Girls, have you ever had a really hard day and nothing has gone right? You got up late, had to rush through breakfast to get started on school work, then you’ve got piano practice and chores to do before helping mom with dinner, and the list goes on and on? You can say—no shout—with Elijah, “I’ve had enough, Lord!” (1 Kings 19:4)

Dear Young Ladies,
I have found that exercise helps a lot! I especially like doing it around the house, like…doing just ten jumping jacks. Or sometimes I have races with my siblings. That’s pretty fun!
I also like running in the backyard with my dogs. You could also make a chart for yourself.
And one thing that helped me get into the routine of exercising is to only do a little bit one day, then do more and more each day so that you get better.
Also make up some stuff and mix it in with other exercises, and then have some fun with naming them weird stuff like “Hippopotamus Jump,” or something like that. Well, I hope you find my tips useful.
In His Service,

Ahh . . . Dessert!! What a sweet thought! As the leaves fall from the trees and snow begins to fall (at least in my part of the country!), I find myself spending quite a bit of time in the kitchen experimenting with new recipes and making old favorites. Desserts are my favorite things to bake. Most desserts are chocked full off unhealthy fats, sugars, and artificial ingredients. As I bake, my desire is to produce a flavorful yet healthy product.
Ever since I started cooking as a young child, my parents have reinforced this important principle for quality food:
“Quality food should not only taste good, but it should
look good, be good for you, and be good for the budget.”
This principle has served to guide me as I’ve progressed in my cooking skills. However, it is challenging to apply this principle to desserts, especially the “be good for you” part! Here are some of the ways I’ve learned and ways I’m working on to make desserts fit the principle:

"Panning for Gold" Proverbs 31 Study Series Part 5
Proverbs 31:14 says the Virtuous Woman is like the merchants’ ships; she bringeth her food from afar. We must not be so quick to spiritualize everything in Scripture (though I think that we can safely draw some applications in time), but first let us actually consider what is being stated here by God in His Word.
