’t I fall–unfortunately this happens a lot. We have a lot of growing in love to do. Our relationships aren’t perfect. But we try to forgive and move on. One of my favorite passages of Scripture is “It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassion fails not. they are
new every morning: great is Thy faithfulness” Lamentations 3:21-22.

  1. HI Cassie and family:

    Nice message. All is well here. The Lord is GOOD! (To say the least!)

    Love you guys!

  2. Cassie,

    My mom told me about your blog and the wonderful bread you made for her. We (mom and I) both have Celiac and mom said the bread you made was delicious. We wondered what recipe that was?

    I have added your blog to my favorites to keep an eye on.

    Looks like you are doing so well, even with the recent miscarriage. Let me know if there is a specific way I can pray for you during this time.

    Love,
    Kelly

This is definetly a gift God has given you sis and I am glad you are sharing it with us! In the short time I have known you and your family it has been a true blessing!
    Love in Christ,Tammy

  4. Cassie,

    Grace and Peace to you,

  5. Hi Cassie! What a beautiful family! Thanks for dropping by and for all your thoughtful comments. It’s fun to find face to face friends in the blogosphere. I just realized that Guam was a dozen years ago. Can you believe that? Me neither.

    Have a great weekend!

  6. I know I just left a comment on your post, but I noticed here (besides your beautiful family!) that you are using “My Father’s Word” – I just got my package from them for Kindergarten in the mail recently and hope to “start” soon…. maybe we could arrange a phone call sometime and talk about that… I would love some help!

  7. Hi Cassie:
    I couldn’t sleep and happened to stumble across your blog through wordpress. I enjoyed your blog and am blessed by your writing. Keep your faith.

  8. Enjoyed looking at your blog! My son is gluten intolerant, so I may find some of your recipes helpful. Wondering how your gf sourdough is going? I would love to make good gf sourdough pancakes!! We are also a home school family — three little ones so far, the oldest in kindergarten. Loved the C.J. Mahaney quote!! God is so good, isn’t He?

    • Hi Ginger! I hope you enjoy the recipes. My whole family loves them. And the sourdough bread is going great. We really enjoy it. It is the only bread I make now. God is good! Thank you for saying hi!

  9. Hi there Cassie. I hope you and yours are doing well these days.

    I was talking to Lisa when they were up visiting the other day and she mentioned that you are lactose intolerant. My husband Matt is also lactose intolerant. I was wondering and kind of hoping that you might have some if any recipes that would typically have milk products in them but that you have revised or changed?

    I have with my mom’s help found products like Tofutti which help out a lot! They make “ice cream”, sour cream, cream cheese…etc.

    Anyway…I was just wanting to see if you had any ideas that could help with dealing with lactose intolerance.

    Thank you Cassie in advance even if you don’t have anything like this! Your blog is very nice too. I enjoy reading it.

    Hope your weekend goes very well.

  10. Hi,
    I just read your article on iodine and fluoride. Hope you are well. Coconut is AMAZING for the thyroid and all of your health. Take a TBLS or two a day and feel the difference in energy and health. Also, look for a book entitled “A more excellent way” by Henry Wright…God can heal you from everything.
    Michelle

    • Thanks Michelle,

      Coconut is a great health food but it is high in sulphur which can be a problem for someone who is really toxic–sulphur detoxes the body very quickly. Some people like myself have a hard time dealing with toxins once they are out of storage in the blood stream and it can be dangerous to detox too quickly. So, sometimes I use coconut and sometimes I avoid it for a while, depending on how toxic I am. It is not a good idea to tell people to take this or that–it might not be right for them based on their particular issues, even though the item/food itself is really great for health. I have MTHFR so have to be really careful.

      Cassie
