Pastor Jeremiah Steepek (pictured) transformed himself into a homeless person and went to the 10,000 member church that he was to be introduced as the head pastor at that morning. He walked around his soon to be church for 30 minutes while it was filling with people for service, only 3 people out of the 7-10,000 people said hello to him. He asked people for change to buy food - NO ONE in the church gave him change. He went into the sanctuary to sit down in the front of the church and was asked by the ushers if he would please sit n the back. He greeted people to be greeted back with stares and dirty looks, with people looking down on him and judging him.As he sat in the back of the church, he listened to the church announcements and such. When all that was done, the elders went up and were excited to introduce the new pastor of the church to the congregation. "We would like to introduce to you Pastor Jeremiah Steepek." The congregation looked around clapping with joy and anticipation. The homeless man sitting in the back stood up and started walking down the aisle. The clapping stopped with ALL eyes on him. He walked up the altar and took the microphone from the elders (who were in on this) and paused for a moment then he recited, “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’'The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’After he recited this, he looked towards the congregation and told them all what he had experienced that morning. Many began to cry and many heads were bowed in shame. He then said, "Today I see a gathering of people, not a church of Jesus Christ. The world has enough people, but not enough disciples. When will YOU decide to become disciples?" He then dismissed service until next week.Being a Christian is more than something you claim. It's something you live by and share with others. by sherri

Turkey or Chicken Tetrazzini - didn't have left over meat so I cooked up some ground turkey while I waited for the sauce to thicken. This recipe makes a lot and is delicious (Ryan even got the leftovers out of the freezer and helped finish them off...) BUT be prepared - this one takes a while! by arlene

If you’ve never been a country music or Tim McGraw fans, that’s all probably about to change! Tim started this song dedicating it to his wife and daughters. But when this sweet girl with Down Syndrome got up on stage, everything changed. This show was in Atlanta on July 13, 2014. Be prepared to completely melt, especially for the surprise at the end! by hannahmnt

A nice gift for teachers the first day of school. It's a TEACHERS FIRST AID KIT: Very simple. I got mini floss organizers at the craft store and made a little label in photoshop Then I filled them with Band-Aids, a hand-sanitizer, treats, and other small school stuff. I was inspired when I was saw this big craft box with school supplies. It is stinkin' cute! Then I filled them with Band -Aids, a hand-sanitizer, treats, and other small school stuff. I was inspired when I was saw this big craft box with school supplies. It is stinkin' cute! I wrapped it up with a tag. (The apple is from the "hello teacher kit" on house of 3). THE NOTE CAN READ: Twas the night before school started, and all through the house. All the kids were stirring, trying to find their new blouse. Their backpacks were hung on their doorknobs with care, In hopes that I'd wake up in time to do their hair. I want to be nestled, all snug in my bed, But I'm glad I stayed up and made teacher gifts instead. Because teachers need kuddos and treats that bring cheer, And I am just hoping we have a good school year! by cheryl

New Beginnings. #pascalcampion FIRST sketch in a WEEK! I was sick this whole past week and just could NOT draw at all. Even if I could get up and get in front of a page or a computer, nothing came out. This is the very first sketch since last week... kind of super moody, but it probably has to do with the fact that I was just out for a while. by Hercio Dias

The Music Man (Shirley Jones and Robert Preston - 76 Trombones). Shirley Jones was so sweet and adorable in this film, and Robert Preston such a rascal--but a rascal with a heart of gold. Wonderful song, wonderful movie. This was my mother's favorite movie. She went to the thearter to see it a half-dozen times, something she never did. And when VHS machines came out, I got her a copy of the Music Man for Christmas. She was so happy! by harriett

I was asked last night, with all the increased hatred of law enforcement, and the utter failure of the justice system, why not just strike and walk off the job. He went on to say that maybe then people would want law enforcement back. I said it was a matter of my oath, and public trust. If I walk out in times of trouble, how will you ever be able to trust someone that abandoned you? We hold the line, and pay in our blood. We do this for ALL we serve. by christine

Whenever we ask a child to do something and he or she responds with "I'd love to!" then a pom pom goes in the jar.  When it's full, we go out for frozen yogurt. We don't do it ALL the time, but it's an investment in a habit that has resulted in sweet responses (even without the yogurt). -April by marissa
