Enabling Love

Why is there a picture of a door here?  Because the next step is yours to take. You can open the door to something good in your life and start replacing the struggles, one by one with good choices. What do you long for? 

A great meal? A good book? Information? Check back and you will find all of those options on this page!  We want you to be armed and ready for your day in the best way! 

What floats your boat on a winters day? A good cup of coffee? A homemade soup or bread? How about a book you just can't put down?  Check it out! 

Because it's Valentine's week, which may not mean much to you, show yourself some love.  You know your loved ones choices don't change the fact that you are loved by Almighty God, by friends who know you well and hopefully by you.  Sounds kind of funny, right? But when's the last time you really sat with yourself and had something special just to celebrate you? That doesn't come easy but make this the week you do. Don't let all the media hype make you feel like you're missing out. Just let these words fill the void: "I love you with an everlasting love. I have drawn you with unfailing kindness"  (Jer 31:3) 

So, no matter what you've heard in the world, hunker down with a warm cup of coffee or tea and think about the words from God to you.  

Happy Valentine's Day!

Cheesy Broccoli Rice Casserole: 


1 1/2 cups cooked white rice
1 onion, chopped
1 tablespoon butter
1 cup white wine (optional)
2 1/2 cups light cream
2 1/2 cups chicken broth
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
5 cups broccoli florets
2 cups cheese (I used a mix of white and yellow cheddar)

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

  1. Start cooking your rice as directed on package.  
  2. Meanwhile, sauté your chopped onions in butter until translucent.
  3. Add your white wine and chicken broth and bring to a boil.
  4. Whisk together your cream and dijon until well blended.
  5. Lower your heat to medium, and then add the cream mixture to the sauce, and stir to blend.
  6. Add broccoli to the sauce and cook until crisp-tender.
  7. Remove from heat, combine with rice and cheese, setting aside a little cheese for on top of the casserole.
  8. Place the broccoli rice mixture into a baking dish and bake for 30 minutes.


Cooking time includes cooking time for rice, and assumes you will be cooking the sauce and broccoli while rice is cooking. 
As a side dish, this would be about 9 servings, 1/2 cup serving per person.
