I am a ‘Kept’ Woman!

There have been times when I thought I would lose my mind, but God kept me sane. Isaiah 26:3 –

A Food Foundation for Healthy Families

Last week my 14 year-old daughter, Mary, and I did some market research for boxed cereals. Our project entailed checking price per serving and reading the ingredients lists.
