Donut Day!!

Making donuts is a fun fall tradition of ours and we look forward to biting into the delicious donuts when donut day arrives!  Maybe try making them at your house someday-they are a very fun family project and the yumminess is rewarding!

Here's Joe eating his first homeade donut!

Yummy breakfast of donuts, homeade sausages, and scrambled eggs!

Here's our favorite recipe! Comment below when you make them-we'd love to hear how they turned out!

2 cups milk

1 cup sugar or 1/2 cup honey

3/4 cup butter

2tsp salt

1 Tablespoon yeast

1 C. warm water

3 eggs

10-11 cups flour (we often use half whole wheat and half unbleached white flour)

Scald milk. Stir in sugar, butter and salt; set aside to cool. Dissolve yeast in the warm water; set aside. Beat eggs. When the milk mixture is luke-warm, mix in the eggs and yeast mixture. Stir in just enough flour to make a soft dough. Let dough rise until double in size. Roll out and cut into doughnuts. Let rise again until light. Fry in 365 degrees (we use coconut oil).  Sugar or glaze as desired. Makes 65 delicious doughnuts!!!

"O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in Him."

Family Camp 2020

 In September, families from all over the United States and Canada joined us for an unforgettable week as we listened to truths from the Word of God, praised the Lord together in song, built one another up in edifying conversations, established new friendships, shared testimonies of Christ's work in our lives, and played, laughed, and prayed together! The speakers chose relevant topics for the sessions praying that   everyone would leave convicted, encouraged, and motivated! 

If you've been thinking about the possibility of attending family camp next year and would like to know  what it is all about, here are a few highlights to give you an idea of what to expect!....

   At homeschool family camp, we value families of all sizes in all stages of life. This includes everyone from newborn babies to grandparents and every stage in between. This year, we even had a couple that had been married for only three weeks! It is an amazing atmosphere! It is family-focused and the whole point is strengthening families to grow and live for the Lord together!

Now here's the pictures from the two weeks of camp!

"Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them. Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord. Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged. Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh; not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God; And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;"
Colossians 3:18-23
