Let. It. Go Melissa Taylor, Online Bible Study~ Week 1

While reading Let. It. Go., Chapter 1, I chuckled and squirm in my seat! Prior to my chronic illness become worst I totally identified with being extremely controlling. It was my way of letting everyone know that I was a great mom and wife.

But because of my severe chronic pain getting worst I’ve had to let things go. My husband and son tell me that I’m more relaxed and easy to live with. And I'm actually feeling better.

I’m looking forward to continuing to read the book. I know there are still areas in my life that I need to release from grip.

Wow, I'm so glad to have learned about this book from you!! When I was very sick, God took me through the long, hard (for me) process of letting go. It took me years. He's been so good to me and has brought me to better health, and I've found that the result is I'm living by my own strength more. The very thing I said I wouldn't do! I am so much healthier than before, but I still struggle with periods of illness because my immune system is still recovering from years of abuse. I don't like when I get sick again, but those moments humble me and remind me I'm literally not strong enough to be in control. I totally need Him.

And I totally need to read this book!! Just repinned that great picture, too!

Pancakes From Scratch - Betty Crocker Big Red Cookbook

I'm a huge fan of pancakes and love making them from scratch.  Here's the recipe that I've been using for years courtesy of Betty Crocker's Big Red Cookbook.

ps I don't add the sugar and ues 2% fat free milk.  I do let the recipe sit for few minutes to thicken.  And when including fruit I serve it at the table.  I don't like to mix it in. 

1 large egg
1 cup all purpose or whole wheat flour
3/4 cup milk

1 tablespoon granulated or packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

margarine, butter or shortening for the griddle or skillet.  I use margarine...we don't like the taste of shortening and butter can sometimes burn

Beat egg in medium bowl with hand beater or whisk until fluffy.  Beat in remaining ingredients except butter just until smooth.  For thinner pancakes, stir in additional 1 or 2 tablespoons of milk. 

Heat griddle or skillet over medium heat or to 375 degrees.  Grease griddle with butter/margarine …
