Americans see the saying “In God We Trust” on our money constantly. Now, let me tell you about “In You We Trust." “In You We Trust” is an awareness project for the Sex Trafficking of minors, an epidemic that is plaguing our nation. Founded by Jen Rose and Marian Lefeld, it uses art to create a visual of the crime that so few see and so many ignore.
So I've had a looooooooonnnnnnng week full of discombobulations (Ummm, is that even a term?). Anyway, sometimes, I just need some really cool words and encouragement to get through. And you know what? The people who made these quotes were frustrated too but they seemed to come through alright. So if they can do it, so can you and I! (Graphic designs by my sister Nia.)
It's that time again.
Wash day, the most dreaded date on any natural's calendar.
The main reason I have found so many women dislike washing their hair is because of detangling, the big d-word. For some people, detangling means cutting knots, yanking combs, and wasting hours upon hours. But maintaining healthy hair should never be stressful!! Here are some ways I’ve turned detangling from a stress mess to a breeze!
Guest Post From Christian Blogger Megan of ProclaimingHisLove.weebly.com
Hi! I'm Megan. I'm in my teenaged years, and am currently homeschooling. I play the guitar, and am currently learning the fiddle.
My Christian Instagram account is,@ProclaimingHisLove. & my blog is ProclaimingHisLove.weebly.com. I want nothing more than to share God’s Amazing Love to all that I can. I'm just here to ‘Proclaim His Love’!
Sometimes in life, things don't always go the way we want things to. But what we need to realize is that God is preparing a blessing in disguise.
Hi, guys!! This is Nia, Jada, and Bailey. We are so excited to introduce our blog's first guest contributor, Ruthie White!! Nia met Ruthie a few years ago at Teenpact (which we can't wait to write an article about when we return in Feburary!!) Recently, Ruthie started an Instagram page (ruthies_foods), featuring a variety of her amazing creations, such as tiramisu, roasted lamb, boeuf bourguignon! We were so inspired by the skill and creativity she thrives in at such a young age. We've asked for a few of her recipes for ourselves and are so excited to share with you one of her delicious, fun, family-friend recipes. Take it away, Ruthie!
Hey y'all, my name is Ruthie. I'm 16 years old and in the tenth grade.
A little bit about me…I'm a homeschooler and a blue belt in Taekwondo. I also love to cook…that's a little obvious isn't it? I'm planning to be a chef when I go to college. In addition to cooking and kicking people, I'm also very involved in my church. In conjunction with one of the teenagers at my church, I help run the elementary kids Sunday school class, sing on the worship team, and help my father (the pastor) with a radio program and podcast called “Everyday.” You can hear us online at WTIX 98.3 FM at 0830 on Sundays. Oh…and my dad is in the Army, so we use military time a lot. Well, that's enough about me, on to the recipe!
This recipe is so simple that anyone can make it, and it’s easily adaptable. I made this in the smallest iron skillet I own, which is about 6.5 inches in diameter, so all the measurements I have are for that pan. Adjust the measurements for the ingredients as needed.
If you choose to use an iron skillet, it won't need to be greased. Just let it soak in hot water overnight and then scrub it clean with more hot water the next day. It'll wash out perfectly. If you don’t have an iron skillet, then use any pan you have available…just be sure to spray lightly with cooking oil.
One cup of chocolate chips
About 27 medium size marshmallows
Graham Crackers or Nilla wafers
Start with one cup of chocolate chips. I used semi-sweet, but I'm sure any kind of chips will work...those are just the ones my mother keeps in the house, lol. Anywho, put the chips in a microwave safe container, and melt them in the microwave. Mine took about a minute. Make sure to stir at several intervals, because chocolate has a tendency to burn. Next, spread the melted chips on the bottom of the pan and place the marshmallows on top. For the pan I used it took 27 regular marshmallows. Bake until the marshmallows are golden brown. At 350 degrees it took 5-10 minutes. Serve immediately. The serving size depends on the size pan you use. This dip is best when served with graham crackers, although Nilla wafers will probably work just as well.
