Crockpot Ginger-Sweet Potato Chicken

Crockpot Ginger Sweet Potato Chicken | IntentionalByGrace.com

This post is by contributing writer, Jane. When my husband and I were still dating, we made a fun discovery: we both loved sweet potatoes! I mean, really loved them. We'd munch on sweet potato chips between classes, order sweet potato pancakes at Denny's, and make sweet potato casserole just for fun. I still squeal a bit when I find a new sweet potato recipe. I squeal again when I find Continue Reading

Menu Plan Monday – September 15th

Quick and easy meal ideas for an exhausting week.

We are in an exhausting season of life right now. I'm not sure why it's so Continue Reading

Intentional Toddler Time {11.5 months}

A round up of intentional toddler time activities for an 11.5 month old.

I love watching tiny toddlers explore, learn, and discover the world. They are always learning, and one of my greatest joys is giving my son something new to explore.

A basket of counting bears and some Continue Reading

9 Ways to Show Hospitality {When Hospitality is Hard}

9 Ways to Show Hospitality {When Hospitality is Hard} | Do you struggle to show hospitality as a family? Try these ideas for serving others. | IntentionalByGrace.com

By contributing writer, Amy When I think of hospitality, I picture our dining room table packed with extra chairs, extra people, and extra-good food. I imagine kids running circles around the house while grown-ups drink coffee and laugh over funny stories. The thought makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. But sometimes, that kind of hospitality doesn't come quite as easily as the picture Continue Reading

Menu Plan Monday – September 8th

menu plan - make your life easier and feel more organized!

I do not like not having a menu plan. When life is chaotic, unpredictable, and full, the last thing I want to think about on the fly is dinner. Last week, I failed to make a menu plan and when things got crazy, ordering carry-out was my go to. Accept grace. Move on. This week I'm starting fresh, walking in new mercies, and making a plan for my family. Since our breakfast and lunch is Continue Reading

Within a single week, Timmy's mode of transportation went from sometimes walking, sometimes crawling to a full blown walking machine! We had so much fun exploring and learning together this week.

No matter what containers and bowls I give him, he always goes and finds this one that you see in the Continue Reading

worth reading from my bookshelf to yours_edited-1

My goal is to read 25 books this year, which means I need to read at least two to three books a month to meet this goal. I have a reading list, but I'm giving myself grace to read books that aren't on my list as well. When I shared my reading list, many of you asked me to give updates about the book I'm reading. I really slacked on sharing my favorite books over the summer. You can see what I Continue Reading
