I Am Not Alone {Kari Jobe} cover by Kerri Pauls

This is my all time favourite songs! 
it has helped me through so many hard times. 
You are never alone.


When I walk through deep waters
I know that You will be with me
When I'm standing in the fire
I will not be overcome
Through the valley of the shadow
I will not fear
I am not alone
I am not alone
You will go before me
You will never leave me
In the midst of deep sorrow
I see Your light is breaking through
The dark of night will not overtake me
I am pressing into You
Lord, You fight my every battle
And I will not fear

You amaze me
Redeem me
You call me as Your own
You're my strength
You're my defender
You're my refuge in the storm
Through these trials
You've always been faithful
You bring healing to my soul

Touch The Sky {Hillsong United} cover by Kerri Pauls





What fortunes lies beyond the stars
Those dazzling heights too vast to climb
I got so high to fall so far
But I found heaven as love swept low

My heart beating, my soul breathing
I found my life when I laid it down
Upward falling, spirit soaring
I touch the sky when my knees hit the ground

What treasure waits within Your scars
This gift of freedom gold can't buy
I bought the world and sold my heart
You traded heaven to have me again

My heart beating, my soul breathing
I found my life when I laid it down
Upward falling, spirit soaring
I touch the sky when my knees hit the ground

Find me here at Your feet again
Everything I am, reaching out, I surrender
Come sweep me up in Your love again
And my soul will dance
On the wings of forever 

My heart beating, my soul breathing
I found my life when I laid it down
Upward falling, spirit soaring
I touch the sky when my knees hit the ground 

Find me here at Your feet again
Everything I am, reaching out I surrender
Come sweep me up in Your love again
And my soul will dance
On the wings of forever

Upward falling, spirit soaring
I touch the sky
When my knees hit the ground

Thanksgiving Meal

Us girls have been cooking up a storm for our gathering tomorrow.
All of the recipes we made are posted on my family's cooking blog, so I thought I'd take pics of all the food we prepped and share the links with you all. Because Thanksgiving food it THE BEST!


Today I chopped up all the veggies, and made the sauce for Stir Fry. Tomorrow we will toss the veggies in oil and salt, bake them for a bit, add sliced almonds and coat them in the sauce.

Mom always cooks the turkey very simply in water, with seasoning salt sprinkled on top.

Brooke peeled and cut up the potatoes, they will go in the fridge overnight covered in water, then tomorrow we will cook them, add margarine, milk, and salt, and whip them with a hand mixer. we will top them with fresh Gravy.

Becca made these delicious Duggar Rolls.


Brooke made the meatballs and Kaya made the sauce for Honey-Garlic Glazed Meatballs.

I made three boxes of cherry Jello, following the directions on the box. Then once it was almost set, I mixed in two cans of cherry pie filling and put it back in the fridge to set the rest of the way. Tomorrow we will mix it with cool whip right before we eat.

We always add a little less liquid than the box says...it makes it ten times better!

 And now for the best part, Jen and I made three different kinds of pies (and maybe a few extra for tonight ;) all with this pie crust




and Apple Pie...I just realized we haven't posted this one yet :o it is THE BEST ever. So I will be posting it here next week!


I hope you all have a great weekend! BE THANKFUL :)

Chains Hit The Ground

I’m holding on to You
It’s all I know to do
When fear has had me bound
When enemies surround
There’s freedom in this truth
My salvation is in You

And I remember the nails that You took for me
When You died in my shame and iniquity
Jesus, You have set me free
The thorns of my pain You wore in a crown
When You bowed Your head
Your love was poured out
And my chains hit the ground

You are the Rock I’ve found
Above the shifting ground
Amid a raging war
You’re the One I’m fighting for
For all of my years
My banner will be clear

I am Yours
And even though the waves, they crash below
I’m holding onto love
I’m holding onto love
I am Yours
Forever all my days, I lay before Your holy love
I’m holding onto love

Sour Cream Enchilades

I found this recipe when I was on THM last summer, but its so good that I eat it even when I'm not trying to eat healthy. Plus its a perfect way to use up those avocados that are going bad in your fridge!
Some people eat it with guacamole, but I prefer to top it with sour cream.
My favorite part about it is that the color of your sauce depends on what color of pepper you use!! it takes little to amuse me ;)

1/4 tsp. chili powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion salt
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup chicken, cut up (or more if you want)
4 sm tortilla shells
1/2-1 avocado


1/4 sweet pepper ( or 1/2 a small one)
1/4 cup cream cheese
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup water
1 tsp chicken soup base
1/4 cup sour cream
1/2 tsp minced garlic

1/2 cup cheese

- Mix spices together, add chicken, coat chicken with spices.
- Divide chicken mixture evenly between tortilla shells.
- Cut avocado in small chuncks and spread over chicken.
- Roll shells up and place in 8x8-inch baking pan.
-Mix sauce ingredients together in Ninja blender cup (or whatever you have) and pour over tortilla shells.
- Sprinkle with cheese and bake @350 for about 20 minutes until cheese is melted and enchilades are warmed through.
-Top with sour cream and ENJOY!
