More Baking and Talking About Jesus

It is becoming increasingly difficult teaching someone how to bake as a gluten free woman!  The temptation became nearly unbearable this weekend when Scovia and I spent the whole night up baking Clea Wootton’s famous tea cakes, but if my suffering as a late night gluten intolerant baker is for Christ, then I won’t complain.
