6313. boys asking theological questions, talking about God and Heaven
6314. a date with my favorite six-year-old

6315. the way he leans over his handlebars to go faster

6328. grace to pray when I don't feel like it and have only a mustard seed of faith

6330. Jesus' perfect obedience in my place

Tell me more about bruschetta pizza!

I discovered a podcast you might enjoy. It's called Grace Talks by the author of the Life in Grace blog. Just thought you might want to check it out!

Danielle, I need to post the recipe. Have been meaning to since last summer. Soon! You hardly need one though; it's pretty simple. Your favorite homemade crust (we have a whole wheat one with garlic and seasonings that we really like), sausage and cheese but no sauce. Then smother the top after it comes out of the oven with a mixture of diced tomatoes, fresh basil, garlic and a splash of balsamic vinegar. SO DELICIOUS.

Thanks for the podcast rec!
