Raw Cat Feeding (Plus Cat Food Recipe)

Raw Cat Feeding (Plus Cat Food Recipe) | I don't believe in spending exorbitant amounts of money to keep an ailing animal alive, but I do believe in humane treatment and loving care as much as possible. When our cat Ezra’s kidneys were ailing, I researched good diets that could help her. Over the recent years I had not given much attention to the type of diet a cat should eat: rather than Friskies, a diet fitted to the feline nature. | GNOWFGLINS.com

Food as Ministry, Part 2

Food as Ministry, Part 2 | When we came to our current church when my husband was hired as the worship pastor, one of my first questions was, "Does someone deliver meals to people after an illness, birth, death, move, or other time of need?"

Here's how our food ministry works -- from starting it to communicating to keeping it going. | GNOWFGLINS.com

My husband and I — because we are worship leaders at our church — have our own simple definition of the word “ministry”: meeting needs. As the body of Christ, we are to function as Christ Himself would, loving others, serving others, showing compassion, praying for others, and meeting needs. For someone with a passion for food (like me!), this is where gifting and ministry collide. [by Lindsey Dietz]

Hard Honey Candies plus Other Gifts from the Heart | Most of the time, my gifts go straight to someone else's belly. ;) Recently, I turned old flour sacks into gift bags filled with scrumptious goodies.

They were well-received and fun to make as well! | GNOWFGLINS.com
