Bread for the Journey

Man shall not live on bread alone,
but on every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.
Matthew 4:4

My grandmother loved her bread...in any form! She baked double-decker buns (zwieback)...and white bread to feed an army. But more than bread, she loved her Bible...which I now have, complete with all her notations. How I treasure her Bible...a continual reminder to me that life is about so much more than the bread we eat!

For the most part, this blog has been about passing along our favorite recipes...and preserving those that grandma used to make. Beginning today...you will no longer find a recipe here on Sunday...but a little 'food for the soul'. We here at Mennonite Girls Can Cook will be passing along a few 'morsels' from our experience...to encourage and uplift you along your journey. May you have a most blessed Sunday!

  2. Yes...I concur. Food for the soul is what many seek...hunger for. God Bless as you begin to set the table and serve from His bountiful feast.

  7. That is a great idea and how wonderful to have grandma's Bible. The Bible is so much more than a book. It is an owner's guide, a comfort, has recipes for a happy life, loving letters from the Father and so, so much more.

    "Gottes Segen mit euch alle." God's blessing with you all.
    My heritage as a Mennonite is the German language, just thought I'd use it to bless as I'm being blessed.

  14. What an encouragement! I love the recipes you post and have made several of them but as you say there are more important things in life than food for our bellies. I look forward to seeing what comes now on Sunday's.
    Thanks.

  15. How beautiful. Whenever I have time to look at blogs, yours is the first I visit. I've told several women in my family about your site and I know they are blessed by you all, too. Now I will know that their spirits will be ministered to as well! God bless you ladies as you go about your days serving unseen friends a daily nourishing heap of God's good gifts...
